Recently Sprung From Jail Vote Fraudster Melowese Richardson Given A Hero’s Welcome By Al Sharpton at OH “Voter Rights” Rally

There’s no such thing as voter fraud, Democrats like Al Sharpton will tell you — but the ones who get caught doing it are hailed as voting rights heroes — by Democrats like Al Sharpton..

Remember Obama’s most prolific voter, Melowese Richardson? A year ago, she was indicted on eight counts of illegal voting. She was sentenced to five years in prison, but was released earlier this month “after local Democratic activists pressed for a fairer term.” Someone explain to me how that works. “Democrat activists” can spring people from jail, now?

But it gets better — Ms. Richardson got a hero’s welcome from none other than Al Sharpton at a “voter rights” rally at a black church in Cincinnati, Thursday.

Via Cincinnati.com

A Hamilton County poll worker who has been held up nationally as an example of voter fraud took the stage at a local voting rights rally – outraging Republicans and dismaying even top local Democrats.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, keynote speaker at Thursday’s rally to kick-off the campaign for an Ohio Voters’ Bill of Rights Ohio Constitutional amendment, even hugged Melowese Richardson.

Richardson was among the more than 400 at Word of Deliverance Church in Forest Park when Cincinnati National Action Network President Bobby Hilton called her on stage for a “welcome home.”

What are they going to do, next? Have her working the polls again? (Eric Holder seen furiously nodding his head in approval.)

The article goes on to note, “even Democrat leaders questioned the idea of applauding Richardson.” Even some Democrats see the problem here. Well I’ll be damned.

“I am very glad the county prosecutor and judge reconsidered and got her out of jail, but she is not a hero,” Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke, who was at the rally, told the Enquirer. “What she did was criminal conduct and was particularly problematic because of her role as a poll worker.”

Hat tip: Weasel Zippers

Here’s Sharpton’s speech from the “voter rights” event.

Sharpton:

“Let me tell you, I don’t care what you know – if you afraid – it don’t matter. Fear cancels lives. Fear cancels abilities. And the reason some of us have been repressive, is because you afraid. You can’t send scared leaders to (inaudible)….If you scared say dat. It not you got some new strategy… It ain’t like you figgered out something we ain’t figgered out. Just say, “I’m scared, and sit down and shut up and let someone that’s not scared do what needs to be done. If you scared, they aint no one gonna beat you because you too afraid to fight…They intimidated and wuffed you out of the fight.”

WTF?

Dude. We just want to see some ID before you vote. Daaang.

UPDATE:

J. Christian Adams, Big Government: NO JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CHARGES AGAINST OHIO WOMAN WHO VOTED SIX TIMES FOR OBAMA:

 The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection.

Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President.  In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by Sharpton and the organization that sponsored the rally demonstrates how the Justice Department is facilitating a culture of brazen criminality on the eve of the 2014 midterm elections.  The failure to indict Richardson is the latest example of Holder’s department excusing lawlessness in federal elections and abandoning law abiding Americans.

Melowese Richardson was charged with state voter fraud crimes in Ohio.  She was found guilty and sentenced to five years in prison on July 7, 2013. Unfortunately, instead of serving five years, Richardson was set free after only eight months.

A state court judge dismissed her May 2013 conviction and five-year prison sentence and allowed her to plead no contest to four counts of illegal voting, the same charges for which she was convicted.

Richardson was represented by the George Soros-funded Ohio Justice and Policy Center, which claimed she suffered from bi-polar disorder.  No claim was made that she was insane when she committed her election crimes.  Nor was any effort made to establish her insanity.

 

New Project Veritas Video: Battleground Texas Illegally Copying Voter Data

In James O’Keefe’s latest sting in Texas, he catches the community organizing group Battleground Texas breaking Texas election law.

As PJ Media’s J Christian Adams explains, “the group registers voters as deputy registrars, illegally copies information from voter registration forms, and then cranks the illegal information into the Wendy Davis campaign for Texas governor.”

Battleground Texas Field Organizer Jennifer Longoria is caught on camera multiple times making statements such as, “So every time we register someone to vote we keep their name and number.” Which is of course – illegal.

” According to the Secretary of State, it is unlawful to transcribe, copy, or otherwise record a telephone number furnished on a voter registration application.”

