THETFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. | The recent discovery of 289 absentee ballots from the 2020 election in Thetford Township has raised serious questions and sparked an investigation.
This scandal is yet another example of how the Democratic Party cannot be trusted to protect our most precious right – the right to vote.
It was recently reported that these ballots were found inside a storage unit at Storage One in Clio last August, which raises even more red flags about what really happened here.
It’s concerning that these ballots never made it into the hands of voters during the 2020 election, particularly when 77.5% were marked spoiled, suggesting they were issued new ballots later on.
What’s worse is that this occurred during a pandemic where many people didn’t want to leave their homes and risked not being able to perform their civic duty if they weren’t given new ballots.
According to a Michigan State Police report, the box with all of these ballots was initially given by current Township Clerk Nicole Moore shortly after the election to former Deputy Township Supervisor Rachel Stanke who was asked to store them away.
It wasn’t until Stanke tried returning them back that she realized what was actually inside the box – absentee ballots from Thetford Township.
Stanke contacted state police who recovered all of these lost ballots and now this investigation rests in the hands of the Attorney General’s office who are still looking into exactly what happened here.
To make matters worse, ABC 12 has been unable to reach out for comment from Moore regarding this incident as well.
It’s absolutely unacceptable for Democrats, especially elected officials like Nicole Moore, to so recklessly handle something as important as voting rights in our democracy – especially when it puts those most vulnerable at risk.
We must continue fighting against attempts by Democrats or anyone else trying to undermine our elections and keep Americans safe while exercising their right at polls come November 2024
