As I understand it, the MI election officials can just ignore this, as there is no process in place for backsies on the certification.

“I rescind my prior vote to certify Wayne County elections. I fully believe the Wayne County vote should not be certified,” Monica Palmer…

Rescind her vote?!? That sounds like voter fraud, to me.

Some things never change. Something must be wrong with the people that we let vote, right, ahole?

They need to be investigated … swiftly … extensively … like FBI level … election manipulation level …
This is garbage …

Are there any editors at TPM?
How about a sentence or two on what this means and whether there is any legal predicate that would allow a municipal board member to change their vote ex post facto…

If they had done the right thing in the first place, very few would have noticed and they could have gone about their measly pathetic lives with only a few MAGA death threats.

Now they have placed themselves in a position where they are damned both ways. Fuck 'em.

This is a done deal. What this accomplishes, however is a pretext for the Pubbies on the State Board to refuse to certify. GOP is a total shitshow.

So, let me see if I get this right: The results are okay and we vote to certify, but we want an audit. But if that is their position, than with or without audit the results are okay, aren’t they?
