The Michigan House of Representatives introduced a bill on Tuesday that would create a bipartisan audit board to review the 2020 presidential election.
“A thorough, bipartisan review will help us identify what works, what doesn’t, and how to make our elections secure and accessible for every Michigan voter,” State Rep. Steve Carra (R) said, who wrote the bill, according to Breitbart News.
“I know my colleagues on both sides of the aisle care about secure elections that the voters can trust; my plan will help ensure Michigan elections are fair, honest, and accurate,” he added.
In an interview with FOX-17 West Michigan, Carra noted, ““A lot of people might say that people want to overturn the election or undo the election, I haven’t heard a single person say that. People from my community are saying they want to verify the election results, and whoever won, won.”
According to mlive.com, “Under House Bill 5091, a bipartisan audit board would be tasked with contracting an outside group to conduct the investigation of the 2020 general election.”
The report added, “The audit would be required to begin no later than 45 days after the bill takes effect, and the corporation would have 90 days to complete the audit. The bipartisan audit board would then have two weeks to complete and submit a final report.”
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) has criticized plans to audit the 2020 election. In a Detroit News report in February, she claimed more than 18,000 ballots have already been reviewed.
The bill may not pass, but the effort represents the wishes of many across Michigan who continue to question the results of the 2020 election.
