Michigan Election Integrity Volunteers ‘Afraid’ Amid Alleged Prosecution Threat

Michigan's Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel has allegedly threatened to arrest and prosecute activists promoting election integrity whose efforts also include attempt to stamp out voter fraud.

  • Many of the activists have as a result steered clear of a monitoring efforts, saying they fear being targeted by the government, say an attorney in the state deeply involved in the situation.
  • Across Michigan last week, dozens of counties and hundreds of precincts began a recount for two controversial ballot proposals that were approved by voters on Nov. 8.
  • The first measure in question establishes early voting, expands access to absentee voting and preempts Republican efforts to enact more stringent voter ID rules.
  • The other measure enshrines abortion rights in the state’s constitution.
