Melowese Richardson is the poster girl for vote fraud. The Ohio poll worker was sentenced last July to five years in prison after being convicted of voting twice in the 2012 election and voting three times -- in 2008, 2011 and 2012 -- in the name of her sister, in a coma since 2003, according to USA Today. This might be below Chicago graveyard standards, but it's still impressive. Ms. Richardson has become a heroine to the left, which is working with its legal arm -- the U.S. Justice Department -- to kill voter photo-ID laws in order to ensure that creative voting continues.
The release of a woman convicted of voter fraud for casting ballots six times for President Barack Obama in 2012 is part of a "toxic movement" that accepts "criminal acts in the election" to push a progressive agenda, former Department of Justice lawyer J. Christian Adams charged Tuesday. Adams, whose book "Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department," focuses on alleged racial bias in the U.S. Attorney General's Office, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV that "anybody who says there's no such thing as voter fraud is a liar." Referring to the case of Melowese Richardson, who served eight months of a five-year term for voter fraud, Adams noted that Richardson was hailed as hero at a rally last week with some fellow Ohio Democrats and civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton after the George Soros-funded Ohio Justice and Policy Center helped lessen her sentence to probation.
Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a "voting rights" rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama's reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson's lionization by Sharpton and the organization that sponsored the rally demonstrates how the Justice Department is facilitating a culture of brazen criminality on the eve of the 2014 midterm elections.
An Ohio poll worker who said she voted twice for President Obama is under investigation by election officials in Hamilton County (Cincinnati).
Critics of voter ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they're unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent, likening it to being struck by lightning. 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.
