Now this grabbed my attention. I've heard of a number of cases around the nation of individual people being charged and sometimes convicted of Vote fraud and outright defrauding the process by voting multiple times or under false identification.

However, this isn't just anyone.


She admitted voting twice in the presidential election last November, and now, Obama supporter Melowese Richardson has been indicted for allegedly voting at least six times. She also is charged with illegal voting in 2008 and 2011.
The 58-year-old veteran Cincinnati poll worker, indicted Monday, faces eight counts of voter fraud. Two others, one of whom is a nun, have been charged separately.
(Emphasis Mine)

Now just how unbiased and effective could she have been as a worker at the polling place, for keeping anything like a clean process....when she was busy defrauding the system and committing Vote Fraud herself? It boggles the mind to think we can trust anything out of that precinct for results.


The Hamilton County Board of Elections recently held hearings on cases of possible double voting and voter fraud, part of a statewide review ordered by Secretary of State John Husted. He called on all 88 counties to review complaints of fraud, as well as voter disenfranchisement.
Sourc e

Perhaps this inquiry is serious and will lead to some light being directed on the funny business of the 2012 elections. It happened on both sides, as a video on election day showed an electronic machine in one location voting for Romney outside of a tiny hot spot area for Obama. That was pure manipulation of hot spot configuration on the touch screen...and so investigation does need to happen without prejudice for which color or side looks bad by it.

Let the chips and fraud fall where it may and clean this crap up before we become the laughing stock of the world....not a system to look toward.

Each election seems to have grown steadily worse for questions and doubts among the past several....eh?

Surely exposing this fraud will eject Obama out of office. No questions asked.


The thing is election fraud has happened and will happen. Nothing new.

Some are more aggravated(which is normal) by it when their team loses, whatever the color that is.

Yep ... saw that. She's probably one of a whole lotta' people around the country engaging in voter fraud. If voting were to happen with accurate results without any fraud or disenfranchisement happening ... I think we'd all be shocked at the difference from the results that are reported ....

Which is why their should be voter id laws in every state. Show your voter card, with picture when you vote, its scanned and if you try to use it again at another station, laser guns pop out and disintegrate you.

It's not about challenging the 2012 result. That's impossible and a moot point on anything across the national level. I'm not aware of anyone even trying, let alone suggesting.

However, I think the 'it's just a crappy system.. gotta live with it' approach of showing no real concern when true fraud is uncovered is how it CAME to be so crappy in the first place. The clean up has to start somewhere and neither side will look good by the time it's done.

At least if something were started now, it's far enough out from 2016 to not claim it's to the benefit of any specific person. Who knows how that race shapes up? The reform time is right after the last one......IMO.

Yep there was a thread about a similar article on this here:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

There was a woman charged with voting what? 6 times? She got caught though. But the thing that many people frothing over this are forgetting, this fraud happened in Ohio, one of the States with voter ID laws enforced. I think it's a given that you are going to find incidences of fraud in each election, it's an inevitability. There is always room for improving our system, but by the sounds of it, these improvements need to be done more so internally than externally.

Surely its 2013.... why can't we just insert our Driver's License or some ID in the voting Booth and vote. Any duplicates will be sorted for further investigation?

Edit: of course have 2-3 stand alone computers that calculates and identifies, just incase of a 1% error/failure by the initial computer.

I don't know if I would call it 'getting caught'.

She was stupid enough to let it slip on camera that she did it. The authorities were obliged to charge her, since the evidence of her crime was her bragging about it on a video that went viral.

That even makes it more interesting, since she was working at the polling place on election day. (according to the link that you provided)

Umm. Shes a poll worker. I doubt that any voter ID law is going to stop someone who actually works at the polls.

Thats all.

-Oh and to the OP- this doesnt suprise me in the least.

The voting process needs an overhaul.

Democrats don't need fraud anymore. Come 2016 they will have created a massive permanent voting block with the welfare and immigration people.

Done deal. Nobody but a democrat will ever see the inside of the WH again regardless of what you do.

Better just surrender and spend the money somewhere else.

Yes, Republican politicians don't fraud, they are bunch of people with good god fearing attitude.

Knew someone would bring out the political bias-ness.

No it didn't, which was my point. Voter fraud is rare, and in the cases it does happen it is mostly due to administrative errors or fraud. When we talk about in-person voter fraud, that is rare, because there are limited to what one person can do to vote multiple times, it is also risky. Voter fraud is far more damaging and common internally, among corrupted poll workers, administrators. This is specifically why many of these voter ID laws have been criticized, because they don't do much to address incidences of voter fraud, rather they're used as a tool by politicians. I'm glad you get it.

Brought out the political aspect because its relevant.

Do a quick search and you will see that democrat fraud, charges and convictions, are about 50-1. Either republicans don't do it as much or they are smarter about it.

Your pick.

I live just outside of Cincinnati and can tell you that has been going on all over the state for years. There is a reason both parties vie for Ohio, if you get Ohio you win. Money buys everything. Plus someone else posted about how Ohio had early ballots in and Obama was way out in front. Like I said I like in the state and don't know of anyone that sent in a early ballot. They said they had 3 million already or something crazy like that.

What do you think will happen from this? Absolutely nothing at all. Next person up.

Well telling 47% of the Voters, you have nothing to offer them sure leaves an Uphill battle.

More related to the Op, Voter ID is needed, coupled with Firmer Penalties for People who commit Voter Fraud.

I'm not sure about your "50-1" ratio of fraud committed between Democratic and Republican voters (I'd love to see a source if you have one) but to me voter fraud is voter fraud, regardless of who it's committed by. There have been reports of Republicans committing fraud, it happens on both sides, Republicans do it too:


Roxanne Rubin, 56, a casino worker on the Las Vegas Strip, was arrested on Nov. 3, 2012 after trying to vote twice, once at her poling site in Henderson and then at a second site in Las Vegas. The poll workers at the second site said that she had already voted, but Rubin said that she hadn't and insisted on casting a ballot, which the poll workers refused to allow her to do.

www.huffingtonpost.com...


Two former employees of the consulting firm Strategic Allied Consulting, whose head Nathan Sproul has a history of legal issues as well as ties to the Republican Party, admitted to law enforcement that they committed voter fraud, the Associated Press reports.

Will do.

Thanks for the advice.

If she's not a delegate her vote is worthless and always will be. The electoral college decides who becomes president, not the citizens.

Ummmmm, isn't that the talking point you Progressives used BEFORE the election?

Just to make myself clear, here is a list of people CONVICTED of voting fraud who worked for ACORN!

Table of Election Fraud Convictions

Now keep in mind, these are just people who GOT CAUGHT AND CONVICTED...........

So paint it any way you wish, the fact of the matter is that it happens and as advanced as we are why can't we find ways such as printed receipts to each voter, and at the end the receipts have to match the final tally or heads will roll?
