Any legislature will have “house rules” by which it operates. Do those house rules have the force of law for US States? If, for example, a house speaker miscounts votes, is that an arrestable offence for voter fraud?
For example, Rachel Maddow has alleged that, in Michigan, the speaker of the House miscounted votes (Part 2). Assuming this allegation is accurate, would this behaviour actually be illegal?
Note: In the videos, Rachel Maddow also talks quite a lot about what the Republicans were doing with their allegedly invalid votes. I'm not asking about that in this question, only about whether miscounting votes in the House is actually an illegal act.
