"I'm very pleased the Oakland County Circuit Court has acted on my petition to impanel a one man grand jury.  It is a very powerful investigative tool that is now available to assist Sheriff Michael Bouchard and Prosecutor Jessica Cooper in uncovering allegations of election fraud."

"At this juncture in the proceedings, I have no further official involvement.  The investigation is in the hands of Judge Edward Sosnick who was appointed as the one man grand juror.  The law requires that grand jury proceedings remain secret.  Therefore, I will have no further comment."​
