MI Court of Appeals denies election fraud case against Detroit

The Michigan Court of Appeals says certifying the state’s election results will go ahead. The court rejected an emergency motion from Republican challengers unhappy with Election Day vote counting.

Republican poll challengers asked the court to stop the certification of the votes in Wayne County. Because Wayne has the most voters, that would essentially slow or stop certifying the statewide results.

The appeals court issued a terse order rejecting the request. The order can be appealed to the Michigan Supreme Court.

So far, though, supporters of President Donald Trump and the Trump campaign itself have failed in all their legal challenges to the process or the results of Michigan’s November 3rd elections.
