Democrat official in Michigan charged with Ballot Tampering Misconduct in 2020 Election

“A former Michigan county township clerk has been charged with ballot tampering and official misconduct in connection with an expected recount in her own August 2020 primary election.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced the charges on Friday against ex-Flint Township Clerk Kathy Funk, a Democrat who will face trial in Genesee County District court.

Funk is accused of intentionally breaking a seal on a ballot container so the votes could not be counted in an anticipated recount. Funk was running for reelection, and narrowly prevailed in the unofficial count, Nessel said.

Funk also was serving at the time as an election official. A recount did not happen. Funk later resigned her township job and took a job as Genesee County election supervisor.”
