Lawsuit claims election fraud in Michigan's Wayne County
By Scott McClallen | The Center Square 11/9/2020
The Great Lakes Justice Center (GLJC) has filed a lawsuit alleging fraud in Wayne County's vote counting process.
Filed on behalf of several poll challengers, the lawsuit alleges that Wayne County election officials allowed illegal and fraudulent processing of votes cast in Tuesdayâ€™s election.
Seven witnesses filed affidavits attesting to allegedly fraudulent activities.
The complaint claims:
â€¢ Ballots were counted even though the voterâ€™s name did not appear in the official voter rolls.
â€¢ Election workers were ordered to not verify votersâ€™ signatures on absentee ballots, backdate absentee ballots, and process such ballots regardless of their validity.
â€¢ Election workers processed ballots that appeared after the election deadline and falsely reported that those ballots had been received prior to Nov. 3, 2020 deadline.
â€¢ Defendants used false information to process ballots, such as using incorrect or false birthdays.
â€¢ Defendants coached voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democratic Party. Election workers would go to the voting booths with voters to watch them vote and coach them for whom to vote.
â€¢ Unsecured ballots arrived at the TCF Center loading garage, not in sealed ballot boxes, without any chain of custody, and without envelopes.
â€¢ Defendants refused to record challenges to their processes and removed challengers from the site if they politely voiced a challenge.
