Michigan Recount Devolves Into Chaos As Multiple Federal Lawsuits Filed
Yesterday we noted that the recount process in Michigan had seemingly devolved into chaos after multiple state and federal lawsuits had been filed by several parties. In addition to the efforts of Stein and Trump to argue their case before the Election Commission, the Michigan Attorney General also filed a lawsuit alleging that “If allowed to proceed, the statewide hand recount could cost Michigan taxpayers millions of dollars and would put Michigan voters at risk of being disenfranchised in the electoral college.”
Now, after Trump was unsuccessful at getting the recount overturned with the Michigan Board of State Canvassers, both he and Stein have filed competing lawsuits in federal courts. According to The Hill, Trump is suing the Director of Elections Christopher Thomas and Michigan’s Board of State Canvassers alleging that “without immediate action by this court, Trump will continue to suffer irreparable injury.’
