Tom Barrow claims major election fraud going on

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

A state Board of Canvassers has voted 4-0 for Michigan elections officials to begin tabulating about 18,000 write-in ballots from Detroit's mayoral primary.

But defeated mayoral candidate Tom Barrow says thousands of those write-in ballots are all in the same handwriting. He says volunteers from his campaign saw the signatures, and noticed the similarities.

"Right now we're being subjected to massive voter fraud, and the public doesn't know they're walking around like everything is fine - and folks it is not," Barrow tells Fox 2's Randy Wimbley.

Even setting the signatures aside, Barrow has more beef to pick with the Duggan campaign.

"Hundreds and hundreds of challengers in the precinct from the Duggan campaign were there, under the credentials of Citizens for a Fair Election. Citizens for Fair Elections is controlled by me, my brother. We never issued them a single credential," says Barrow.

Melvin Butch Hollowell, lawyer for Mike Duggan's campaign, flatly denies the allegations. He says Duggan got  his 44,000 votes fair and square.

Barrow is calling on the Wayne County Prosecutor and the Attorney General to investigate.
