In an extraordinary turnabout that foreshadows possible legal action, the two GOP members of Wayne County's election board signed affidavits Wednesday night alleging they were bullied and misled into approving election results in Michigan's largest metropolis and do not believe the votes should be certified until serious irregularities in Detroit votes are resolved.

“I voted not to certify, and I still believe this vote should not be certified,” GOP board member William C. Hartmann said in his affidavits. “Until these questions are addressed, I remain opposed to certification of the Wayne County results."
“The Wayne County election had serious process flaws which deserve investigation. I continue to ask for information to assure Wayne County voters that these elections were conducted fairly and accurately. Despite repeated requests I have not received the requisite information and believe an additional 10 days of canvas by the State Board of canvassers will help provide the information necessary," Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chairwoman Monica Palmer explained.
Both GOP board members signed sworn affidavits stating that they felt misled and unduly pressured to change their positions the night earlier.
The affidavits are backed up by videos posted to social media from a public zoom meeting.
In the first video, Wayne County Board Member of Canvassers Ned Staebler clearly bullies the two members that refused to certify the ballots by saying they will go down in history as "two racists" that "disenfranchised hundreds of thousands of black voters in Detroit."
But perhaps the most egregious example of extorting the members to influence their votes comes from Democrat Abraham Aiyash, when he implicitly threatens Monica Palmer's children on zoom by referencing what school they likely attend and asking what might happen “when they see all their black classmates.”
