LANSING, Mich., November 23, 2020 – Democrats have spent the better part of the month criticizing Republicans for exposing the unacceptably high level of election irregularities in Detroit, despite the fact that earlier this year, they too voiced the same concerns.
According to the Detroit News, back in August “All four members of the State Board of Canvassers… blasted problems with counting ballots in Detroit's primary election as ‘alarming’ and ‘concerning’,". The article went on to highlight comments from Democrat canvassers stating, “Board Chairwoman Jeannette Bradshaw, a Democrat, added the situation was ‘very alarming’ and ‘disheartening’”, and quoted Julie Matuzak, a Democratic board member, as saying “I find this whole thing appalling”.
“While Republicans have fought expose the truth of what has happened in Detroit during the election and the days that followed, the Democrats have cowered away from their duty to stand up for the integrity of our elections.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “The Michigan Republican Party will continue to stand strong in our fight to uncover the truth and restore dignity and trust in our elections here in Michigan.”
