Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel verified that “8,000 to 10,000” suspected fraudulent registrations were delivered to Muskegon City Clerk prior to the 2020 election.
Michigan officials have forwarded an investigation from 2020 concerning a large number of voter registrations, supplied by an individual in Muskegon, to the FBI. This was recently affirmed by Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office.
Danny Wimmer, the press secretary for Nessel, stated that the individual had handed in between “8,000 to 10,000” possibly fraudulent forms to the Muskegon clerk in advance of the presidential election on Nov. 3, 2020.
Wimmer emphasized that this “attempted fraud” was detected before Election Day, underscoring that Michigan’s election procedures proved effective, and consequently, these applicants were not incorporated into the state’s voter lists.
“The city clerk in Muskegon detected the fraudulent material provided and alerted the proper authorities,” Wimmer said in a statement. “A thorough investigation was conducted by multiple agencies within the state and no successful fraud was perpetrated upon the state’s election process or qualified voter file.”
The ongoing investigation, initially disclosed in October 2020, has recently drawn increased attention from right-leaning websites.
Yet, Michigan officials have argued that this incident demonstrates the effectiveness of election administrators in identifying and thwarting potential malfeasance.
FBI Special Agent Mara Schneider chose not to comment on the election probe when approached on Friday. Wimmer did not immediately provide an answer regarding the timeline of the referral to the federal authorities.
However, Wimmer noted that the case was handed over to the FBI due to its national oversight. He further revealed that the individual who provided the registrations to Muskegon Clerk Ann Meisch’s office was affiliated with GBI Strategies, a Tennessee-based organization that undertakes voter registration campaigns.
“Fraud was determined to have occurred at the lowest levels of the company,” Wimmer said in a statement. “The leading internal indication was that fraud was being perpetrated against GBI Strategies by its employees to fabricate work product without conducting the work expected of them and not in explicit pursuit of defrauding the election infrastructure of the state.”
During the 2019-2020 election cycle, federal disclosures show that GBI Strategies received approximately $5 million from Democratic entities and campaigns for canvassing, engaging voters, and other related activities. Among those who reported financial transactions with GBI Strategies in this timeframe were Biden’s presidential campaign and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
In October 2020, the Michigan State Police initially disclosed their investigation into “irregularities in voter registration forms” within Muskegon.
Wimmer indicated that as a part of the inquiry into possible election forgery, a search warrant was executed at GBI Strategies’ Southfield location in the same month.
“Detected in this search were pay cards, pre-pay style cell phones and voter registration forms, all determined to be normal operational devices in GBI Strategies’ line of work,” Wimmer confirmed. “Also found during the search were several firearms, which prompted a response from federal agents of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms.
Lawyer and political commentator Rogan O’Handley weighed in on the development.
Michigan AG confirms the 8,000-10,000 ballot registrations turned into the Muskegon city clerk by a Democrat operative were *all* fraudulent,” O’Handley said. “They kept this a secret for 3 years but [Gateway Pundit] exposed it. Why has nobody gone to jail for this?”
“Do people really think this was the only place this happened?” he continued. “If they would dump 10,000 ballot registrations in Muskegon, a town of 38,000 people, just imagine how many they dumped in Detroit, Lansing, and other Michigan cities. Could be hundreds of thousands! And that’s just Michigan!”
“GBI Strategies, the Leftist group who paid the mules to file fraudulent ballot registrations, operated in *20 states* during the 2020 election and took over $11M from pro-Biden PACs and paid its mules $15/hr,” he added. “$11M can buy you a lot of mules. I’m telling you, [Gateway Pundit] may have uncovered the foundational Democrat “ballot mule” organization to perpetrate systemic election fraud in 2020.”
In 2020, just 44,000 votes in Georgia, Arizona and Wisconsin kept Trump from tying Biden in the Electoral College. Special Counsel Jack Smith has charged the former president for claiming there was fraud in the 2020 election, alleging that it constituted a “conspiracy to defraud the United States.”
