    David A. Kallman (P34200)
    Attorney for Plaintiffs
    NOW COMES the above-named Plaintiffs, CHERYL A. COSTANTINO AND EDWARD P.
    MCCALL, JR. (hereinafter “Plaintiff”), by and through their attorneys, GREAT LAKES JUSTICE
    CENTER, and for their Complaint hereby states as follows:
    1. The election was held on November 3, 2020 and approximately 850,000 votes were
    Great Lakes Justice Center
    reported as cast in Wayne County, Michigan.
    2. Plaintiff brings this action to raise numerous issues of fraud and misconduct that
    occurred in order to protect the rights of all voters in Michigan, especially Wayne County.
    3. In summary, this Complaint raises numerous instances of fraud, including, but not
    limited to:
    a. Defendants systematically processed and counted ballots from voters whose name
    failed to appear in either the Qualified Voter File (QVF) or in the supplemental
    sheets. When a voter’s name could not be found, the election worker assigned the
    ballot to a random name already in the QVF to a person who had not voted.
    b. Defendants instructed election workers to not verify signatures on absentee ballots,
    to backdate absentee ballots, and to process such ballots regardless of their validity.
    c. After election officials announced the last absentee ballots had been received,
    another batch of unsecured and unsealed ballots, without envelopes, arrived in trays
    at the TCF Center. There were tens of thousands of these absentee ballots, and
    apparently every ballot was counted and attributed only to Democratic candidates.
    d. Defendants instructed election workers to process ballots that appeared after the
    election deadline and to falsely report that those ballots had been received prior to
    November 3, 2020 deadline.
    e. Defendants systematically used false information to process ballots, such as using
    incorrect or false birthdays. Many times, the election workers inserted new names
    into the QVF after the election and recorded these new voters as having a birthdate
    of 1/1/1900.
    f. On a daily basis leading up to the election, City of Detroit election workers and
    Great Lakes Justice Center
    employees coached voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat party. These
    workers and employees encouraged voters to do a straight Democrat ballot. These
    election workers and employees went over to the voting booths with voters in order
    to watch them vote and coach them for whom to vote.
    g. Unsecured ballots arrived at the TCF Center loading garage, not in sealed ballot
    boxes, without any chain of custody, and without envelopes.
    h. Defendant election officials and workers refused to record challenges to their
    processes and removed challengers from the site if they politely voiced a challenge.
    i. After poll challengers started discovering the fraud taking place at the TCF Center,
    Defendant election officials and workers locked credentialed challengers out of the
    counting room so they could not observe the process, during which time tens of
    thousands of ballots were processed.
    j. Defendant election officials and workers allowed ballots to be duplicated by hand
    without allowing poll challengers to check if the duplication was accurate. In fact,
    election officials and workers repeatedly obstructed poll challengers from
    observing. Defendants permitted thousands of ballots to be filled out by hand and
    duplicated on site without oversight from poll challengers.
    4. Plaintiff Cheryl A. Costantino is a resident of Wayne County, voted in the
    November 3, 2020 election, and was a poll challenger.
    5. Plaintiff Edward P. McCall, Jr. is a resident of Wayne County, voted in the
    November 3, 2020 election, and was a poll challenger.
    6. Defendant City of Detroit is a municipality located in Wayne County tasked with
    Great Lakes Justice Center
    the obligation to hold all elections in a fair and legal manner.
    7. Defendant Election Commission is a department of the City of Detroit.
    8. Janice M. Winfrey, in her official capacity, is Clerk of the Defendant City of Detroit
    and the Chairman of the Defendant Detroit City Election Commission and is the city official who
    oversees and supervises all elections in the City of Detroit.
    9. Cathy M. Garrett, in her official capacity, is the Clerk of Defendant Wayne County,
    and is the county official who oversees and supervises all elections in Wayne County.
    10. Defendant Wayne County Board of Canvassers is the appointed body that is
    responsible for canvassing the votes cast within the county they serve. The Board members certify
    elections for all local, countywide and district offices which are contained entirely within the
    county they serve.
    11. This action is properly filed in Wayne County Circuit Court pursuant to MCR
    3.306(A)(2), Mich. Const. art. 2, sec. 4, par. 1(h), MCL 600.4545, and MCL 600.605. Venue is
    proper pursuant to MCR 3.306(D).
    12. Wayne County used the TCF Center in downtown Detroit to consolidate, collect,
    and tabulate all of the ballots for the County.
    13. The TCF Center was the only facility within Wayne County authorized to count the
    Forging Ballots on the Qualified Voter List
    14. An attorney and former Michigan Assistant Attorney General was a certified poll
    challenger at the TCF Center (Exhibit A – Affidavit of Zachary Larsen).
