President Donald Trump has been arguing for years that there’s rampant fraud and crimes taking place in America’s elections. And a recent case proves he is absolutely correct.
A prominent Michigan official is now facing six felony charges for stunning election crimes.
Sherikia Hawkins, who serves as a city clerk for Southfield, allegedly forged records and falsely marked absentee ballots as invalid during the 2018 midterm election.
The Democrat was arrested after the Oakland County Clerk’s office noticed discrepancies in voter counts while certifying absentee ballots from Southfield.
The case first made headlines in late September, but the conclusion of a police investigation reveals the extent to which the Democrat committed election crimes.
Authorities found that records had been altered so that nearly 200 voter files were improperly listed as invalid.
Hawkins is accused of switching her original reports with altered reports. Originals were reportedly found in a trash can.
It’s also important to note that Hawkins is not some random Democrat.
She’s an award-winning leftist insider in the state who was honored this summer with the Democrats’ Dingell/Levin Award at the party’s Legacy Dinner in Detroit.
She is also paid over $101,000 annually as the city’s clerk and controls all of the election matters in the area.

According to court documents, Michigan police found that 193 absentee voter files were changed in the city’s computer system to say they either had no signature or no return date, when they had both valid signatures and return dates.
Police stated that after Oakland County Election Director Joseph Rozell found that Hawkins had submitted altered reports, his staff found the original ones in a trash can at the election division office.
“All valid votes in the election were ultimately counted and the final official vote total was accurate,” she said.
Hawkins’ arrest comes just months after she was honored May 18 at the Michigan Democratic Party’s Legacy Dinner, where she received the Dingell/Levin Award. In 2017, she was listed among the “40 under 40” by the Michigan Chronicle, according to a government bio from her previous role as Pontiac city clerk.
Hawkins was charged with falsifying records in violation of state election law, forgery of a public record, misconduct in office and three counts of using a computer to commit a crime. The top count carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison.
Seems like corrupt Democrats have been charged and arrested a lot lately.
