Plaintiff: Republican Election Volunteers Were Harassed in MI

The Great Lakes Justice Center, a non-profit law firm, is accusing Michigan’s City of Detroit and Wayne County of committing voter fraud.

Their lawsuit compiles complaints and testimony evidence from two plaintiffs and six witnesses.

The firm’s senior legal counsel, David Kallman, told our sister-media The Epoch Times that the suit lays out fraud clearly: “The main concern is, obviously the clear fraud that occurred in the accounting process of the votes in Wayne County. And the way votes were manufactured by workers that were there. Mail-in ballots, 10s of thousands of them that were not properly secured. … They were arriving as much as 24 hours late.”

Edward McCall, a plaintiff in the suit, says he was an election challenger on and around Election Day. He could observe the ballot counting process from a short distance and challenge anything he thought was wrong while he volunteered at Detroit’s TCF Center.

But McCall says people from a group he couldn’t identify told him to leave whatever area he was at multiple times, interfering with his job: “Finally, a final person came up from my left and again challenged me one more time. I said, ‘Sir, I’m established here and I’m allowed to be here. If you can come to show me in writing that I can’t be here, I will gladly move. But until that point, I am going to be standing here. So this entire ordeal lasted for about 45 minutes. There was no possibility to really look at the ballots.”

McCall says this happened on Election Day and the next day and that it felt partisan because he didn’t see any Democratic challengers being treated that way.

A lawyer for the City of Detroit, in a statement, responded to the suit, saying: “It is based upon various conspiracy theories, which have already been debunked.” And that he’s confident that the lawsuit will be dismissed like others that have been filed.

McCall says he wants an investigation into the process, a responsibility that especially swing states need to fulfill because their elections are tight: “And, based on that, I have no trust whatsoever in election results out of the state of Michigan until Wayne County is fixed.”

The law firm, which McCall encourages people to donate to, is asking for a court order against Wayne County and Detroit to save their election-related documents, and to hold off on certifying, or formally recognizing, the election’s results for now.
