Nun & poll worker charged with voter fraud

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A nun, a poll worker and a senior citizen are charged with voter fraud in Hamilton County stemming from the contentious 2012 presidential election.

Russell Glossop, 75, Melowese Richardson, 58 and Sister Marguerite Kloos each face charges of voter fraud.

Glossop is charged with voting via absentee ballot on behalf of his deceased wife. Officials say his wife passed before the ballots were mailed out yet her ballot was returned with her signature.

Richardson, a Hamilton County poll worker for at least 14 years, was charged with eight counts of illegal voting. The prosecutor's office says Richardson voted twice on her own behalf and seven times on behalf of her relatives in various elections.

Sister Kloos faces one count of illegal voting. She served as Dean of the Division of Arts and Humanities for the College of Mount St. Joseph. The prosecutor's office says Sister Kloos voted on behalf of a nun who also passed away before the absentee ballots had been mailed out. According to the prosecutor, Kloos has agreed to cooperate and plead guilty.

On Monday, officials with the school announced her resignation.

"As a valued member of the Mount community, our thoughts are with her during this difficult time. We respect her privacy and will not comment further on this matter at this time."

If convicted, Glossop faces up to 18 months in prison. Richardson could face up to 12 years in prison. Sister Kloos could face up to 18 months in prison.
