Voters Need Answers: House Democrats Call for Investigation into Rep. Daire Rendon

Rendon’s attempts to meddle with election equipment are extremely concerning

LANSING – On Tuesday, House Democratic Leader Donna Lasinski released a letter to Speaker Jason Wentworth calling for a thorough investigation into efforts by Rep. Daire Rendon to meddle with election equipment. On the surface, Rep. Rendon’s actions appear unethical and extremely concerning, and it’s critical that the House Business Office investigate further and determine whether and how she used state resources to aid in this election conspiracy.

“Michigan voters have had more than enough of lies and conspiracy theories, but the Michigan GOP has repeatedly doubled down on sowing doubt and fear—and Rep. Rendon’s recent escapades are just one more example,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Rep. Rendon’s actions are a reprehensible attempt to compromise election equipment for the sake of unhinged conspiracies, and voters deserve answers about whether she used taxpayer-funded resources to do so. Every instance of behavior like this weakens public trust in our election systems and makes our state a less safe place for election workers and volunteers, especially if bad actors see they can undermine our democracy without consequences. Rep. Rendon must be held accountable, and we firmly support an unbiased investigation as outlined in Leader Lasinski’s letter.”
