Ohio woman indicted for vote fraud in 2012 and previous elections

Last month we talked about an Ohio poll worker named Melowese Richardson who was under investigation for casting two votes for Barack Obama — an accusation she proudly admitted was true — along with other instances of vote fraud.

On Monday, the Hamilton Country prosecutor announced the culmination of several investigations. Richardson said she was fighting “for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.” Now she’s fighting to stay out of prison for a long time:

The Hamilton County Prosecutor announced charges of voter fraud against three people.Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said he was pursuing charges against Russell Glassop, 75, Melowese Richardson, 59, and Sister Marguerite Kloos, 54.A grand jury indicted Glassop and Kloos for one count of illegal voting each, a felony. Glassop and Kloos could face up to 18 months in prison if convicted.The grand jury indicted Richardson on eight counts of illegal voting. If convicted, she faces up to 12 years in prison.

More from Fox News:

Officials charged that she voted in her own name by absentee ballot and also in person at the polls, but Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney Joseph Deters said she also is charged with voting in the name of five other people in various elections.

If convicted, Richardson can always hope for that “last day in office pardon” from Obama as a thank-you for the effort, although she might not want to count on it.

Another person indicted for vote fraud is Marguerite Kloos — who is a nun — but ironically Richardson’s the one who seems to have turned the practice into a habit. Quick, click play now:

A thousand apologies. I blame the dizzying switch to daylight savings time.
