NextImg:One of the Michigan fake electors claimed she was 'duped' by Trump lawyer

One of the 16 people indicted in Michigan for acting as a fake elector for former President Donald Trump claimed she was “duped” by a lawyer for the former president.

In an interview with WDIV, a local news station in Michigan, Michele Lundgren, a 73-year-old photographer from Detroit, volunteered to be a Trump delegate and elector had he ended up winning the state, but she ended up becoming a fake Trump elector and now faces up to 80 years in prison.

She said she received a call in December asking her to come to the state Republican Party headquarters, where she would allegedly sign a certificate swearing Trump had won the election. But, she claims that everyone was asked to sign a notecard as a way to sign into the meeting, and then that signature was lifted and placed on the document in question.

“We signed a sign-in sheet with our names. It fits right into the real electoral ballot,” she said.

She said the lawyer who told them to walk to the capitol was Ian Northon, who “duped” her into thinking she was doing the right thing.

“I was an innocent little bystander in this whole thing, thinking I was doing my civic duty,” Lundgren said.

But, the Democratic Michigan Attorney General, Dana Nessel, claims her office has proof that the 16 electors knew what they were doing and purposely signed on as fake electors in an effort to undermine democracy and anoint Trump as the winner of Michigan.

“The false electors’ actions undermined the public’s faith in the integrity of our elections and, we believe, also plainly violated the laws by which we administer our elections in Michigan,” Nessel said in a statement.
