A video posted to social media appears to show an election commissioner in Mississippi fight with a supporter of her opponent on Election Day.
According to the Mississippi Clarion-Ledger, Sheri McClatchy and Pearlie Howell are facing simple assault charges for a filmed altercation that unfolded across the street from a polling precinct in Holly Springs.
McClatchy was the incumbent election commissioner for Marshall County — District 1. Howell was reportedly campaigning for McClatchy’s opponent, Jamarr Walton.
On late Tuesday, Walton announced in a Facebook post that he unseated McClatchy for election commissioner.
