( – Dana Nessel, Michigan’s Attorney General, on Tuesday filed felony charges against 16 individuals over their attempt to act as “false electors” during the 2020 presidential election.

The 16 Republicans are going to face eight criminal charges whose sentences range between five and 14 years in prison each if they are found guilty. The group is made up of many Republicans including the Michigan Republican Party former co-chair Meshawn Maddock, the Republican National Committee’s chapter in Michigan head, Kathy Berden, and Shelby Township Clerk Stan Grot.

Nessel in a statement noted that the false electors had attempted to undermine the integrity of the presidential election, and had also violated the laws that are determining the Michigan election procedures.

According to the suit, the group had met at the Michigan Republican Party headquarters and had signed their name on a number of certificates in order to attempt to pass as Trump’s qualified electors. These false documents were then allegedly taken to the National Archives and Congress.

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson stated that while there were attempts for justice to be served against those who tried to subvert the people’s will, the nation’s democracy was still being threatened by those who were trying to weaken it. Benson argued that in preparation of the 2024 presidential election, these charges are going to be the first step in their ongoing efforts to ensure that a similar incident does not occur again.

False Electoral College certificates were submitted in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Mexico, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, all of which declared former President Donald Trump as the winner in the state.
