A lawyer for Detroit slammed a Michigan state court lawsuit alleging widespread voter fraud in the city as an “absurdity” hours after President Donald Trump’s campaign filed a separate federal suit making roughly the same claims.

President-elect Joe Biden has been declared the winner of Michigan, with a roughly 146,000-vote margin over Trump, who has refused to concede the election and claims he was the victim of voter fraud in the Democratic-leaning cities of several battleground states.
