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.
During the budget battle she admonished the legislature for not jumping on board with her 45 cent a gallon tax increase. None of her party’s house or senate members even tried to make it happen. She was all on her own.
But Gretchen wouldn’t allow the state to move forward without a budget, so she signed what was given her. She signed it, using the veto pen in a way she may have thought would bring the legislature back to her. Yet in actuality, she revealed her own apathy for certain segments of government largess.
And at the same time she did another curious thing. She sent a message to our state workforce, suggesting that if anyone so much as speaks to our legislators, they might regret it. By lining out protections for those employees within, who also want good government. From West Michigan Politics:
State employees are no longer protected if they expose questionable activities to state legislators.
Here is what Whitmer removed:
“”The department shall not take disciplinary action against an employee for communicating with a member of the legislature or his or her staff.”
A Whitmer administration source says that language is somehow “unenforceable,” which simply doesn’t add up.
