Wayne County (Detroit) Attempt to Void Black Votes
« on: November 17, 2020, 07:26:21 pm »
This was a hot topic on MSNBC this evening:  I can't tell you how heated I was when the news came down about the initial vote to not certify the results...

After what was an unprecedented 2-2 deadlock along partisan lines, with the two Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers voting against certifying the county's November election results, the board unanimously voted to certify the results late Tuesday night.

The board also passed a resolution calling on Michigan Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to conduct an independent comprehensive audit of all of the jurisdictions in the county that recorded unexplained discrepancies between the number of absentee ballots recorded as cast and the number of absentee ballots counted.

All four members of the board unanimously supported the certification of the August primary election, which also saw unexplained discrepancies.

After initially voting against certifying the election results, Monica Palmer, the Republican chair of the committee, said she would be open to certifying the election results for some jurisdictions but not Detroit and others that recorded unexplained discrepancies.

Representative Tlaib of Detroit, Michigan recently tweeted:

"Our people are amazing. Hundreds of Wayne County residents waited hours to give public comment. One after another demanded our democracy is upheld and the Board of Wayne County Canvassers came back and voted unanimously to certify."
