King v. Whitmer

No. 2:20-cv-13134-LVP-RSW (E.D. Mich.) | Closed

Plaintiff Timothy King and two other GOP Elector nominees filed suit against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson alleging “massive election fraud.” The scheme was executed by various methods, but mostly by “old-fashioned ballot-stuffing” leading to the counting of hundreds of thousands of “illegal, ineligible, duplicate or purely fictitious ballots” that far surpass Joe Biden’s margin.   Plaintiffs also mention that this same pattern of election fraud occurred in other critical swing states – Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Wisconsin.

Plaintiffs explain how Dominion Voting Systems with Smartmatic software was used to manipulate voting and prevent post-election audits.  Beyond the computer fraud, the complaint lists activities in violation of the Michigan Election Code to cover up, alter, and supplement the vote manipulation.

The complaint supports its allegations through fact witnesses that describe their experiences and through expert witnesses that demonstrate how the intentional fabrication of a fair election was implemented.

They asked the District Court to:

  1. Halt the certification of election results until there could be a full investigation and court hearing, and
  2. Order an independent audit to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the November 3, 2020 election.

The District Court denied relief, stating that it could not accept the case, in part because it was brought too late.  The Court did this without hearing a single fact or expert witness.

Plaintiffs filed an appeal to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals while simultaneously petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the time-sensitive case quickly and maintain the status quo so that the “passage of time and the actions of Respondents so not render the case moot.

The U.S. Supreme Court denied a motion to expedite, but the petition has yet to be addressed.

On February 22, 2021, the Court denied the petition to hear this case.
