The incident involving two Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers offers an instructive coarse in leftist morality—there is none. From Vasko Kohlmayer at lewrockwell.com:
A revealing incident took place in Wayne County, Michigan last week. What happened is highly instructive, because it exposes the left’s modus operandi. It is important that we learn from it and take measures to prevent its recurrence, because if we don’t, this country will fall into the hands of brutal leftist totalitarians.
In Wayne County two Republican members of the county’s Board of Canvassers, Monica Palmer and William Hartmann, initially refused to certify the results of the obviously fraud-ridden election. Wayne County, by the way, includes the city of Detroit which has been continuously controlled by corrupt Democrats since 1962. Not surprisingly, Detroit has been known to suffer from election irregularities for many years. In this election, among other concerns, around 70 percent of Wayne County precincts were found to be “out of balance,” which means that the number of ballots cast did not match the number of people who signed in to vote.
The refusal to certify this vote with its glaring irregularities made the two honest officials an immediate target of intimidation and blackmail. Within minutes of their decision, death threats began pouring in. “The [death] threats have been made against myself, my daughter and my husband,” Monica Palmer told Detroit Free Press. The threats that Monica Palmer referred to in this statement were conveyed to her privately. But there was more to come publicly so that the whole world could see just how brazen and vicious the American political left is.
