In the key battleground state of Michigan, a Democrat city official is being charged with ballot tampering during the 2018 mid-term elections.
Southfield City Clerk Sherikia L. Hawkins faces six felony counts over “unauthorized and inaccurate” changes that she allegedly made to absentee ballots last year. Liberal state officials are attempting to categorize Hawkins’ behavior as a “rare” case of fraud.
“Voting is fundamental to the very essence of our democracy,” Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said during a press conference on Monday. “It is incumbent upon state governments to safeguard the electoral process and ensure that every voter’s right to cast a ballot is protected.”
Hawkins is being accused of illegally altering 193 absentee voter records. The evidence of her wrongdoing was allegedly spotted during the 14-day canvass following the election. Irregularities were initially discovered by the Oakland County Clerk’s Office, which prompted the investigation resulting in Hawkins being charged.
According to an affidavit filed by state police, Oakland County Elections Director Joseph Rozell noticed some inconsistencies with the ballots while certifying absentee precincts in Southfield. Rozell “contacted Hawkins when he noticed that ballot summary sheets were blank.”
After questioning Hawkins about the errors, he noted “that the ballot return dates for voters were added or removed from the report in order to force the reports to balance to the number of ballots tabulated for each precinct on Election Night.”
“It appears that Hawkins had switched her original reports with altered reports,” wrote Michigan State Police Detective Sgt. Larissa LaMay in the report.
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, who formerly served on the board of directors for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), maintains that “there were no voters that were disenfranchised” by Hawkins’ actions.
“All valid votes in the election were ultimately counted and the final official vote total was accurate,” Benson said.
Benson has announced that the state Bureau of Elections will work with the clerk’s office in Southfield to ensure that the upcoming elections this year on Nov. 5 will be officiated properly while Hawkins is placed on administrative leave.
“Our elections are the foundation of our democracy, and under my and Attorney General Nessel’s administration there will be no tolerance for any actions that undermine that foundation – anywhere, anytime, by any person or official,” Benson said.
Hawkins is considered a Democrat Party leader in high standing in the state of Michigan. She received the Dingell/Levin Award at the Michigan Democrat Party’s Legacy Dinner in Detroit just a few months ago.

Michigan Democrats are now scurrying to disavow a disgraced public official who was recently considered a rising star in their party fold.
“Absentee ballots will start to go out this week for the upcoming November municipal election and Secretary Benson has removed Clerk Hawkins from administering this election,” said state Sen. Jeremy Moss and Rep. Kyra Harris Bolden, two Democrats who represent Southfield in the Michigan state legislature, in a joint statement.
“We can assure our Southfield neighbors that their votes will be counted,” they added.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
