Dominion: Ex-Michigan state senator 'sowing discord in our democracy' with election fraud claims

Dominion Voting Systems has sent a cease-and-desist letter to a former Michigan state senator who the company says is making false claims about its products and the 2020 election to drive donations to his personal business.

The letter, which was obtained by the Detroit News, demands that former state Sen. Patrick Colbeck (R) stop spreading “lies” about Dominion, including his claims that Dominion machines were used to falsify votes for President Biden in the state. Biden won Michigan in November, four years after the state narrowly went for former President Trump in 2016.

“You are knowingly sowing discord in our democracy, all the while soliciting exorbitant amounts of money — totaling over $1 million so far — from your audiences paid directly to your personal business,” reads Dominion’s letter.

“If foreign countries, hackers, Democrats, space aliens, or anyone else had hacked into the Dominion machines in Antrim County and manipulated the vote tallies in those machines, then the machine tallies would not match the votes on the paper ballots in the possession of the Republican county officials,” it continued. “In fact, they do match, as confirmed by a hand recount of the paper ballots.”

Colbeck testified before the state Senate Oversight Committee in December that he had evidence showing voter fraud occurred in Michigan, the News noted, a claim that has been debunked by federal officials including former Attorney General William Barr.
