She could go to prison for up to six years “for Mister Obama.” Cincinnati.com reports:
Long-time Hamilton County poll worker Melowese Richardson was convicted Monday of illegal voting and could go to prison for up to six years for it.
Richardson, 58, of Madisonville, pleaded no contest to four counts of illegal voting – including voting three times for a relative who has been in a coma since 2003 – in exchange for prosecutors dropping four other illegal voting charges. Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman immediately convicted her, making her a felon.
A Hamilton County poll worker since 1998, Richardson admitted she voted illegally in the 2008, 2011 and 2012 elections.
Recall Richardson’s original on-camera statement that the multiple votes she cast “for Mister Obama and for Mister Obama’s right to sit as President of the United States” were “absolutely legal votes.”
Now that Richardson has acknowledged her crime, will federal charges finally be filed?
