Poll worker who voted for Obama multiple times convicted of voting fraud

Ohio-voter-fraudSurely, you recall Melowese Richardson, the Democratic poll worker in the critical battleground state of Ohio who may have voted for Barack Obama up to six times in November.

Upon being charged, she vowed to fight “for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.”

Well, she gave up the fight in short order.

With little media fanfare, it was announced Tuesday that Richardson pleaded no contest to four counts of illegal voting – including voting three times for a relative who has been in a coma since 2003 – in exchange for prosecutors dropping four other illegal voting charges, according to Cincinnati.com.

Richardson acknowledged in November that she voted by absentee ballot and then again at a precinct because she was afraid her absentee ballot would not be counted, according to Cincinnati’s Channel 9.

She also said she sent in an absentee ballot for her granddaughter, who voted at the precinct. And three other registered voters at Richardson’s address sent in absentee ballots at the same time, all with similar handwriting.

Richardson, who’ll be sentenced on July 9, is the third person in Hamilton County to be convicted this year for illegal voting.

    The bigger question should be how many more Melowese Richardsons are there?

    I'm just happy they found the one and only person who fraudulently voted for Obama. What a joke.

    This voter fraud issue brings something even more immoral. The issue of gerrymandering. The GOP legislatures of some states actually redraw congressional districts to favor the GOP. Is like voter fraud, without the voters because the majority of voters in these new districts will be reliably GOP. It doesn't always work because sometimes the candidate is do odious that even the GOP voters can't give their candidate the votes. Examples: Walsh and West. Further on this issue is the attempt by the GOP at voter suppression. Limiting early voting times or changing the ability to vote on Sundays. Knowing from research that many black church goers prefer to vote after church. What's the greater immoral issue here, one lady who votes six or more times, or the actual attempt to deny citizens their rights to vote? Lots of other examples here. Like the denial of people getting out of prison the right to vote, even though they served their times and their crimes had nothing to do with anything against the national good. Other states routinely return these voting rights to these people, but, some states don't. Guess which ones don't. You know. Voter fraud. Bigger issue that this one person.

      Stay on point. An old trick of Dems caught in the crossfire is to point out some misdeed or other that the accuser may be guilty of as a way of deflecting and distracting and avoiding the honest response or acknowledgement. Gerrymandering? Really? Seems like whoever is in power locally wants to carve up the district to favor their constituency. That has been going on forever. I dislike it too. But if elections in this country are being stolen by wholesale voter fraud, and this old lady Meloweese was just too stupid to get away with it, then we are in serious trouble. Requiring voters to properly identify themselves before exercising their voting privilege is not too much to ask. Try getting on a plane without ID. Can't do it.

        Gerrymandering is on point. Fraud for votes is basically more prevalent with the GOP legislators in Red States. This lady who appears to have voted six times is small change compared to the outright abuse of these GOP legislatures. I think that any change in voter ID requirements should not wait until the last two weeks before an election to obviously block some voters from the poles. These voters just happen to be mostly black, poor, released prisoners who should have their voting right restored under the state law. The GOP stood out in stark contrast in blatant stopping "some" people from voting at the poles. It just "seemed" that the blocked voters just happened to be interested in voting Democratic. Currently, gerrymandering is the only way the GOP can hold the House. It will be up to the voters to see beyond this trashy, desparate attempt to illegally control government. With the eventual decrease in the angry, white vote, it is almost certain. The GOP has to learn to play it straight and honest, or, go out of business. I think they are on this path.

    There is nothing that quite matches an avid obamanoid voter.

    1. Ted says:

      Observant One. I presume that from your comments that you voted GOP. Simply put, for you, your vote went towards the loser. You still thing he was the right man. I presume that you must also be a loser. All things considered. Only 1,000 more days of Obama. Think of this everyday you wake up. Another day of Obama. Then, youse guys will lose again, and continue to be losers. You get points for being consistent. Congratulations.
