Georgia man charged with threatening Michigan judge

By The Associated Press

DETROIT (AP) — A Georgia man has been charged with threatening a Michigan judge after she said absentee ballots arriving after the Nov. 3 election still could be counted.

Clinton Stewart of Douglas, Georgia, left a threatening voicemail for Judge Cynthia Stephens on Sept. 18, claiming "activist judges" were favoring Joe Biden with decisions to make it easier to vote through the mail, Michigan authorities said Tuesday.

Stephens' decision, which would have allowed the counting of Michigan ballots that were postmarked by Nov. 2 and delivered within two weeks, was overturned by a higher court.

The alleged threat was discovered on Oct. 2 by a member of the judge's staff, the attorney general's office said.

Stewart, 43, was charged in a Detroit court with a misdemeanor. He couldn't immediately be reached for comment; no phone number is listed for him.

Separately, the attorney general's office filed misdemeanor charges against a Michigan man who is accused of making threatening calls to U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., and Slotkin's staff.
