You all may remember Mellowese Richardson, a Democrat activist and poll worker in Ohio's Hamilton County who was recently convicted of voter fraud.
Two others including a nun have already been convicted of voter fraud in Hamilton County, Ohio this year. And a number of other Obama activists around the country are being tried as I write this.
It's a strange thing about Ohio. Mitt Romney lost to President Obama by 166,214 votes in Ohio in 2012 out of 5,489,028 votes cast, a 3% margin.Yet, according to this story in the Columbus Dispatch, as amny as one in five registered Ohio 'voters' is probably ineligible:
In two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting-age population: Northwestern Ohio’s Wood County shows 109 registered voters for every 100 eligible, while in Lawrence County along the Ohio River it’s a mere 104 registered per 100 eligible.
Another 31 counties show registrations at more than 90 percent of those eligible, a rate regarded as unrealistic by most voting experts. The national average is a little more than 70 percent.
Now, Ohio's Secretary of State Jon Husted who presides over elections sent a number of requests to our Attorney General Eric Holder requesting permission to clean up the rolls.
In a Feb. 10 letter, he asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for a personal meeting to discuss how to balance seemingly conflicting federal laws so he could pare Ohio’s dirty voter list without removing truly eligible voters.
“Common sense says that the odds of voter fraud increase the longer these ineligible voters are allowed to populate our rolls,” Husted said. “I simply cannot accept that.”
Holder’s office has never replied.
Ohio's voter rolls contain, among other things, an estimated 1.8 million dead people and nearly 3 million who have registered to vote in multiple states. And that's not counting felons who have had their right to vote taken away.
In fact, there were a fair number of voter fraud cases after the election in Georgia, in Mississippi, in Indiana, in Colorado, in Missouri and other states as well as Ohio.Oddly enough, there were none in Democrat ruled states like California, Massachusetts and New York.
In view of this and a number of other questionable occurrences, like numerous urban precincts in Philadelphia that recorded a 110% + turnout without a single Republican vote and same day registration in states like Wisconsin, perhaps Mitt Romney conceded just a little too early.
Oh, but voter fraud's a myth, right?
