Conservative Activists Wonder Why Republican Leaders are Unwilling to Act
LANSING, MI (Nov. 27) — Republican state leaders have refrained from scheduling a hearing that addresses the hundreds of sworn affidavits attesting to grotesque fraud under penalty of perjury.
The hearings in Pennsylvania on Wednesday unveiled shocking stories of impropriety, delivered by countless credible sources, that have started to influence public opinion. Still, Michigan lawmakers refuse to schedule hearings despite significant constituent pressure demanding them.
Former state senator Patrick Colbeck of Canton does not believe the attitude from his former colleagues is acceptable. He was on the floor of the absentee voter ballot counting board on election night in Detroit and believes the sworn testimony of these whistleblowers must be heard.
“Media says they see no evidence of fraud. Legislative leadership says, “We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan.” Hundreds of poll challengers who witnessed fraud such as myself beg to differ. We believe that the truth about election needs to finally be heard without a media censorship filter,” Colbeck said.
I’ve spent so long despising this man, it nvr occurred to me to feel sorry for him. One of the luckiest men the world has ever known. While so many are suffering, he has everything, and yet can’t think of a single thing to be thankful for today. Must be an agonizing existence. https://t.co/U0sGIkGJXq
There were many local election results of interest in Michigan. Rs picked up some seats in areas where President Trump did well, but there were also missed opportunities due to local GOPs not contesting seats.
Allegan: Rs won all six countywide offices and won 7/7 county commission seats, all uncontested.
Bay: What a failure by the Bay County GOP. Rs won all state elections in Bay County, but the Bay GOP did not contest six of eight countywide offices. Popular D county executive (and former congressman) Jim Barcia was reelected. R Michael Rivard did defeat incumbent D drain commissioner (and former state rep) Joe Rivet. Rs contested only two of seven county commission seats, and won one of them.
Berrien: Rs won all seven countywide races. Rs won 10/12 county commission seats. The district 5 (St. Joseph) seat resulted in a tie, which was won by the R drawing lots.
Calhoun: Rs won all five countywide offices and 5/7 county commission seats.
Eaton: Rs won 3 of 5 countywide offices, prosecutor, clerk, and drain commissioner. Former state senator Rick Jones lost for sheriff by 2.6%, and an R lost for treasurer by 4.5%. Rs won 9/15 county commission elections, picking up three seats. An R won district 10 by 7 votes.
Genesee: Ds won all six countywide offices. Rs won 2/9 county commission seats, holding district 6 (Fenton) and picking up district 7 (North), but losing district 9 (East) by 2%. Rs also came within 5% in district 5 (Grand Blanc) and 2% in district 8 (West). Thus Rs were close to winning a majority on the Genesee County Commission.
