    I shared this story because it shows pretty clearly why Republicans who will be running for office are reluctant to oppose Trump. It seems like these tactics don't depend on his being in office, so it's likely they will continue until his fans stop paying attention.

    But it also shows that there are some Republican officials willing to stand up to him when it's literally their job. (Will they last?)

    Contrast with what happened in Wayne county, where it seems like they did certify results, but with an attempted smokescreen and misdirection to throw off Trump supporters who won't like it.
