Voter fraud

Toss them in jail — from National Review Online:

The Voter Fraud That ‘Never Happens’ Keeps Coming Back
Critics of voter ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they’re unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. For instance, Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year: “A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike.”

Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters and nine witnesses are part of the probe.

Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election.

More at the site — this was first reported by Cincinnati station WCPO which has a lot more including the fact that there were five people casting absentee ballots from her physical address and that she cast the ballot for one of her grandchildren.

Now wasn't Ohio one of Obama's key states? Wonder why…
