The Michigan House election integrity panel witness who evoked comparisons to Marisa Tomei’s character in My Cousin Vinny, is now running for statewide office.
“Melissa Carone, an IT worker, testified before a Michigan House panel in early December that she had seen electoral fraud take place.
“A Wayne County judge found her allegations “simply are not credible,” The Washington Post reported.
“In an interview with Deadline Detroit last week, Carone said she intends to run for the seat representing Michigan’s 46th District, which covers much of Oakland County in the Detroit suburbs.
This is how change is made. Carone testified that she witnessed election fraud firsthand and signed a sworn affidavit to the same. When the election challenges failed, Carone chose not to retreat and be a part of the solution, rather than accept the status quo. Carone explained her goals in running for elected office,
” ‘My ultimate goal is to get our ballots hand-counted and clean out Lansing just like draining the swamp in D.C. because that’s what we need,’ she told the outlet.
” ‘Everyone that knows me knows that I’m not a dangerous individual and that I’m totally against violence,’ she continued, when asked about the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
” ‘What’s dangerous is somebody stealing the election,’ she said.”
Here is an except of the testimony that broke the internet:
