LANSING — Today, Attorney General Dana Nessel announced multiple felony charges against 16 Republicans who were involved with the Trump campaign’s fake elector scheme that sought to overturn the results of Michigan’s 2020 presidential election. These electors will be charged with eight felony counts. Those charged include former Michigan Republican Party Co-Chairwoman Meshawn Maddock and Shelby Township Clerk Stan Grot.
In response, Michigan Democratic Party Chair Lavora Barnes released the following statement:
“These Republicans attempted to undermine the very foundations of our democracy, and their actions are a stain on the proud history of our state and the rule of law.
We are so proud to have an attorney general that is using all measures at her disposal to carry out a transparent, detailed process to ensure that MAGA Republicans are held accountable for their unlawful, un-American, actions.
Michiganders demand results and Democrats are once again delivering. Today is more evidence that when elected, we use that power to serve the people and ensure that no one is above the law.”
