Black Detroit voters sue Trump campaign over effort to invalidate election results

A group of Black voters in Detroit announced they are suing President Donald Trump and his campaign, alleging the targeted effort to overturn the election repeats one of the “worst abuses in our nation’s history” by attempting to disenfranchise African American voters.

Specifically, the suit takes issue with the campaign’s effort to overturn the results of the election in Michigan by blocking the certification of results in Wayne County, home to Detroit, and attempting to “intimidate” and “coerce” state and local officials into replacing electors.

“Central to this strategy is disenfranchising voters in predominately Black cities,” the suit alleges. “Repeating false claims of voter fraud, which have been thoroughly debunked, Defendants are pressuring state and local officials in Michigan not to count votes from Wayne County, Michigan (where Detroit is the county seat), and thereby disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters.”
