Obama Activist Convicted Of Multiple Voter Fraud Gets Early Release From Prison
You may remember our friend Mellowese Richardson, formerly of ACORN,, who in 2012 was an Obama activist and poll worker in Ohio. She was convicted of four counts of multiple voter fraud in a plea bargain in exchange for dropping multiple other felony voter fraud charges. A long time resident and a poll worker in Cincinnati’s Madisonville neighborhood since 1998, she used information she had privy to as a poll worker to submit phony absentee ballots and 'vote' numerous times through the years, including voting three times for a relative who has been in a coma since 2003.She was finally busted after the 2012 election, when county Board of Elections workers “noticed a bunch of absentee ballots coming from the same place with the same handwriting.
There's literally no way to know how many times she illegally voted or who else might have been in on it with her..which, of course is why Democrats fight voter ID laws and any attempt to purge the rolls of dead people, non-residents and felons like crazed hyenas.
Ms. Richardson didn't help her trial any with a fairly nasty attitude, spouting off that she was going to "fight for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States” and the usual accusations of you-know-what.
She got five years.
But today, after only a few months in jail, she's back on the streets, with the balance of her sentence changed to probation. Because she gave her attorney permission to release her medial records showing she suffers from -wait for it- bi-polar disorder!
Which leads to a couple of other questions. How long ago was she diagnosed? If she had this disorder all along, why wasn't it brought up at the original trial? If this was an ongoing problem, did she disclose it when she became a poll worker? Or was she diagnosed recently and did someone help her go shrink shopping to make sure she got the 'right' diagnosis she needed to her get out of jail free card?
And by the way, as a convicted felon, were her voting rights restored? I wouldn't be at all surprised.
Aside from any grace and favor she might have gotten from the president and/or the Justice Department, one reason she was probably kicked loose so easily is because of the overcrowding in prisons and the need for accommodations for new 'guests.'
But I have a feeling that if she was a Tea Party activist jailed under the exact same circumstances, space would have somehow been found to keep her locked up.
