Back on April 22nd reported the Democrats on Michigan's Board of State Canvassers failed to do their jobs and rejected the Michigan Bureau of Elections certification of the Unlock Michigan petition. The two Democrat members wanted even more investigations to occur and voted against the Michigan Bureau of Elections finding.  The two Democrat Board members apparently did not trust the investigation performed by Michigan’s Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel who after a 7- 8 month investigation found no evidence of criminal activity.

As Fred informed us in my interview with him on April 23rd, this has happened in the past.  When it does happen the petition group goes directly to the Michigan Supreme Court and the Board of Canvassers are ordered to accept the recommendation.

That is exactly what happened last Friday when the Michigan Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the Democrats on the Michigan Board of Canvassers were not legally entitled to call for further investigations into the Unlock Michigan Ballot Proposal.  The Detroit News reported in their ruling the Supreme Court stated the Democrats on the Board:

“has a clear legal duty to certify the petition."

Michigan's Board of State Canvassers consists of two Democrat and two Republican members.

  • Chair: Norman D. Shinkle – Republican
  • Vice-Chair: Julie Matuzak – Democrat
  • Member: Jeannette Bradshaw – Democrat
  • Member: Tony Daunt – Republican

Please listen to my interview with Unlock Michigan Spokesman Fred Wszolek today and hear his thoughts on the total and complete vindication of all their work:
