Michigan Democrat Kathy Funk, who served as the Flint Township Clerk, was sentenced to six months of house arrest on Monday for tampering with ballots in the 2020 election.
In January, Funk pleaded no contest to misconduct in office, which is treated the same as a guilty plea for sentencing purposes.
As the Associated Press (AP) detailed:
Funk had won the Democratic nomination by just 79 votes out of about 5,300. A recount was not conducted, and she subsequently won the general election that fall. Investigators say she sabotaged the ballot box after the primary election, an act that would make those ballots ineligible for a recount.
The 59-year-old Democrat official initially told Michigan police she thought someone broke into the township hall and damaged the seal on the ballot canister, per AP.
Judge Mark Latchana said at sentencing:
I’m sure there’s a segment of the population that thinks you should be locked up for calling into question the integrity of an election. And if we had unlimited jail space, perhaps that’s true. But we don’t. So, we have to use our available resources wisely. And someone who is 59-years-old, who’s never been in trouble before, and didn’t commit any violent acts, doesn’t need to be going to jail in this community. If you lived up north, that might be a different story where they have jail space to spare, but we don’t.
In addition to house arrest, Latchana sentenced Funk to two years of probation and a $1,000 fine. Funk was also ordered to submit a public letter of apology within 30 days of sentencing.

The reason election fraud keeps happening is because of hand-slap sentences like this.
Give the law some teeth, like 5 years in the slammer and 6-figure fines, and it wouldn’t happen nearly as often.
house arrest? Like the covid shutdown for the entire population? So either she received no punishment, or the covid shutdown was the same punishment as committing a major crime - doled out to every single innocent american by illegal government fiat.
Election fraud is treason period.
It should get the requisite punishment.
Sue her ass off.
How does this hack get off so easy when J6 Protesters are rotting in Jail?
“Michigan Democrat Kathy Funk, who served as the Flint Township Clerk, was sentenced to six months of house arrest on Monday for tampering with ballots in the 2020 election.“
Not a SHRED of evidence, huh???…. And this is only ONE stupid clerk. They had a small army doing the same crap over several crucial swing states.
Vote fraud in any form should carry an automatic death sentence. It’s a direct attack on the entire body politic.
VOTE FRAUD SHOULD HAVE MANDATORY MINIMUM 20 YEARS JAIL TIME
Then send her up north! Easy Peasy.......
There. Fixed it.
House arrest like covid lockdown, should be in jail for a few years, no deterrent, they will do it again
“...doesn’t need to be going to jail in this community.”
Yes, she does. And for a very long time.
House arrest. So her friends can come over and they can plan more voter fraud. Great.
Yeah, I heard about this on CNN. Ha ha ha ha ha... no, of course not.
US paper currency in its early iterations, carried the warning “TO COUNTERFEIT IS DEATH” and should be so marked today. The same for ballots as well...
No, Election Fraud didn’t happen. It’s FAKE NEWS... 🤓
