A report issued today by Republican-led state Senate committee says last year’s election was valid and accurate.

The report debunks claims of fraud and misconduct leveled by supporters of former President Donald Trump. Senator Ed McBroom chairs the Senate Oversight Committee.

“I believe that the outcome, the count at the end is accurately reflecting the ballots cast in Michigan.”

The report says people who pushed false claims should be held to account. But it also calls for new laws to expand voter I-D requirements, among other things. And Governor Gretchen Whitmer says that’s a non-starter with her.

“I don’t think it makes a lot of sense to fix something that ain’t broke.”

But that’s not stopping the Legislature from moving ahead with the bills, so the report may settle the past without quelling the controversy.
