6 votes for Obama

| February 19, 2013

Fox News reports that one woman, Melowese Richardson, in Cincinnati may have voted six times and she’s one of 19 people being investigated, but don’t worry, she says while admitting the six votes, that she did so without meaning to defraud anyone;

Richardson claimed she had submitted an absentee ballot, but was afraid her vote would not count so she also voted in person. She also said she voted in the name of her granddaughter and yet another person.

“There was absolutely no intent on my part to commit any voter fraud,” she insisted.

So she was worried that her vote wouldn’t count so she made sure that five other people’s votes didn’t count, either. Nice.

“I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States,” Richardson vowed when asked about the voter fraud investigation that is now under way.

So, Obama’s right to be president (looking for that right in the Bill of Rights now) supersedes the right of the rest of us to have a vote. Ok, thanks, Melowese.

    And yet they still say we don’t need voter registrations cards to prevent this.

  2. Hondo says:

    Whitey_wingnut: voter registration cards alone are not sufficient, amigo. Most I’ve seen have no photo. Add a fake ID and, well, . . . .

    What’s needed is a system that (1) conclusively proves identity, and (2) proves eligibility to vote. The latter could easily be done by a properly-designed system in real time after identity is proven.

    There are any number of ways (1) could be accomplished. But many of the most easily implemented would likely lead to ACLU objections based on questionable claims of “invasion of privacy”.

  3. Whitey_wingnut says:

    I agree, if the voter id card had a scanner with photo included already on it, it wouldn’t be a problem. Yes they do need to system set up to stop this, but as long as the ACLU is out to make matters worst it won’t happen.

  4. Twist says:

    Add in the fact that she was a poll worker and hid the supplemental list of voters who have already voted absentee in the precinct. She knew exactly what she was doing.

  5. UpNorth says:

    I wonder how many relatives she let vote more than once, to make sure their vote counted? This is one precinct, wonder how many times this was repeated, in Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan?
    Checking her picture, she bears a remarkable resemblance to Maxine Waters D-Stupidity.

  6. Harrison says:

    It all evens out. I’ll take the over any day on how many “Tyrone Jacksons” were aggressively disenfranchised because there’s one doing a felony murder rap.

    Under is a lock on the number of “Todd Smith’s” that happened to, though.

  7. rb325th says:

    @6 yup, because whitey be holdin them down …. take your race card and shove it up your 4th point of contact. We have had enough of the left trying to bully us shut us up with race baiting rhetoric.

  8. B Woodman says:

    A “purple thumb” would be a good measure to start with.

  9. Ex-PH2 says:

    I demand a vote recount.

  10. LanceCooley says:

    I said it from the get go: Rigged. Election.

  11. Reaperman says:

    @8 I’m a fan of the voting ink too, but as was pointed out to me last time I mentioned it, it’s the absentee college d-bags that do a lot of this kind of thing. They vote where they’re from and also where they go to school.

  12. Hondo says:

    Harrison: you do realize that you’re justifying blatant fraud by equating it to past misconduct or error committed by others, right? Which logically implies that by justifying the latter you are implicitly accepting both behaviors as being acceptable?

    Sheesh – even Sippy and Joe the Rock Climber aren’t usually that blatantly asinine in their comments here.

    Ex-PH2: at this point, ain’t gonna happen.

  13. Scubasteve says:

    She’s obviously not military overseas, so I’m pretty sure her absentee vote counted.

  14. Ex-PH2 says:

    @Hondo: I know. It was wishful thinking on my part.

  15. Twist says:

    I believe I read somewhere that certain districts in Philly had 110% voter turn out and not a single vote cast for Romney. I could be wrong though, it was a while ago and my memory is a little fuzzy.

  16. Old Trooper says:

    Is anyone surprised by her statements? I’m not, because she’s not the only one who thinks like that. Most leftists believe that the ends justify the means and they see nothing wrong with electioneering in order to get the person they feel is the one who should hold any elected position. They do it through massive voter registration fraud, intimidation (NBPP in Philly), fighting against voter ID, or just plain multiple votes. Yet, they don’t hesitate to project what they’re doing onto the other party and claim that they are being “disenfranchised”, when it is they, who are willfully engaging in disenfranchising the law abiding voters in this country.

