(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – In Wayne County, Michigan the two Republican members of the Board of Canvassers who were blatantly manipulated and lied to by Democrats in exchange for their vote to certify the election results have now decided to rescind their affirmative votes and stand in opposition of the certification.
When Monica Palmer (pictured above), the chairperson of the board, and William Hartmann, a board member, agreed to vote for the certification, they did so under the impression that a complete audit was going to be done in the county.
They were under this impression because the Democrats on the board told them that is what was going to happen. It turns out that the Democrats lied. Is anybody else surprised? We aren’t either.
Once Palmer and Hartmann discovered that there was no audit planned the two decided they needed to rescind their “yes” votes and so they did.
In a written affidavit, Palmer said that the first sign something was not right with the election “was that the board members were not given an executive summary of the final canvass of the county’s election results,” reports the Western Journal.
Palmer explained she learned that over 70 percent of Detroit’s 134 absent voter counting boards showed mismatched numbers for votes tabulated with the number of voters signed in at the precinct. When there was no explanation for the discrepancies she and Hartmann decided to vote not to certify the results.
That’s when things got ugly. Democrats unleashed all fury and hell-fire on the two with personal attacks, accusations of “racism,” and threats against members of their families.
Hartmann confirmed the vitriol in his affidavit and Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, whose district overlaps parts of Wayne County, added to it on Twitter Tuesday night.
This is how the left attempts to “unite:”
It’s plain and simple, folks. The Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers put politics above their duty to our residents. Suggesting that all of Wayne County can be certified, EXCEPT for Detroit, is horrifying racist and a subversion of our democracy.

Palmer further explained in her affidavit that she was led to believe she didn’t have a choice but to certify after being told by Wayne County Corporate Counsel Janet Anderson-Davis that she “had to certify the vote that night” and that she couldn’t use her “discretion on matters like the record being incomplete.”
Anderson-Davis also assured Palmer and Hartmann that a full audit would be performed which both of them assert was the only reason they agreed to certify the results.
So, first Democrats lied to the Republican members of the board in an attempt to manipulate them into doing what they wanted. Which, by the way, in the words of Rashida Tlaib, is an actual “subversion of our democracy.”
When the Republicans did what was right instead of what the Democrats demanded, the Democrats unleashed a fury of personal attacks, accusations, and threats. They showed how they plan to bully us all to “unity.”
What is most troubling now is that despite their sworn affidavits in which they both rescinded their votes to certify the results, the Michigan Secretary of State’s office is saying there is “no legal mechanism” for them to do that.
“Their job is done, and the next step in the process is for the Board of State Canvassers to meet and certify,” said a spokesperson for the Secretary of State’s office.
Palmer says that the Wayne County election “had serious process flaws” that should be investigated. She says she is continuing to seek information so that Wayne County voters can be assured that the election was “conducted fairly and accurately.”
Sounds like an uphill battle is underway in Wayne County and the Dems are playing dirty as usual.
