Apparently this is a few days old but I haven't seen it posted. A judge ruled that the MI secretary of state broke the law with making the decision by herself to mail absentee ballot applications to all registered voters and offering guidance on signature verification on absentee ballots.
"If a signature has "slight similarities” in signatures on absentee ballots should lead a counter to decide “in favor of finding that the voter’s signature was valid.”"
MI Secretary of State Breaks the Law

But all claims of voter fraud have been debunked and public officials can't be held accountable for breaking voters law so thing to see here.

Good catch!

From your source:


A Michigan judge ruled last week Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) broke state law when she unilaterally issued rules related to absentee balloting, legitimizing a key claim made by the Trump campaign in its legal challenges to the 2020 election. Benson issued several unilateral orders during the 2020 election including sending absentee ballot applications to all registered voters. She also issued “guidance” on how to evaluate absentee ballots, a move Michigan Court of Claims Chief Judge Christopher Murray held violated the state’s Administrative Procedures Act. Genetski v. Benson, No. 20-216-MM in the Court of Claims for the State of Michigan


Here is a copy of the court paper work.

The law does not need the media to cover it. All the law needs is enforcement of the law. Media has no bearing on the rule of law. I hope she is charged with a crime. Likely white collar but I hope she gets sued and bankrupted. She knowingly broke the law.

The original suit was filed October 6, 2020 — prior to the presidential election — but was not decided until March 9, 2021.


Wheels of Justice are slow.

Did you actually read the judge’s finding?

The decision to mail absentee ballot applications to all voters was not part of the lawsuit—you just made that part up.

The lawsuit concerned only the guidance on verification of signatures. There was no finding by the judge that the guidance actually had any effect on the outcome of the election. In fact, the plaintiff himself (Genetski) “did not allege that this guidance caused him to accept a signature that he believed was invalid.”

That means that the plaintiff made no claims whatsoever and had no evidence for fraud on the part of any of the voters whose signatures he verified.

Furthermore, the guidance on verification of signatures applied equally to Republican votes as to Democrat votes, so it was nonpartisan.

"Though I will not hesitate to act when justified, I also will not abuse the investigatory powers of this Department to launch a political attack on any state official, regardless of party or beliefs,” said Nessel in her response. 

Nessel also highlighted the American Bar Association’s “Standards for Criminal Justice: Prosecutorial Investigations” in her response:  “Law enforcement officials have an ethical duty to ‘resist political pressure intended to influence the conduct, focus, duration or outcome of a criminal investigation,’ and to ‘limit the political impact’ of an investigation ‘without regard to the official’s personal political beliefs or affiliations,’” said Nessel

Key Trump claim proven!



Trump’s campaign and Republicans argued in cases nationwide that Article II of the Constitution requires state legislatures to make the rules governing presidential elections, and state election officials and courts lack the authority to change those rules.

Murray’s ruling undercuts the Democrat narrative that Republican legal challenges to 2020 election procedures were without merit and had therefore all been rejected by the courts.

Seems like nobody did, including braitbart.

Most of it was dismissed, including the count claiming that the secretary of state broke the law.

Yeah...She'll serve time giving a deposition.


IV. CONCLUSION

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that pursuant to MCR 2.116(C)(10), plaintiffs’ cross-motion for summary disposition is GRANTED in part with respect to Count II of the amended complaint because the guidance issued by the Secretary of State on October 6, 2020, with respect to signature-matching standards was issued in violation of the Administrative Procedures Act


The issue seems to be whether signature verification should be based first on assuming a signature is valid, verses signature verification based on assuming a signature is invalid.

I think "innocent until proven guilty" should be the standard, and that signature verification should be based on leaning toward the validity of a signature first, rather than leaning toward every signature being invalid.
