Ohio nun faces vote-fraud charge

CWN - March 12, 2013

A Catholic nun in Ohio is facing charges of vote fraud.

Sister Marguerite Kloos has reportedly agreed to plead guilty to the charge, which carries a maximum sentence of 18 months in prison. She told Hamilton County investigators that she had filled out an absentee ballot for another nun who died before the election.

Sister Kloos has resigned from her post as dean at the College of Mount St. Joseph.

    Let me guess! Sister Marguerite cast the dead nun's ballot and her own for Mitt Romney. When pigs fly!
