Resolution of the Executive Committee and Officers of the Fourteenth Congressional District Republican Party passed On 25 November 2020
1. It is resolved that the Executive Committee and Officers of the Fourteenth Congressional
District Republican Party of the State of Michigan respectfully request that the Legislature of the
State of Michigan immediately exercise its powers as described in this document. We request
these actions in light of the State Board of Canvassers’ decision to certify the vote in the 2020
general election and their assertion that an audit could only follow certification.
2. Given the Board’s handoff to the Legislature, we now turn to you to initiate a comprehensive,
transparent, full-systems forensic audit as well as an audit for compliance with law, all
processes, techniques, and procedures, that were in effect during the 2020 election. We
request that you conduct these audits prior to your appointment of electors. In addition we
request a hand recount of all votes cast, and the conduct of hearings.
3. Our State Constitution grants to all Michigan voters the right to such an audit and is the most
effective vehicle to validate the vote. Given the hundreds of sworn affidavits from election
workers, poll workers, and challengers - Democrat and Republican - averring significant error,
mismanagement, abuse, and fraud, it is imperative that the audit be sweeping in scope and
cover the period leading up to, during, and after the 2020 election. Testimony before the State
Board of Canvassers by distinguished former Michigan Senator Patrick Colbeck and others who
witnessed the voting and tabulation process described in detail manifest levels of election fraud
committed during the election of 2020 sufficient to alter the outcome and invalidate the results
of the election.
4. We further request that you conduct a full and complete hand recount of the votes cast with
special emphasis on all original source document absentee ballots that were diverted to the
adjudication process at all absentee counting boards. We also request a thorough examination
and recount of all original source document absentee military ballots received at all counting
5. Concurrent with the audit and recount, we call upon our legislature to accelerate and expand
hearings to vigorously investigate allegations concerning error-ridden voter rolls, voter outreach
and ballot application distribution, voter process and tabulation error irregularity, abuse and
fraud. The legislature must now vest Senator Ruth Johnson, chair of the Elections Committee,
with subpoena power to summon and question witnesses. As a former Secretary of State and
Oakland County clerk there is no one better positioned, nor more qualified than Sen. Johnson to
lead this probe.
6. The legislative hearings must be robust and extend to witnesses who signed affidavits (they
are entitled to their 'day in court') and to parties involved in allegations of election impropriety,
whether they be local or out-of-state, and further, to ascertain whether the oversight and
administration of the election and tabulation processes were conducted in a manner fully
consistent with free, fair, and accurate elections. Michigan voters and taxpayers have a right to
know about all pertinent financial transactions between the State and vendors/suppliers of
election computer systems, software, ballots, and related assets. State legislators should
aggressively reach out to researchers, statisticians, election systems authorities, and any others
with special expertise to analyze voting patterns and practices in our state.
7. We also request that in the event that the forensic or compliance audits are found to form a
basis to determine that the levels of election fraud were so pervasive so as to alter the outcome
and invalidate the results of the election or a recount reveals a result in favor of President
Donald J Trump - then we request that the Legislature exercise its powers conferred by Article II
of the United States Constitution to appoint a full slate of electors who are fully supportive of
the re-election of President Donald J. Trump for President of the United States of America.
8. The authority to directly appoint electors is granted to the Legislature by Article II Section I
Paragraph 3 of the United States Constitution. This authority is further reinforced by the
opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States as expressed in their decision in Bush vs
Gore which state as follows:
a. The individual citizen has no federal constitutional right to vote for electors for the
President of the United States unless and until the state legislature chooses a statewide
election as the means to implement its power to appoint members of the electoral
b. …the state legislature's power to select the manner for appointing electors is
plenary; it may, if it so chooses, select the electors itself
c. There is no doubt of the right of the legislature to resume the power at any time, for
it can neither be taken away nor abdicated
9. The request to perform forensic and compliance audits, perform a recount, conduct hearings,
and if necessary appoint electors supportive of President Donald J. Trump is fully justified due to
the improper conduct of the Michigan Secretary of State and lesser officials as well as privately
funded interfering entities administering the 2020 election. Their conduct was consistent with a
pattern of deliberate and illegal actions that caused irreparable harm to the integrity, accuracy,
and credibility of the election results. Their actions have subverted the will of the legal voters of
the State of Michigan and have denied to them a free and fair election.
