SEAN HANNITY (HOST): This was one of the many serious issues in the all-important swing state also of Michigan. According to numerous now-sworn affidavits in Wayne County, quote, "Allegations include workers coaching people on how to vote, peeking at the ballots to see how people voted before processing them and preventing Republican poll inspectors from being able to effectively watch the counting process."

And last night, because of all these irregularities and accusations of fraud, well, there were two Republicans on the county's board of canvassers that said, you know what, we can't justify certifying the election result. That is, until -- well, they did that, then they were called racist. Families threatened. They were outing where their kids went to school and during a public, you know, comment period, all on a Zoom call -- you can't make this up, take a look.


Just a small example of the truly vile smears leveled against the two G.O.P. members on Wayne County's board of canvassers, and unfortunately this kind of hysteria, vitriol is not unique to Detroit. 

All over the country, Democrats, their allies, the media mob, completely apoplectic that Republicans are attempting to verify the election results. According to them, it is unpatriotic, even treasonous, to investigate sworn affidavits of their fellow citizens alleging real election misconduct.
