Michigan Takes Action Against Fake Electors

16 persons have been charged with forgery and other offences for pretending to be Michigan's 2020 Trump electors.

The charges were announced by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat.

The fake electors met in December 2020 and signed certificates falsely claiming that Trump had won Michigan.

Trump supporters tried to reverse the election using the certificates, but Congress never received them.

The charges against the fake electors are the first of their kind in the United States.

The charges could have serious implications for the defendants, who could face prison time if convicted.

The allegations also advance the fight to bring individuals who tried to overthrow the 2020 election responsible.

The House Select Committee probing the January 6th Capitol assault is also investigating the Trump campaign's use of phony electors to reverse the election.
