( – In Michigan, Democrats are calling for an official investigation on whether or not the Republican Senate candidates had forged signatures that were on a petition. 

The Michigan Democratic Party along with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee sent out a letter in which they were calling for an official probe to be launched in order to determine whether the Republican candidates or any other person who was no longer in the race had forged signatures on the nominating petitions. 

Specifically, they called for an “initial review” into the petitions of former Republican Reps. Peter Meijer, Sandy Pensler, Justin Amash and Mike Rogers.

In a statement Michigan Democratic Party Chairwoman Lavore Barnes argued that the fraud had been uncovered and it was necessary for them to have an immediate investigation. She called for the Michigan Bureau of Elections to uphold its responsibility to ensure that the state’s elections are held with integrity, and asked them to fully look into the matter. 

Pensler’s adviser slammed the request arguing that the Democrats could not beat Republicans at the ballot box, which is why they appeared to be working towards completely eliminating the GOP. 

Rogers, who has been endorsed by former President Donald  Trump, is believed to be the Republican frontrunner in the Senate race. Roger’s communications director gave The Hill a statement in which he referred to the call for an investigation as an “antidemocratic stunt.” He added that Rep. Elissa Slotkin had argued that she could not win with President Biden on the ticket and that previously she had claimed that she would never run against Rogers which is why her campaign has resorted to calling for this investigation.
