I have it seen it a thousand times where people have made decisions and then changed them based on information that would make the original decision looking foolish coming to light.
For example, look at what happens when convictions get overturned and people get released from prison when it is found out that the cops did indeed get the wrong guy.
When it comes to elections, you want to make sure that the people that are involved know that they have made the right decision.
Two Republican members of the Wayne County election board said they want to rescind their votes certifying the results of the election in the county, which includes Detroit, because they were subjected to abuse and lied to on the night they agreed to certify the vote totals.
On Tuesday, Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chairwoman Monica Palmer and fellow Republican member William Hartmann refused to certify the vote, citing irregularities. That left the four-member board deadlocked at 2-2.
After the two Republicans were subject to criticism and abuse that they detail in sworn affidavits, they agreed to let the certification go forward in exchange for a complete audit of the election by the state.
When Wednesday arrived, however, the state said it would not honor the deal.
“Essentially you saw two individuals on the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, who have a ministerial responsibility to certify the county canvass of election results, refusing to do so on baseless claims, and that were ultimately clerical errors that occurred in nearly every election in nearly every jurisdiction,” Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said, according to ClickonDetroit. Benson is a Democrat who was endorsed by Biden during her 2018 campaign.
Palmer and Hartmann said Wednesday they were therefore rescinding their approval and could take the issue to court.
“I voted not to certify, and I still believe this vote should not be certified,” Hartmann said in an affidavit. “Until these questions are addressed, I remain opposed to certification of the Wayne County results.”
