Stefanie Lambert, Stephanie Scott

Stefanie Lambert's previous mug shot was taken during an arrest by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office. Stephanie Scott claimed she's a victim of a 'witch hunt' during a 2023 interview with NBC News.

The 'Kraken' lawyer from Michigan, who is already facing charges for election interference and under scrutiny for leaking discovery in a defamation lawsuit, now faces new felony charges. These charges, along with her ousted township clerk client, involve computer crime and allege unlawful access to and transmission of voter information, all as part of efforts to prove the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump.

Stefanie Lambert, also known as Stefanie Lynn Junttila, had most recently argued against being disqualified from the Dominion lawsuit by asserting that she is the “most competent in the country” and the “most qualified and knowledgeable about election fraud/election law.” Now she and her client, former Adams Township Clerk Stephanie Scott, are accused co-conspirators in election-related crimes.

The Michigan Attorney General’s Office revealed Wednesday that the state alleges Scott, 52, and her lawyer, 42, allowed an “unauthorized computer examiner access to voter data, including non-public voter information, concerning the 2020 General Election.”

“The Department contends that Scott intentionally disregarded numerous instructions from the Director of Elections, acting on behalf of the Secretary of State, to present the Adams Township voting tabulator to an authorized vendor for maintenance and testing and withheld the tabulator until it was seized by Michigan State Police pursuant to a search warrant,” a press release said. “The Department also alleges Lambert illicitly transmitted data from the Adams Township Electronic Poll Book concerning the 2020 General Election under the direction of Scott.”

The Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) said Scott and Lambert abused their positions to “promote baseless conspiracies” about the 2020 election.

“Ensuring election security and integrity stands as the cornerstone of our democracy,” the AG said. ‘When elected officials and their proxies use their positions to promote baseless conspiracies, show blatant disregard for voter privacy, and break the law in the process, it undermines the very essence of the democratic process. Those who engage in such reckless conduct must be held accountable for their actions.”

The core tenet of the never-successful post-2020 election “Kraken” lawsuits, including the failed case in Michigan that Lambert participated in as local counsel, was that massive fraud tilted the election from Trump to President Joe Biden.

Lambert escaped sanctions for her involvement in the “Kraken” suit, but she has not escaped criminal charges so far.

Already facing a felony indictment in Oakland County for an alleged conspiracy to gain unauthorized access to and willfully damage voting machines, Lambert is now additionally accused of using a computer to commit a crime, unauthorized access to a computer and conspiracy to commit that offense — each felonies punishable by several years in prison.

Dan Hartman, a lawyer for Lambert, reportedly stated she was simply attempting to hold powerful entities accountable for breaking election laws.

“I have talked to Stefanie who remains unwavering in her attempts to make the people’s election information, processes and procedures transparent,” he stated, Bridge Michigan reported.

Stephanie Scott faces a total of five charges, four of them being felonies and one a misdemeanor. The state claims that Scott defied the lawful order of the Secretary of State to return a voting machine for testing. It was earlier reported that authorities were investigating how part of a tabulator termed the “brains of the machine” went missing.

In a previous interview with NBC News, Scott stated that she was the target of a “witch hunt” led by the Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D).

During the segment, video showed Scott standing in a room, passionately stating that “this machine is suspect” and “we’re turning into Venezuela.” Then came the exchange between the interviewer and Scott.

“We have a secretary of state that started a witch hunt against me because I started asking questions about the elections,” Scott said. “All I was doing was trying to take on this clerk position, run fair elections, make sure the data was accurate. I was doing by job.”

When NBC pointed out that Scott’s social media page was filled with references to the QAnon slogan “Where We Go One, We Go All” (WWG1WGA), she said that the pro-Donald Trump conspiracy theory was not relevant to her job.

“It has nothing to do with anything on this election,” Scott said. “It has absolutely nothing to do with this position.”

The Michigan Secretary of State in 2021 barred Scott from running elections, an action Scott referred to as “tyranny.”

“The county clerk’s office and now Secretary of State are demanding I drop off my machine for unfettered access, and God only knows doing what to it,” she said. “When you have the fox guarding the henhouse, somebody’s got to stand up and guard those hens.”

Scott was recalled by voters in a pro-Trump township and was removed from office in 2023.

Scott is also charged with official misconduct, conspiracy, use of a computer to commit a crime, and unauthorized access. It’s not immediately clear if she has an attorney — other than co-defendant Lambert, that is.
