MI tries to bury the election data

It’s almost certainly a futile attempt to bolt the stable door after the horses get out, but the Michigan Secretary of State’s order to delete the election data amounts to a confession of fraud:

It what can only be seen as an effort to keep the facts from coming to light in the face of problematic issues with Michigan’s 2020 General Election process, a memo has been issued from Michigan’s Secretary of State to destroy data.
The Michigan State Republican Party Friday sounded an alarm about an ethically questionable memo authorized by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson that “is pushing for the mass deletion of election data.”
Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox in a statement Friday, said that Benson’s office issued orders to clerks in Michigan counties to “delete Electronic Poll Book software and associated files” even as calls to audit the election persist.
Cox was referring to a December 1, 2020, memo from the Michigan Bureau of Elections, an agency overseen by Benson’s office, that read, “[Electronic Poll Book] software and associated files must be deleted from all devices by the seventh calendar day following the final canvass and certification of the election (November 30, 2020) unless a petition for recount has been filed and the recount has not been completed, a post-election audit is planned but has not yet been completed, or the deletion of the data has been stayed by an order of the court or the Secretary of State.”
The order targeted data contained in Electronic Poll Book software and in files contained on laptops and USB drives using during the election.

In my opinion, the President should make it very clear to all state legislators of both parties that they will be held personally responsible for their dereliction of duty in the face of the evidence of obvious election fraud that has been presented to them. They all know about the fraud now, but some people only respond to rhetoric, and the rhetoric to which cowards are most responsive is the fear of consequences.

He should also make it very clear to them that he is going to cross the Rubicon if they fail to do their duty to the U.S. Constitution, and that they will no more be able to hide behind their state oaths of office or their state constitutions than Axis officers were permitted to hide behind their orders at Nuremberg.

Too late:

A security group that’s questioned Michigan’s presidential results and is listed in at least one of the lawsuits challenging Michigan’s election results is reviewing tabulators and other election materials in Antrim County. 

Allied Securities Operation Group and Village of Central Lake resident William Bailey will take forensic images of the county’s 22 tabulators and review other election related material Sunday following a Friday court order allowing for the review. 

Antrim County Administrator Pete Garwood and county Clerk Sheryl Guy will be in attendance, according to a statement from the county. 

“The imaging is expected to take hours, no timeline has been given for the forensic team’s investigation and results,” the statement said.