10. The specific misconduct of the Michigan Secretary of State and lesser officials as well as
privately funded interfering entities which further justify this request and which render the
action requested of the Legislature imperative are as follows:
a. The Secretary of State’s unlawful distribution of absentee ballot applications to every
individual listed on the Qualified Voter File without first verifying the validity or accuracy
of the QVF in which it is well known that 20% of the individuals listed are ineligible to
vote in the State of Michigan. This is contrary to the proper practice of allowing the
initiative of requesting an absentee ballot to rest with the voter.
b. The Secretary of State’s unlawful distribution of absentee ballot applications included
distribution to numerous individuals over 120 years of age where records indicate that
some person actually voted in the name of that individual.
c. The Secretary of State’s establishment of a “partnership” with a third party
organization named Rock the Vote that granted them access to perform data entry into
Michigan’s Qualified Voter File.
d. Testimony from employees of the United States Postal Service indicating that
ineligible ballots mailed after the deadline set by law were deliberately and fraudulently
postmarked with dates that would enable them to be processed.
e. The verified existence of corrupt ballot counting software that attributed to the
Democrat candidate votes clearly marked for the Republican candidate. The full impact
of this software remains under evaluation however Antrim County is one example
where the impact of such corrupt ballot counting software was dramatic.
f. The refusal of Detroit election officials to respond to advance requests for
descriptions of what election procedures would be followed during the election.
g. The refusal of Detroit election officials to provide to witnesses unfettered access to
view the arrival at DDE of ballots from the United Stats Postal Service and satellite
locations throughout Detroit.
h. The refusal of Detroit election officials to provide witnesses unfettered access to
view ballot storage procedures in the satellite locations and Detroit Department of
i. The refusal of Detroit election officials to provide witnesses unfettered access to
observe the Relia-vote system.
j. The refusal of Detroit election officials to provide witnesses unfettered access to view
the sorting of ballots by precinct.
k. The refusal of Detroit election officials to provide witnesses unfettered access to view
the transfer of ballots to the TCF AV Counting Boards.
l. The establishment of privately funded and unapproved satellite voting locations and
the distribution without oversight of pre-election drop boxes throughout selected
communities using grants from the Center for Tech and Civic Life. These actions stand in
direct violation of the United States Constitution that grants solely to the state
legislatures the authority to determine the manner and conduct of elections and also
denies Michigan voters their 14th Amendment rights to equal protection under the law.
m. Unexplained pre-election drop offs of ballot-size boxes at the side door of the
Detroit Election Bureau. When confronted with camera rolling, suspects placed the
boxes in their vehicle and sped off without answering questions directed at them.
n. Unexplained drop offs and pick ups of ballots at senior centers.
o. The refusal on election day of Detroit election officials to respond to questions as to
how vote tallies were to be transferred to the County.
p. Repeated instances of Detroit election officials denying poll challengers the ability to
execute their duties in violation of MCL 168.733.
q. The existence of multiple and unsynchronized poll books – one for absentee ballots
and one for poll ballots – which enable a single voter to vote twice because a voter
could vote absentee within a specific timeframe and their voting status would not be
updated in the in person poll book to prevent voting again. Multiple observers reported
people actively exploiting this lack of critical management control.
r. The completion of duplicated ballots without the presence of Republican poll workers
in violation of MCL 168.765a(10).
s. The treatment of ballots for tabulation whose ballot numbers do not appear in either
the e-Poll book or the paper supplemental poll book with every indication that senior
Detroit election officials intended to find justification to count these ineligible votes.
t. The failure of the Detroit City Clerk to hire as poll workers personnel verified to
represent the Republican party in violation of MCL 168.765a(10) which requires as
At all times, at least 1 election inspector from each major political party must be
present at the absent voter counting place and the policies and procedures
adopted by the secretary of state regarding the counting of absent voter ballots
must be followed.”
