Stanley Grot, the clerk of a suburban Detroit township who was among several “false electors” indicted last month for allegedly trying to subvert Michigan’s 2020 presidential vote, faced a harsh public reception Tuesday from several local residents calling for him to resign or face removal from his job, if even by a recall campaign.
Grot, whose job as clerk means he also sits on the board, was called out by some of his constituents on the state’s allegations that he was trying to to help throw a presidential election.
Representatives from voting rights organizations, like All Voting Is Local and Voters Not Politicians, also attended Tuesday’s meeting and presented a letter to the board asking the trustees to formally seek Grot’s resignation.
Syma Echeandia said the best thing for the community is for Grot to resign.
“He has committed a crime, and we’re not stupid,” Echeandia said at the meeting. “He has attempted to defraud voters of Michigan, not just Shelby Township but the entire state. I understand the law, you can’t have him eliminated here. I understand that we have to do a recall. If the man has any grace whatsoever he would step down and he would avoid all this angst and aggravation that we have to put up with.”
