President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and federal prosecutor Sidney Powell has yet again come under fire for making an error in the legal filing to claim election fraud. Her lawsuit claimed that there have been illegal ballots in Edison County, Michigan. However, unlike before it isn’t the spelling of the place that she’s got wrong or confused it with someplace else, but Powell has cited a case about a county in Michigan which doesn’t exist. 

Michigan political reporter Jonathan Oosting shared a screenshot of the alleged lawsuit in which Powell has cited a witness saying, “For example, in PA, President Trump’s lead of more than 700,000 county advantage was reduced to less than 300,000 in a few short hours, which does not occur in the real world without an external influence.” 

“I conclude that manually feeding more than 400,000 mostly absentee ballots cannot be accomplished in a short time frame (i.e., 2-3 hours) without illegal vote count alteration. In another case for Edison County, MI, Vice President Biden received more than 100% of the votes at 5:59 PM EST on November 4, 2020 and again he received 99.61% of the votes at 2:23 PM EST on November 5, 2020. These distributions are cause for concern and indicate fraud,” the filing states further. 

The journalist was quick to note that Edison County doesn’t exist. He wrote, “One of the witnesses in Sidney Powell’s new Michigan lawsuit says in a declaration he thinks there’s something fishy about election returns in Edison County, MI. Thing is, there is no Edison County in Michigan.”



 

 

Only a few days ago, Powell, promising to release the Kraken, garnered a lot of attention after her website displayed a lawsuit against the state of Georgia to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win in the state with spelling errors that couldn't go unnoticed. 

Bloomberg reported that the filing misspelled the word "district" twice and in two different ways. “In the Georgia complaint, which was only available on Powell’s website, the word district in the court name was misspelled twice on the first page of the document. First, there was an extra c for ‘DISTRICCT’ and then, a few words later, ‘DISTRCOICT.'" read the report. 

Powell's election fraud-related lawsuits in Georgia and Michigan came after the Trump campaign's legal team distanced itself from her, owing to the bizarre claims questioning the integrity of the presidential elections. Powell's latest lawsuit in Michigan backing Trump has once again put her in the spotlight as people have called her out for lying about a place that doesn't exist. 

One social media user tweeted, "FYI Edison County Michigan does not exist. You all buy nothing but lies" Another added saying, "As an example, this is just one affidavit. It claims voter fraud in Edison County, Michigan. There is no Edison County in Michigan. That is just one example, but it highlights the reason why we need solid evidence for such a serious claim. Affidavits are not that" One joked, "Sounds like there will be a movie released titled the Ballots of Edison County."
