Michigan’s notorious Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson sent a letter last week to the boards of Cheboygan and Antrim counties informing them they had “no authority” to order audits of the 2020 election.
She further instructed the local election clerks against giving any access to unaccredited third parties who might conduct such audits.
Meanwhile, in a letter to Karen Brewster, Cheboygan County Clerk, the director of the Michigan Bureau of Elections, Jonathan Brater, blames “ongoing misinformation” on misleading local authorities to grant access to what he describes as “unqualified third parties” wishing to perform a “forensic audit”.
Brater argues further that the “misinformation” in question has been categorically debunked.
In a third letter to all counties in the state of Michigan, Dominion Voting Systems, which has provided the voting machines for the 2020 election, gave a warning stating that any transfers of voting machines to “unaccredited auditors” would result in invalidating licensing agreements and turning the equipment into being “unqualified” for further official use.
Benson is no hero!
Jocelyn Benson, the Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, has uttered numerous lies since the election in November but the state’s media dominated by the far left keep ignoring them, and keep presenting her as an honest and courageous public leader.
That cannot, of course, be further from the truth.
Benson was exposed back on March 16, 2021, as she tried to influence the election outcome: a Michigan judge ruled that she instructed city clerks to disregard signature matching law with respect to absentee ballots in the 2020 election.
Michigan’s infamous Attorney General, Democrat Dana Nessel, has added Benson as a defendant in the voter fraud case in Antrim County.
One would expect that Michigan’s Secretary of State would seek to help with a full-fledged audit in Antrim County, thus easing people’s fears the 2020 election might have been rigged.
What happened instead was that Benson’s lawyer fought extremely hard to convince the judge to dismiss the suit filed by courageous local resident Bill Bailey.
Bailey’s lawyer, Matt DePerno, has since spoken out about Benson’s adamant pushback with respect to the discovery on what was wrong with the November election voting machines.
Back in December 2020, Benson as Secretary of State declined to testify on the election in a hearing of the House Oversight Committee, justifying that the hearing could boost what she described as “the lies” about the vote among the Michigan voters .
Benson is trying to do everything in her power to prevent the audit
Going back even further, a week after the November vote, Benson spoke on Detroit’s WJR radio, lying that GOP poll challengers – the same ones who had been locked out of the process – had broken windows and the “Detroit Police” thus had to put “paper” on them.
Back then, a total of 134 tables were prepared for the counting of ballots.
However, only about 40 poll workers could watch the processing of the ballots, while over 100 Republican poll challengers were locked out, and had no way of taking part in the counting process for absentee votes.
Benson, however, has accused the GOP challengers of being “destructive”, of interfering with the vote-counting, and of attempting to stop voters from casting ballots, just because the former had been locked out.
Alongside Michigan’s Secretary of State, voting machine supplier Dominion is obviously also pushing back against the carrying out of forensic audits of the vote in the state in November 2020.
