Too bad Lessadolla’s voting relatives can’t help her now.
They’re dead.

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.

    Nothing to see here, move along. MediaMatters already proved there has never been voter fraud, there never will be voter fraud.

    Unless it is a Republican that wins, then it is always voter fraud. The voters would never vote for a republican.

  • Mad Hatter

    But, but, the Alinsky Media told me there is no such thing as voter fraud, and that it’s only voter suppression of minorities.

    I sure am glad we don’t need voter ID’s laws.

    All clear, and all is well.

  • Militant conservative

    I’m shocked she’s black.


  • Tim in Cali

    I’m willing to bet some ..err..many are collecting entitlements using dead relatives also

    Update: MSLSD calls us a bunch of bitter clinger racist haters in 3..2..1

    The Democrats will say, “These are isolated incidents.”

  • anybody old enough to remember when the NAACP was for one man one vote?

  • Jeannie

    Oh yes it’s certain that this was an isolated event. There simply is zero evidence that voter fraud is widespread.

    In related news…it turns out that politicians by and large never think about re-election.

    Voting Fraud is our biggest internal threat. . here is a Congressional Caucasian Demoncrat who outright cheated. . what about students as well as those on gov’t subsidies, homeless people, and illegal immigrants. . .

    That is why we need voter ID. . .

    Many will say thanks but we try and Obama and Holder with DOJ knock it down. . .

    I say enact voter ID law AGAIN but with this proviso for those with NO gov’t issued ID, namely if a person has no gov’t issued ID then they may vote by giving us their finger prints as well as dipping their thumb or forefinger in the ink used during Iraqi voting. . an ink that cannot be removed for a few days. . .

    This way all fingerprints will be checked for validity that
    1) they are in the district
    2) they are eligible & registered
    3) they have only voted once. . anywhere

    If found to have violated any of these three points, the penalty will be severe in both $$$ and time in jail (years).

    That would stand up in a court of law as no one eligible would be denied. . .

    Do it now Ohio, FL, PA, WI, Iowa, VI and NC. . .NJ,and CA too

    Ah crap!

    Another of my cronies got busted!

    I was depending on voter fraud to put me over the top. My campaign is ruined. My donors will be bankrupted. But, I won’t.

    I will be on the Isle of Man spending my donors money! My donors can’t touch me there. Ha ha!

    Looks like Al Sharpton.

    Lessadolla is a woman?

    Oh, my, NAACP, who would have thought? (sarc)

  • Damn the DNA tests, full fraud ahead.

  • this is why polls are useless.

  • Glenn47

    Recently they printed a long list with pictures of people convicted of voter fraud in Florida. And they say it isn’t so.

  • BurmaShave

    Don’t worry, She is not going to jail for five years. This will definitely be appealed. Probably more like five days, if that.

    She doesn’t look too happy.
    Even her nose looks unhappy.

    why is this any different than the Maryland congressional candidate who was recently forced to withdraw from the race when it was discovered she had voted in both Maryland and Florida?

    why isn’t she also in jail?

  • stonedome

    I sincerely hope that she’s given a full pardon in January 2013, as BHO leaves office.

    This is why we need to end absentee balloting. You vote in person or you don’t vote at all.
