MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - One day after the FOX 9 Investigators reported that as many as 24,000 Minnesota drivers licenses may be frauds, a state employee working in Secretary of State Mark Ritchie's department appeared in court to face charges that she fraudulently obtained a drivers license and housing assistance.

A federal indictment was unsealed on Monday, revealing that a 53-year-old Woodbury woman who works as an administrative assistant in the Secretary of State's Office has been accused of using an alternate identity to receive more than $18,000 in low-income housing help from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Oluremi George has been charged with five counts of Social Security fraud, four counts of making false statements, and one count of passport fraud in the indictment, which was filed on July 10. George made her first appearance in federal court on Monday.

Yet, when it comes to driver's licenses -- real or fake -- the Secretary of State Mark Ritchie is already at the center of controversy as an outspoken opponent of the upcoming voter ID referendum on the ballot in November, which would require voters to have a valid state ID.

The irony of the indictment was not lost on Minnesota Majority, the group campaigning for the amendment. Ritchie, however, is out of state and has been unavailable for comment.

FOX 9 News checked to see if Victoria Ayoola had voted in recent elections, and it appears that she did; however, she did not use her legitimate identity to vote.

Ayoola is an African word that means “Happy in Riches”.

Another Nigerian scam.

Sadly, I guess I am a racist, because that picture confirms my suspicions.

OMG!! This lady watched over me while I repaired some equipment in the SOS office. She said she was watching me to “prevent id theft”...

Good lord.. I better shut up now.. I don’t need a visit from the state police if she tries to throw me under the bus.

thankfully.. they accepted my company ID.. Not enough info on that to run off with my info.

Plus with the states computer there.. she could probably just take it from the computer...

If that doesn’t stop her, someone already trashed my credit via id theft. still trying to clear that up.

leftards will just say this proves requiring voter ID won’t stop fraud because she had fake IDs.

rats will just blame this on the previous administration:

Using the Ayoola name, George was hired by then-Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer in 2005 as a temporary office specialist. In 2006, she was promoted to administrative specialist, according to Pat Turgeon, spokeswoman for the office.

Were you listening to Davis and Emmer this morning?

They were talking about this insurance deal that Grassley is flogging. Very arcane IMO. To pockets arguing about where the bill is payed out of.

Anyway, sounds like the democrats are ready to spin this as a major scandal if Pawlenty is picked for VP.
