We’ve been repeatedly told by liberal Socialist propagandists in the state media complex that there is no such thing as voter fraud. Only a racist or conspiracy kook would believe that voter fraud exists, or say most Leftists in America.
Luckily, most normal people are better informed on this topic than your average liberal that gets spoonfed propaganda by MSNBC. As you will remember from yesterday, we discussed the case of a creature named Melowese Richardson. This dirtbag voted a total of 6 times, and in her job as a Cincinnati poll worker, may well have enacted shenanigans that allowed other people to vote in person on Election Day who may have already mailed in provisional ballots.
In another local voter fraud case, it appears that a dead nun somehow voted. Actually, the dead nun did not herself vote, obviously. The nun in question died the very day absentee ballots were delivered. Yet, sure enough, her absentee ballot showed up at the Hamilton County Board of Elections a week later, signed in the hand of another person.
Presumably, another nun from the Cincinnati Sisters of Charity, also living at the same address, filled out the ballot. Local prosecutors are looking into the case, and charges are likely.
We really shouldn’t be too shocked about this incident, given the lawlessness of the Roman Catholic Church. We have discussed the flagrant disregard the Catholic Church has for our good laws in America.
Be it the fact a prominent TV priest thought convicted child molester and ex-Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky was a “victim,” or the adoration for illegal immigrants, its obvious the Roman Catholic Church haughtily believes itself to be above our good laws. Despite all the scandals and lawlessness, the Church has dared to scold the rest of us about “ethics” and other political issues. It certainly looks like the Know Nothing Party was right all along.
And what of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, the order at the center of this voter fraud case? Check out their website. Despite what you’ve probably been brainwashed into believing, this un-religious order is little more than a thinly veiled, tax-exempt, Socialist, activist agency. Look at their website if you don’t believe me.
They’re for global government action to combat the myth of manmade global warming. They’re for open borders. They’re advocates of a widened welfare state.
In short, they’re Socialists. But hey, its a free country. Maybe the nuns should go read the Ten Commandments again. I think one of the Big Ten was ‘Thou shalt not steal.’” That’s what the Socialism they’re agitating for precisely is – stealing.
If you want to be a Socialist in America, you can do so. If you want to agitate for Socialist causes with likeminded Socialists, then you can do that too. Good luck to the Sisters.
What you cannot do – legally anyway – is to claim a 501 C3 tax-exempt status, and engage in politicking. We’ve discussed that before too here in the Truth Emporium.
Voter fraud does exist, clones, and the people doing it are leftwing Progressives. That’s a fact. In the mind of a Progressive, might makes right and the end justifies the means. If you have to lie, cheat, steal, break the rules, and even break the law to push Socialism uber alles, then so be it. Progressives have proven they have no qualms whatever about disenfranchising you and voiding your vote, whatever the cost.
A Greater Cincinnati nun is suspected of illegally casting a ballot for another nun who died before last November’s election, a new case of alleged vote fraud that emerged as local officials move to wrap up their investigation into election improprieties last fall.
Sister Rose Marie Hewitt, 78, died Oct. 4 after a 59-year career as a Sister of Charity that included service in schools here and across the country, as well as in various other positions in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
Although her death occurred before absentee ballots had been mailed to voters throughout Hamilton County, a completed ballot was returned to the elections board in Hewitt’s name.
Officials believe the ballot was sent by another local Sister of Charity who was a friend of Hewitt and is registered at the same Delhi Township address. That person cast her own vote at her polling place on Election Day.
In a Feb. 19 letter to elections board members, county Prosecutor Joe Deters said a preliminary investigation has turned up “sufficient information … to determine that there is probable cause to believe that criminal activity has occurred.”
The Enquirer left messages Wednesday but did not hear back from the second individual, who is a dean at the College of Mount St. Joseph.
Elections board staffers have been aware of the matter since earlier this month. But details were concealed until The Enquirer this week pressed for public release of documents outlining what occurred in it and other cases.
When dozens of alleged cases of double-voting and other alleged improprieties emerged after last November’s presidential race, election officials routinely made records relating to those episodes available to the news media.
But the county prosecutor’s office recently advised the elections board that such documents are investigatory records not necessarily subject to public disclosure.
That policy has since hidden new details in previously known cases from public view as well as the fresh case involving the legally problematic vote in Hewitt’s name.
The prosecutor’s staff told the two elections officials they were within their discretion to do so, and the documents related to the nuns’ case finally were made available to The Enquirer late Wednesday.
“We’ve been trying to do everything in an open and transparent way,” Burke said.
In Deters’ letter, the prosecutor advised elections officials to conduct no further investigation in the case.
The advice raised concerns that it might appear that the case was receiving different treatment from those involving other voters and a poll worker simply because it deals with two nuns.
“We want everyone treated the same way,” Burke said. Within a few days, however, prosecutors may take over several other cases, Burke said.
In prior stories dealing with alleged vote fraud, The Enquirer has not named individuals accused until they appear at board hearings to offer explanations or until formal charges are filed. That is why the woman suspected of mailing in Hewitt’s absentee ballot is not being identified at this stage.
The timetable in this case makes it clear that the absentee ballot returned under Hewitt’s name could not have been cast by her.
The same day that Hewitt died, Oct. 4, was the date that elections board officials dropped off her absentee ballot and about 60,000 others at the post office, for delivery presumably a day or two later.
But the completed absentee ballot that the board received back on Oct. 11 included an identification envelope with a signature purporting to be Hewitt’s and was dated Oct. 3 – before ballots had been delivered to voters’ homes.
The circumstances are similar to another case scheduled to be reviewed by elections officials Friday. In this case, a Loveland man is suspected of improperly signing and filling out a ballot for his 75-year-old wife after she, too, died several days before the absentees were delivered.
At Friday’s meeting, the elections board is scheduled to review about 10 cases in which those suspected of double-voting or other improper behavior last fall have been subpoenaed for a final opportunity to explain their actions and avoid possible charges.
Because the case involving the nuns already is in prosecutors’ hands, it will not be among those heard Friday at the elections board office Downtown.
Overall, the board is examining about 20 allegations of possible vote fraud, roughly one-fourth of the cases initially reviewed. While that number is miniscule compared with the nearly 422,000 votes cast countywide last fall, it is sizable in terms of vote fraud. The last vote fraud prosecution in Hamilton County is believed to have occurred in 2008.
In most of the dismissed cases from last November, the double votes stemmed from elderly voters’ confusion or voters’ concern that their absentee ballots would not reach the board in time to vote, prompting them to vote a provisional ballot at the polls, cast when there are questions over voters’ eligibility.
After Friday’s hearings, elections officials may decide which cases to forward to prosecutors.
