Republicans in Wayne County Caved in, Certified Results After Being Called “Racist” By Pro-Antifa Poll Watcher Republicans in Wayne County, Michigan reversed their decision to not certify the presidential election results after they were lectured by a pro-Antifa poll watcher and called racist. Monica Palmer and William Hartmann, who make up two of the four-person Wayne County Board of Canvassers, sparked controversy when they initially refused to sign off on their district’s ballot count which handed Joe Biden victory. This prompted poll watcher and local businessman Ned Staebler to accuse the pair of basically being on a par with Nazis.
