A conservative activist in Michigan who Rudy Giuliani called to testify during a hearing on election fraud says she is running for a local state House seat.
In an interview with Deadline Detroit last week, Mellissa Carone said she intends to run for the seat representing Michigan’s 46th District, which covers much of Oakland County in the Detroit suburbs.
“My ultimate goal is to get our ballots hand-counted and clean out Lansing just like draining the swamp in D.C. because that’s what we need,” she told the outlet.
Dominion responded by sending a cease and desist telling Carone to stop spreading misinformation. Attorneys for the company said she did not have access to any insider information in her role at TCF, but that she’d been hired for one day through a staffing agency “to clean glass on machines and complete other menial tasks.”
Carone became the subject of a flurry of negative media attention and a “Saturday Night Live” sketch after filing an affadavit in an election-fraud suit and appearing Dec. 2 as a witness for Rudy Giuliani during a House Oversight Committee hearing in Lansing.
