Speaker at MI Election Audit Rally Floats Theory That Republicans Rigged Election for Biden in 2020

Speaker at MI Election Audit Rally Floats Theory That Republicans Rigged Election for Biden in 2020

There are dozens of right-wing delusions surrounding the 2020 election, practically all of which claim that Democrats somehow worked with election companies and foreign governments to facilitate widespread election fraud, "stealing" a victory from former President Donald Trump.

Republicans who reject these conspiracy theories have seen their reputation suffer among the Republican base. Georgia's GOP governor—Brian Kemp—and secretary of state Brad Raffensperger repeatedly faced Trump's ire and death threats from his voters for their refusal to cave to his pressure in undoing the state's election results, for instance.

Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming was censured by her state's Republican party and removed from her position as GOP Conference Chair for acknowledging the legitimacy of now-President Joe Biden's victory and for voting to impeach Donald Trump over the deadly failed insurrection his lies prompted.

While most of their critics decry them as RINOs [Republicans in Name Only] who didn't fight the nonexistent "fraud" hard enough, a new conspiracy theory surfaced at a right-wing protest outside the Michigan state Capitol, where one Trump voter claimed it was, in fact, Republicans who "stole" the election.

The speaker at the event, who joined others calling for yet another partisan audit of the 2020 election results, said:

"Whoever won the presidential election in 2020 gets his butt kicked in the midterms next year. Stop and think about that! If these Republicans and other Republicans across the country, did they really want Trump to win? No, because Biden winning guarantees them that they might be able to get rid of [Michigan Democratic governor Gretchen] Whitmer, [Michigan Democratic Attorney General Dana] Nessel, [Michigan Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn] Benson, and gain more seats on the Republican side next year. Think about this!"

People thought about it...and immediately dismissed the fantasy.

Prospects are looking grim for Democrats retaining their congressional majority next November, and some hoped the speaker's conspiracy would catch on, discouraging enough Republican voters from participating.

The midterm elections are just over a year away.

Kamala Harris Brought In More Money In Her 'Opening Weekend' Than 'Twisters' Did—And Wow

Twisters, directed by Lee Isaac Chung, is a standalone sequel to 1996's Twister that's received generally positive reviews from critics since its release this past weekend. The movie made $80.5 million over its opening weekend—just shy of what Harris raised in the immediate aftermath since President Joe Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed her to be his successor.
