Michigan AG, Dana Nessel Asks Public To Stop Making Rude Sharpie Requests
This election season has gotten so far out of hand that our Attorney General had to ask people to stop telling workers to shove sharpies up their butts.
You read that correctly, Dana Nessel actually had to tweet a request to the general public about rude comments. The comments are stemming from a made up conspiracy theory about the election involving sharpies. The made up conspiracy has lead to people telling Michigan election workers to shove their sharpies up their butts. . . seriously.
I don't want to give too much attention to #SharpieGate but the short story is that Trump supporters thought they were being tricked by election workers handing out sharpies to fill out their ballot. They were worried that the ballots would not count, but it's been shown repeatedly that the ballots were counted with no issue.
The problem has gotten so wide spread that FB and Twitter have had to flag the sharpiegate content as a disinformation campaign.
The crazy part is that the sharpie lie was based in Arizona, but apparently Michigan Trump supporters decided to ignore all of that. They decided to ignore the fact that the conspiracy theory is not true. Then they ignored the fact that Michigan had nothing to do with it at all.
Instead of relying on any factual information, they have decided to start telling Michigan election workers and officials to shove sharpies up their butts. I feel like this might be the most juvenile thing of the election season so far, and that's saying a lot.
