Threats Close MI Capitol Ahead Of Electoral Vote

The Washington Post reports:

“Credible threats of violence” ahead of the state’s electoral college vote Monday — a pivotal step in cementing the swing state’s votes for President-elect Joe Biden — have forced Michigan’s top lawmakers to close all legislative offices in Lansing.

Gideon D’Assandro, a spokesperson for state House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R), confirmed on Sunday to The Washington Post that Michigan House and Senate leadership consulted with the state police regarding the threats.

The state Capitol, where the vote is set to take place, was already set to be closed to the public Monday.
