Charges dropped.


Still can’t believe they were going to charge her for the state’s own mistake, and then had the gall to withhold information from the defense. But it’s the home state of Nathan Bedford Forrest so not surprised.

Good to see Dems fighting back.

“Extensive evidence of fraud and forgery”: Michigan Dems say GOP submitted fake signatures | Salon.com

State Democrats submitted more than 250 pages worth of complaints ahead of the deadline to challenge candidates' nominating petitions, accusing candidates James Craig and Perry Johnson of submitting forged signatures and fellow Republican candidate Tudor Dixon of a disqualifying error. Candidates must submit at least 15,000 voter signatures to qualify for the ballot, but Democrats say Craig and Robinson used dead people's names and names of people who are not registered to vote, and in some cases had people sign multiple petitions. The complaints accused the two candidates of using a team of campaign workers to sign petitions using names and addresses of unwitting residents.

GOP Voter Sentenced for Casting Dead Mom's Ballot, Said Election Not 'Fair'

"I do believe there was a lot of voter fraud," the registered Republican told investigators, claiming she had not cast an illegal ballot.



...
I read this it's insanity. Not sure how she got off without going to jail.

“What we’re hearing is voter fraud is out there,” Lawson told the judge. “And essentially what we’re seeing here is someone who says ‘Well, I’m going to commit voter fraud because it’s a big problem and I’m just going to slide in under the radar. And I’m going to do it because everybody else is doing it and I can get away with it.’

“I don’t subscribe to that at all,” he said. “And I think the attitude you hear in the interview is the attitude that differentiates this case from the other cases.”

A number of examples of the Michigan candidate petition problems can be seen at the link below, including whole pages that were the same but for different candidates.

Possibility the campaigns were not involved:

"The bureau said it was working to refer the fraud to law enforcement for criminal investigation.

“At this point, the Bureau does not have reason to believe that any specific candidates or campaigns were aware of the activities of fraudulent-petition circulators," staff wrote.

The bureau identified 36 circulators who submitted sheets consisting entirely of invalid signatures across at least 10 campaigns, including for governor and local judgeships. Staff did not flag a reason for the fraud but noted the difficulty securing circulators and signatures for campaigns and ballot initiatives nationwide during the pandemic. Circulators often are paid per signature.

Staff identified an unusually large number of sheets with every signature line completed or that showed no normal wear such as folds, scuffing or minor damage from rain. They flagged sheets on which handwriting of certain letters across different signatures and information was near identical. Staff also reported an unusually high number of signatures corresponding to dead voters and to addresses where living voters no longer live."
