Michigan GOP state senators request full audit of election to ensure ‘faith in the integrity’ of the process

With the outcome of the 2020 presidential election still in flux amid allegations of voter fraud, the corrupt media is working feverishly to dispel these accusations while desperately trying to move on to an incoming Biden administration.

Amid recounts, audits, and pending legal challenges in multiple states, it’s instructive how vigorous Democrats and their media allies are fighting attempts at transparency to ensure the integrity of election results.

President Trump’s campaign saw an “important legal victory” Thursday in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania when a judge ruled that segregated ballots may not be counted, and there was a positive step in Michigan when Republican state senators requested a full audit of that state’s election results.

The GOP lawmakers are requesting the audit before the state officially certifies the election results.

Citing a “glitch” in the Dominion Voting Systems software and allegations of voting irregularities detailed in a lawsuit by the Trump campaign, the Republican senators sent letters Wednesday to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and the state Board of Canvassers, The Blaze reported.

“Every citizen deserves to have faith in the integrity of the election process and its outcome,” the lawmakers say in the letters. “It is our responsibility, as elected public servants, to assure the people of Michigan of the process’s integrity through complete transparency and the faithful investigation of any allegations of wrongdoing, fraud, or abuse.”

Biden currently holds a lead of 146,123 votes in Michigan, a state the Trump carried in 2016.

Georgia announced on Wednesday the state will conduct an audit of the election, recounting by hand millions of ballots cast there last week.

“Now, we must take every possible step to ensure that all Michiganders, and all Americans, have confidence that the State of Michigan conducted this election with integrity and accuracy,” the GOP senators in Michigan added.

The Blaze reporter Chris Pandolfo noted that the “ask” doesn’t mean an audit will be held, pointing out that Michigan has yet to agree to the request.

For what it’s worth — and it’s worth plenty in today’s polarizing times — Secretary of State Benson is a Democrat who called the Trump lawsuit “meritless.” Heavy-handed Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who is busy trying to cancel the holidays over rising cases of COVID-19, is also a Democrat.

In sharing the letter online, GOP state Sen. Lana Theis said “unfair obstacles” in the voting process affects all residents.

“We must take every possible step to ensure that all Michiganders, and all Americans, have confidence that the State of Michigan conducted this election with integrity and accuracy,” Sen. Theis said on Facebook. “That can be best accomplished by a thorough audit and a verification that our election law and processes were correctly administered. Any fraudulently processed votes and unfair obstacles placed in front of legal poll challengers and watchers disenfranchise the lawful vote of every citizen of Michigan, regardless of their political affiliation.”

The president’s son and namesake, Donald Trump Jr., responded in tweet: “Good. With so many irregularities, for Americans to ever have faith in our systems again we need full audits everywhere!!!”
