Melowese Richardson case expands: Hamilton County elections officials adding conspiracy to charges of voter fraud

World Champion Obama Voter, alleged to have voted six times, is now accused of a cover-up to commit fraud, using her position as an election official

From Eric Dondero: 

Local Republican Party officials are pissed. They are now getting into the act, and promising to do whatever it takes to ensure that Richardson is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Breaking news from Fox 15, Cincy, "Did Obama supporter vote 6 times in 2012? Ohio poll worker target of investigation":
"I'm outraged, and every voter, regardless of their political affiliation, should be outraged," said Hamilton County Board of Elections member Alex Triantafilou, who is also chairman of the county Republican Party. "It causes folks to have real doubts about the fabric of our very democratic process, and it's dangerous. It is disconcerting that someone would be so bold as to admit their conduct in such a fashion ... We fully intend to prosecute these cases."
And now a new charge is creeping into the investigation. Continuing:
"It appears she not only attempted to vote more than once, but was actually successful at it and having those additional votes counted," 
Ohio Secretary of State John Husted, who is in charge of the state's elections, told Fox News. "She appears to have used her position as a poll worker to cover her tracks. That would be someone who is an official in the elections process, using that position to commit a fraud. That is especially troubling to me, as the chief elections officer of the state, because it is my responsibility to make sure the system runs effectively, that it has integrity. When I find issues like this, I know that it undermines voter confidence in our elections, and we must pursue it." (emphasis added)
Exit question - How soon before we can begin calling for a recount in Ohio of the presidential election, and possibly even a do-over?

There's a roughly 166,000 vote difference in Ohio. Can a recount really succeed? 27,000 plus people voting six times like this fraud did would make that up. But do you think that happened? About 5.6 million votes cast, that's 4/10ths of 1%. I don't know if the election can be changed by this.

Recounts never happen when vote fraud becomes so obvious a show prosecution must be done. That makes vote fraud enticing for those true believers willing to take one for the team, since they know their efforts will be successful no matter what happens to them. Combined with the (IMO erroneous) assumption by authorities that there is no organized effort to subvert elections means Democrats can steal elections with impunity. They already have quite publicly and nothing was done: the elections of Christine Gregoire in Washington and Al Franken in Minnesota.

Gregoire in Washington goes down in history as the biggest vote fraud ever, and the most blatant.

Franken is a close second.
