‘Pattern of Lawlessness’: Legal Inquiry Into Michigan’s Mass Mail-In Ballot Request Scheme Launched

Start

The Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society filed litigation in Michigan to “secure all evidence of irregularities in the 2020 election and declare the election results invalid.”

The petition, inquiring with the Michigan Supreme Court to turnover election-related documents was announced November 27th.

“In numerous instances, state and local officials brazenly violated election laws in order to advance a partisan political agenda,” noted Phill Kline, Director of The Amistad Project.

The litigation centers on the state’s conduct with mail-in ballots.

According to the group’s press release:

Specifically, the suit notes that Benson circumvented the explicit intent of the Michigan Legislature, which established an absentee ballot process designed to minimize the risk of fraud. Benson violated numerous provisions of this process by sending unsolicited absentee ballot applications to every household in the state without verifying whether the intended recipients were still residing at the same location, whether they were eligible to vote in 2020, or even whether they were still alive.

Benson compounded the affront by establishing a process for online absentee ballot applications, again without statutory authority. This precludes the possibility of obtaining an actual signature from the voter, as required by law. The secretary of state’s unlawful actions flooded the state with absentee ballots, which are inherently less secure than in-person voting.

Michigan is set to have a public hearing on the election on December 1st.
