Non-citizens caught voting in 2012 presidential election in key swing state

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found 17 non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election -- and has referred the case for possible prosecution.




The alleged crime would be a notable case of voter fraud in a key swing state. By law, only American citizens are allowed the privilege of casting ballots for the nation's leaders.

Ohio officials say that did not stop some from getting around the system.

"I have a responsibility to uphold election law, and under both federal and state law you must be a citizen to vote," said Husted, a Republican who has aggressively tried to investigate voter fraud cases in his state.

Husted also found that 274 non-citizens remain on the voting rolls.

President Obama beat Mitt Romney in Ohio by just 2 percentage points in November 2012.

As part of Ohio's efforts to clean up the voting rolls, election officials discovered that more than 257,000 dead people were still listed as active voters. Their names and status, Husted said, have since been removed.

In addition, election authorities note they have drastically reduced the number of duplicate registrations, from 340,000 in 2011 to just four this past November -- and that more than 370,000 Ohio voters who have moved have been contacted to update their voting information.

"Now that we have the ability to cross-check citizenship information with Ohio's voter rolls, I will continue to be vigilant and to push the General Assembly for additional tools to modernize our elections systems, making it easy to vote and hard to cheat," Husted said.

Voting advocates have long complained that some of the country's voter fraud investigations amount to voter suppression, aimed at preventing minorities and others from voting. But supporters say the efforts only are aimed at preventing voter fraud and maintaining the integrity of the electoral process.

The new investigation comes after election officials secured several voter fraud convictions stemming from last year's election in Ohio, including that of one poll worker who was accused of voting six times in the November presidential election.

Melowese Richardson, 58, is serving five years in prison after being convicted of four counts of voter fraud. Prosecutors said she repeatedly had voted in the name of her sister, who has been in a coma since 2003, and that the illegal votes Richardson cast were counted in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. She also was accused of illegally voting in November's election in the names of other people, including her granddaughter India Richardson, who told Fox News that "it wasn't a big deal."

A Cincinnati nun also pleaded guilty to illegal voting as part of the ongoing voter fraud investigation.

The new cases of non-citizen voting are being referred to local prosecutors.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

And the Dead always vote Democrat.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Democrat voters
 
If they did this kind of audit nationwide (which they will never do), they would find 10s of millions of dead and illegal voters. Combine those with poll workers changing and stealing votes, people who vote multiple times, and rigged voting machines, and you have the explaination how 20% of America who are 'Liberal' control the government and the voting system.
 
However, even though all of these issues are well known nationwide, the Republicans seem OK with it, and seem to be just as satisfied as the Democrats with the well known fraud and cheating that happens every election. They never do anything about it. They refuse to even talk about it.
 
So, what can you do?

Yep! I think my husband became a democrat in death. Right before the election, a democrat pollster called and asked for him. I told her he passed away. She said she still had him on her rolls. I told her he had always voted republican. She hung up. I reported the incident to several agencies, but never heard back from any of them, but hopefully they did something about it. He would be p*ssed if he knew he voted for Obummer.

All of these voting fraud issues are so common and so well known that they have become a standard joke that you would hear in the workplace, bar, or on TV. It is so common that people laugh about it, and yet no one will do anything about.
 
Like a zombie, the voting fraud continues year after year after year and if you ask a poltician about it in both parties, they will ridicule it, look the other way, and change the subject. Republicans especially, who are the most hurt by this, run from the subject in fear. Nobody really knows why? Like in Ohio, even when you document it and show them physically that these things are happening, you get nothing but silence. They're afraid of something. I don't know what.
 
It is actually kind of weird.

Often, I think it's a kind of weary resignation. After all: who are you going to complain to? To the government officials and elected representatives who benefit from fraud? Hardly. Who is going to stop it?  Do GOP leaders inspire any confidence, any more? Their jobs, in their gerrymandered districts, are most often safe. And they certainly don't want to deal with the avalanche of false accusations that will cascade upon them from the Democrat/Media Complex. So they mumble and grumble and ultimately, do nothing.
