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.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) filed the “PENCIL Resolution on Thursday. The legislation will ban Adam Schiff from accessing classified information. And the legislation, urges Congress to launch and investigation by the House Ethics Committee.
