Last week, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced charges against 16 Trump voters who cast their ballots as a substitute amid a belief that there would be an honest inquiry into the 2020 election.
The charges included forgery, election fraud and conspiracy.
Gateway Pundit published a video in which voters publicly referred to their vote as a “reserve list” and stressed, “it is not a substitute.” Their action was to give Michigan legislators a “vote for life” on the presumption that there would be a candid investigation/audit of the Michigan election, particularly in Wayne County, where Canvas initially refused to certify the vote due to an imbalance of 70% of the 134 absentee tally boards in Detroit.
Michigan House Election Deputy Chair, Rep. Rachelle Smit, has issued a statement stating that what voters did was “fully legal, fully valid, and anticipates that there will be an honest investigation into Michigan voter fraud.”
“Trump voters retain the ability to investigate voter fraud occurring after December 15, 2020. Trump voters committed no fraud, no fraud, and no violation of Michigan election laws. Dana Nessel knows this, but she press charges against these people anyway. Our Michigan AG is an absolute disgrace to the rule of law. This is a political charge by an attorney general who shamelessly abuses the law for the basest of political motives. Dana Nessel, as attorney general, is a threat to the rule of law and our system of government.”
It came with the condition that Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson conduct an audit of unexplained areas in Wayne County where the numbers don’t match.
After initially splitting the votes to verify the election results from Wayne County, the canvas council finally revised their vote and voted unanimously to certify the will of the people.
There is no honest investigation into the imbalances of the Wayne County canvas council that we can find. However, there was a statewide “risk limitation audit” of 18,000 ballots out of 5.45 million (00.3%), using “audited software for randomly selecting ballots to be drawn from one of Michigan’s 1,520 local electoral jurisdictions and manually reviewed.” Searching for 3 or 4% of potentially fraudulent ballots in a universe of 5.45 million (~218,000) by looking at only 00.3% of the universe is in line with the “finding a needle in a haystack” adage. If you have 1,000 ballots, you will only see a total of 3 ballots. If 4% of the ballots are fraudulent, those 3 ballots should find 40 in a universe of 1,000.
Michigan Bureau of Elections Director Jonathan Brater explains:
“What we’re going to do today is roll 20 dice, a 10-sided die, to generate a random number that we’ll then feed into a computer algorithm that will tell us which ballots from across the state we’re going to randomly draw. And then we will compare about 18,000 ballots that we randomly draw to the total machine tabulation, to ensure within a certain level of statistical certainty that the election results are correct.”
Further, these “risk-limiting audits” have done nothing to provide answers regarding missing track-of-custody documents, mail-in ballots 3.5 hours after voting closed with one driver with Indiana plates (no party watchers), late-night ballots dropped at 4 a.m. escorted twice by cars with Pennsylvania plates, and again, in 2022, a similar late-night decline (in 2022, Michigan Democrats took control of the state legislature).
The armed Michigan AG office pressed costs for action that had precedent in the United States: in 1960, Hawaii sent an “alternative electorate row” after the election contested between John F Kennedy and Richard Nixon. Three of Kennedy’s electors signed their own certificates and sent them to Washington. Eventually, after a recount and investigation, the Hawaiian “alternative” electors were seated and Hawaii was awarded to Kennedy.
By December 1960, it was clear that Kennedy had won. Only Hawaii’s results remain in doubt. Nixon won by just 140 votes, according to preliminary results, which were passed by the governor. A recount was underway on December 19, 1960, when presidential electors across the nation were required by law to meet and cast their ballots.
Hawaii Nixon voters met and cast their three votes in a formal ceremony. But nearby, three of Kennedy’s potential electors got together and signed their own certificates, ushering them to Washington as if Kennedy had won the state.
Back in November 2020, Democratic Representative-elect Abraham Aiyash threatened canvas councilor Monica Palmer by doxxing her and her children’s school at a public Zoom meeting. Remember: Wayne County’s 70% absentee board is unequal. Jocelyn Benson’s SOS office promises an audit if they agree to certification.

AG Nessel, in his prosecution papers, made it appear as though voters were striking a shady backroom deal and surreptitiously trying to replace Biden’s voter certificates with Trump’s certificates. That’s not the case. In fact, they are very open to submitting their certificates:
Regarding the indictment of 16 GOP voters, the Attorney General’s statement sounds like a secret plan in the middle of the night. This is the same “conspirator” who appeared in the Michigan Senate the next morning, in broad daylight, with an attorney and news cameras behind him. pic.twitter.com/ZGX7lVIZ6Q
