The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –

The founder of the Memphis chapter of Black Lives Matter has been sentenced to six years in prison for fraudulent voter activity.

According to Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich, 44-year-old Pamela Moses earned the six year and one day jail sentence after registering to vote and doing so six times even though she has several felony convictions.

In 2015, Moses pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and forgery – both felony charges – and misdemeanor charges of perjury, stalking, and theft under $500.

She received seven years of probation, and the tampering with evidence charge made her ineligible to vote in Tennessee.

At the time of her conviction, Moses should have been taken off of all voter rolls, but Memphis voting officials say they never received the paperwork to do so.

In 2019, Moses attempted to run for mayor in Memphis, but was told she could not be on the ballot because she was currently serving probation. When this was confirmed by a local judge, Moses went to the probation office to confirm.

A probation officer then signed off on her probation and Moses took that certificate to the county election commission to have her voter rights reinstated. However, within a few days, the corrections office realized that an error had been made and notified the election commission via email and sent Moses a letter telling her that she was not eligible to vote.

Moses claims she did nothing wrong.

“I did not falsify anything. All I did was try to get my rights to vote back the way the people at the election commission told me and the way the clerk did,” she said at her January 26 hearing.


Judge Michael Ward disagreed, accusing her of intentionally deceiving the probation department by requesting the certificate of completion even though a judge had just told her that she was still on probation.

“You tricked the probation department into giving you documents saying you were off probation. After you were convicted of a felony in 2015, you voted six times as a convicted felon,” Ward said.

Moses claims no one ever told her that pleading guilty to the 2015 charges would result in the loss of her voting rights.

“They never mentioned anything about voting. They never mentioned anything about not voting, being able to vote…none of that,” she said.

Prosecutors contend that Moses knew she was ineligible when she submitted the certificate to the county election commission.

“Even knowing that order denied her expiration of sentence, Pamela Moses submitted that form with her application for voter registration and signed an oath as to the accuracy of the information submitted,” prosecutors said. “Pamela Moses knowingly made or consented to a false entry on her permanent registration.”

Moses has been in police custody since December 10. Her lawyer says she plans to appeal the decision.
