As national election results continue to come in President-Elect Joe Biden’s favor, Republicans across the U.S. have continued to dispute electoral votes in Biden’s favor. Recently in Michigan, Republican leaders of Michigan’s House and Senate have agreed to take a meeting with President Donald Trump amid this ongoing battle.
Between The Lines Newspaper Publishers Jan Stevenson and Susan Horowitz are now urging Michiganders to reach out to Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey via and Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield via email to urge them to stop the vote.
Read the template letter here:
To Michigan Senate Majority Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield
Please don’t go tomorrow to the White House. It is an obvious, shameful attempt to pressure you to do something dangerous and probably illegal. Don’t embarrass yourself and the people of Michigan.
Both Shirkey and Chatfield can be reached via email here: SenMShirkey@senate.michigan.gov, LeeChatfield@house.mi.gov.