    15. As Mr. Larsen watched the process, he was concerned that ballots were being
    Great Lakes Justice Center
    processed without confirmation that the voter was an eligible voter in the poll book because of
    information he had received from other poll challengers (Exhibit A).
    16. Mr. Larsen reviewed the running list of scanned in ballots in the computer system,
    where it appeared that the voter had already been counted as having voted. An official operating
    the computer then appeared to assign this ballot to a different voter as he observed a completely
    different name that was added to the list of voters at the bottom of a running tab of processed
    ballots on the right side of the screen (Exhibit A).
    17. Mr. Larsen was concerned that this practice of assigning names and numbers
    indicated that a ballot was being counted for a non-eligible voter who was not in either the poll
    book or the supplemental poll book. From his observation of the computer screen, the voters were
    not in the official poll book. Moreover, this appeared to be the case for the majority of the voters
    whose ballots he personally observed being scanned (Exhibit A).
    18. Because of Mr. Larsen’s concern, he stepped behind the table and walked over to a
    spot behind where the first official was conducting her work. Understanding health concerns due
    to COVID-19, he attempted to stand as far away from this official as he reasonably could while
    also being able to visually observe the names on the supplemental poll book and on the envelopes
    (Exhibit A).
    19. As soon as Mr. Larsen moved to a location where he could observe the process by
    which the first official at this table was confirming the eligibility of the voters to vote, the first
    official immediately stopped working and glared at him. He stood still until she began to loudly
    and aggressively tell him that he could not stand where he was standing. She indicated that he
    needed to remain in front of the computer screen where he could not see what the worker was
    doing (Exhibit A).
    Great Lakes Justice Center
    20. Both officials then began to tell Mr. Larsen that because of COVID, he needed to
    be six feet away from the table. He responded that he could not see and read the supplemental poll
    book from six feet away, and that he was attempting to keep his distance to the extent possible
    (Exhibit A).
    21. Just minutes before at another table, a supervisor had explained that the rules
    allowed Mr. Larsen to visually observe what he needed to see and then step back away. Likewise,
    on Election Day, he had been allowed to stand at equivalent distance from poll books in Lansing
    and East Lansing precincts without any problem. With this understanding, he remained in a
    position to observe the supplemental poll book (Exhibit A).
    22. Both officials indicated that Mr. Larsen could not remain in a position that would
    allow him to observe their activities; the officials indicated they were going to get their supervisor
    (Exhibit A).
    23. When the supervisor arrived, she reiterated that Mr. Larsen was not allowed to stand
    behind the official with the supplemental poll book, and he needed to stand in front of the computer
    screen. Mr. Larsen told her that was not true, and that he was statutorily allowed to observe the
    process, including the poll book (Exhibit A).
    24. The supervisor then pivoted to arguing that Mr. Larsen was not six feet away from
    the first official. Mr. Larsen told her that he was attempting to remain as far away as he could while
    still being able to read the names on the poll book (Exhibit A).
    25. The supervisor then stood next to the chair immediately to the left of the first
    official and indicated that Mr. Larsen was “not six feet away from” the supervisor and that she
    intended to sit in the chair next to the official with the poll book, so he would need to leave (Exhibit
    Great Lakes Justice Center
    26. This supervisor had not been at the table at any time during the process, and she
    had responsibility for numerous ACVBs. Further, the supervisor’s choice of chairs was
    approximately three feet to the left of the first official and therefore in violation of the six-foot
    distance rule (Exhibit A).
    27. Accordingly, Mr. Larsen understood that this was a ruse to keep him away from a
    place where he could observe the confirmation of names in the supplemental poll book. The
    supervisor began to repeatedly tell him that he “needed to leave” so he responded that he would
    go speak with someone else and fill out a challenge form (Exhibit A).
    28. After Mr. Larsen observed and uncovered the fraud that was taking place and had
    the confrontation with the supervisor, he left the counting room to consult with another attorney
    about the matter around 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Exhibit A).
    29. It was at this point that election officials stopped permitting any further poll
    challengers to enter the counting room, including Mr. Larsen (Exhibit A).
    30. Election officials never allowed Mr. Larsen to re-enter the counting room to fulfill
    his duties as a poll challenger after he had discovered the fraud which was taking place.
