NAACP Official convicted of vote fraud

The Tunica Times (of Tunica, Mississippi) reports:
After two days of testimony and an hour of deliberation, a Tunica County jury returned a guilty verdict in the case against community activist Lessadolla Sowers.
Sowers was convicted of 10 counts of voter fraud and was sentenced to five years for each count. Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster ordered Sowers to serve her terms concurrently with no possibility of parole. She was also ordered to pay restitution and court costs.
The verdict came after the state presented evidence that Sowers committed voter fraud in the weeks leading up to the democratic primary in 2007.
In his opening remarks, prosecutor Bill Gresham said 31 absentee ballots were seized by the Mississipi Bureau of Investigation in 2007 after allegations of misconduct. [Emph. added]
Ms. Lessadolla Sowers is currently listed as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee.

Curiously, the Tunica Times story is now 22 hours old and a google news search currently shows no other MSM outlet carrying the story.

Hat tip: Instapundit and The PJ Tatler.

I'm not sure it's all that curious. I get the impression that unless AP picks it up, nobody else is going to report it. Well, except for the New York Times who is perfectly willing to make things up. But this doesn't fit their narrative.
