Trenae Myesha Rainey – Macomb County Sheriff’s Office
Trenae Myesha Rainey pleaded guilty Wednesday and was sentenced to 45 days in jail for forging signatures of the mentally disabled on absentee ballot applications.
Trenae Myesha Rainey forged the signature on approximately two dozen ballot registrations.
The Metro Times reported.
Rainey forged the signatures of residents of the Father Murray Nursing Home where she worked, even though they had not requested the applications.
She was sentenced to probation, with the first 45 days to be served in the Macomb County Jail.
Rainey was busted after the Centerline clerk received a stack of roughly two dozen absentee voter applications and cross-checked the signatures on the applications with voter signatures on the qualified voter file. The signatures didn’t match.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said the case highlights how election securities easily weed out fraud.
