An elected official in Michigan with a “D” suffixing her name received no jail time as part of a plea agreement in which her lawyer admitted that she tampered with a ballot box after an especially close election in an effort to complicate a recount.
In the summer of 2020, Kathy Funk called in a report of a break-in to the Flint Township Hall in the room that held the ballots that showed her winning by 79 votes on the initial count. The cops allege that she inadvertently alerted them to her own crime.
Funk moved to a higher position within the county after committing the crime within the town. “Funk, a Democrat, was the Flint Township clerk in 2020 with responsibility over elections,” the Associated Press reports. “She was accused of sabotaging a ballot box after the August primary that year, an act that would make those ballots ineligible for a recount.”
That disturbed, hirsute guy wearing Viking horns and facepaint as though attending a sporting event or a Halloween party? He still sits in a prison cell within the Gadsden Purchase for his crimes against democracy, which essentially involve taking an unauthorized tour of the U.S. Capitol.
This lady from Michigan? Her sentencing occurs in March and precludes incarceration.
