´I wanted my vote to count´:
Ohio poll worker explains why
she voted for Obama TWICE

Daily Mail [UK], by Beth Stebner

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/20/2013 6:03:08 AM

An Ohio woman is one of 19 people in a single southwestern county who may have heeded the seedy advice to ‘vote early and vote often.’ Melowese Richardson, who lives in Cincinnati, told a local television station that she voted twice because she ‘certainly wanted my vote to count.’ The grandmother is one of 19 people being investigated by Hamilton County over voter fraud in the recent 2012 election.[Snip]The Hamilton County Board of Election’s director, Amy Searcy, told MailOnline that a certain amount of ‘anomalies’ pop up during every election. This year, she said, there were more than 80.

Comments:
Poll worker for 25 years but votes absentee and then in person. I wonder how many times she´s double-voted and this is simply the first time she´s been caught? And I wonder how many other people she´s persuaded to do the same?

Maybe Karl Rove´s time and money would be better spent fighting off liars and fraudelent voters than coming after the Tea Party.

Even in Texas, voting precincts in liberal Democrat/hispanic districts are rife with voter fraud. I know someone from one of those districts whose father was a state politician (D) and she admitted it. "Vote early and often" is taken literally in these districts everywhere. It´s rampant and it´s tilting elections. The media throws dirt over it by calling it a "ground game". It´s really called breaking the law and stealing elections.

How about the fraudster poll worker who voted 8 different times? Demonrats are the biggest liars when they say there is no voter fraud. You can bet both fraudsters remain as poll workers.

There are probably enough ‘anomalies’ in various polling districts in lots of states to change the election. I´m not holding my breath.

The voters being disenfranchised are the honest ones - like us. I would like to see early voting eliminated.

Since the vehicle for voter fraud in Ohio was the fact that millions of absentee ballots were mailed out it is clear that dems who showed up at the polling places all voted at least twice.

Once in person and again when their absentee ballot was counted

Ohio was stolen.

Actually, this news is old.
The update is that Miz Mellowese VOTED SIX (6) TIMES.
Besides the two votes for herself, she prepared, signed, and mailed in absentee ballots for two family members (as demonstrated by signatures matching her handwriting, and the fact that all 3 absentee ballots were mailed and received together). And then she voted "in person" for those 2 family members (again signing the book in their name)

So, WE KNOW that this one woman voted AT LEAST 6 times. And I´m sure those votes were for President Free Cellphone.
Punishment? Likely none. If anything serious, I´m sure she´ll get a presidential pardon, if not a plaque.

And Republicans are just being paranoid and silly about election theft?

There should be a way to utilize a person´s SS number to keep them voting once. I think E-verify has a national database.When you get a job,you have to have all kinds of proof you´re a citizen but not with voting,it´s crazy.

I´m sure some groups will come to this woman´s defense saying republicans are trying to suppress the black vote using cherry picked cases.

This country is lost and it is too late to save it. We lost it long ago when we first started to accept lies and political correctness as truth. Since the 1960´s it has been a race to the bottom in every facet of American life. We looked for the lowest common denominator, found it, and elevated it to a place our hero´s and statesmen once occupied.

It is now becoming so apparent that our rulers, the Washington/MSM establishment, can no longer conceal it from anyone with two brain cells. The problem is that after generations of dumbing down our population (with our consent, by the way) not too many people have 2 brain cells.

My advice is to relax and enjoy the ride. If you can. It is going to be interesting.

I think you´re right, #10. Every registered Ohio voter received an absentee ballot application. Anyone who wanted to cheat could fill out the app, wait for the ballot to arrive in the mail, and then vote once at home and once at the polls.
Ohio--the must win state for both sides--was stolen.
The solution? Voters have to treat Obama as the illegitimate president that he is. Stop him at every turn. Don´t give an inch. Turn your back. Let him cry wolf until he´s hoarse.
In time, the Goerge Soros crowd will realize that cheating to win doesn´t win you much.

Even photo ID might not be enough to stop these Democrat criminals. This woman is ignorant, but no doubt believes that the end justifies the means in electing her messiah. This does demonstrate that fraud is how Democrats win most elections, and very likely did in Obama´s re-election.

If so, he could possibly be the most brilliant political strategist since Hitler, Stalin and Mao. And he didn´t even have to send anyone to the death chambers...yet!

In general, left wingers believe that the ends justify the means.

I recall in HS History in the early 1960s, when my (usually right wing ) history teachers would tell us about the dreaded communists and pinkos who believed so much in the righteousness of their cause that they were willing to to lie, cheat,(murder?) - anything in order to achieve it. I recall not questioning those allegations at the time - and it turns out anyway that the teachers were correct.

Just a personal opinion, but I truly believe that this type of fraud calls for capital punishment.

Think of what they are doing...when someone like Obama wins, how many military get killed? How many civilians (think Benghazi and Gun free zones)?

If not capital crime, life in solitary and no parole. Seriously...

If the voter fraud did not benefit the liberal Democrats by a percentage of about 99.9% you can bet that they would be all for a requirement that government issued photo ID be issued to and presented by all voters.

You have to also blame the wimpy Republicans for most of this voter fraud as over the years they usually went along to get along with the liberal Democrats for fear of the liberal Democrats calling them out as racists, as the liberal Democrats continuously liberalized and streamlined the voting process with motor voter, absentee, and early voting that makes it so easy for people to vote a number of times both by absentee ballot and in person, probably most of the time in different local locations, and different cities and states.

What amazes me is that this woman thought that she did the right thing. When you vote in Ohio two things must happen. First, you must have a valid photo ID. Second, you must turn in the absentee ballot that you received in the mail. If you can´t do both, you don´t vote until you do.

The Russian bear--exemplified by President Vladimir Putin--is wounded. As we know, animals are then at their most dangerous. In the diplomatic arena, there are many ways to deal with such a situation, but the least recommendable is bluster. That, unfortunately, is the one employed by the West’s notional leader, Barack Obama. [Snip] Not surprisingly, Putin disregarded this amorphous threat. Last year, Commander-in-Chief Obama had declared that if Russia’s ally President Assad of Syria used chemical weapons against his own citizens, it would cross a ‘red line’; and then demonstrated he had no desire to enforce it, by passing the buck

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

US officials have reportedly told Israel to stop killing off Iranian nuclear scientists. Israel Moussad spy agancy has supposedly taken out at least five top Iranian nuclear experts in an attempt to slow the country’s nuclear program and continues to do so despite recent agreements reached to end the country’s nuclear ambitions.

At 302ft, it is the world’s longest aircraft. That’s longer than the Airbus A380 airliner and almost as long as Big Ben is high. But that is not the HAV304’s main claim to fame. It is a hybrid aircraft – part plane and part airship. It is also almost 30ft (8m) longer than the airlift cargo aircraft Antonov An-225, which was until now the longest aircraft ever built. The giant aircraft is being displayed at Cardington in Bedfordshire in the only hangar big enough to accommodate the 113ft (34m) wide and 85ft (26m) high beast.

Millions of patients wait as long as three weeks to see their GP, a Daily Mail survey reveals today. Only one in three manages to secure a same-day appointment, despite Government promises to make such slots routinely available. One in five cannot get a consultation within seven days. The survey suggests that two million adults wait between two and three weeks to see a doctor and half a million suffer a delay of three or four weeks. Leading GPs say the figures reflect their struggle to meet the demands of a growing population with ever larger numbers of pensioners.

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he
