Michigan Election Canvassers Rescind Votes to Certify

There are limits to how far people will let Democrats push them. Monica Palmer and William C. Hartmann, the two Republican members of Michigan’s Wayne County Board of Canvassers who were bullied into certifying the dubious election, have signed an affidavit rescinding their votes to certify:

Hartmann said in the affidavit that he observed about 71% of Detroit’s 134 Absent Voter Counting Boards “were left unbalanced and many unexplained.” …

The pair said state officials indicated they would not honor an earlier compromise to audit the ballots, which contributed to their decision to rescind. It was unclear if their decision to rescind could change their earlier vote to certify.

Making an agreement with state officials with Gretchen Whitmer in charge was a mistake. Let’s hope they rectified it in time.

The racially premised denunciations and threats against Palmer and Hartmann extended to family members. William M. Davis, a Detroit police commissioner, even threatened the canvassers with “ethics charges,” because he was not about “to sit around and let white people take advantage of black people” by letting them challenge election fraud in Detroit.

Kudos to Palmer and Hartmann for having the courage to rescind their vote when it became clear state officials would not honor their promise to audit the election. Regardless of the overall outcome, pushback matters. Without it, Democrats will cheat even more arrogantly next time around.
