Melowese Richardson, an Obama fanatic who voted multiple times for the President because she deemed it “his right to sit as president of the United States,” was celebrated by Al Sharpton and several Democrat colleagues by holding a “welcome home” party for her.  One Democrat Executive stated that the party gave them a chance to portray Richardson, who was convicted of voter fraud, as “a martyr.”

Via Cincinnati.com (h/t Gateway Pundit):

A Hamilton County poll worker who has been held up nationally as an example of voter fraud took the stage at a local voting rights rally – outraging Republicans and dismaying even top local Democrats.

It didn’t outrage all of the Democrats in attendance.  Al Sharpton, the race-baiting criminal hailed by the left as an expert on racial conflict, who ran for President as a Democrat in 2004, embraced Richardson with a hug.

Al Sharpton Melowese Richardson Hug

The Rev. Al Sharpton, keynote speaker at Thursday’s rally to kick-off the campaign for an Ohio Voters’ Bill of Rights Ohio Constitutional amendment, even hugged Melowese Richardson.

Richardson, a Democrat, was convicted of voter fraud after using her position as poll worker to vote more than once in the 2012 presidential election. She got a five year prison term, but was released earlier this month after local Democratic activists pressed for a fairer term.

A judge sentenced her to probation instead.

Richardson was among the more than 400 at Word of Deliverance Church in Forest Park when Cincinnati National Action Network President Bobby Hilton called her on stage for a “welcome home.”

Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke, claims Richardson is no hero, but said he is “very glad the county prosecutor and judge reconsidered and got her out of jail.”

Because you know, voter fraud isn’t a crime worthy of jail time.

Then there was this:

Hamilton County Democratic Party Executive Director Caleb Faux, who was also at the rally, saw it as an attempt to portray Richardson as a martyr because of the lengthy sentence.

Richardson admitted to voting twice in the 2012 swing state of Ohio.  She admitted to sending an absentee ballot in for her granddaughter, who subsequently voted in person on election day.

Three additional absentee ballots were also generated from Richardson’s home address, and all bore similar handwriting.

If you think that’s the only blemish on her record, you’d be sadly mistaken.  Other Enquirer reports show that Richardson was previously convicted of threatening to kill a witness in a criminal case against her brother; of stealing; of drunken driving; and of beating someone in a bar fight.

To the average citizen, Richardson represents a career criminal.  To the Democrats she represents the norm in their political party, and a martyr deserving of a “welcome home” party.

Thank God that whole voter fraud is nothing more than a myth perpetrated by right-wingers.
