Mississippi NAACP Official Jailed For 5 Years for Voting for Dead Relatives (Updated)
(UPDATE: This story occurred a year ago)
Too bad Lessadolla’s voting relatives can’t help her now.
A Missippi NAACP official was jailed recently on 10 counts of voter fraud including voting for her dead relatives.
A Mississippi NAACP executive is in jail after being convicted of voter fraud for fraudulently casting absentee ballots, including for four dead people.
Lessadolla Sowers, who is a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee, was convicted and sentenced in April for what a judge said were crimes that cut “against the fabric of our free society.”
She was given a five-year sentence for each of the ten counts of voter fraud for which she was convicted, but the sentencing judge allowed her to serve the terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times.
Matthew Vadum, author of Subversion, Inc., notes Sowers’s DNA was found on the inner seals of five envelopes that contained the absentee ballots, and liberal groups like the NAACP and ACORN have had a history of such shenanigans.
