The voter apple in this
to have landed pretty close to its tree, as ignorance & transparent con-artistry are virtuous? 2012 poll 'worker' Melowese Richardson subscribes to
the more-is-better doctrine:
It seems that President Obama has an especially ardent supporter in the veteran Ohio poll worker.
"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
"I'll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama's right to sit as president of the United States…"

Richardson's granddaughter, India Richardson, confirmed to Fox News that her grandmother voted for her, by submitting an absentee ballot in her name.
India told Fox News that she is not angry, and gave her permission to cast her absentee ballot.
"It wasn't a big deal," she said.

...exactly, all the way to the top—just look what happened with Bush-Gore in 2000.
Granted this is from the FoxNews site & its not lost on me that I'm favoring yellow journalism & zealot rhetoric over Thought Police censorship;
regardless, I hope that the absurdity of this situation elicits more chuckles than discontent. There's also a few others mentioned & ~2-min. video on
