Republican Wayne County Board Members Seeking To Rescind Votes

2018 election

Two Michigan Republicans who reversed course and voted in favor of certifying the election results in the state’s largest county — population wise — have come forward and stated they were pressured into it and now want to rescind their votes.

Monica Palmer, Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chairwoman, and William Hartmann, two of the GOP members on the four-person board, have filed affidavits on Wednesday evening noting they had been “improperly pressured” to cast their votes in favor of certification. They also said that the Democrats residing on the board went back on their promise to seek to do an audit of votes from Detroit.

Palmer and Hartmann said in their affidavits, published with a report on the website JustTheNews, that they thought they had a firm commitment to the audit. However, Palmer said in her document that Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, said later she did not view their resolution that asked for an audit as binding.

“I felt misled,” Palmer told the Post Wednesday before signing the affidavit. “I stand firm in not certifying Wayne County without the audit.”

Hartmann, who made similar claims in his affidavit, did not respond to a message from the Post seeking comment.

Jonathan Kinloch, the board’s vice chairman and a Democrat, told the Post that it is too late for Palmer and Hartmann to rescind their votes because the certified results have already been sent to Benson, in compliance with state election rules.

He then went on to slam the two GOP members for their requests.

“Do they understand how they are making us look as a body?” Kinloch said. “We have such an amazing and important role in the democratic process, and they’re turning it on its head.”

Apparently, Kinloch and the two Republicans had come to an agreement on a compromise to seek an audit of results coming from Detroit after both Palmer and Hartmann discovered the official list of folks who voted did not match the number of ballots received.

Kinloch, however, says that the Republicans already knew what they were agreeing to on Tuesday. The board has yet to ask Benson for a formal audit. He then went on to accuse the pair of caving in to pressure from the Trump administration.

The Boston Marathon bomber will receive a stimulus check. And yes, it will be for the same amount that you will get. That’s not a joke. And he’s not the only criminal who will get it, either. Thanks for everything, Dems! Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Senate Democrats blocked an amendment by Republicans on Saturday that would have stopped taxpayer-funded stimulus checks from going to illegal aliens and incarcerated criminals. Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (AR), Ted Cruz (TX), and Bill Cassidy (LA) offered an amendment on the Senate floor to block prisoners from being able to receive stimulus checks, which was blocked in a 49-50 vote.

Donald Trump Goes Scorched Earth on ‘Disloyal & Very Bad Senator’ Lisa Murkowski

Say goodbye, Lisa!!

The GOP doesn’t need centrists in the upper and lower chambers. There are far too many liberals in Congress as it is. The left doesn’t need more votes. It’s time for RINO’s like Murkowski, Romney, Toomey, Cassidy, and Sasse to head on back over to the private sector. Donald Trump will do his best to soon make that a reality. From Washington Examiner: Former President Donald Trump will not be supporting Alaska GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s bid for a fourth term. The former president announced on Saturday that he’ll be traveling to the Last Frontier State to campaign against Murkowski ahead of her 2022 reelection bid, according to Politico. CONTINUED: “I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse,” he said. “I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.” Murkowski, a centrist, has long been willing to split from the former commander in chief, as evidenced by some of her recent votes in the Senate. The Alaskan voted for Trump’s conviction last month on the House’s impeachment article of inciting an insurrection. The former president was ultimately acquitted. https://twitter.com/newsmax/status/1360763406677114886 https://twitter.com/AP/status/1360761311781662720 https://twitter.com/GriffJenkins/status/1360765053436313601 https://twitter.com/DailyMail/status/1360766719141302274 https://twitter.com/LAGOP/status/1360722297754177546?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1360722297754177546%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Frepublican-senators-vote-to-convict-trump-on-incitement-charge
