Questions Mounting as Reuters Reveals Matt DePerno’s Involvement in Voting-System Breach

August 8, 2022

Washington, DC — A major news story landed last night as Reuters revealed new information about Michigan Attorney General GOP nominee Matt DePerno’s conduct with so-called “audits” of the 2020 presidential election. DePerno has been a vocal advocate and leader of the efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Michigan. This development is the latest instance of major questions being raised about DePerno’s conduct during and after the 2020 presidential election. It is another crystal clear demonstration of why he is wildly unfit to be Michigan’s Attorney General.

Here is what major outlets are saying in the last 24 hours about DePerno’s efforts to attack American democracy:

“The Republican nominee for Michigan attorney general led a team that gained unauthorized access to voting equipment while hunting for evidence to support former President Donald Trump’s false election-fraud claims, according to a Reuters analysis of court filings and public records.” – Reuters

“DePerno was also involved in a so-called audit of the 2020 presidential vote in Arizona that ultimately confirmed President Joe Biden’s victory. During the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, he met with a top Trump official at the State Department to discuss “how the election was stolen. Trump, in return, has showered DePerno with his support. He endorsed his attorney general campaign nearly a year ago. In March, he held a fundraiser for DePerno at his Mar-a-Lago residence and stumped for him in Michigan a month later.” – POLITICO

“There’s no question that attorney Matthew DePerno tried to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Michigan.” – The Washington Post
