Download this episode

In the third part of The Right Take’s investigative deep dive into voter fraud in the 2020 election, Jacob and Eric look at the state of Michigan. From bizarre machine glitches that swung entire county elections, to suspiciously boarded-up windows at polling stations in Detroit, they come to differing conclusions as to whether or not the presidential election – as well as the concurrent U.S. Senate election – was stolen from Republicans in the Great Lakes State.
