Key GOP Michigan canvassing board member expected to vote against certifying results - CNN

Paul Mitchell, who said he spoke days ago with Norman Shinkle, one of the two GOP members on the board, Shinkle indicated last week he would vote against certifying the election results until an investigation is completed so as to push a delay even though there is no evidence of fraud or malfeasance that would necessitate such a move.

Shinkle told the New York Times that he had received hundreds of messages both favoring and opposing certification.

If the certification cannot be handled in the courts, Chatfield said it would then go to the state Legislature, where Republican members could try and appoint electors to vote for Trump instead of appointing those honoring the popular vote.

"It's a place I really don't want to be in," he said.

Chatfield, who met Friday with Trump at the White House, said he supported an audit of election results in Wayne County -- the state's largest, which includes Detroit -- to investigate why there are some discrepancies in vote totals and that the state Legislature is also looking into how the election was conducted.

Out of more than 878,000 votes cast in Wayne County, there was a discrepancy over approximately 450 votes, officials there have said.

The state Republican Party and the Republican National Committee sent a letter Saturday to the board members asking them to delay certification for 14 days and wait for an audit of Wayne County's election results.

There has been no legal or factual basis to any way question the choice they have made."

She added, "Just as we expected every county certification, we expect the state board of canvassers to do it as well and everyone in position of authority to follow the law with respect to the will of the voters."

Responding to whether Trump put pressure on him and his colleagues in their meeting, Chatfield told Fox, "There was this outrage that the President was going to ask us to break the law, he was going to ask us to interfere, and that just simply didn't happen."

After the White House meeting Chatfield and state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey said in a joint statement: "We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors, just as we have said throughout this election."
