This week, an election official in Hamilton County has admitted that in November, she actually cast two votes for Obama.
Melowese Richardson, a Democrat poll worker told local media that she cast one vote for Obama on an absentee ballot, and then another at the Madisonville Recreation Center where she was worked on Election Day.
But, she insists that she has done nothing wrong.
Channel 9 reported:
According to county documents, Richardson’s absentee ballot was accepted on Nov. 1, 2012 along with her signature. On Nov. 11, she told an official she also voted at a precinct because she was afraid her absentee ballot would not be counted in time.
“There’s absolutely no intent on my part to commit voter fraud,” said Richardson. . . .
The board’s documents also state that Richardson was allegedly disruptive and hid things from other poll workers on Election Day after another female worker reported she was intimidated by Richardson. . . .
During the investigation it was also discovered that her granddaughter, India Richardson, who was a first time voter in the 2012 election, cast two ballots in November.
Richardson proudly professes her loyalty to the president and plans to contest the charges: "I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States."
Richardson is due in court for a hearing on February 22.
As for her granddaughter, Channel 9 also reported:
Documents show when India was contacted on Jan. 17 concerning the two ballots, she denied voting absentee.
She stated, "No, my grandmother filled that out and voted my ballot because she didn't think I would go do it, but I did. I voted provisionally at my polling place on Election Day," according to the report.
Richardson admitted to sending one of her granddaughter's ballots in the mail.
"I did let her know that I was getting the absentee ballot for her and sending it in. I had to get her Social Security number for that. I assumed she forgot or was just excited and she went to the polls herself," said Richardson.
Currently, the Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating several other cases of alleged voter in the 2012 presidential election.
Widespread voter fraud was alleged throughout Ohio, shortly after the election. In fact, it is believed that one out of every five voters in the Buckeye state is actually ineligible to cast a vote.
The Columbus Dispatch reported:
In two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting-age population: Northwestern Ohio's Wood County shows 109 registered voters for every 100 eligible, while in Lawrence County along the Ohio River it's a mere 104 registered per 100 eligible.
Another 31 counties show registrations at more than 90 percent of those eligible, a rate regarded as unrealistic by most voting experts. The national average is a little more than 70 percent.
[...]Of the Buckeye State's 7.8 million registered voters, nearly 1.6 million are regarded as "inactive."
Obama won Ohio by a relatively narrow margin of 100,000 votes.
