GOP Senate candidate John James asks Board of State Canvassers to delay certification

Source: Detroit Free Press

LANSING John James, the Republican candidate for a U.S. Senate in the Nov. 3 election, asked the Board of State Canvassers Friday to delay its certification of Michigan's statewide election results.

The four-member board, composed of two Republicans and two Democrats, is scheduled to meet Monday to certify the results, amid ongoing efforts by Republican Donald Trump to overturn results that show Democratic President-Elect Joe Biden defeating him in Michigan by about 154,000 votes.

Trump has made unsubstantiated allegations of election irregularities in Detroit and elsewhere. The alleged irregularities would not come close to overturning the result, even if proven true, and have been rejected by several state courts.

In a letter to the board, James asked for a two-week delay "to fully audit the election results."

1. F**K This!!! Especially Now That We Know The GOP Doesn't Know that MN is Not the Same as MI

How stupid do you have to be to think you've found massive fraud only to learn the cities you cite as having irregular totals in Michigan are actually in Minnesota.

3. Isn't that something . .

"The Elite strike force team" couldn't distinguish between MN and MI. That alone should disqualify this notion of "fraud and irregularitries" bullshit.

And the topper I must say is "Hugo Chavez".

2. The answer should be no

There is no evidence of fraud. Biden won, get over it.

22. Only reason I brought it up was that Peters ( besides the doomed

from the minute he won in 2018 Jones in AL) was the only Dem before election day who was in a remotely cose race race according to the polls. It ended up far closer than that.

I had Peters winning easily, as I assumed (incorrectly) the racist MAGAts would not vote for a black man in numbers sufficient enough to even make it close. James actually had a smaller losing margin than Rump, by 60,000 votes or so.

23. In my district, we had a similar situation.

Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-9) is a six-term incumbent and was challenged by a loud-mouthed BLEXIT AA Republican who taunted him with baseless rhetoric. While Pascrell won the Election, the Republican got about 30% of the vote, which is way too high for our district. And to boot, this guy is going around to post-election rallies and appearing on RW radio as he's contracted the attention-seeking bug. (He's 23, no college, and no experience in politics.)

24. Who is 23 years old?

Billy Prempeh is 31.

A 23 year old is not old enough to be sworn in.

Youngest possible candidate in 2020 for House could have born January 4, 1996 (as you legally turn your age the day before your birthday and you must be 25 on January 3rd, 2021)

5. Trump is his hero.

According to an interview he gave "I'm not a politician" was the answer he gave when asked why his website made no mention of a health care plan.

and cheaters. This is all projection, as they've been cheating at elections for a generation or more now.

10. I get it's not easy to be a two time loser. Now he's a two time loser, pathetic cry baby.

I hope he takes the hint, this time, and stays out of politics, although I'm willing to bet he will try to run against Governor Whitmer, in 2 years.

13. If they don't certify on Monday, Whitmer should just replace them with two who will.

Surely there are a couple of Lincoln Project Never Trumpers available in Michigan...

17. The Dead Horse Is DEAD

..quit beating it...The Michigan Secretary Of State has said, more than once, the certification will take place per the rules and protocol. The election process or results are not in question...nothing to audit. Biden won, Trump LOST.

For what it's worth, Trump's meeting with the two Michigan legislators was a win for Democracy...
