FOX News: Woman in Ohio who reportedly voted 6 times is 1 of 19 fraudsters. No info on the other 18?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/02/19/ohio-poll-worker-obama-supporter-investigated-for-potentially-voting-six-times/

"Yes, I voted twice," Richardson told WCPO-TV. "I, after registering thousands of people, certainly wanted my vote to count, so I voted. I voted at the polls."

Authorities also are investigating if she voted in the names of four other people, too, for a total of six votes in the 2012 presidential election.

"I'll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama's right to sit as president of the United States," Richardson vowed when asked about the voter fraud investigation that is now under way.


Then the article states...

Richardson is one of 19 people suspected of illegal voting by the Hamilton County Board of Elections in the last election.


They don't make a mention of the other 18 suspects. Perhaps not all of the 19 suspects were Democrats? Perhaps a majority of the fraudsters were *GASP* actually Republicans? After all, we know their national committee supports known fraudsters like Nathan Sproul. I'm sure if most of these suspects were Democrats, they would be quick to include that in the article, so the way they report this leads me to believe the majority were in fact Republicans. Besides the obvious race-baiting in this article, they once again show that they are the network of Unfair and Slanted.

Either way, I'm sure they're going to publicize this as some massive voter fraud that calls for more voter ID laws, when in reality this was a tiny fraction of the Ohio voting populace and made no impact whatsoever on the election. When over 5 million people vote and you can only find 19 who you even suspect of committing fraud, that shows that your whining is entirely unjustified.

3. Oh yes, definitely

She even admitted to committing fraud, and voting fraud has no place in the system on either side. But my concern here is that FOX chose to highlight one of nineteen suspects, and give no information whatsoever on the other eighteen. I would be very interested to know how many of the nineteen are Democrats and how many are Republicans, and I am led to believe that most are Republicans since information on the nineteen was conveniently omitted from the article. Either way, they all deserve to be punished, including losing the right to vote.

4. The majority of people who do this are Republicans, for a very good reason.

Republicans are the only ones who buy the Republican bullshit propaganda that this is easy, common and worth the trouble.

6. They have homes in at least two states and use absentee ballots.

Until the states compare voter registration lists, we don't know how many there are but there a few from my neighborhood who admit that they do that. Republicans, of course.

9. Sounds like a set up. Who would go on TV and announce they broke the law?

Smells like GOP spirit to me.

10. 17 of the 19

are being investigated for voting absentee and at the polls.

I believe at least most, if not all of the 17, were caught at the polls as having been checked off as "already voted" so cast a provisional ballot - which was not counted.

12. you are right!

because once you have asked for an absentee ballot you are "flagged" in the
polling log book and you have to vote a provisional ballot and that ballot will
not be counted until they make sure you didn't not already vote by absentee
ballot.

This smells like made up b.s. by Sec. of State Jon Husted.

11. I do voter protection in Ohio and this is b.s.

1) It is a felony and anybody who does this is subject to jail and or fines

2) This should never have happened because once you vote you should not be able to vote
again ... period because once you vote @ at a precinct that is it and even if you go and vote at another
precinct by swearing out that you are a registered voter then you have to vote a provisional
ballot which would not be counted because you have already voted. (and you did not vote @ the
proper polling place too)

3) We have flush toilets, electricity, and computers ..... any multiple votes will be caught and
NOT COUNTED

*******
This smells like made up bullshit just like the ACORN stories.

BTW does Fox want to come and interview the real registered voters that when they went
to their polling place found out they were no longer registered to vote there ..... in many cases
those people were still living @ their same address and were voting at the same polling place.
We made sure their votes were counted.

17. We know of a case in Colorado where a repub tried voting twice, not to count the

Voter fraud in Florida in 2000 which served as a stepping stone for Bush to steal an election, his friends worked hard for him.
