On Thursday, Republican senators in the Michigan legislature called on Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to conduct a “full audit” of the 2020 election.
The letter was signed by Tom Barrett and Lana Theis, two state senators, who urged Benson to delay certifying the final results of the election until a full audit was conducted.
“Every citizen deserves to have faith in the integrity of the election process and its outcome. It is our responsibility, as elected public servants, to assure the people of Michigan of the process’s integrity through complete transparency and the faithful investigation of any allegations of wrongdoing, fraud, or abuse,” the senators wrote. “Unfortunately, a number of serious allegations have been made which cannot and should not be ignored.”
The letter first focused on a 6,000 vote error in one county which favored Joe Biden in the state of Michigan.
