Watch: Democrats Launch Personal Attacks Against Wayne County Republican Canvassers

Kyle Olson 18 Nov 2020

Democrats unhappy with the two Republican members on the Wayne County Board of Canvassers launched withering personal attacks during Tuesday night’s meeting after the pair initially declined to certify the November 3 election results.

The board had just deadlocked 2-2 before opening the meeting to public comment. Several of the attendees accused members William Hartmann and Monica Palmer of racism for questioning the disputed tabulation process that took place in Detroit.

Others invoked the canvassers’ children and descendants in a bevy of personal attacks on the two individuals.

Pastor Edward Pruett claimed Hartmann’s “racist ignorance was showing” because he allegedly picked speakers based on his ability to pronounce their names.

“Your children will be disgusted and I am sad that you have influence over them,” the reverend said.

Meanwhile, a woman named Trische Duckworth struck a similar tone, singling out Monica Palmer.

--- Quote ---In an extraordinary turnabout that foreshadows possible legal action, the two GOP members of Wayne County's election board signed affidavits Wednesday night alleging they were bullied and misled into approving election results in Michigan's largest metropolis and do not believe the votes should be certified until serious irregularities in Detroit votes are resolved.


Both GOP board members said their concerns included discrepancies in nearly three quarters of Detroit's precinct poll books where ballots are supposed to be matched to qualified voters.

"The Wayne County election had serious process flaws which deserve investigation. I continue to ask for information..."

--- Quote ---Palmer and Hartmann have each submitted affidavits. Palmer, the board’s chair, said in her affidavit that “more than 70% of Detroit’s 134 Absent Voter Counting Boards (AVCB) did not balance.” She then voted not to certify the results.

She added: “After the vote, public comment period began and dozens of people made personal remarks against me and Mr. Hartmann. The comments made accusations of racism and threatened me and my family.” She said that she was advised that she could not oppose the certification and that voting to certify “would result in a full, independent audit of Detroit’s unbalanced precincts.” She later learned that Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson did not view the agreement as binding on her. Consequently, Palmer said, she was rescinding her vote.

Hartmann said that he agreed to certify the results after being “berated” and after being told by Wayne County counsel that the discrepancies in the vote were insufficient reason not to certify the result. He added that he was promised that the state would audit the results, but later learned that Benson had no intention of doing so.

It is not clear whether the decision to rescind votes after the fact has any legal value; litigation is likely to follow.

Michigan mother describes ‘heartbreaking’ attacks after questioning irregularities in Detroit-area presidential vote

A Michigan mother who was one of two Republicans on a panel appointed to certify the Detroit-area election results said she faced “heartbreaking” attacks, including being called a racist, when she raised objections over potential irregularities.

She and the other Republican member of the board changed their votes against certifying election results Tuesday with little explanation after enduring nearly three hours of insults and intimidation, including mentions of their children.

In a statement late Wednesday, Wayne County canvassing board chairwoman Monica Palmer called it "heartbreaking" to sit and listen to people attack her.

"The Democrats went off the hinges trying to suggest we wanted to suppress the black vote, and that was not the case. Our concern was in Detroit, Livonia, and other communities that had unexplained imbalances," Palmer said. "There was not mob rule, but there was a lot of pressure to certify. It was not easy to sit there and listen to all of the threats on the Zoom call and on social media."
