Hundreds rally to protect voting results
U. S. Rep. Andy Levin was among a couple hundred people who rallied in Ferndale to protect valid election results in Michigan.
The rally was held Wednesday in downtown Ferndale at Nine Mile Road and Woodward Avenue. A group called Protect the Results issued a statement saying the rally included metro Detroit residents who have mobilized to respond to President Trump’s effort to claim victory before all the votes in the state were counted.
Trump lawyers have filed a lawsuit to halt the counting of votes in Michigan after Trump was running behind former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. before all votes in the state have been tallied. The initial filing with the Michigan Court of Claims was rejected Thursday.
Among the rally attendants were such groups as Indivisible Fighting 9, and similar Indivisible groups representing Huron Valley, Troy, Birmingham and Bloomfield.
“When the democratic principles that America was founded on are intentionally and repeatedly flouted in a raw powers grab,” said Debbie Rosenman, a member of Protect the Result, in a statement, “the people are insisting on a return to (the) rule of law. Every vote counts and must be counted.”
The group said more rallies will be planned in the future “if results continue to be continued.”
Their rally lasted for more than 90 minutes and started at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
