Well not this guy's heart. I LOVE stories like these, because of the perfect kicker in bold at the end!...


William Hartmann, one of two Republican election officials from Michigan who initially refused to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election in Wayne County, where Joseph R. Biden Jr. had trounced Donald J. Trump, died on Nov. 30 at a hospital in Wyandotte, Mich., near Detroit. He was 63.
About two weeks before his death, which was confirmed by the Michigan Republican Party, his sister, Elizabeth Hartmann, wrote on Facebook that Mr. Hartmann was “in ICU with Covid pneumonia and currently on a ventilator.” He had been outspoken in his opposition to Covid vaccines.
Mr. Hartmann drew national attention after he and another Republican member of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, Monica Palmer, refused to certify the election results. Mr. Biden had won the county, which includes the city of Detroit, with 68 percent of the vote, compared with 31 percent for Mr. Trump.
The two election officials pointed to minor recording discrepancies involving a few hundred votes, though the discrepancies had no effect on the outcome: Mr. Biden won the county by more than 330,000 votes. But their refusal to certify the results left the Wayne County board, made up of two Republicans and two Democrats, deadlocked. It also threatened to hold up the certification of Michigan’s entire vote.

Their action, The New York Times wrote, “was a stunningly partisan move that would have potentially disenfranchised hundreds of thousands of voters from a predominantly Black city.”
It also contributed to the chaos and confusion that spread across the nation as Mr. Trump became increasingly adamant in falsely asserting that he had actually won the election.
The two officials’ stance prompted hundreds of outraged Michigan voters and civil rights activists to immediately hold a Zoom call and accuse the two of trying to subvert the election. A few hours later, Mr. Hartmann and Ms. Palmer certified the results and approved the official tallies.
But that led Mr. Trump to personally call them, The Associated Press reported, and shortly thereafter, the officials tried to rescind their votes certifying the results, saying they had been bullied into doing so. They were unable to change their votes back, however, and the Board of State Canvassers went on to certify Michigan’s statewide results. Mr. Biden won the state’s 16 electoral votes with 50.6 percent of the vote to Mr. Trump’s 47.8 percent.
Mr. Hartmann was born on Aug. 30, 1958, but little other information about his background is publicly available, and attempts to reach his family were unsuccessful.


On his Facebook page, he indicated a long involvement with the Republican Party. He listed his alias as “Taxed Enough Already” and called himself an “international man of mystery.”
Mr. Hartmann described himself as the owner of the All In One Campaign, a collaboration of consultants who advise candidates on election strategy; the chief executive and technical engineer at Synergy Services, which calls itself a consulting firm “with a focus on federal and state contracting, along with political consultation”; and the owner and chief executive of Custom Renovation, a building renovation service, in Wyandotte.
As The Times reported during the election dispute, Mr. Hartmann had filled his Facebook page with false allegations and conspiracy theories that the 2020 results had been manipulated against Mr. Trump. He said that he was harassed after the Nov. 17 episode, that law enforcement officers had to escort him away from his home to safety, and that he did not emerge for a week.
“I was afraid that somebody might recognize me when I was out and want to beat me up,” he told the right-wing news organization The Epoch Times last December. He said he had been pursued by the news media and had received more than 1,500 hate emails.
His sister began posting updates regarding his health on Facebook last month after he had contracted Covid. But she said she stopped once the news brought unwanted attention to her family.
“Bill is fighting for his life and why someone would want to use this time for their political vomit is disgusting and sad,” she wrote. “My brother is a kind, giving, honest, outstanding man.”
Online tributes called him a patriot and a true conservative.
Mr. Hartmann made it clear on his own social media accounts that he did not believe in Covid vaccines. He suggested that vaccine passports, showing proof of vaccination, were something out of Nazi Germany.

Yawn. What are your thoughts on Daunte Wright?
I have to break it down to a fourth grade reading level for you? What that big word meant is that Daunte Wright's story, and this loser's story, are very similar: You reap what you sow. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Inner city criminals and white MAGAt criminals are cut from the same useless cloth.

It's called "logic". I know that term is difficult for the MAGAt brain to understand, but if group A wants to destroy group B, group B shouldn't "tolerate" it, but fight it every step of the way.
Then nobody should bend for the pussies like you that make up < 1% of the population yet demand special treatment. Sorry, putz.

My bad. Thought you were being sarcastic. You do have a tendency to be a sarcastic dick, as your first 2 sentences in your quoted response shows. So, go fvck yourself.

I think everyone is missing the an important aspect of this story, I knew nothing of Mr. Hartmann but if he was in fact shown true mercy and his soul was in a state of grace, he’s in a much better place than any of us…..we’ll, unless of course you’re in Tuscaloosa 😏

LOL! Where have I done that? And it wasn't his being a Republican, it was his being an irresponsible and dangerous loser. Unless you're insinuating that ALL Republicans are sheep-brained anti-vaccine conspiracy fruitcakes. I just assume its MOST.

He defended the thug/dead loser o the year, George Floyd lol.

Defended the schmucks in Kenosha that died tried to be heroes (they were white, but the liberal media still painted it as a white supremacy crime 😂).

All of those dumb shits are dead, and the world doesn’t have to worry about them roaming the streets anymore. The Prius-driving keyboard warrior is still here to hate whitey, and we are still here to laugh at him uncontrollably. 🤣

So, in other words, no defense of criminals fighting with the police. You lost. Again.

You defended the piece of shit George Floyd.

You defended the dead child molestor (your party condones kid diddling, and I have no doubt you participate) that Rittenhouse shot (I would’ve shot him multiple times and sent his body in a FedEx box to the parents of the kids he touched.

