Donald Trump called Monica Palmer after Wayne County Board of Canvassers meeting

Source: Detroit Free Press

Monica Palmer, the Republican chairwoman of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers who initially voted on Tuesday against certifying the county's election results, then reversed her vote, said Thursday she received a phone call from President Donald Trump Tuesday evening after the meeting ended.

Palmer said she did not know how long the call lasted, saying there was a lot of stress and adrenaline that night.

"He was checking to make sure I was safe after seeing/hearing about the threats and doxxing," Palmer wrote in a text message, referring to a firestorm of information released about her on social media.

Palmer earlier told the Free Press her family had "received multiple threats." "The threats have been made against myself, my daughter and my husband," she said. "Reports have been filed with Grosse Pointe Woods police and the FBI."

3. Trump just wanted to make sure she was safe.

"I wouldn't want anything tragic to happen to you and your family, if you know what I mean."

It's nice that he cares.

That he called her and the very next day she said she was rescinding her vote. I assure that that was purely a coincidence.

Trump targets vote certification in late bid to block Biden

https://apnews.com/article/donald-trump-targets-vote-certification-29da6aac9cc41e47f3095855e7af7031

By ZEKE MILLER, CHRISTINA A. CASSIDY and COLLEEN LONG today


WASHINGTON (AP) —

.........................................

In Michigan, two Republican election officials in the state’s largest county initially refused to certify results despite no evidence of fraud, then backtracked and voted to certify and then on Wednesday flipped again and said they “remain opposed to certification.” Some Republicans have called on the GOP statewide canvassers to so the same. In Arizona, officials are balking at signing off on vote tallies in a rural county.
.......................

.................................

Still, what happened in Wayne County, Michigan, on Tuesday and Wednesday was a jarring reminder of the disruptions that can still be caused as the nation works through the process of affirming the outcome of the Nov. 3 election.

There is no precedent for the Trump team’s widespread effort to delay or undermine certification, according to University of Kentucky law professor Joshua Douglas.

“It would be the end of democracy as we know it,” Douglas said. “This is just not a thing that can happen.”

Certifying results is a routine yet important step after local election officials have tallied votes, reviewed procedures, checked to ensure votes were counted correctly and investigated discrepancies. Typically, this certification is done by a local board of elections and then, later, the results are certified at the state level.

.........................

Then all eyes turn to statewide certification.

In Wayne County, the two Republican canvassers at first balked at certifying the vote, winning praise from Trump, and then reversed course after widespread condemnation. A person familiar with the matter said Trump reached out to the canvassers, Monica Palmer and William Hartmann, on Tuesday evening after the revised vote to express gratitude for their support. Then, on Wednesday, Palmer and Hartmann signed affidavits saying they believe the county vote “should not be certified.” ....................................

28. Let me make sure I understand this

The Cowardly Lyin' Loser checks in on a local election official to make sure she's safe, but -- to the best of my knowledge -- he hasn't made a single phone call to any of the relatives of someone who died after becoming infected with COVID-19.
Is that right?
By now, there's a quarter of a million family survivors who never got a single "thought or prayer" from this mango-color turd. I'm guessing that includes anyone in Herman Cain's family.

This is way, WAY, WAY beyond despicable.

(ALQ-99 is the Navy's tactical jamming system. It's been said that an EA6B could jam electronics in all of NYC.)
