Ohio nun pleads guilty to vote fraud
April 18, 2013
An Ohio nun has escaped jail time after pleading guilty to voter fraud.
Sister Marguerite Kloos admitted to forging her name on an absentee ballot that was sent to a recently deceased member of her community. As a first-time offender she was sentenced to community service.
After the vote-fraud charges were filed against her, Sister Kloos resigned her post as a dean at the College of Mt. St. Joseph in Cincinnati. She continues to teach in the religious-studies department there.
