Judge Drops The Gavel On BLM Activist – She’s Convicted Of Election Crime And Gets a 6-Year Jail Sentence

Election integrity has been a hot topic of debate since the 2020 presidential election. Since that time, many American citizens and Republican leaders have questioned the reliability of our voting systems.

While most Democrats say it’s overblown and there’s generally little evidence of election fraud, there are examples of lawbreaking.

This includes a recent sentencing of a Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist, who illegally registered to vote in 2019.

In the past year or so, we’ve heard various allegations of election integrity violations, such as deceased individuals casting ballots, mail-in voting miscounts, and the debate over voting rights.

And just recently, the reports are coming in about several states probing BLM due to highly questionable financial practices (and many of those details remain hazy).

Now, both those worlds have collided: a BLM activist has been found guilty, and the punishment isn’t light.

The activist out of Memphis had hoped for leniency and her lawyer will attempt to get a new trial. But for the time being, she’s headed to jail for a significant amount of time.

From Breitbart:

Pamela Moses, a Memphis-based Black Lives Matter activist, has received a sentence of six years behind bars for illegally registering to vote in 2019.

The 44-year-old was sentenced Monday inside the Shelby County Criminal Court by Judge Mark Ward, the Daily Memphian reported Friday.

It’s important to note that while the sentence is officially 6 years, if Moses finishes her programs in prison and “maintains good behavior,” the judge will consider putting her on a 9-month probation.

Even so, the decision is an eye-opening one, especially for those who continue to claim election integrity is a real problem in the country.

It’s also not a good look for Black Lives Matter; Moses founded the BLM Memphis chapter and even ran for mayor, though she lost the general election in October 2019.

She also doesn’t agree with the judge’s decision, maintaining her innocence. She claims she didn’t know she was ineligible to vote, and thought her probation from a 2015 guilty plea had ended.

Of course, that’s another issue: she had been found guilty on previous charges:

The guilty plea was for tampering with evidence, forgery and misdemeanor charges of perjury, stalking, theft under $500 and escape.

Apparently, the Tennessee Department of Corrections told her that her probation time had ended, and gave her a certificate that confirmed this. But then the state rescinded the certificate.

After that, the court ruled that Moses was “permanently stripped” of all her voting rights.

This is due to past felony convictions, which also resulted in losing her citizenship status. That’s why she wasn’t allowed to vote and never would be again in the state of Tennessee.

To many, this just sounds like a career criminal getting the justice she deserves.

She wasn’t merely accused of multiple crimes; she was convicted for multiple crimes. And the state had already ruled that she could never vote again, a punishment that doesn’t come lightly.

On the other side, liberals might claim the sentence is too stiff and the judge is only trying to make an example of Moses.

Either way, though, the voting rights and election integrity debates will just keep raging through the 2022 midterm elections, and likely into the 2024 presidential election.
