There is at least one faction of the Michigan GOP that has put all of the Republican RINOs on notice, telling them that they had better watch their behavior. That’s right. Apparently, the GOP in Macomb County, which is one of the largest counties in Michigan, has now issued a censure to three Republican lawmakers.
Apparently, all three of these GOP lawmakers served on a senate panel that became well-known for claiming that there was no widespread fraud in the Michigan presidential elections. That’s right. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
In this case, the three censured lawmakers were State Senators Lana Theis, John Bizon, and Ed McBroom.
From Detroit News:
In one of the largest counties in Michigan, the Republican party has now voted Thursday to censure three GOP lawmakers who served on the senate panel that insisted that they couldn’t find any evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential primary in Michigan.
The Macomb County GOP voted unanimously in favor of the resolution, as noted by Mark Forton, the party’s chairman. Vice Chairwoman Lisa Mankiewicz and former GOP state senate candidate Terence Mekoski also witnessed the historic vote.
Interestingly enough, another individual who was also at the meeting was Matthew Deperno, who is a Kalamazoo attorney who has been dedicated to leading the effort to question these election results. These RINOs from the Michigan Senate GOP had the gall to accuse Deperno of spreading “demonstrably false” information.
Attorney General Dana Nessel investigated those who were pushing false claims in order “to raise money or publicity for their own ends.”
This resolution has mostly targeted language that was included in the report that had told the Democrat Attorney General to investigate those who questioned the integrity of the 2020 election.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The resolution’s language focused on the committee’s recommendation that Democratic attorney general of Michigan Dana Nessel investigates individuals who pushed election fraud claims in order “to raise money for the publicity of their own ends,” the Detroit News wrote.
“If you are profiting by making false claims, that’s pretty much the definition of fraud,” McBroom said in July.
On June 24th, Trump released a statement calling the senate investigation into the 2020 election in Michigan a “cover-up.” I realize Trump can be a bit obnoxious, but he just might be right folks.
