In 2018, the legalization of marijuana was placed on the ballot in Michigan. Thanks to all of the young voters who showed up in large numbers to vote for the legalization of weed, all three of Michigan’s dirtiest and most dishonest elected officials, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, and Attorney General Dana Nessel, won their seats.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is one of the most lawless, partisan, incompetent, and embarrassing elected officials in the United States of America. The man-hating, lesbian Democrat activist actually ran a campaign ad during prime time on local television stations promoting her as the best candidate for attorney general because you could “trust” her to “not show you” her “penis.”
The photo below was taken at the largest sporting event of the year in Michigan, the MSU vs. UM football game. AG Nessel was so drunk in the stadium filled with tens of thousands of fans she had to be removed in a wheelchair.
Last week, Michigan’s lawless attorney general finally announced charges against Democrat Kathy Funk, the former Flint township clerk and current Genessee County elections supervisor, related to the August 2020 primary election.
Daily Mail – She ran as a Democrat and held onto her position until November when she announced she was taking a job as elections supervisor in the Genesee County Clerk-Register John Gleason’s office.
Funk has kept her job at the county despite a Michigan State Police investigation into her conduct in August 2020.
She is due back in Genesee District Court on Monday when her attorney Matthew Norwood said she will plead not guilty to the charges against her.
If convicted, she faces up to 10 years in prison.
Epoch Times reports – Nessel alleged that Funk purposely broke a seal on a container for ballots so that the votes couldn’t be totaled during an anticipated recount. She narrowly won reelection in the unofficial count, the attorney general’s office said.
AG Nessel, who frequently takes to Twitter to mock conservatives or make baseless threats against political opponents, responded to a ClickonDetroit tweet about Funk.
“Election officials must uphold the integrity of their positions. Those who abuse that commitment undermine the very foundation of our democracy. Our department is committed to prosecuting election violations, regardless of the political party of the perpetrator,” Nessel tweeted.

Nessel’s comments are curious because when MI SOS Jocelyn Benson was found violating the law when she told MI clerks to ignore signature matching in the November 2020 election, Nessel looked the other way.
And when Southfield City Clerk Sharikia Hawkins was accused of six felony counts of voter fraud related to absentee ballots, Hawkins continued to work as the city clerk through the November 2020 election and beyond. She even ran for re-election, and the bright citizens of Southfield, MI, re-elected her while her court case dragged on for years.
After the August 2020 election, Funk filed a report with the Flint Township Police Department claiming there was a break-in at the election office and said a seal on a canister containing ballots had been broken, according to local reports. Her opponent, Manya Triplett, said she had considered a recount, but, according to state election law, those votes couldn’t be included in a recount because of the tampering.
Under Section 168.871 of Michigan state law, “the board of canvassers conducting a recount” has to look over “all ballots of a precinct using an electronic voting system” unless certain problems arise.
The law stipulates that ballots cannot be recounted if “the seal on the transfer case or other ballot container” is broken or have a different number than recorded in the poll record book, among other circumstances. If the seal on the ballot “label assembly” is broken or if numbers don’t match the poll records or ballot labels, they cannot be counted, according to the Michigan Legislature’s website, which offers details of state voting law.
Funk later resigned as Flint Township clerk to become Genesee County’s elections supervisor, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Broken seals and damaged transfer cases are a common occurrence in Wayne County, Michigan, where the votes haven’t been recounted in several years because…
Under Michigan election law, if the seal was broken or the ballot count numbers don’t match up, your vote still counts, but ballots in that box won’t be recounted.
From Part I in a series of stunning reports from MC4EI: Detroit used defective ballot boxes last November.
The Detroit Department of Elections, under the authority of City Clerk Janice Winfrey, allegedly used defective ballot boxes in the November 2020 elections.
This was reported to both legal counsels at the Wayne County Board of Canvassers and the Senate Oversight Committee, which recommended an investigation by the Secretary of State and the Attorney General. But none appears to have occurred, despite the fact that, under Michigan law, if a clerk is found guilty of using an unapproved ballot container in an election, it is a misdemeanor crime punishable by up to 90 days in jail.
The following is an excerpt from a report by Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity (www.MC4EI.com), entitled “TCF Timeline: the 2020 Detroit General Election”:
Both Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chair, Monica Palmer and her fellow GOP canvasser, Bill Hartmann, had been to the DOE (Detroit Department of Elections) in January before the elections to examine and approve 50 new ballot boxes (metal transfer cases in which ballots are stored from the election through the canvass). While there, Hartmann noticed the back end of one of the boxes caved in when he pressed against it. The spot welds attaching the back end or “back beam” to the frame had failed. “Where the seams are, you could shove papers right through the back of them,” Palmer told a Senate Committee. Concerned, Hartmann decided to test the others. Soon the canvassers were going from box to box, reaching inside and giving a good “slap” on the back end from the inside out. Hartman recalled dozens of boxes failed this simple test.
“None of the boxes had any markings on them. No company name or any indication of what company manufactured them.” -Bill Hartmann, member of GOP Wayne County Board of Canvassers
He found it peculiar that “none of the boxes had any markings on them. No company name or any indication of what company manufactured them.” He then examined the cardboard boxes they arrived in. Again, there was no indication of a manufacturer or even any printed wording. Since the boxes were defective and the chain of custody could easily be compromised by someone slipping ballots through the gaps at the back, the canvassers ordered them to be repaired or replaced, followed by a second attempt at certification. They recommended not using the same company due to its abysmal failure rate.
“The boxes were defective, and the chain of custody easily compromised by someone slipping ballots through the gap in the back.”
So, when Palmer and Hartmann arrived at the counting board floor on Election Day, they were appalled to find boxes to which they themselves had affixed and signed stickers back in January warning: “Not approved for use as a ballot container.” Palmer testified to Senator Ed McBroom: “I did observe several counting boards that were using the unapproved containers.” She emailed the Canvassing Board’s legal counsel. Under Michigan law, a clerk using an unapproved container could be charged with a misdemeanor. She then asked the Senators: “How are these processes happening? Especially when we had the Secretary of State send oversight in there to help improve things.”
The image below shows a ballot box that was used on the November 3, 2020, election with a sticker signed by Detroit Board of Canvassers Chair Monica Palmer that clearly states: Not Approved For Use As A Ballot Container.
Here is close up shot of the warning sticker on the ballot box:
Could unscrupulous election staff remove what might serve as a false backing on a sealed metal ballot container and insert, remove or swap out ballots? If the above testimony and the photo accompanying this excerpt are any indication—it certainly is a valid concern.
“Where the seams are, you could shove papers right through the back of them.” -Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chair Monica Palmer.
Normally, at the close of the election, these ballot containers are sealed by the workers at the respective counting board; the seal numbers are recorded and must be signed and one Democrat under Michigan law by one Republican. A GOP challenger alleges that, at the close of counting, the TCF Counting Board chief, Daniel Baxter, asked for a handful of Republican poll workers to sign the seals on numerous ballot containers that they did not feel comfortable signing. This was because they did not work at the counting boards where the ballot containers originated and, therefore, could not attest to having any knowledge of what was in the containers or whether the chain of custody was still intact.
It’s easy to cheat in cities like Detroit and Flint, where broken seals on ballot boxes, defective ballot containers are used in elections, and precincts don’t balance, so they conveniently can’t be recounted.
Does anyone wonder why Donald Trump and his supporters are so frustrated by the shocking election results in Michigan?
