Monumental: Zoom @ Noon Today. Legislators File Federal Lawsuit. Say State Usurped Their Rights


Big day. HUUUGE. You will not want to miss today's Zoom @ Noon.

Today, Attorney Erick Kaardal and 11 state legislator plaintiffs are announcing a major federal election-related lawsuit. The claim, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan, alleges election officials violated state legislators’ rights to regulate the times, places and manner of elections, as required by the U.S. Constitution. The claim is also a civil rights case.

“Michigan state election officials committed horrible violations of state legislators’ federal rights in 2018 and 2022, and continue to do so,” Kaardal declared during a press conference webinar announcing the suit. “Now, the Michigan Constitution contains federal elections regulations that are monuments to civil rights violations. We will need help from the federal courts to clean up the mess that the election officials created.”

Join the call today as Representative James DeSana, a plaintiff, shares information about the suit.

“A lot of money was spent to deceive people,” Lindsey said. “Now these unlawfully enacted changes purport to limit our power as legislators to fix serious issues with our elections. Today I stand with fellow legislators to challenge that notion.”
