A liberal environmentalist from Ohio has been charged with 13 counts of felony voter fraud after she falsely registered several people to vote and forged numerous signatures on official registration forms.
Rebecca Hammonds, 35, pleaded guilty to all 13 felony counts of voter fraud.
Hammonds was a paid canvasser for the Ohio Organizing Collaborative (OOC). She played an active role in registering voters in the county during September and October 2015. It is during that time period that the voter fraud took place.
100 Percent Fed Up reports:
Ironically, In October 2015, The sheriff’s office conducted the initial probe before turning the investigation over to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, a division of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, which handled the prosecution. The felony charges carried a maximum possible one-year prison sentence on each count. Brian Deckert, an associate assistant attorney general, had recommended a one-year prison sentence for Hammonds but he did not oppose her request for probation.
To make the situation even more crazy, Hammonds, one of the two supporters of a Youngstown anti-fracking charter amendment on Nov. 3, accused the vote of being rigged.
Words cannot describe the level of hypocrisy that she engaged in.
As for Hammonds case, the judge could have granted her probation, but felt that the charges levied against her were far too serious and warranted a proper punishment.
“I just can’t overlook this,” Judge C. Anthony Pike said. “You attempted to violate the integrity of our election process in the county.”
He then accused Hammonds of making “a mockery of our system,” adding, “If 180 days (in the county jail) doesn’t teach you a lesson, nothing will.”
