By the way, folks, according to The Washington Post, they are protesting in Michigan. “Armed protesters, alleging voter fraud, have surrounded the home of Michigan’s sex-cretary [sic] of state.”

Her name is Jocelyn Benson, her home is surrounded.

She'd just finished wrapping a string of lights around her home's portico, Saturday night. She was about to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas with her four-year-old son, “when a crowd of protesters marched up carrying American flags and guns.”

About 24 protesters chanted, “Stop the Steal,” and accused — she's a Democrat — of ignoring widespread voter fraud and so forth.

“She’s decided to completely ignore all of the credible, credible, fraudulent evidence that has been continually pointed out,” said one demonstrator, Genevieve Peters — she live-streamed the protest in Detroit on Facebook.

So, there is evidence of some protests taking place out there.

Benson responded to the event with a statement posted Sunday night on Twitter, saying: “The demands made outside my home were unambiguous, loud and threatening. They targeted me in my role as Michigan’s Chief Election Officer. But the threats of those gathered weren’t actually aimed at me — or any other elected officials in this state. They were aimed at the voters.”
