Poll worker gets 5-year sentence for voter fraud

Judge says woman violated position of trust

CINCINNATI —A Hamilton County poll worker who was found to have voted repeatedly for family members will go to prison.

Melowese Richardson was sentenced to five years in prison for voting fraud on Wednesday. She worked as a poll worker for 14 years.

Richardson said she voted for her sister several times. Her sister has been in a coma since 2003, Richardson said.

Judge Robert Ruehlman said Richardson violated a position of trust and is a criminal, noting she is supposed to be a guardian of free elections.

Ruehlman told Richardson that President Barack Obama would be appalled by her conduct if he knew what she did.

WLWT News 5's John London will have more on this story later today.

I thought that Voter ID is completely unnecessary, as there’s no such thing as voter fraud.

If she has any money someone from Ohio needs to sue her for violating their right to vote.

She’s just one of the dopes dumb enough to get caught.
How many somewhat smarter ones are out there getting away with vote fraud year after year?

It is what community organizers DO. Teach the rest of the little marxists how to cheat. To them all is fair where communism is at stake.
And the republicans just stare with that same old dopey look and do zip, zero, nada.

Probably several thousand or so more to go.

no doubt. Let me climb up on my soapbox for a minute.

After the 2012 elections, I read with amusement the posts by FReepers: "Fraud!", "We were robbed!", and so on. Sez me, fraud certainly exists, but Romney lost by a few million votes. No way fraud cost him the election.

Then I started reading about polling places in PA and OH. Places that went unanimously for Obama - 20-odd thousand votes in some cases. I said, "Hmm. Maybe these FReepers SHOULDN'T get fitted for tinfoil hats, after all." Unanimity is NOT a hallmark of Americanism. Certainly, out of 20,000 people, there would be one conservative. One person who goofed and pulled the wrong lever. One fool who thought that it would be funny to vote Communist. A clean sweep - frankly for any candidate - is really suspect.

Now, Voter ID is being discussed in my state. Predictably, Dems are against it. I'm for it, it's a good thing in the long term - but - NC has pretty much been a dead heat in the past two presidential elections. I see the following happening in 2016 if Voter ID is enacted:

1) NC stays a dead heat. I see this as a bad thing because it means that Dems have made serious inroads here.

2) NC goes back to being about 55-45. I also see this as a bad thing, because it means that my vote for at least the past couple of elections has been completely meaningless and nullified by fraud.

/end rant

The verdict must be a mistake because Liberals have assured me that there is no voter fraud.

Democrat refrain has been that there is no need for voter ID because fraud is insignificant. I find it to be significant that all, All, ALL fraud voting has been by the same party affiliates that say there is no such thing.

Interesting, no?

If photo ID can’t be required for voting because that’s racist, why isn’t it just as racist to require one for buying a gun?

The Rats had a very precise and ingenious fraud plan.

The knew they didn't have to target the whole country, just a few counties, comparatively, to swing the election their way in crucial states.

Under and no count Romney votes, over count and manufacture OBummer votes, where they knew they could get away with it with total impunity.

Her only error was being stupid enough not to lie about it. If she had lied, she’d still be free today since voting is in secret.

But no worries. Some other Democrat will be voting for Melowese and her comatose sister in 2016.

Hopefully Mississippi will have Voter ID in place for the 2014 elections. According to our SOS my vote only counts .95% of a vote because of fraud. Voter ID by itself won’t give me a whole vote but if we can now get absentee voting fixed I’ll be a lot closer.

Interesting to follow how early she is released, what government job is waiting for her, and how much money has been deposited in an account with her name on it.

The last line from one of the anti-voter ID papers from NYU’s Brennan “Justice” Center said “Voter ID only makes a difference in the close elections anyway.” Yes it’s made a difference in several Senate and Congressional elections in the past two Federal elections and probably made a differencein several State outcomes in the last presidential. democrats believe they are entitled to cheat and steal and are certainly entitled to be decared winner in any close election.

Remember that voter fraud almost certainly gave us the inept PT boat commander and womanizer JFK in 1960,and LBJ most certainly cheated at the polls in his early career.

Without LBJ we would not have had the manufactured Tonkin Gulf incident,the subsequent horribly expensive in money and lives Vietnam War, and the Great Society plan that used gfederal money to destroy the black family .

Every fraudulent vote is an attack on America.

How many other votes did her sister get. She must have been a hell of a campaigner.

Watch the video where she is kind and helpful enough to admit every crime she committed. That smug look on her self-righteous arrogant face infuriates me.

Only appalled that she was caught and won't be easily able to vote Democrat multiple times in the future.

If treason is a capitol offense why isn’t voter fraud. They have exactly the same effect on society.
