Federal Judge Shuts Down Michigan GOP Efforts To Decertify Election Results
A federal judge has decided to throw out a efforts led by the Michigan Republican Party to decertify the state’s election results, stating the matter was “far from likely to succeed.”
The lawsuit was filed the day before Thanksgiving against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and other leaders and state officials. It alleged widespread malfeasance from election officials and voter fraud.
The complaint asked the court to order Whitmer to “transmit certified election results” declaring President Trump the winner. The certified votes for Michigan currently show that Joe Biden won the state by more than 150,000 votes.
In her 36-page decision, Judge Linda Parker wrote that granting the request would disenfranchise over 5 million Michigan voters who “with dignity, hope, and a promise of a voice, participated in the 2020 General Election.”
“Plaintiffs ask this Court to ignore the orderly statutory scheme established to challenge elections and to ignore the will of millions of voters. This, the Court cannot, and will not, do,” Parker wrote. “The People have spoken.”
President Trump has not yet conceded the election and continues to fight against incidents of voter fraud in an attempt to help preserve the election system that supports our entire government and the liberties we hold so dear.
This is proving to be an uphill battle for the president and for Americans concerned the election is being stolen by the Democratic Party. However, no battle for the preservation of liberty has ever been easy.
It’s time to press forward and keep up the good fight.
