Michigan Closes Legislative Offices Due to Threat Against Electoral College

It is sad that it has come to this.

On Monday, the electoral college casts their ballots, officiallyin this tumultuous 2020 election.  There is little doubt that the end result of this process will show Joe Biden with more than the 270 votes needed to ascend to the presidency – at least according to the mainstream media.

Now, given that our nation has been swiftly devolving into a political morass of violence and vitriol, there were fears that this time-honored electoral process could come under attack.  Sadly, this reality had forced the Michigan legislature to conduct their business while sequestered away, far from the torches and pitchforks.

Michigan state legislative offices will be closed on Monday due to safety concerns as the members of the Electoral College are set to cast their official votes in the state Capital for President-elect Joe Biden.

The decision to close came after a recommendation from law enforcement, which was prompted by “credible threats of violence.”

“Due to safety and security concerns, the Senate and all Senate spaces in downtown Lansing will be closed Monday, December 14,” the Senate notification said, according to The Detroit News.

This was no stunt, either.

Amber McCann, a spokesperson for Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey (R-MI), clarified that there are no expected protests expected outside the Capitol itself.

“The Senate has closed its own workspaces tomorrow based upon recommendations from law enforcement. The decision was not made because of anticipated protests, but was made based on credible threats of violence,” McCann said. “Senate leadership does not have the authority to close the Capitol. That decision is made by the Capitol Commission.”

President Trump has consistently proclaimed himself the winner of the 2020 election, despite the Associated Press having called the contest for Joe Biden on November 7th.
