Voter fraud update

Nice to see that this story is not going away. Back on February 9 I posted about Melowese Richardson who freely admitted to voting twice in last November's election. Now it seems that she might have cast six ballots -- from FOX News:
Did Obama supporter vote 6 times in 2012? Ohio poll worker target of investigation
The Obama/Biden lawn sign remains proudly planted in front of Melowese Richardson's Cincinnati home, three months after the presidential election.

It seems that President Obama has an especially ardent supporter in the veteran Ohio poll worker.

Richardson told a local television station this month that she voted twice last November. She cast an absentee ballot and then voted at the polls as well.

"Yes, I voted twice," Richardson told WCPO-TV. "I, after registering thousands of people, certainly wanted my vote to count, so I voted. I voted at the polls."

Authorities also are investigating if she voted in the names of four other people, too, for a total of six votes in the 2012 presidential election.
A bit more:
"It appears she not only attempted to vote more than once, but was actually successful at it and having those additional votes counted," Ohio Secretary of State John Husted, who is in charge of the state's elections, told Fox News.

"She appears to have used her position as a poll worker to cover her tracks. That would be someone who is an official in the elections process, using that position to commit a fraud. That is especially troubling to me, as the chief elections officer of the state, because it is my responsibility to make sure the system runs effectively, that it has integrity. When I find issues like this, I know that it undermines voter confidence in our elections, and we must pursue it."
She needs to spend some time in jail. It would be curious to know how many cases of voter fraud there were -- we know about the bus-loads of people showing up in Michigan. Posted by DaveH at February 19, 2013 4:35 PM