    Illegal Voter Coaching and Identification Issues
    31. An election employee with the City of Detroit was working at a polling location for
    approximately three weeks prior to the election. This City of Detroit employee directly observed,
    on a daily basis, other City of Detroit election workers and employees coaching voters to vote for
    Joe Biden and the Democrat party. This employee witnessed these workers and employees
    encouraging voters to do a straight Democrat ballot and witnessed these election workers and
    employees going over to the voting booths with voters in order to watch them vote and coach them
    for whom to vote (Exhibit B – Affidavit of Jessy Jacob).
    Great Lakes Justice Center
    32. During the last two weeks while this same employee was working at the polling
    location, she was specifically instructed by her supervisor never to ask for a driver’s license or any
    photo I.D. when a person was trying to vote (Exhibit B).
    Changing Dates on Ballots
    33. All absentee ballots that existed were required to be inputted into the QVF system
    by 9:00 p.m. on November 3, 2020. This was required to be done in order to have a final list of
    absentee voters who returned their ballots prior to 8:00 p.m. on November 3, 2020. In order to
    have enough time to process the absentee ballots, all polling locations were instructed to collect
    the absentee ballots from the drop-box once every hour on November 3, 2020 (Exhibit B).
    34. On November 4, 2020, a City of Detroit election worker was instructed to
    improperly pre-date the absentee ballots receive date that were not in the QVF as if they had been
    received on or before November 3, 2020. She was told to alter the information in the QVF to
    falsely show that the absentee ballots had been received in time to be valid. She estimates that this
    was done to thousands of ballots (Exhibit B).
    Illegal Double Voting
    35. The election employee observed a large number of people who came to the satellite
    location to vote in-person, but they had already applied for an absentee ballot. These people were
    allowed to vote in-person and were not required to return the mailed absentee ballot or sign an
    affidavit that the voter lost the mailed absentee ballot (Exhibit B).
    36. This would permit a person to vote in person and also send in his/her absentee
    37. Prior to the election, the Michigan Secretary of State sent ballot applications to
    deceased residents and to non-residents of the State of Michigan.
    Great Lakes Justice Center
    First Round of New Ballots
    38. At approximately 4:00 a.m. on November 4, 2020, tens of thousands of ballots were
    suddenly brought into the counting room through the back door (Exhibit C – Affidavit of Andrew
    39. These new ballots were brought to the TCF Center by vehicles with out-of-state
    license plates (Exhibit C).
    40. It was observed that all of these new ballots were cast for Joe Biden (Exhibit C).
    Second Round of New Ballots
    41. The ballot counters were required to check every ballot to confirm that the name on
    the ballot matched the name on the electronic poll list; this was the list of all persons who had
    registered to vote on or before November 1, 2020 and is often referred to as the QVF (Exhibit D –
    Affidavit of Bob Cushman)
    42. The ballot counters were also provided with Supplemental Sheets which had the
    names of all persons who had registered to vote on either November 2, 2020 or November 3, 2020
    (Exhibit C).
    43. The validation process for a ballot requires the name on the ballot to be matched
    with a registered voter on either the QVF or the Supplemental Sheets.
    44. At approximately 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, numerous boxes of
    ballots were brought to TCF Center (Exhibit D).
    45. Upon information and belief, the Wayne County Clerk’s office instructed the ballot
    counters to use the date of birth of January 1, 1900 on all of these newly appearing ballots.
    46. None of the names of these new ballots corresponded with any registered voter on

  3. Diane Harris says:

    On MSNBC, former Obama official Ben Rhodes said that Biden is already “having phone calls” with foreign leaders. LifeSiteNews states: “This is treason. They have no right to do this. Nothing has been certified. They are actively undermining our country’s sitting president.”

    LifeSiteNews adds: “To their eternal shame, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is also going along with this hoax. They sent a letter this past weekend congratulating Joe Biden on becoming the second “Catholic president” in American history. Perhaps they’ve forgotten, but Joe Biden has officiated several gay “marriages.” He’s also pledged to drag the Little Sisters of the Poor back to court and is fully in favor of the LGBT “Equality Act,” a bill that would threaten the religious liberty of Catholic schools across the country. Joe Biden’s certainly not a Catholic in good standing. Shame on our bishops for supporting this nonsense.”

    Citing psychological manipulation, LifeSiteNews further reports: “They want those of us on the political right to simply give up while making sure the left is so thoroughly convinced that Biden won, that, should things end up going in Trump’s direction later on, they’ll be so furious that they’ll go out and riot with Antifa and Black Lives Matter and burn the country down. The Democrat strategy all along has been to create such a massive amount of chaos and fraud that it’d be impossible to trace and then to get the media and Big Tech to ignore and censor those exposing it. They wanted, quite simply, to break the system.
