Attorney General Dana Nessel is leading the bipartisan effort to hold those who lied about the 2020 election accountable, and investigating how they profited from tricking Michiganders.
If Republicans pass these 39 bills, rights that helped Michiganders shatter voter turnout records during the pandemic would be stripped.
With the fallout of the 2020 election on her mind and 39 bills designed to restrict voter access in 2022, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson takes on the challenge of defending democracy.
An archaic system that has for centuries held back true democracy in the United States has now fueled violence in the halls of the Capitol itself.
As the dust settled on Capitol Hill, three Michigan Republicans voted to reject the election results—including their own victories.
"It is unacceptable for political candidates to treat our election system as though we are a third-world nation," said the now-former Republican.
Threats, racism and an armed protest at an elected official's home are the latest in the rising potential of political violence in Michigan.
