For all of the claims that the Trump people have been silent and not been working toward righting the wrong that was last November, it’s interesting to note that the mainstream press has completely ignored this little tidbit:

A Michigan judge ruled last week that Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson violated state law by unilaterally altering absentee voting rules ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

At issue is a now-invalidated directive Benson issued to Michigan clerks in October relating to the signature review of absentee ballots. In the guidance, the secretary of state reportedly directed clerks to conduct the signature review “begin[ning] with the presumption that” the signature on the absentee is valid.

The directive went on to say that if there were “any redeeming qualities in the application or return envelope signature as compared to the signature on file,” clerks should “treat the signature as valid.” Such “redeeming qualities” allegedly included “similar distinctive flourishes” and “more matching features than nonmatching features.”

But that “presumption is found nowhere in state law,” State Court of Claims Judge Christopher Murray wrote in his ruling, issued March 9. “The mandatory presumption goes beyond the realm of mere advice and direction, and instead is a substantive directive that adds to the pertinent signature-matching standards.”

It should be noted that this was precisely the argument that the Trump team was making before the votes had even been counted and in many more places than just Michigan.

The Constitution quite clearly states that election law is the preview of the state legislatures.

But in Michigan, in Pennsylvania, and several other states, some 20 of them by my count, that power was usurped and it is beyond all logic to suggest that that power being stolen did not affect the outcome of the election.

It seems to me we have two alternatives. Invalidate that election removing the Democrats from power, else let the Democrats try and fight this one in higher level courts.
