Michigan Bureau of Elections is under fire after the Michigan grassroots group “Unlock Michigan” sued them because the state agency refused to accept their petition to repeal Gretchen Whitmer’s emergency lockdown.
The Michigan Bureau of Elections has recommended the certification of a petition that would repeal a law underpinning many of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive orders issued early in the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Board of State Canvassers will consider the bureau’s recommendation at Thursday’s meeting even as a lawsuit seeks a halt to the board’s consideration of Unlock Michigan’s petition.
“If the Board of Canvassers does its duty on Thursday, this can be in front of the Legislature as soon as next week,” Unlock Michigan spokesman Fred Wszolek said Monday.
“Unlock Michigan” launched their campaign as the hypocrite Democrat Governor continues to ruin small businesses and lives across the state with her failed draconian lockdown policies.

This same agency approved of the fraudulent elections in the state but won’t approve a people’s petition!
They are openly flaunting their tyranny.
An excerpt from FREEP.COM reports:
A group that sponsored a petition drive to repeal a state emergency law asked the Michigan Supreme Court Friday to order a state elections panel to certify its efforts.
Unlock Michigan went to court after the Board of State Canvassers deadlocked 2-2, along partisan lines, on certifying its petition to repeal the Emergency Powers of Governor Act of 1945.
“In refusing to act, the board failed to fulfill its clear duty to certify and violated plaintiffs’ constitutional rights,” Unlock Michigan and two voters who signed its petition said in a court filing. Disputes over certification of ballot proposals now go directly to the Supreme Court, which is where they have generally ended up anyway.
The emergency law became a hot button issue last spring after Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer used it to issue a stay-home order and other restrictions to address the coronavirus pandemic, over the objections of the Republican-controlled Legislature.
