To say things surrounding the 2020 election are chaotic and suspicious would be the understatement of the century.
There’s been a whole slew of worrying events from abruptly stopping counting ballots, to ballot counters kicking out vote inspectors and many many more.
And this Detroit vote inspector just blew lid off the suspicious counting going on in Michigans largest city.
The inspector describes a chaotic scene where ballots are just being dumped on tables, with only a handful of people to count them and then how Republican inspectors were asked to leave without signing out.
Watch the video:
In case you’re wondering how ballot fraud works or think “oh maybe a few hundred but never thousands”. It’s not an elegant system, it’s just brute force. Anyone who has worked urban elections knows this. pic.twitter.com/LZqxiVFVh2

Pretty disturbing huh?
Well thankfully there’s now a recount underway in Michigan.
Earlier, the Trump campaign announced it had filed a lawsuit in Michigan to observe ballot counts and promised to demand a recount in Wisconsin, both states where Joe Biden holds a narrow lead but the race has not yet been called.
“President Trump’s campaign has not been provided with meaningful access to numerous counting locations to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process, as guaranteed by Michigan law,” Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien said in a statement. “We have filed suit today in the Michigan Court of Claims to halt counting until meaningful access has been granted. We also demand to review those ballots which were opened and counted while we did not have meaningful access.”
Political parties are typically allowed to appoint elections challengers to observe a transparent vote-counting process.
Biden holds a 0.2 percent lead as of this writing in Michigan, or around 45,000 votes, and 96 percent of precincts have reported.
But poll workers across the state had over 100,000 more ballots to count Wednesday, hoping to have a final result by day’s end.
What’s happening in this election is an absolute travesty.
When Trump wins reelection, he and the GOP need to instill some serious federal oversight on our elections so that this doesn’t become the norm.
