Melowese Richardson, a Hamilton County poll worker convicted of voter fraud after voting for Barrack Obama more that once in the 2012 election, took the stage at a local voting rights rally to kick-off the Ohio Voters’ Bill of Rights Ohio Constitutional amendment. Apparently, voting once is not enough. It is rumoured that their new campaign slogan will be, “Vote Early! Vote Often! Vote Democrat!”
Melowese had served only eight months of a five-year sentence after being convicted for voting twice in the 2012 presidential election. She was also convicted of voting three times (in 2008, 2011, and 2012) for her sister, who has been in a coma since 2003. Perhaps she has a way of communicating with her comatose sister that doctors aren’t aware of and was able to discern her sister’s voting preferences.
Said Melowese prior to her 2013 conviction, “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.” Apparently, she didn’t have that much of a fight in her. Even though she was represented by the George Soros-funded Ohio Justice and Policy Center, the evidence piled up against Melowese and she accepted a plea deal to four counts of voter fraud. Perhaps her interview with Cincinnati’s Channel 9 in February 2013 where she admitted to voting twice in the 2012 election had something to do with that.
The Rev. Al Sharpton of Tawana Brawley hoax fame and race-baiter extraordinaire was the keynote speaker at last week’s rally where more that 450 people showed up. “Nobody gave us the right to vote,” Sharpton said, “and nobody is going to give it to us now. We fought for it and we’re going to fight for our right to keep it.”
Sharpton, not the sharpest tack in the room, continually and conveniently forgets the history of the black voters’ rights movement. It was the Republican party that led the way to give the right to vote to citizens of color.
The Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was finally adopted on February 3, 1870 after having been ratified by 28 of the necessary states. The initial proposal had been approved for the ratification process in February of 1869 by a House vote of 144 to 44 with 35 not voting. Al should know that none of his beloved Democrats supported the bill and zero Democrats voted for it. Zero Democrats, Al.
The 15th Amendment reads as follows:
- Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
- Section 2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
But, I guess history is convenient to forget when it doesn’t suit your agenda. Thanks, Al. How honest of you. How easy it is to forget the thousands who fought and died for freedom, and for your right to vote. Said President Ulysses S. Grant, a Republican and former General of all U.S. Union armies during the American Civil War, about the 15th Amendment, “[it] completes the greatest civil change and constitutes the most important event that has occurred since the nation came to life.”
For all the trouble that some have gone through to make sure that people have the right to vote, there are those that would applaud the efforts of those who would abuse it.
Also, attending the “welcome home” party honoring Melowese Richardson was Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke who, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer, said, “I am very glad the county prosecutor and judge reconsidered and got her out of jail.” Vote Early! Vote Often! Vote Democrat!
J. Christian Adams of Breitbart points out in an article dated 03/23/14 that, “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.” Adams states further that, “The Justice Department routinely charges criminals who were previously subject to state charges.”
However, don’t expect Eric Holder of the Department of Justice (DOJ), nor any of Holder’s cronies at the DOJ either, to go after Melowese. Assistant United States Attorney Anthony Springer, who serves as the District Election Officer (DEO) in Cincinnati could file federal charges against Melowese, but since he is an Obama presidential campaign donor, he more that likely believes in the social justice seeking voter right’s adage, Vote Early! Vote Often! Vote Democrat!
Though the progressive liberal left-wing social-justice-for-all voters’ right crowd would have you believe that voter fraud does not exist, it is alive and well. Furthermore, it is embraced and celebrated with zeal and convicted felons are honored for their transgressions. Emboldened by President Obama, Eric Holder, and the DOJ, the left will continue to Vote Early! Vote Often! Vote Democrat!
