Michigan Republicans: No evidence of widespread election fraud
The GOP-led state Senate Oversight Committee said in a 55-page report on Thursday that the 2020 election’s outcome represents the “true results.” Joe Biden defeated then-President Donald Trump by about 155,000 votes, or just under 3 percentage points, in Michigan. While Trump has continued to claim the election was stolen, the panel said it found no evidence of widespread or systematic fraud in Michigan that would have changed the results.
Does that mean there wasn’t any fraud at all? The committee’s three Republicans did recommend legislation to fix what it called “real vulnerabilities” in future elections. Election-related bills are pending in the GOP-controlled state legislature. The new measures would include stricter photo ID rules, which the Senate passed last week and the House amended and approved Wednesday. Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said she would veto the bills if they reached her desk.
