Republican candidate for Attorney General Matthew DePerno is being investigated for possible tampering with voting machines in the wake of the 2020 election.

A state investigation has already “revealed that DePerno, state Rep. Daire Rendon, and seven others ‘orchestrated a coordinated plan to gain access to voting machines.’” Michigan Chief Deputy Attorney General Christina Grossi said that DePerno and others gained unauthorized access to machines in Roscommon County, Richfield Township, Lake Township and Irving Township.

The current Attorney General, Democrat Dana Nessel, has said the 2020 election results reflect the “legitimate vote of millions of people in the state of Michigan.”

An investigation by the Republican-led Senate Oversight Committee concurred with Nessel’s conclusion. It spent considerable time debunking DePerno’s voter fraud claims and found that “citizens should be confident the results represent the true results of the ballots cast by the people of Michigan.” It also asked for a criminal investigation into “those who have been utilizing misleading and false information about Antrim County to raise money or publicity for their own ends.”

Observers say this was clearly pointing the finger at DePerno—and likely launched the initial probe—given that the attorney filed an election lawsuit in Antrim County that was rejected by a Republican-appointed judge and raised more than $300,000 for an “election fraud defense fund.”

DePerno is backed by Donald Trump, who lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden in Michigan by 154,000 votes, but continues to falsely claim the election results were illegitimate.
