Ohio Double Voters Not Cooperating with Investigation

Posted by FactReal on February 19, 2013

Remember the Ohio Democrat poll worker who brazenly admitted that she voted twice for Obama during the 2012 presidential election (and currently being investigated for potentially voting six times in 2012)?

Well, 18 persons are also being investigated for voter fraud in Ohio. But not all are cooperating.

Eric Shawn at Fox News has an update to the Ohio voter fraud investigation:

In written reports detailing the 19 cases, Board of Elections investigators described their findings. In one instance, an investigator called a suspected double voter and was hung up on.

“I explained that she voted twice and she told me not to bother her and get off her phone and she hung up,” the investigator wrote.

Another voter admitted to double voting, but did not think it was an issue.

“The voter said yes she ‘voted early’ and then voted again, then she asked ‘what’s the problem?‘” according to the report.

Yet another voter was at a loss for explaining why he voted more than once.

“Voter said he remembered both times. He doesn’t know why he voted twice,” the report said.

The documents show that another voter said he had received a phone call before Election Day telling him his absentee ballot would not count. When investigators questioned him about voting two times, the voter replied “‘as usual, you guys are wrong.’ … he was curious about the investigation and asked ‘Now what will you do’ and ‘are you taping me now?”

The Hamilton County Board of Elections is holding hearings to further investigate these cases.


As part of a new effort to root out any voter fraud, Secretary of State Husted has ordered all 88 of the state’s county Board of Elections to hold public hearings on any credible voter fraud allegations or claims of voter disenfranchisement during the 2012 election. He said any substantiated allegations should be turned over to prosecutors.

“I Voted Twice for Obama in 2012,” Ohio Poll Worker Admits (Video)

Posted by FactReal on February 10, 2013

(Scroll down for updates.)
Democrat poll worker brazenly admits she voted twice for Obama last year. Reportedly, she voted four more times through absentee ballots for others and registered thousands to vote … for Obama. But here is the pièce de résistance: She has been a poll worker since 1988! We wonder if her mother, who also worked at the polls, shared her creativity.

Do you think she will receive jail time or a fine? Probably if she’d voted for Romney.

Other video source: Here.
John Fund reported:

The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters and nine witnesses are part of the probe.

Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election.

ABC Channel 9 via Townhall.com:

Melowese Richardson, a Madisonville resident, first learned of the allegations when approached by 9 On Your Side reporter Tom McKee Wednesday. Even though she admits to voting twice in the last election, she said the news came as surprise. […]

She has worked the polls since 1988. Richardson said in her youth she would accompany her mother, who also worked at the polls, even though she wasn’t old enough to vote at the time. […]

During the investigation it was also discovered that her granddaughter, India Richardson, who was a first time voter in the 2012 election, cast two ballots in November.[…]

Another claim is absentee ballots for Montez Richardson, Joseph Jones and Markus Barron all came from Richardson’s Whetsel Avenue address and were received by the board at the same time as Richardson’s. The handwriting on all four of them was similar, according to officials.

Biden’s Costco Visit – A Publicity Stunt as Payback to Big Democrat Donor

Posted by FactReal on November 29, 2012

Democrat VP Joe Biden came down from Mount Olympus today to mingle with American commoners and to push his lefty agenda during his “surprise” stop at the opening of Washington’s first Costco store. This was simply a multi-pronged publicity stunt to pay back Costco, a big Democrat donor, and to campaign for tax increases (masked as “tax cuts for the middle class” and “tax increases for the rich”.)

Joe Biden, a regular Costco shopper? Not really. Biden got his card reactivated just Wednesday for today’s photo op.

Joe Biden goes to Costco after executives cozy up to the White House
Via the Washington Examiner:

Sinegal, Costco’s former CEO, gave a speech praising President Obama at the Democratic National Convention in September.

Sinegal retired as CEO in January, but gradually took a greater interest in Obama’s re-election campaign.

Sinegal hosted a fundraiser for Obama in July at his Seattle area mansion at Hunt’s Point. Tickets for the event ranged from $5,000 to $35,000 and reportedly raised more than $1.4 million.

Sinegal also defended Obama’s record on small business, after the Romney campaign’s ads featuring Obama’s “You didn’t build that” remarks.

