Three Words You’ll Hear Often Over the Next Four Years—Trump was Right

Trump Was Right: Michigan Judge Rules State's 2020 Almost-Anything-Goes Ballot Signature Rule Was 'Invalid' – PJ Media

One month before the November 2020 election, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson ordered elections offices to presume that the signatures on ballots were valid.

Republicans and elections clerks brought a lawsuit. Just the News reports the ruling directs elections officials to ignore the October 2020 directive in future elections.

Benson had instructed local election clerks a month before the Nov. 3 election to start with a “presumption” that all signatures on absentee ballots were valid and only reject those that had “multiple significant and obvious” inconsistencies. Republicans and one election clerk challenged her instructions in court.

Michigan Court of Claims Judge Christopher Murray wrote in his ruling that the secretary of state was supposed to have held months of hearings on the efficacy of such a rule change, issued public notices, and received comments before enacting the rule change.

In Disney’s Aladdin there’s a moment where Iago (voiced admirably by Gilbert Gottfried) says “I think I’m gonna have a heart attack and die from that surprise.” That’s how I feel now.
