As a Hamilton County poll worker, Melowese Richardson helped people exercise a precious right.

Today, because she voted illegally in the name of others, including one who was in a coma, she was sentenced five years in prison. Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman could have imposed the maximum prison sentence of six years after Richardson was convicted in May of four counts of illegal voting in exchange for prosecutors dropping four other charges.

That IMO is a pretty strong deterrent.

Whenever any steps are suggested to eliminate a means to commit voter fraud, it always seems to be a Democrat(Liberal) that says we don't need it, or it might disenfranchise someone from voting that is not ineligible to vote, even if it is created in a way not to disenfranchise anyone.

If Voter ID were in place she wouldn't be going to jail. Prevention is always better than punishment.

Without voter ID being required to vote, how would you catch someone not stupid enough to admit doing it?

She became the third person convicted this year of illegal voting in Hamilton County.

The other two – Sister Marguerite Kloos, 55, of Delhi Township, and Russell Glossop, 76, of Symmes Township – were given diversion. That means if they follow the judges’ orders and do nothing wrong in the next year or so, they likely will have their cases expunged and will be allowed to vote again.


The difference between them and Richardson is they voted for a deceased roommate, in the nun’s case, and a deceased spouse while Richardson was convicted of illegal voting in three different elections and essentially said early in the investigation she had and asked what authorities were going to do about it.


Three others also have pending charges of illegal voting in Hamilton County.
That's six separate cases in one county and these are only the ones that got caught.

No any attempt to vote twice is criminal. She didn't get away with both votes.

HAHA... I'm glad to see this. This "low information" cheater thought it was just fine to do what she did. Seems to be a common thought process among the Left.
They are pathological liars at their core essence. Its a prerequisite trait to join the club of collectivist-statist communists. Thats why we have all of these scandalous frauds coming by the cargo load from the top dog down. Fast 7 Furious to Benghazi to the Illegal Surveillance to the doctored birth documents.

It was more than two votes in single election and she admitted to doing this since 2008.

How exactly do you think she would have been prevented if voter ID were in place? It's not as if she went to the polls to vote on these people's behalfs.
