The Michigan attorney general announced criminal charges Tuesday against 16 people in a case involving the attempt by Trump supporters to overturn the state’s 2020 election results by calling a fake list of Electoral College electors.

Each of the 16 defendants was charged with eight felony counts, including forgery and conspiracy to commit forgery, for allegedly signing documents falsely certifying that they were Michigan’s “duly chosen and qualified electors” for president and vice president.

Those charged included Meshawn Maddock, 55, who was the co-chairman of the Michigan Republican Party at the time. Ms. Maddock, who has close ties to former President Donald J. Trump and is the wife of a state representative, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
