    Oakland County GOP censures Senate Republicans behind election report


    Lansing — The Republican Party in Michigan’s second largest county has censured three GOP state senators who wrote a report recommending Attorney General Dana Nessel investigate those who pushed false claims about the 2020 election to benefit themselves.

    The Oakland County Republican Party’s executive committee approved the censure measure Thursday night, according to the party’s chairman, Rocky Raczkowski. He said the censure proposal focused on protecting people’s First Amendment rights.

    “We support the freedom of speech of any Republican, Democrat and independent,” the chairman said. “And that’s what this is about.”

    There has been a push among Michigan Republicans to publicly reprimand Sens. Ed McBroom, R-Vulcan, Lana Theis, R-Brighton, and John Bizon, R-Battle Creek, after their Senate Oversight Committee released a report in June, finding “no evidence of widespread or systematic fraud” in the 2020 election.

    The symbolic campaign is a sign of tensions within the party about former President Donald Trump’s loss and his ongoing assertions that the contest was “rigged.” The GOP in Macomb County, Michigan’s third largest county, approved its own censure resolution last week.
