Wayne County’s Republican board members allege they were pressured and misled into approving election results on Tuesday night.
“Just the News” obtained copies of both their affidavits.
Chairperson Monica Palmer wrote that the Vice-Chairman “gave me assurances that voting for the certification of the November election would result in a full, independent audit of Detroit’s unbalanced precincts. I relied on that assurance and voted to certify the election based on that assurance.”
“Later that evening, I was sent statements that Secretary Jocelyn Benson made saying that she did not view our audit resolution to be binding. As a result of these facts, I rescind my prior vote to certify Wayne County elections.”
