The must-read deep dive into Michigan’s 2020 election, erroneous voter fraud claims
It’s worth taking a moment to read Politico’s latest deep dive into the state of Michigan’s Nov. 3, 2020 General Election controversy. In the end, one Republican lawyer’s decision to simply stick to the law as it is written cemented Michigan’s election outcome, upholding more than five million votes in a record-breaking year for the state’s voter turnout. A lot of the unproven claims about voter fraud came directly from the Michigan Republican Party and President Donald Trump himself. Like clockwork, one can always depend on controversies—sometimes mini-scandals—to spring up by noontime on any given Election Day. Much of this owed to months of tireless preparation by election officials at the state and local level.
