Michigan Election Official Confirms That Six-Feet Distancing Rules Will Be Enforced for Poll Challengers on Election Day

This is highly disconcerting.

In the aftermath of the #DetroitLeaks scandal, there are serious questions about electoral integrity in the state of Michigan. Big League Politics has reached out to representatives in the Trump campaign and officials with the Secretary of State to clarify what is being done with regards to poll challengers.

We released the audio from poll worker trainings in Detroit, in which the instructor and the prospective workers were cackling about how poll challengers would be disenfranchised due to social distancing mandates. The instructor advised for poll workers to call the police on poll challengers who refuse to adhere to these policies that are not based on any law passed by the state legislature.

We reached out to the Trump Victory team in Michigan to see what is being done with regards to protecting the rights of poll challengers to guard the vote. One representative from Trump Victory explained that the Secretary of State would be giving a directive to local clerks informing them that the six-feet distancing rule is not binding and will not be enforced.

However, Big League Politics reached out to the elections division of the Secretary of State and heard a contradictory perspective. We made contact with the Bureau of Elections Outreach Coordinator, Kristi Dougan, and had a brief discussion about the policy. Dougan confirmed that the six-feet distancing policy will be implemented on election day but danced around exactly how the policy will be enforced.

Dougan disputed the notion that poll challengers will be disenfranchised as a result of the six-feet distancing policy, and she believes that election officials will figure out ways on the fly to keep an orderly process.

“There are some creative ways to accommodate everyone involved,” she said.

However, grassroots conservative leaders in the state of Michigan are not content on letting the official Trump campaign and state electoral officials take care of this problem. State representative candidate Stephen Carra and election fraud whistleblower Bob Cushman have filed a lawsuit against Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson demanding an injunction, as Big League Politics reported:

State representative candidate Stephen Carra and whistleblower Bob Cushman, who observed electoral fraud first hand in August, are filing a lawsuit against Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson over findings revealed in the #DetroitLeaks.

Carra and Cushman are filing a lawsuit against Benson as well as Jonathan Brater, who is Director of the Michigan Bureau of Elections. They claim that their rights as a political candidate and an election challenger are being violated due to Benson’s directives.

The complaint filed in the Court of Appeals on Friday alleges that Carra’s “special and substantial interest” in election integrity stems from his race for state representative in Michigan’s 59th district. Carra is running as a Republican to serve in the state legislature. The complaint also alleges that Cushman has a “special and substantial interest in the subject matter” due to his history as an electoral challenger, which will continue during next month’s election.

The lawsuit claims that Benson and Brater are breaking election law by enforcing social distance guidelines to disenfranchise poll challengers.

“Directly contrary to that duty, BENSON and/or BRATER have directed that local election officials can strictly require and enforce “social distancing” and face masking requirements upon election challengers as a condition of entry and performance of their duties,” the complaint alleges.

The lawsuit notes that there is no law on the books mandating these social distance requirements. They are based off of a Michigan Department of Health and Human Services directive that was issued in direct contradiction to an order from the Michigan supreme court.

“In summary, BENSON and/or BRATER have directed local election officials to condition the presence of election challengers upon wearing a face mask. Even while wearing a mask, an election challenger may not get closer than six feet to any election worker,” the complaint alleges.

Big League Politics will continue to report on this lawsuit and the fall-out from the #DetroitLeaks scandal.

DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County

Published

on

Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.

Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:

“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”

“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”

Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
