Matthew DePerno, who is representing plaintiff William Bailey in Bailey v. Antrim County, asked Elsenheimer to order Benson to produce correspondence between her and county election officials, the state Legislature, and Google, Amazon, Apple, and Facebook.
The case was brought after the November 2020 election. Bailey, an Antrim County voter, noted that the county initially said Democratic President-elect Joe Biden won the most votes, but later reported that President Donald Trump actually did. Officials claimed what happened was due to a human error, but a forensic audit of voting machines and software concluded the system was designed to lead to election fraud and argued the results in the county shouldn’t have been certified.
The Jan. 11 ruling against Benson was only possible because her office intervened in the case last month. It has since taken the lead in the defense.
“Remember Secretary of State Benson got into this case. She brought herself in, we didn’t ask her to come in. She intervened in this case and she intervened because she wanted to stop the release of a [forensic] report. That failed. Now she’s in the case. She’s a party defendant. And she didn’t want to produce documents,” DePerno told The Epoch Times. “The judge rightly saw through those objections and granted our motion to require that she produces the documentation to us. That was the real important part of the hearing.”
