Joe Biden won, Michigan elector coup 'not going to happen,' GOP leader says

Source: Bridge MI

LANSING — Democrat Joe Biden is the president-elect, and while Michigan’s Republican-led Legislature is investigating the election, it will not award the state’s 16 electors to GOP President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey told Bridge on Tuesday.

Hundreds of activists who protested at the Michigan Capitol on Saturday repeated the president’s unproven claims of widespread voter fraud, urging lawmakers to “stop the steal” by choosing their own pro-Trump representatives to the Electoral College.

Conservative groups have also started phone and letter-writing campaigns in an attempt to persuade legislative Republicans to decide the election for Trump.

“That’s not going to happen,” Shirkey, R-Clarklake, said in a wide-ranging interview with Bridge Michigan. He noted state law awards electors to the winner of the state’s popular vote. And Biden won the state by more than 146,000 votes, according to unofficial results.

5. Typical of personality cults.

The relationship of Trumpkins to traditional Republican values is pretty thin. What the cultists like about their "man", are many of the same reasons he is wholly unfit to hold office.

6. One would hope these kinds of statements would squash the tinfoil hat conspiracies

Of it happening in FOUR states. Several GOP and state officials in those states have already said it ain't happening. Yet Maher, other pundits, and some on here keep pushing this nonsense.

7. This should not even be a headline. The fact that it is shows how far we have fallen.
