The pushmi pullyou is a creature of decisive direction compared to the two Wayne County, Michigan Republicans who wouldn’t certify the election results, then they did, and now they say they want to “rescind” their votes — except that now it’s too late, because the election results have been sent to the secretary of state, in accordance with state rules. Washington Post:

In affidavits signed Wednesday evening, the two GOP members of the four-member Wayne County Board of Canvassers allege that they were improperly pressured into certifying the election and accused Democrats of reneging on a promise to audit votes in Detroit.

“I rescind my prior vote,” Monica Palmer, the board’s chairwoman, wrote in an affidavit reviewed by The Washington Post. “I fully believe the Wayne County vote should not be certified.”

William Hartmann, the other Republican on the board, has signed a similar affidavit, according a person familiar with the document. Hartmann did not respond to a message from The Post.

Their next step is to see if an audit can be done. It doesn’t seem likely.

They probably just wanted to take themselves off of Trump’s wrath radar after seeing cybersecurity head fired.

Einstein quipped that he believed there were only 2 infinite things, the universe & human stupidity. He said he wasn’t sure about the universe.

I’m guessing these people are getting death threats from rabid Magas and possible even personal messages from high ups in the GOP.

Word I hear is that for one of them, this was a distraction stunt to take people’s eyes off an unrelated matter of corruption charges.

If that is true, somebody needs to get it out to the national media ASAP.
