The change in course was approved by the two Republican and two Democratic canvassers with the demand that the Secretary of State's office conduct an audit of unbalanced absentee counting board results.
Yeah. Like 15-20 minutes ago. Then after the commercial break, she said that they reversed their vote, and voted 4-0 to certify the election, so there won't be a state audit.
The Wayne County Board of Canvassers abruptly changed course Tuesday night and certified the results of the Nov. 3 election after initially deadlocking 2-2 along party lines, which could have delayed the state process for authorizing results.
The deadlock decision had been lauded by Republicans but decried by Democrats. During a public comment session, the vote was described as a targeted attack on majority-Black Detroit.

So your assuming im a republican or you know whats right and your placing me as a republican because I am super smart?
I didn't imply you where either a Republican or a Democrat. I said this news is a classic example of partisan politics; you disagree because you want this too be more than it is.
But it IS more then YOU are claiming it is.
This isn't the half-witted "two wings of the same bird" political ideology you believe in because you cannot understand that there are three sides to the coin.
It is quite simply about voting in America and following the law.
There is nothing partisan about that.

Give them a few days, the Democrats will force the board to certify under some sort of threat of violence, either to the city/county or the board members themselves.
After hours of angry responses from Wayne County residents,the change in course wasapproved by the two Republican and two Democratic canvassers with the demand that the Secretary of State's office conduct a "comprehensive audit" of "unexplained precincts."
Now you deleted it. What game are you playing?

You cared for starters.
I'm sorry the facts aren't well received by someone who is being flagrantly intellectually dishonest.
Board Vice Chairman Jonathan Kinloch, one of the two Democrats, had been working with Republicans during the meeting to find a way that they would support certifying the results. Eventually, they landed on the idea of an audit, he said.
The high-stakes vote, with the eyes of the nation on Michigan's largest county, apparently took place while the video stream for the virtual meeting wasn't working.
