Prosecuting Melowese Richardson for Obama voter fraud would help
Written by 

voteAmericans are learning more about rampant voter fraud in the last election. In Cincinnati, Ohio poll worker Melowese Richardson has admitted to voting more than once for President Obama. Richardson still has an Obama sign on her front lawn and is obviously not concerned with her lawbreaking. She told WCPO-TV, “Yes, I voted twice…after registering thousands of people, certainly wanted my vote to count, so….I voted at the polls.”



It seems that Richardson voted absentee and also voted at the polls. Investigators are looking into whether she may have voted for as many as four other people. When confronted by these allegations, Richardson claimed that “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.” Of course, Richardson does not understand that the best way to fight for your candidate is to vote legally and not bring negative attention to his campaign.

Richardson is not alone for the Hamilton County Board of Elections in Ohio is investigating 18 other people on charges of illegal voting.  When contacted by the media, several of the voter fraud suspects acted in an arrogant manner and seemed totally unconcerned about the impact of their actions.

This lawbreaking threatens our entire electoral system. It comes after reports have surfaced that voting in some precincts in Philadelphia, Chicago and other cities in the last presidential election featured no votes for Republican challenger Mitt Romney and 100% support for President Obama. In fact, in 59 precincts in Philadelphia, Romney failed to receive one vote. Overall, 500 people in Pennsylvania submitted complaints to the Secretary of the Commonwealth about voting irregularities. This is the same state that witnessed the emergence of officials of the New Black Panther Party at local polling places in the 2008 presidential election. After the threatening club wielding Black Panthers were not prosecuted by the Justice Department, it is no surprise that another Black Panther incident was reported in this election cycle.

It is time for our nation to get serious about voter fraud and demand a universal system of voter ID. It is unacceptable that we require identification to cash a check, drive, and rent a car, but not to vote.

Every time that Republicans attempt to pursue voter ID laws, Democrats cry foul and make unfounded charges of racism.  In reality, voters of all races should want free and fair elections. Sadly, our current electoral system is too flawed for the American people to be confident of the results.

In the meantime, all fraudulent voting should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Authorities should make an example out of Melowese Richardson, who compounded her crime because she committed it while working as a poll official.

Prosecuting Melowese Richardson and others on these serious crimes will be the only way to instill any type of voter confidence in our electoral system.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
