Former Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson told The Kyle Olson Show this week that an “independent audit” is needed of the ballots cast during the presidential election last week.
Johnson (R-Holly), who now chairs the Senate Elections Committee, wants her committee and another to be able to subpoena records related to how the count was conducted, particularly in Detroit, where dozens of observers have produced affidavits detailing a botched process.
Johnson filed an affidavit urging an “independent audit” of the vote.
“Recounting’s not going to help us because the allegations we’ve received that are credible” have examples “of things that aren’t going to be found in a recount,” she said, including coaching voters, making it difficult for observers to watch the process, and counting ballots multiple times.
“These are all against the law and these are integrity processes and need to be adhered to,” Johnson said.