The result being that a large number of confirmed Republicans who applied for service
prior to the deadline were rejected from participation in violation of law.
u. After more than three hours of little to no precinct activity - the arrival at 3:45am at
TCF Center of approximately 38,000 ballots of unknown origin delivered by a Detroit
Elections Bureau van with MI license plate 090×063.
v. The deliberate action of Detroit election officials to withhold from processing and
counting - approximately 10 boxes of military ballots until they had prevented poll
challengers from entering AVCB and witnessing the processing of those ballots. This in
spite of the fact that the military ballots were available to be processed during the
period in which virtually no counting activity was underway between midnight and
arrival of the 38,000 ballots of unknown origin.
w. The erection of visual barriers preventing poll challengers from viewing the
processing of military ballots in blatant violation of Michigan Code.
x. The connection to the internet of computers handling vote tabulation, vote
adjudication, as well as computers in use by election officials. Although Detroit election
officials denied the devices had connectivity - the Windows icon that represents an
internet connection was found to indicate an active connection on every tabulation
computer and every adjudication computer screen that was examined. In addition,
ethernet cable connections were traced to confirm physical connectivity of tabulation,
adjudication, and election official devices.
y. The actions of Democrat poll challengers to directly interfere with the actions of
Republican poll challengers as well as challengers from other organizations.
z. The eyewitness reports that extensive quantities of 50-count groups of ballots in
favor of the opposing candidate were repeatedly processed through tabulating
equipment for up to ten cycles each thereby falsely inflating by an entire order of
magnitude the number of votes in favor of the opposing candidate.
aa. The eyewitness reports that extensive quantities of ballots in favor of President
Donald J. Trump were deliberately and systematically diverted to adjudication stations
where they were converted to votes in favor of the opposing candidate.
ab. The Secretary of State establishing an online request form that unilaterally voided
the Michigan law requiring voters provide a signature when requesting an absentee
11. In the event that the audit or recount forms a basis to appoint electors supportive of
President Donald J. Trump – then we specifically request the appointment of electors whose
identities were determined by due process on 29 August 2020 during the State Convention of
the Michigan Republican Party as follows:
At Large Meshawn Maddock
At Large Kathy Berden
District 1 John Haggard
District 2 Kent Venderwood
District 3 Terri Lynn Land
District 4 Gerald Wall
District 5 Amy Facchinello
District 6 Rose Rook
District 7 Hank Choate
District 8 Mari-Ann Henry
District 9 Clifford Frost
District 10 Stanley Grot
District 11 Marian Sheridan
District 12 Timothy King
District 13 Michele Lundgren
District 14 Mayra Rodriguez
12. In conclusion the Legislature is requested to conduct forensic and compliance audits and
conduct a hand recount of votes with special emphasis on ballots diverted for adjudication and
source document military ballots. Concurrently, the legislature must aggressively conduct
hearings to uncover the source and extent of any fraudulent election processes, tabulation
irregularities, financial improprieties, or conflicts of interest, that compromised the integrity of
13. In the event that the results form a basis to determine that the levels of election fraud were
so pervasive so as to alter the outcome of the election and invalidate the results or a recount
reveals a result in favor of President Donald J Trump then we request that the Legislature
appoint the named electors who are fully supportive of the re-election of President Donald J.
Trump for President of the United States of America.
14. The legislature possesses the authority to take these actions. The requested actions are
legal and constitutional. Finally - the requested actions are justified since they are the only
remedy to election results that have been invalidated by the improper conduct of the Secretary
of State and lesser officials as well as privately funded interfering entities. The Legislature has
an obligation to protect the integrity and security of the vote. The Executive Committee and
Officers of the Fourteenth Congressional District Republican Party of the State of Michigan ask
that you demonstrate the courage to fully execute your duties in preservation of the sanctity of
the vote and the future of our free republic, and in representation of the electorate you swore
