Jane Li wants legislators to address the election fraud she alleges took place this past election.

Holding a “Make America Great Again” flag, Amy, of Oakland County stood with hundreds of Trump supporters at the Capitol Building in Lansing. 

She didn't want to give her last name, but said she's protesting the election fraud she suspects took place in Michigan. 

“We are here to continue the fight. We believe in President Trump. He’s had our back for four years. We are here to show our support for him.” 


Other protesters like Julie Henkel and her husband Nathan were there calling on legislators to investigate voter fraud allegations.


Protesters allege -- without evidence -- that election irregularities like the illegal counting of absentee ballots in Detroit took place. Those allegations are disputed by officials, including Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. Several Trump campaign lawsuits have been thrown out in Michigan and other battleground states.