“Battleground Texas, is the new ACORN”, O’Keefe explains in the video:

Bryan Preston: How the Texas Tribune Will Cover James O’Keefe’s Latest Video:

The Texas Tribune is a non-profit news gathering organization that bills itself as non-partisan. It has come under serious and sustained criticism recently for getting a sweetheart deal to cover a fundraiser and speech by Democrat gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. The news content it generates is syndicated all over Texas, for free, to local news outlets, which calls into question its non-profit status — it’s not supposed to be in competition with for-profit news organizations.

When it comes to hidden camera video that makes Democrats and their allies look bad, the Tribune consistently handles such videos in a backhanded way.

PJ Media: MOTIVE: Sebelius Pitches Obamacare to Latino … Voter Registration Group:

On Friday, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius spoke and took questions on Obamacare in an online forum sponsored by Voto Latino. This group primarily exists for the purpose of encouraging Hispanics to register to vote, but it additionally advocates for leftist causes. From their website:

In 10 years and with your support, we have engaged and developed the leadership skills of Latino Millennials; registered nearly a quarter million voters; rallied for immigration reform; ensured our community got counted in the 2010 Census and enrolled in the new healthcare law; and together, we have fought against laws that would make it harder for Latinos to vote.

They are using ObamaCare to encourage likely Democrats to register to vote (possibly illegally) and they are doing it in the open. Disgusting.

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Wendy Davis Supporters, Battleground TX Belittle Greg Abbott For Being Wheelchair Bound (Video)

While investigating Obamacare Navigators, Battleground Texas, and their connection to Obama’s Organizing for America, Project Veritas caught some “deeply offensive comments on tape.”

When I first saw the headline for this, I thought – surely not. Surely they’re exaggerating.

You tell me.

“Greg Abbott (The Attorney General of Texas) is not, he’s really not a sure thing, and he’s really not real electable. First of all he’s not good looking, he doesn’t speak very well, he doesn’t have a good personality, and he’s in a wheelchair.”

They even explore the possibility that he has a personality disorder because he “he has no sympathy for anyone or anyway.” Keep in mind these are supporters of a candidate who lashed out at the affable Abbott because of a news report he had nothing to do with. There’s plenty of fodder for a discussion on  “personality disorders” if you take a good look at Wendy Davis’ checkered past.

No Project Veritas video would be complete without some exposition of left-wing corruption.

But that’s not it. When asked about forging signatures on absentee ballots, Deputy Voter Registrar and attorney Lisa Wortham covered her ears and then went on to admit, “I’ve seen people do that all the time.” Battleground Texas volunteer Celeste Grahm then added, “I don’t think it’s legal but I didn’t hear you say that.”

That’s right. Cheating is the only way these losers can win Texas. That’s why supporting the work groups like True the Vote and Project Veritas do, is so important. They do the work the MSM should be doing –  shining a light on corruption and fraud.

Fox News: Conservative activist O’Keefe claims Cuomo targeting his group:

O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas is behind a series of hidden-camera investigations against left-leaning groups and causes, made the claims on the heels of the controversy over a recent Cuomo interview. In it, Cuomo blasted “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” and said they “have no place” in New York. He later walked back his remarks, and said they were being taken out of context in the media.

But O’Keefe claimed that Cuomo’s government is acting on those words, revealing that the Department of Labor has hit his office in Westchester County, N.Y., with demands for financial documents for months. He compared it to IRS targeting of conservative groups nationwide.

“Governor Cuomo’s shocking words this past week aren’t simply words,” O’Keefe said in a statement. “Governor Cuomo and the New York Department of Labor are on a witch hunt, demanding all documents and financials since our founding. … His goal, of course, is to harass us and limit our effectiveness by tying us up in court. Just like President Obama used the IRS to target and suppress conservatives, Governor Cuomo is using his Department of Labor to do the same exact thing.”

COLORADO SPRINGS RECALL ELECTION OF DEMOCRAT JOHN MORSE GETS UNDER WAY WITH EARLY VOTING STARTING

The Colorado  vote to recall two state Democrats who angered voters earlier this year when they helped pass draconian gun control bills, is in full swing with long lines and what elections officials called “surprisingly high turnouts”.

Yesterday marked the first day of voting in the recall election of Democrat State Senator John Morse as more than 3,500 voters from his El Paso County Senate district headed to the polls. Polls in Pueblo Democrat Senator Angela Giron’s recall opened, last week.

The Denver Post reports:

Funded in part by the National Rifle Association and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose group Mayors Against Illegal Guns played a pivotal role in the gun legislation that passed in the past session, both sides of the recalls have been furiously working these final days to get supporters to the polls.