You defend antifa and BLM no matter the damage caused and crime committed.

You are a complete and utter pussy with no direction in life.

Nope. You're stunningly unintelligent, so let me correct you here. I defended George Floyd against a convicted MURDERER. And, BTW...

The store clerk who accepted a $20 bill from George Floyd shortly before Floyd died in a confrontation with police says he immediately suspected the bill was counterfeit — and he says he offered to pay for Floyd's cigarettes himself.

"I thought that George didn't really know that it was a fake bill," Christopher Martin testified Wednesday about taking the $20 bill. "So I thought I'd be doing him a favor."


I also objected to using irrelevant and incorrect (AKA "lies") about the background of all the Rittenhouse victims, as a defense against self-appointed vigilantism. You're the one celebrating a chubby, mentally handicapped freak. You've got a lot in common with everyone involved in the Rittenhouse fiasco. Wait, is this you on the left, bro?

Vaccinated people die from, and spread, Covid. If the vaccine is so great, why do you give a shit if others are unvaccinated? You got your shots, so you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

By the way, I'm sorry I didn't die from Covid a couple of weeks ago. I know you were excited when I posted I had it and wasn't vaccinated.

And isn’t that the entire rub of all of this? But the American Marxists aren’t willing to allow others to make decisions for themselves (and no, ending an innocent baby’s life is not “themselves”), it’s their arrogance and “know what’s best for you” conceit that drives them…..and I’ve frankly had enough of it.

Exactly . My father got the vaccine (both doses) then caught the Fauci paid-for China virus and passed away this past March. Didn't matter he got the jab or not.

So sockeye, your OP leaves me with just really this reply , FVCK You!

Congrats on the 6+ year old tweet, you stupid bitch 😂

I’m talking about the things you vomit on this board CURRENTLY. I typed that slowly for your prissy ass.

Again, you celebrated George Floyd’s crime, and he is now dead for being a complete retard. You celebrated the pussies that attacked Rittenhouse who are now dead, and the world rejoiced because those liberal losers can’t commit violent crimes or diddle kids (like you condone).

You are trash. Accept it.

Biden Jr. had trounced Donald J. Trump, died on Nov. 30 at a hospital in Wyandotte, Mich., near Detroit. He was 63.
About two weeks before his death, which was confirmed by the Michigan Republican Party, his sister, Elizabeth Hartmann, wrote on Facebook that Mr. Hartmann was “in ICU with Covid pneumonia and currently on a ventilator.” He had been outspoken in his opposition to Covid vaccines.
Mr. Hartmann drew national attention after he and another Republican member of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, Monica Palmer, refused to certify the election results. Mr. Biden had won the county, which includes the city of Detroit, with 68 percent of the vote, compared with 31 percent for Mr. Trump.
The two election officials pointed to minor recording discrepancies involving a few hundred votes, though the discrepancies had no effect on the outcome: Mr. Biden won the county by more than 330,000 votes. But their refusal to certify the results left the Wayne County board, made up of two Republicans and two Democrats, deadlocked. It also threatened to hold up the certification of Michigan’s entire vote.

Their action, The New York Times wrote, “was a stunningly partisan move that would have potentially disenfranchised hundreds of thousands of voters from a predominantly Black city.”
It also contributed to the chaos and confusion that spread across the nation as Mr. Trump became increasingly adamant in falsely asserting that he had actually won the election.
The two officials’ stance prompted hundreds of outraged Michigan voters and civil rights activists to immediately hold a Zoom call and accuse the two of trying to subvert the election. A few hours later, Mr. Hartmann and Ms. Palmer certified the results and approved the official tallies.
But that led Mr. Trump to personally call them, The Associated Press reported, and shortly thereafter, the officials tried to rescind their votes certifying the results, saying they had been bullied into doing so. They were unable to change their votes back, however, and the Board of State Canvassers went on to certify Michigan’s statewide results. Mr. Biden won the state’s 16 electoral votes with 50.6 percent of the vote to Mr. Trump’s 47.8 percent.
Mr. Hartmann was born on Aug. 30, 1958, but little other information about his background is publicly available, and attempts to reach his family were unsuccessful.


On his Facebook page, he indicated a long involvement with the Republican Party. He listed his alias as “Taxed Enough Already” and called himself an “international man of mystery.”
Mr. Hartmann described himself as the owner of the All In One Campaign, a collaboration of consultants who advise candidates on election strategy; the chief executive and technical engineer at Synergy Services, which calls itself a consulting firm “with a focus on federal and state contracting, along with political consultation”; and the owner and chief executive of Custom Renovation, a building renovation service, in Wyandotte.
As The Times reported during the election dispute, Mr. Hartmann had filled his Facebook page with false allegations and conspiracy theories that the 2020 results had been manipulated against Mr. Trump. He said that he was harassed after the Nov. 17 episode, that law enforcement officers had to escort him away from his home to safety, and that he did not emerge for a week.
“I was afraid that somebody might recognize me when I was out and want to beat me up,” he told the right-wing news organization The Epoch Times last December. He said he had been pursued by the news media and had received more than 1,500 hate emails.
His sister began posting updates regarding his health on Facebook last month after he had contracted Covid. But she said she stopped once the news brought unwanted attention to her family.
“Bill is fighting for his life and why someone would want to use this time for their political vomit is disgusting and sad,” she wrote. “My brother is a kind, giving, honest, outstanding man.”
Online tributes called him a patriot and a true conservative.
Mr. Hartmann made it clear on his own social media accounts that he did not believe in Covid vaccines. He suggested that vaccine passports, showing proof of vaccination, were something out of Nazi Germany.
