Outgoing Republican President Donald Trump’s campaign appears to be attempting to talk Michigan GOP leaders into breaking state election laws, but Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey (R-Clarklake) is not having it.

“There have been reports of calls coming from the Trump campaign regarding Michigan’s electors,” Shirkey tweeted Wednesday. “We do not know if these calls are legitimate, but we do know for certain that we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan’s electors.”

In a followup tweet, Shirkey added that any change to the state’s current election process “would require intervention by our courts.”

In a followup tweet, Shirkey added that any change to the state’s current election process “would require intervention by our courts.”

The state’s 16 electors are set to cast their votes on Dec. 14 for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, who won Michigan’s popular vote by about 154,000 votes. The election was certified last week. Michigan is a winner-take-all state.

The Trump campaign appears to be attempting a last-ditch effort to illegally turn Trump’s loss in Michigan into a win by requesting legislators to draft a resolution to appoint pro-Trump electors instead.

Shirkey, House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R-Levering) and other GOP lawmakers flew to D.C. last month to meet with Trump, amid much speculation that the president would ask them to overturn Michigan’s election for him. Shirkey and Chatfield insisted afterward that the meeting was primarily to ask Trump for more COVID-19 relief funds and barely touched on the election, but Trump claimed on social media that the meeting was “much different than reported by the media” and “massive voter fraud will be shown.”

Silly billy. You aren't meant to be open about trying to cheat the election.
