The Michigan complaint includes mention of a 2008 DNC lawsuit accusing Republicans there of engaging in a new form of "caging," referring to shady tactics operatives have used to create lists of voter registrations to challenge. The lawsuit also highlights the comments Trump and his surrogates have made specifically while in the state, encouraging his supporters to watch polling sites in places other than their own precincts.
Pointing out that the Trump campaign appears to be reliant on the Michigan GOP for its get-out-the-vote effort, the Democrats allege that Republicans there have focused their poll watching efforts on urban areas, with the suggestion that Democrats and minority voters are more likely to commit election fraud.
Additionally, the complaint used an affidavit from state GOP Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel filed in the RNC case -- where the DNC had argued that a fundraising email quoting Romney McDaniel showed RNC involvement in prohibited activities -- to allege in this suit that the Michigan Party was engaged in voter intimidation activities.
