FBI Investigating Allegation Made By Detroit Whistleblower That Ballots Were Ordered Backdated So They Would Count

Headlines Politics U.S.

Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox confirmed yesterday her party referred a whistleblower complaint to the FBI and U.S. attorney in Detroit.

“The MIGOP has referred a whistleblower case to the U.S. Attorney in which a city of Detroit employee was directed to change the date of receipt, in the official election record on ballots which had been received after the deadline,” Cox said. “This directive allegedly came from both City and State employees who were working at the TCF center. These allegations are highlighted by the city of Detroit’s attempt to block Republican poll challengers from supervising this process.”

Just the News reports that the FBI has officially opened an investigation into the case.

A whistleblower also came forward in Pennsylvania yesterday to allege USPS supervisors in that state gave postal workers orders to backdate mail-in ballots so they would be accepted and counted.
