Michigan residents went to Lansing Thursday demanding their government perform a forensic audit of the 2020 election.
Attorney Matt DePerno wrote up an adaptation of the Arizona affidavit for Michiganders to sign, and people from around the state personally returned them Thursday to the statehouse.
Matt DePerno: "They don't have the courage or the guts to stand up and say they were wrong."
President of the Michigan Conservative Coalition, Rosanne Ponkowski, gave a quick update from the statehouse.
Rosanne Ponkowski: "We started about 10 days ago collecting affidavits. We put out a call across the state. We collected almost 3,000 in our office in Walled Lake, and we're now meeting up with other patriots across the state to add their affidavits to the boxes that you see lined up here."
Secretary of State candidate Kristina Karamo delivered signed affidavits to current Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson's office.
Kristina Karamo: "These are affidavits from everyday citizens within the state of Michigan demanding an audit."
Reporter: "I was told that there were about 7,500-plus affidavits. Have you heard a number yet about the number of affidavits that citizens of Michigan have signed?"
Karamo: "Yes, it's something around that number."
Church Militant's Resistance team returned several thousand signed affidavits. However, Sen. Mike Shirkey's office would not sign for them. James Hooper, chair of Wayne County, 11th District, explained the problem.
James Hooper: "No one from the senator's office is willing to accept these on behalf of the people."
The signers want the public to know the phone number for citizens to inquire why these signed affidavits were refused: (517) 373-5932. DePerno tells Michiganders what to do next.
Matt DePerno: "You've got to continue to call them. They won't answer the phones; send them messages."
The politicians are stonewalling the people for now. Only perseverance on the part of the citizenry will produce results.
