Benton Harbor Reverend Faces Election Fraud Charges

A Benton Harbor man will be back in court Wednesday to face charges of election fraud.

Reverend Edward Pinkney is accused of using cash and other methods to sway voters in a 2005 recall election, targeting a city commissioner.

Pinkney's first trial ended with a hung jury.

This time, he filed a motion claiming Berrien County's jury selection process lacks representation by minorities.

That motion was denied.

Again, Pinkney's trial is expected to start Wednesday.