Costco’s co-founder and former CEO, Jim Sinegal, at the 2012 Democtratic National Convention:
Costco Executive Epitomizes Obama’s Love of Crony Capitalism
Steven Greenhut from HumanEvents wrote this last September:

Costco is not an aberration in its support for the Democratic platform. It is, in fact, the embodiment of the kind of pliant, government-subsidized corporation that Democratic leaders prefer these days.

I’ve tussled with Sinegal in the past, back when his company was strong-arming local governments in Southern California into using eminent domain to clear away properties to make it easier for Costco to expand. Costco offers some great merchandise, but its success is built as much on special governmental privilege as it is on hard work and ingenuity. The company takes millions of dollars in subsidies from local governments chasing sales-tax revenue.

As I wrote in the Orange County Register in 2002, …think carefully before you use the words ‘free enterprise’ and ‘Costco’ in the same breath. The company certainly knows how to market goods and services to budget-conscious customers and to maximize profits. Unfortunately, Costco also is adept at manipulating the political process on its own behalf, in a way that smacks of mercantilism (government-controlled markets) rather than capitalism.”

I wrote about Costco’s “unholy scheme to deprive Cottonwood Christian Center of its 18-acre property in Cypress.” The Wall Street Journal also blasted the retailer in an editorial, which exhorted the privilege-seeking Costco to “buy their land in the open market instead of relying on local governments to seize a juicy location at below-market prices.” […]

…Costco [has] been involved in similar situations across the country…[s]uch as in Lancaster, Calif., where in 2000 a federal district court struck down the city’s attempted use of eminent domain on Costco’s behalf. According to the court documents, immediately after a competitor, 99 Cents Only Stores, moved into a vacant store next to Costco in Lancaster in 1998, Costco demanded that the city use eminent domain to literally give the 99 Cents Only space to Costco. Otherwise, Costco said it would move to neighboring Palmdale.”

It seems fitting that the main corporate speaker at the Democratic convention comes right out of the crony-capitalism school of business. It seems fitting that it uses its muscle to arm-twist cities into taking others’ property and into filling its coffers with tax dollars.

99% of COSTCO contributions went to Democrats:

Obama economy has been a boon for Costco:

[T]he Obama economy has been a boon for Costco, but not in the way some might think. In 2009, Costco surprised industry insiders when it announced it would begin accepting food stamps at its 420 stores.

“Given the economy and layoffs, this was a positive for our members and the right thing to do,” Costco CFO Richard Galanti told the Wall Street Journal in 2009.

At the time of Costco’s decision, 35 million individuals received food stamps. Today, that figure is 47 million.

Costco Co-Founder Jim Sinegal maxed out his personal financial contribution to Obama and pushed for ObamaCare
ABC reported on Jul 23, 2012:

Sinegal’s support for Obama does not come as a surprise. A longtime and generous Democratic donor, he maxed out his personal financial contribution to Obama in 2008 and will host the president Tuesday at his Hunts Point, Wash., home for two high-dollar fundraisers for the 2012 campaign. Sinegal also publicly advocated for Obama’s health care law at the height of debate in 2009.

Strange: Dems Added 47k Miami Voters just before Election after Years of Losing 1000’s of Voters

Posted by FactReal on November 22, 2012

According to the voter registration statistics from the elections department in Miami-Dade County, Florida, Democrats were losing thousands of registered voters every year after Obama got elected in 2008. Then, suddenly few months before the November 2012 election, Democrats were able to convince over 47,000 voters in Miami-Dade County to register as Democrats despite the failed policies of Obama and other Democrat politicians.
It’d be very interesting to find out what tactics did Democrats use to convince all those people.
Yearly Voter Registration Statistics

Year End Voters Added Total Voters
2009 (14,060) 548,779
2010 (12,632) 536,147
2011 (6,968) 529,179
2012 47,308 576,487
From January through December 2009, Democrats lost 14,060 registered voters in Miami-Dade County. Over 12,000 voters abandoned the Democrat Party in 2010 and almost 7,000 in 2011. Suddenly at the end of 2012, about 47,300 voters in Miami-Dade decided to disregard the national malaise brought by Obama and the Democrats (i.e., the poor economy, high unemployment, the Libya scandal, etc.) and registered as Democrats.

2012 Breakdown: (Table below)
Early 2012, Democrats registered less than 1,000 voters, but soon lost 3,175 in March and 1,075 in April. In the third quarter, they started adding about 5,400 voters per month. For the October report they duplicated that average. And for the November report, Democrats surprisingly were able to convince almost 20,000 people to register as Democrats.
