AG Nessel seeks special prosecutor in compromised voting machine investigation

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Attorney General's office is asking that a special prosecutor investigate whether the Republican candidate for state attorney general and others should be charged in connection with an effort to gain access to voting machines after the 2020 election.

The Detroit News first reported that Attorney General Dana Nessel's office has petitioned the Michigan Prosecuting Attorneys Coordinating Council to appoint a special prosecutor to consider charges against nine people.

Documents show those nine people include Republican attorney general candidate Matt DePerno, Rep. Daire Rendon, and Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf.

DePerno's campaign issued a statement about the investigation.
