GOP calls for audit before certification in Michigan; law may not allow?

Just The NewsRepublican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel and Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox in a Saturday letter urged the Michigan Board of State Canvassers to order an audit into Wayne County's results prior to the election results being certified.

"This board faces a stark choice: it can either ignore numerical anomalies and credible reports of procedural irregularities, leaving the distrust and sense of procedural disenfranchisement felt by many Michigan voters to fester for years; or it can adjourn for fourteen days to allow for a full audit and investigation into those anomalies and irregularities before certifying the results of the 2020 General Election, allowing all Michiganders to have confidence in the results," they wrote in the letter.

According to Michigan Radio, Michigan Department of State spokesperson Jake Rollow in a statement said that an audit could only come after certification of results.

The problem with recounts is that they recount the same fraudulent ballots. To be meaningful, there has to be a way to throw out illegal ballots. It seems likely that will take lawsuits.
