Michigan’s Wayne County Certifies Election Results After Initial Deadlock
Michigan’s most populous county reversed course on Nov. 17 and unanimously certified its Nov. 3 election results, shortly after two GOP members of Michigan’s Wayne County Board of Canvassers cast a vote against the move which resulted in a deadlocked 2-2 vote.

The pair were reportedly called a “disgrace” by Rev. Wendell Anthony, a pastor and head of the Detroit branch of the civil rights organization the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
“You have extracted a Black city out of a county and said the only ones that are at fault is the city of Detroit, where 80 percent of the people who reside here are African Americans. Shame on you!” Anthony said.
After the meeting, Hartmann said the intense criticism didn’t cause him to change his vote. Rather, he said he acted because the board had agreed to ask the secretary of state to investigate Detroit’s election results.
The Trump campaign, Wayne County Board of Canvassers and the NAACP didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment by The Epoch Times.
Tuesday’s meeting came after a lawsuit to delay the certification was rejected by the Michigan Court of Appeals on Monday. Michael Riordan, the presiding judge on the appeals court, wrote that the appeal request was denied “for failure to persuade the Court of the existence of manifest error requiring reversal.”
I decree and declare that President Donald J Trump won the November 3rd 2020 Presidential Election for what God has already done in heaven is done on earth. In Jesus name we pray. AMEN
