Local officials in Detroit were accused of impropriety, voter suppression, and election interference reports Fox News.
The outcome of whether Michigan is counted as a Republican state of a Democratic state is still undetermined.
There are odd goings-on as officials barred people from entering the room and cardboard was placed over the windows.
Stuart Sandler said, “There were all kinds of chicanery, including ballots that came in reportedly in the middle of the night at 3:30 a.m. – 35,000 ballots that were deceptively brought in.”
“There have been a lot of irregularities and a lack of integrity. They’re not letting challengers in, they’re not letting them get food or water. When they do, they’re not letting them come back.”
“There are all sorts of disruptions to the process.”
“There’s a lack of integrity there. The people of Michigan made their choice and they’ve been trying to disrupt the process. And we’re reviewing our options.”
Republican John James, a businessman, and Iraq War veteran is running against Democratic Sen. Gary Peters.
A source close to John James’ campaign claimed that poll challengers “weren’t even able to get close enough to the ballot for the voter rolls to confirm that the ballots are credible, that people didn’t already vote.”
“And then the Wayne County Clerk (Cathy M. Garrett) … was on CNN this morning, and she didn’t know how many votes were left in Wayne County, which is where Detroit is,” the source added.
“(Garrett) said multiple different low numbers and CNN even called her out on it.”
From Fox News:
Republican John James’ Michigan Senate campaign on Wednesday accused local officials of impropriety, voter suppression, and election interference, as the state continues its counting process to determine which candidate won.
The allegations came as chaos unfolded outside a vote tally room at the TCF Center in downtown Detroit where all mail-in absentee ballots are collected. By Wednesday, officials barred people from coming into the room and had placed cardboard over the windows to obstruct the public’s view.
Michigan’s Secretary of State previously said she was expecting 2.5 million absentee ballots. By Wednesday morning, however, that total — the source alleged — increased to 5.6 million, with the majority going up in places like Detroit.
Fox News on Wednesday projected that former Vice President Joe Biden has won the state of Michigan, leaving him with just one major swing state to win before he obtains the necessary 270 votes to claim the White House.
