“Today’s partisan spectacle is nothing by a desperate attempt by Republican legislators to cast a shadow of doubt over the legitimacy of our election. It’s yet another political stunt designed to undermine confidence in our electoral process and disenfranchise voters who legally cast their ballots in record numbers.

“From frivolous lawsuits to serial press conferences heavy on vitriol and devoid of evidence, this latest political antic is not only outrageous but un-American as it disrespects the brave men and women who fought and died for the right to vote and have their voice heard.

“In America, the voters decide who will represent us, not the courts or the Legislature. More than 5.5 million Michiganders have spoken, and their will must be respected by politicians. The Republicans’ coordinated assault on our democracy — including meritless lawsuits, gaslighting and provoking unlawful and dangerous behaviors in Michigan and across our nation — will only yield dire consequences for Michigan and for our country.”
