Wayne County Election Board Republicans Sign Affidavits Saying They Were Coerced Into Certifying the Election
According to board chair Monica Palmer and GOP member William Hartmann, the county's corporate counsel, Janet Anderson-Davis, advised the board members that their job was "ministerial" and any concerns they expressed were outside of the board's authority.
"After the vote, public comment period began and dozens of people made personal remarks against me and Mr. Hartmann. The comments made accusations of racism and threatened me and members of my family. The public comment continued for over two hours and I felt pressured to continue the meeting without a break," Palmer said in her affidavit.
