Rep. Williams stated:
“Election integrity should be an issue that both political parties care about, and the Legislative Audit Committee’s bi-partisan membership should welcome any testimony from Ms. Ellis as they work to root out all election fraud, hold accountable any wrongdoing, and strengthen our election system moving forward.”

“The written testimony will also serve to dispel misinformation that has been propagated by various sources both leading up to and after the 2020 General Election,” officials stated.
The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday.
Earlier this month, Ellis was in Lansing, Michigan, for a highly unusual 4 1/2-hour legislative hearing in which Rudy Giuliani pushed Republican lawmakers to ignore the certification of Joe Biden’s Michigan victory and appoint electors for Trump.
Giuliani did not wear a mask, nor did Ellis, who was sitting next to him. Giuliani and Ellis both tested positive for the coronavirus a few days later.MORE NEWS: Douglas County Schools To Bring Middle & High School Students Back After Spring Break
