The adamant opposition of Michigan’s Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her administration to probing the results of the 2020 election has now brought about a new powerful enemy of any potential voting violation cover-ups.
Seeking Trump’s endorsement
James Craig, a renowned former chief of the Detroit police who is now running for governor from the Republican Party and hoping to receive President Donald Trump’s endorsement, has issued a call for an all-out forensic audit of the 2020 vote.
64-year-old Craig retired in May 2021 as Detroit Police Chief, having served at the post since 2013, with a Detroit Police career spanning 44 years.
He is known as a powerful advocate of the 2nd Amendment and has recommended that Detroit’s residents buy guns and train to use them in self-defense.
Craig has been on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show and ripped the Biden administration for its total lack of support for the police and for seeking to impose gun control.
In 2020, Craig’s decisive leadership managed to prevent BLM race riots in Detroit while the far-leftist thug group was burning other major American cities.
A lot of his supporters were stunned to learn that he is running for governor to challenge the Democrat incumbent Gretchen Whitmer – because they are overwhelmingly Democrats.
At the end of September, Craig met with President Donald Trump in Florida and is hoping to receive his endorsement.
Trump has already backed GOP conservative Kristina Karamo for Secretary of State, and attorney Matt DePerno for Attorney General – both of whom have been fighting to investigate the 2020 election results in Michigan.
Craig James has now published an op-ed in the Detroit News with a call for a complete forensic audit of the 2020 vote.
In it, he categorically declares his support for an election audit because that would help to “restore faith” in the US election systems, and identify potential weaknesses.
Craig explains that he is particularly concerned by the fact that certain Democrats in the state, including in particular Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, have “immediately dismiss[ed] honest efforts” in order to make elections more secure – as well as what Craig says is “the clear evidence that voter fraud exists.”
The former head of Detroit’s police cites his experience with conducting a precinct audit which proved particularly helpful in improving the entire department and the community.
Craig lambasts Whitmer as well as the entire “Democrat Party elite” for their strong opposition to having an audit “verify the election results”.
He cites a 2019 case in which a Southfield City Clerk, Sherikia Hawkins, was claimed to have changed more than 190 absentee voter records from the 2018 election.
Another case Craig cites is that of a woman from Oak Park, Michigan, who is accused of voter fraud by trying to get 26 absentee ballots for incapacitated residents, as well as a 2005 FBI investigation into votes cast in Detroit by names of dead people.
Craig concludes that his statement should get the attention of President Donald Trump as most Republicans as well as many Independents and even Democrats in Michigan think the election was stolen from him in 2020.
