"Yeah, I voted for Obama twiceâŚ whatâs the big deal?"
According to county documents, Richardsonâs absentee ballot was accepted on Nov. 1, 2012 along with her signature. On Nov. 11, she told an official she also voted at a precinct because she was afraid her absentee ballot would not be counted in time.
âThereâs absolutely no intent on my part to commit voter fraud,â said Richardson.
According to BOE records, her name appeared on an absentee ballot list prior to Election Day. The boardâs report states poll workers should have updated the signature poll book by flagging âabsentee voterâ next to the names of those who appeared on the list. Upon investigation it was found that none of the voters who appeared on the list were flagged, which included Richardson. The staff could not locate that supplemental list when asked.
Richardson voted at the Madisonville Recreation Center where she worked as a paid worker on Election Day.
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.
Documents show when India was contacted on Jan. 17 concerning the two ballots, she denied voting absentee.
She stated, âNo, my grandmother filled that out and voted my ballot because she didnât think I would go do it, but I did. I voted provisionally at my polling place on Election Day,â according to the report.
Another claim is absentee ballots for Montez Richardson, Joseph Jones and Markus Barron all came from Richardsonâs Whetsel Avenue address were received by the board the same time as Richardsonâs and the handwriting on all four of them was similar.
OMG, Watch this dumbass on video
