Michigan Charges 16 in False Elector Scheme to Overturn Trump’s 2020 Loss

The Michigan attorney general announced felony charges on Tuesday against 16 people in a case involving Trump supporters’ attempt to overturn the 2020 election results in the state by convening a false slate of Electoral College electors.

Each of the 16 defendants has been charged with eight felony counts, including forgery and conspiracy to commit forgery, for allegedly signing documents attesting falsely that they were Michigan’s “duly elected and qualified electors” for president and vice president.

Those charged included Meshawn Maddock, 55, who was the co-chair of the Michigan Republican Party at the time. Ms. Maddock, who has close ties to former President Donald J. Trump and is the wife of a state representative, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
