Former Michigan Secretary of State Calls for Independent Audit of State Election Results

Headlines Politics U.S.

Former Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson called fraud allegations in Detroit “very concerning,” saying they “require court intervention.”

Johnson made the comments in a court affidavit filed in support of a lawsuit brought by a group of Republican poll watchers who are seeking a delay in the certification of the state’s election results until an audit of possibly fraudulent ballots can occur.

Johnson served as Michigan’s Secretary of State for 7 years from 2011 to 2018. She is now a state senator.