If Morse and Giron are recalled, two Republican candidates, Bernie Herpin of El Paso County and George Rivera of Pueblo, will take their place in the state Senate.

Conservative blog, Revealing Politics has been on the ground with cameras everywhere. If there is voter fraud going on in Colorado – they are capturing it.

Just before the end of the first day of early voting in the Colorado recall election of Senate President John Morse, some college age students showed up with 10 ballots in hand, each.

Our team hit the field running for the first day of our “Recall Transparency Project” and although there were lots of highlights (check our feed here) there are a few notable moments:

Our awesome field guy Jim got the cops called on him.

Two REALLY EXCITED recall voters were so excited to be at the polls they backed into each other.

 

82% Of Whites, 83% Of Non-Whites Support Voter ID According to Latest Poll

Attention Eric Holder:

 

Via John Fund,National Review:

Last week, Hillary Clinton used a speech to the American Bar Association to rail against states that are requiring voters show a photo ID before they vote. She called ID requirements part of “the greatest hits of voter suppression,” but she was ignoring evidence that minority turnout has gone up in states with even the toughest ID laws, even in elections where Barack Obama isn’t on the ballot.

Civil-rights activists are often of two minds on voter ID. Last year, when the NAACP hosted Attorney General Eric Holder at its annual convention, one of the requirements to cover his speech was that “all media must present government-issued photo I.D. (such as a driver’s license).” Meanwhile, NAACP president Ben Jealous introduced Holder by attacking ID laws.

“We must overwhelm the rising tide of voting suppression,” he said.

Jealous isn’t the first minority leader to say one thing while something else is done right in front of his eyes. North Dakota blooger Rob Port has a hilarious post on how several Native-American tribes require an ID to vote in tribal elections, while vehemently opposing the concept for other contests.

Obama, Holder Meet With Sharpton and Other Race Baiters To Discuss Plan of Attack on States With Voter Integrity Laws

Al Sharpton helped incite anti-Jewish riots in Crown Heights, New York in 1991, was convicted of libel for his role in the racially charged Tawana Brawley hoax, incited black anti-Semites against a Jewish business establishment in Harlem in 1995, and stood with the New Black Panthers at a  Sanford, Florida “Justice For Trayvon” rally, in March of last year. It’s pathetic that the MSM gives this despicable character a microphone to disseminate his toxic racialist views. It’s scandalous that such a miscreant would be invited to the White House.

The “Reverend Al” revealed the details of his meeting on MSNBC, today with host, Thomas Roberts.

Via Mediaite:

 Sharpton revealed that the Department of Justice and the White House intend to vigorously enforce the VRA, particularly against states instituting questionable voter ID laws. He added that Texas and North Carolina were two specific states in the DOJ’s crosshairs.

“It was one meeting – it was unprecedented – the attorney general and the president in the Roosevelt Room of the White House,” Sharpton began. “I talked to the attorney general for an hour and the president for 40 minutes.”

Sharpton said that the DOJ will aggressively combat efforts to disenfranchise voters at the state level and that the Supreme Court decision striking down portions of the VRA as unconstitutional does not prohibit the enforcement of most of the provisions in that law.

For sh*ts and giggles read the comments at Mediaite for some excellent examples of the soft racism of low expectations. It’s rilly rilly hard for blacks to get I.D.’s, you know. That’s why voter ID laws disproportionately effect poor, stupid, helpless black people – who also can’t fly, buy liqueur, check out books from the library, open banking accounts, write checks, go to Obama fund-raising events and any number of other things you need IDs for. But nobody is up in arms about that. They only seem to get exercised about voting. The ability to vote for Obama multiple times is a cherished civil right encoded in the Voter Rights Act, apparently.

Uh-uh! Voter fraud virtually never happens! they whimper.

But, of course,  it does.

Last month, the Obama White House hosted a meeting with Sheikh Abdulla bin Bayyah, the Sheikh Who Called for Killing American Troops in Iraq.

The White House has  previously invited a member of the Blind Shiekh’s terrorist organization for consultations at the White House.

Hosting race-baiters of Al Sharpton’s ilk is almost as bad. “The People’s House” is turning into the proverbial  “wretched hive of villainy and scum.”

Exit Question: Why hasn’t Holder been hounded out of office yet? How many scandals does the man have to be embroiled in and how many times does he need to be caught lying to Congress, before Republicans in the House impeach the corrupt S.O.B.?
