Looks like it's far more prevalent than you thought - this is just a tiny bit exposed.
A Cincinnati news agency is reporting that three Ohio voters have been charged with voting improperly. One is a nun who voted in place of her nun friend who died before the election. The nun is pleading guilty to the charge and is resigning her position.
Another, Melowese Richardson, 58, a long-time poll worker and (according to today’s broadcast on this story by Fox News) loyal Obama supporter, is charged with either eight or nine counts of voting for other people. They seem to have been mostly relatives of hers. Fox News also adds that she at first admitted to voting twice under her own name. The charges could earn her about 12 years in prison.
Officials in Ohio are not taking this sort of thing sitting down. Signaling a new, get-tough stance, it was reported:
“Board of Elections Director Amy Searcy said Richardson won’t be asked to come back.”
Call me cynical, but it seems that the foxes have been placed in charge of investigating the sudden disappearance of hens down at the coop, as the same entrenched political class (including officials elected in Ohio) that brought Melowese on board in the first place is conducting the investigation.
“Nothing to see here, folks. Move along, move along.”
Questions still linger about 50 voters who voted via absentee ballot but then also voted in person, on “provisional” ballots. Democrats on the Board of Elections assure us there’s nothing wrong with this, as the safeguards that are in place guarantee us that only one vote counted. Well, that’s comforting.
In all fairness, by casting eight or nine illegal votes (that we think we know of) Melowese is hardly a major player in the grand scheme of things. But free and fair elections is supposed to be comforting Political Theater in the same way that the TSA pat-downs and naked scans are supposed to make us feel secure. Once the illusion is gone, then it’s Katie-bar-the-door. I mean, who
Hey, Springer, I never said that there is no election fraud. What I did say was that showing an ID at a polling place won't stop most of the existing fraud. And perhaps you've helped to prove that. One woman that you describe (Richardson) was a poll worker. She did not need to show her ID to do what she wanted to do at the polling place. The nun that you mentioned (if she's the same one that I read about) voted for another nun using an absentee ballot. She didn't need to show her ID to do that either. Showing an ID at the polling place won't stop most voting fraud, but it will stop many legal citizens from casting their Constitutionally protected vote.
