Ohio woman being investigated for possibly casting two six votes for Obama in 2012 election

Earlier this month we talked about an Ohio woman — a poll worker no less — who admits to voting for President Obama twice in the November election.

As an update to that story, when Melowese Richardson admitted to voting twice for Obama, it’s possible she was just being humble:

Authorities also are investigating if she voted in the names of four other people, too, for a total of six votes in the 2012 presidential election.

“I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States,” Richardson vowed when asked about the voter fraud investigation that is now under way.

Richardson is one of 19 people suspected of illegal voting by the Hamilton County Board of Elections in the last election.
[...]
“It appears she not only attempted to vote more than once, but was actually successful at it and having those additional votes counted,” Ohio Secretary of State John Husted, who is in charge of the state’s elections, told Fox News.

“She appears to have used her position as a poll worker to cover her tracks. That would be someone who is an official in the elections process, using that position to commit a fraud. That is especially troubling to me, as the chief elections officer of the state, because it is my responsibility to make sure the system runs effectively, that it has integrity. When I find issues like this, I know that it undermines voter confidence in our elections, and we must pursue it.”

Three other absentee ballots in the names of different people were submitted to the Board of Elections from Richardson’s address on Nov. 1. Officials say the handwriting on those ballots is similar and that they were all received together, on the same day that Richardson’s absentee ballot arrived at the office. Richardson maintains that some of the other voters live at her house.

The Hamilton County Board of Elections will hold Richardson’s hearing this Friday.

Out of sheer curiosity I searched the websites of CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC, and there was no mention of this story — something that would no doubt be different if the candidate Richardson voted for multiple times had an R after his name instead of a D.
