Clerk pleads no contest in 2020 Flint-area ballot sabotage

A woman who was a public official in a Michigan community admitted Wednesday that she broke a seal on a ballot box to ensure that votes could not be recounted in her 2020 race, prosecutors said.

Kathy Funk, 59, pleaded no contest to misconduct in office, a felony, under an agreement that includes no time in jail. Funk had won the race by just 79 votes out of about 5,300. A recount was not conducted. After the August 2020 election, Funk contacted state police to report a break-in at Flint Township Hall and that a seal on a ballot cannister had been damaged.

Funk quit her township post in 2021 for a bigger job as elections supervisor for Genesee County. She was dismissed last year.


'One More Year' fund started to try and retain Corum, other key players at Michigan

A crowdfunding effort is underway to try and keep a handful of Michigan Wolverines with NFL aspirations in college for another season.

Created by Valiant Management Group, the “One More Year” fund is live now on their website. This NIL fund is designed to retain players like Blake Corum, Zak Zinter, Trevor Keegan, Cornelius Johnson and others who have not yet declared for the NFL Draft. All proceeds will go straight to the players who return for the 2023 season.

Any amount of money can be donated, but if you donate $5,000 or more, you will receive exclusive donor benefits. Those benefits include Zoom calls with the players, signed memorabilia and more. If you wish to donate more than $5,000, you are encouraged to email Valiant at fundraising@valiantuofm.com to receive those benefits.
