Bailey Vs Antrim County

William Bailey filed suit Nov. 23, accusing the county of election fraud, a violation of the 'purity of election clause' and said his constitutional rights had been violated after a marijuana ordinance proposal passed by a single vote. The fact Bailey, a realtor and member of the county's planning commission, lives in Central Lake Township, not the Village of Central Lake Village where the ordinance proposal was on the ballot, was not raised in oral arguments Dec. 3. The next day, Elsenheimer signed an order giving Bailey and his attorney, Matthew DePerno, access to the county's voting machines for a forensic examination, which took place Dec. 6. Initial reports from county officials said the Washington, D.C. - based security staff tasked with performing the exam were associated with Rudy Giuliani's election-result-challenging legal team. Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, represented by two attorneys with the state's Attorney General's office, filed an emergency motion signed by AG Dana Nessell, asking to be allowed to intervene in the case and be added as a named defendant. Dominion Voting Systems supplies polling equipment in 28 states, and has been the subject of vigorous criticism from President Donald Trump and his surrogates following the Nov. 3 election.