  17. Old Trooper says:

    @15: No, you are correct. There was actually one district where it was 138% turnout and not a single vote cast for Romney.

  18. Old 21B says:

    Gotta love the statement “There was absolutely no intent on my part to commit any voter fraud” makes as much sense as if a kid that broke out the windshield of a sports car and were caught joyriding saying “There was absolutely no intent on my part to steal an automobile.”

  19. A Proud Infidel says:

    But the accusations are against B. Hussein Øbama & Party, so that automatically makes it “racist”. If the left is so dedicated to honest elections, then why their repeated assault on Military Absentee Ballots?

  20. PintoNag says:

    @15…110% voter turnout. Huh.

    Now, somebody tell me again why we’re all supposed to get out and vote?

  21. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    If I could, I’d reinstitute both a poll tax and a literacy requirement. Then, I’d require each qualifying voter to answer 10 very basic questions regarding US government. The passing score would be 10 out of 10. Though I like to kid, I am not kidding about this.

  22. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    It’s bad enough when a moron who thinks a particular person is entitled by right to be president, but when that same moron votes multiple times, it’s an abomination. This stuff gets me so pissed off I need to get a heavy bag. It’s cheaper than repairing drywall all the damn time.

  23. 3C3P says:

    #21- would love to have a “voting test” myself and you must score 100% to vote. Might help rid the country of low information voters.

  24. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    I don’t understand what the issue is with providing a government issued ID card. No ID no voting….how the hell someone gets to vote 6 times is beyond me.

  25. LanceCooley says:

    #22- That got me too; who the hell are you to say he has a “right” to be POTUS?

  26. Old Tanker says:

    Twist, Old Trooper

    I knew I read about many precints in Philly without a single vote for Romney. Most had zero votes for McCain in ’08 too. I hadn’t heard of the over 100% turnout though.

  27. Ooid says:

    When I was younger, I used to joke that people should vote early, often and twice (the twice part being the joke to clarify for the morally challenged). Now this person, not believing that the candidate she supported could win on his own merit, not only voted for him six times but also covered it up using her position as a poll worker. She admitted to what she did but denies it was voter fraud? It’s the very definition of voter fraud! I say send her to jail (or at the very least fine her) and definitely NEVER let her vote again…clearly she cannot be trusted.

  28. Hondo says:

    VOV: voting multiple times would be easy as hell if you can get your hands on some absentee ballots, amigo. All you have to do is fill them out and mail them in. Pretty hard to get caught unless you’re stupid enough to mail a bunch in all at the same time so that someone notices the similar handwriting.

    And yeah – absentee ballot fraud does happen, and sometimes swings elections:


    It’s not as hypothetically easy, but voting multiple times is also eminently do-able in a major metro area if you (1) know a few folks won’t be voting (e.g., mentally incompetent, hospitalized, simply don’t care, etc . . . ), and (2) can get some info about them. Many jurisdictions don’t require a photo ID. If someone shows up and claims to be “John Doe” at a particular address and knows enough other info, they just check the person off the list of voters and let them vote. While that might be risky in a rural area where people know each other (and the polling officials might know you’re not “John Doe”), that risk becomes quite small in a major metro area with multiple precincts. The limit would be how many early/regular polling stations someone could visit during operating hours.

    And yeah – that happens sometimes, too. Except in the following example, the fool was stupid enough to try and do so twice using their own name:


  29. PintoNag says:

    It looks like the deck is being stacked against us. They control the media and the voting booths.

    Suggestions, anyone?

  30. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @29. “They control the media and the voting booths.” And the police and the military. They can pass laws of all sorts, too. As a matter of fact, if one leaves out minds, hearts, and many guns, they control damn near everything.

  31. Hack Stone says:

    Melowese Richardson has two sisters, one named Bronkitis Richardson, and the other Azmah Richardson.

  32. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @31. Five will get you 10 the name came from the maternity room menu. Mellow cheese was on it. You know, there’s at least one generation that doesn’t know a time when names weren’t just made up from thin air, a TV commercial, or taken from a singer of Hollywood type who made up their own name.
