Last week, we blogged about Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s court date with accountability. If you remember, rather than accepting her court date to answer for the misleading voter fraud claims she’s been pushing to justify her voter suppression package, Ruth Johnson claimed she had immunity and attempted to weasel out by sending a subordinate.
Well, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Borman saw through Johnson’s flimsy reasoning and ordered her to appear for her court date with accountability.
The outcome? Judge Paul D. Borman ordered Ruth Johnson to remove the citizenship checkbox:
Borman’s decision stated that the checkbox would prove to be an unnecessary obstacle to voters and “create chaos” and “irreparable injury to the voting process.”
A waste of taxpayer time and resources? That doesn’t even scratch the surface. Rather than ensuring a free and fair election for all of Michigan’s voters, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson tried every gimmick, misleading statistic, and argument to make sure of one thing: you stay home on election day.
Fortunately, Judge Paul D Borman’s decision removed all doubt and held Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson accountable for her actions, and we don’t think Ms. Johnson will be looking for a second date with accountability.
If you haven’t already, today is the last day to register to vote in Michigan. And with Secretary of State Ruth Johnson at the helm, it’s more important than ever you do it today.
Confused? Here is some background:
During the primary, Ruth Johnson’s ham-handed handling of the election invited widespread scorn and ridicule, but that hasn’t stopped her.
If Ruth Johnson truly cared about the integrity of our elections (and as Secretary of State she should), then why did she assist in covering up Jase Bolger’s election fraud? The report shows the Michigan Secretary of State actively delayed the investigation by nearly two months, saying the request for video files had stirred up a “bee’s nest in the SOS administration.”
