Michigan Is Calling on the Feds to Investigate Trumpers Who Sent Forged Election Documents

Earlier this week the public got a look at forged documents that Republican groups in several states sent to the government declaring then-President Donald Trump the winner of their state’s electors. Now, the attorney general in one of those states is asking federal prosecutors to open a criminal investigation.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Thursday that her office had been considering whether to bring charges for about a year.

“Under state law, I think clearly you have forgery of a public record, which is a 14-year offense, and election law forgery, which is a five-year offense,” Nessel said. Ultimately, though, she opted to refer the case to the U.S. attorney in western Michigan, alleging a “coordinated effort” by Republicans in other states who tried to pull off the same fraudulent scheme. “Obviously this is part of a much bigger conspiracy,” she said.

The Michigan documents, obtained through a public records request by watchdog group American Oversight, show 16 Republicans claiming to be that state’s “duly elected and qualified” electors. In a brazen attempt to thwart the democratic process, each of the so-called electors cast their votes for Trump, who lost Michigan by 154,000 votes.

The forgeries in Michigan and at least four other states were cited in a post-election memo by conservative lawyer John Eastman, who argued that former Vice President Mike Pence could simply toss out legitimate electors in states that allegedly had a competing slate of electors. The forgeries were also referenced in a draft letter by former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark that encouraged Georgia state officials to appoint new electors to overturn that state’s election results.

The Jan. 6. committee, which is looking into Trump’s attempts influence election workers and public officials in key swing states to override the will of the voters, has received “thousands” of relevant records. It may make its findings public this spring, according to Politico.

Mariah the Scientist emerged into the music scene with her debut studio album in 2019 titled “Master.” The singer, who is signed to Tory Lanez’s One Umbrella record label, is most notable for her singles, “Not A Love Song,” “2 You,” “All for Me,” and “Always n Forever” featuring Lil Baby.

Recently, the Atlanta native sparked dating rumors with Young Thug after the SLAAT rapper cashed out on a new Porsche Taycan for the singer. The two were also spotted together at the Atlanta Falcons vs New England Patriots game.

The two really sent social media in a frenzy when footage of the two tying the knot surfaced on the internet, but later fans found out that the look was for a music video.

As Mariah the Scientist is making a name for herself, the singer wants people to know that she is not fitness model and adult actress, Brittany Renner.

While the two may look alike, the “Walked In” singer made a post to her Twitter clearing the air on her identity.

“I’m gone say this one time. Me and Brittany Renner r not the same person nor are we related,” she stated on Twitter with a laughing emoji.

I’m gone say this one time. Me and Britany Renner r not the same person nor are we related 😂

Even after trying to clear it up, some fans still pick with the singer and insinuate that the two are the same.

I never seen you 2 in the same place at the same time, so nice try Brittany. 😉

Halle Bailey gives viral TikTok song “Hrs and Hrs” by Muni Long a shot.

Chloe and Halle Bailey have been in the show biz for quite some time. The two talented sisters started making a name for themselves after posting various singing videos of themselves on Youtube.

From youtube to the big screen, the sisters add a new definition to putting respect on their name as they can now be seen in movies, TV shows, dropping albums, and becoming the proteges of Beyonce.

As of lately, the sisters have been showing their talents individually as Chloe Bailey blessed the 2021 VMA Awards with a performance of her single, “Have Mercy” and Halle Bailey has recently wrapped up the live-action version to Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

Before Chloe released her own single, fans were begging the star for solo music as she dropped covers of songs to her Instagram where she showcased her voice.

It looks as if Halle Bailey is showing off her talents too as she took to her social media yesterday to post a cover of her singing the viral TikTok song, “Hrs and Hrs” by Muni Long.

Although some social media users thought Halle gracefully covered the song, others criticized the singer, suggesting that she find a song that fits her voice instead.

Halle covering hrs and yall talking bout part of your world in the comments ! She a singer first y’all need to get to the back!

— Vannah🌹| Chlöe Is coming (@psavannahhh) January 19, 2022

Halle later addressed the controversy saying that she loves the song but “sang it an octave higher because it’s too low for me!” she stated. “Lol my sopranos can relate.”

To anyone that is saying that Halle Bailey’s cover of Hrs and Hrs is bad. You don’t know real talent. She was singing the song the way she seemed fit AND she was singing better then all of the people that are running there mouths.#Halle #HalleBailey #Amazing #talent

Taylor Swift Is the First Global Record Store Day Ambassador

Taylor Swift, who has long supported independent music shops and vinyl culture, will serve as Record Store Day Ambassador for this year’s event, set to take place on April 23. The artist is the event’s first global ambassador.

Over the years, the singer-songwriter has put out special releases for both RSD and RSD’s Black Friday events, and RSD organizers say that Swift’s Folklore, Evermore, Fearless (Taylor’s Version), and Red (Taylor’s Version) are consistently on indie store charts because of her commitment to putting out her albums on CD and LP formats.

“I’m very proud to be this year’s Global Ambassador for Record Store Day,” Swift said in a statement. “The places where we go to browse and explore and discover music new and old have always been sacred to me. Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion.

“They create settings for live events,” she continued. “They employ people who adore music thoroughly and purely. Those people and shops have had a rough few years and we need to support these small businesses more now than ever to make sure they can stay alive, stay eccentric, and stay individual. It’s been a true joy for me to watch vinyl sales grow in the past few years and we, the artists, have the fans to thank for this pleasant surprise. Happy Record Store Day, everyone! Stay safe out there.”

Swift quietly showed her commitment to independent retail in 2020, when pandemic lockdowns were endangering the futures of small businesses, by sending out signed copies of her albums to specific stores. She also threw financial support behind the scenes at the Nashville outpost Grimey’s New & Preloved Music, where she covered three months’ worth of health care costs for each employee.

“We’re thrilled to learn that Taylor Swift is our 2022 Record Store Day Ambassador!” Grimey’s Anna Lundy and Doyle Davis said. “Swift has shown her love and support for independent record stores by not only supporting our shop specifically during the dark, early days of the pandemic, when she directly donated to help us support our staff, but also by steering her eager, excited, and dedicated fans to independent record stores, places that many of them visited for the first time while in search of her signed CDs. As Swift has grown as an artist, we’ve watched her fans grow with her and have been delighted to see her taking control of her recordings and working with musicians like Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner, artists whose music has resonated in shops like ours for years. We can’t think of a better choice for RSD Ambassador for 2022!”

“The role of RSD Ambassador is, of course, something we take seriously in the sense that it helps us do our job of shining a light on these special places,” RSD co-founder Carrie Colliton said. “We’re pretty picky about the people we invite to ‘wear the sash,’ and we always want to make sure those Ambassadors genuinely love record stores and are creative about ways to celebrate them. But mostly it’s a title we want people to have fun with, and we know that our RSD 2022 Ambassador loves having fun, loves music, and loves record stores. For our 15th Record Store Day, we’re teaming up with a woman who does all that and just happens to be one of the biggest artists on the planet.”

Previous Record Store Day ambassadors include Ozzy Osbourne, Brandi Carlile, Iggy Pop, Jack White, Chuck D, Dave Grohl, Metallica, St. Vincent, Run the Jewels, and Pearl Jam, among others.
