A pivotal election certification in a Michigan county has been reversed after two members on the Board of Canvassers changed their votes, again, after alleging they were bullied and threatened to give in despite concerns.
The two board members, William Hartmann and Monica Palmer, are Republicans while the other two members are Democrats.
Hartmann and Palmer made national headlines earlier this week after refusing to certify the election results, citing problems with vote totals, only to give in after they were accused of racism and their families were allegedly threatened.
In an exclusive Thursday story, Just the News reporter John Solomon reported the two GOP members jumped back to their original objections, and both signed affidavits alleging they were bullied and pushed to approve election results.
"The Wayne County election had serious process flaws which deserve investigation," Palmer wrote in her affidavit. "I continue to ask for information to assure Wayne County voters that these elections were conducted fairly and accurately."
OneNewsNow learned this week, from an August news story, that the Wayne County Board of Canvassers expressed concerns to the state Secretary of State about absentee ballots during a primary election. In that story the Detroit News reported:
Recorded ballot counts in 72% of Detroit's absentee voting precincts didn't match the number of ballots cast, spurring officials in Michigan's largest county to ask the state to investigate ahead of a pivotal presidential election.

A pro-family activist says Americans must know what is at stake if the Biden/Harris ticket occupies the White House.
On Tuesday the two Republicans on the Wayne County Michigan Board of Canvassers reversed their decision to challenge the election certification and allowed the process to move forward.
Jenna Ellis, a senior advisor to the Trump 2020 campaign, tells Fox News that the two Republicans only did so after facing threats and allegations of racism.
In response, Sandy Rios, director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, expressed on her "Sandy Rios in the Morning" program her belief that the two officials were browbeaten into changing their minds, even though there were apparent discrepancies.
According to Politico, Democrats "lashed out" at the two Republicans who were concerned about "mismatches" between votes submitted and the final canvass.
"The people in Michigan are just … regular people who are trying to help, trying to do their duty as Americans and as citizens of Michigan," Rios commented to her audience. "They were threatened with words, and they withdrew. So I find that regular citizens are being threatened, and, of course, many people are buckling; others are not. But it's easier to buckle."
In an affidavit signed by Monica Palmer, she wrote:
After the vote, my Democratic colleagues chided me and Mr. Hartmann for voting not to certify. After the vote, the public comment period began and dozens of people made personal remarks against me and Mr. Hartmann. The comments made accusations of racism and threatened me and members of my family.
Rios warns that there will be no safe harbor if Biden/Harris are allowed to come to power.
"Totalitarianism doesn't work that way," she continues. "It seeks people out and demands. You will either have to officially declare positive feelings, support for things that you detest, or you will suffer the consequences."
That could be in the form of audits from the IRS and/or the loss of a job or retirement.
