Cecil Pearson’s daughter Darlene told him she voted for Barack Obama for president. President of what? Cecil says Darlene couldn’t tell you. Darlene, 40, is developmentally disabled and functions cognitively at about the level of a 7-year old. She lives in a group home with five other adult women in Roanoke Rapids. “I was shocked when I learned she had voted,” Pearson told Carolina Journal. “She has never voted. My wife and I became her legal guardians in 1996 to prevent exploitation like this.

This is maddening but not surprising. Examples of this type of voter manipulation and fraud abound. Someone should attempt to prosecute this and find out just WHO delivered the votes. Grease some palms . People will talk. Creating fear that if caught you will be prosecuted is one way to discourage this type of thing. It´s disgusting.

I was a Republican polling judge in St. Louis County, Missouri in the last election. A black woman brought-in her adult son with Down´s Syndrome. She voted and "helped" him vote also. It seemed that he was not really aware of what was occurring and certainly did not have the cognitive power to understand complex political issues. With love and respect I ask, why do we allow people to "help" the mentally disabled to vote? The mother was really just voting twice for Hussein Obama.

Time for someone to be charged with Voter Fraud and do the Perp walk.

You can dismiss the charges later - but you will send a message.

The dims are the party of crooks, loons and spending money. How sad that a mentally ill person is dragged in to vote for whoever her family or voter aids suggest. Illegal? I think so, but then that is the dim way. Bunch of crooks and liars.

The Pearsons could have avoided this problem as soon as absentee ballots were being mailed out in their state. They could have started talking to their daughter about voting during this time and kept in touch with her about how her residential facility was getting involved in the process. The minute she responded by telling them she was going to vote, what the facility´s staff were telling her about the candidates, how they were going to help her, etc., the Pearsons could have nipped the problem in the bud and discussed voting with her.

They could also have made this story public during election season that way (although there would likely not be much of a difference, given how stories like this get buried).

A similar thing happened a few years ago in northern California with parents of a developmentally disabled young lady who told them she had to vote for Obama. They went public with their story, and the day program their daughter attended apologized to all the angry families who found out.

This is the most disgusting event I saw or heard about within this past POTUS election. I wonder if these care takers were paid to illicit these Special and mentaly handicapped people to vote for Obama. Acorn will do anything to get a vote for BHO. After all, the Late Community Organizer has a skill after all.That is stealing from the mentaly incompetent.
I´ll bet he is proud of how his buddies on the street caught votes anyway they could get them....what pukes

First time I observed this on a massive scale was when Corzine ran for the Senate from NJ.

Busloads of mentally disabled folks voting with the help of their aides.

Next they´ve gone to using absentee ballots for people confined to institutions. People with NO awareness at all of the exploitation.

This happened to me and my daughter, who lives in a residential home and functions at a 2 year old level. When I found out and complained, they couldn´t understand why! They said "this way, you get to vote twice"...no, here in Chicago, that means she cancelled my vote!! I put a stop to it but I know the other residents are taken to vote! Disgusting!!!!

Past Governor, James Doyle, earned the name
in Wisconsin as "Jim Bingo Doyle" because he organized or had organized a group of his people to go to nursing homes and "assist the elderly play Bingo" The game was set up on the day of voting, so those lovely volunteers were only too eager to help the elderly in marking their ballots. The volunteers have no shame, the newspapers didn´t write about it or expose it - why should they? These people act in the interet of the MSM.

Unfortunately most disabled people get some form of government assistance. It makes sense that they would vote for the handout party, even if they had a complete understanding of what was going on.

North Carolina psychologist John Rosemond’s popular parenting advice column has been syndicated in more than 200 newspapers across the country since 1976, but soon it may disappear from all newspapers in the state of Kentucky. In May, Kentucky’s attorney general sent Rosemond a letter asking that he “cease and desist” publishing his Dear-Abby-style advice column in the state, saying that doing so constituted the unlicensed “practice of psychology,” a crime punishable by $500 per offense and up to 6 months in jail.

A Long Island, N.Y., woman has spent nearly two years trying to convince the Internal Revenue Service and the U. S. Postal Service that persons with Hispanic-sounding surnames using her address to obtain tax refunds from the IRS are part of a fraud scheme. She has not found a government agency that will stop the phony tax refunds from arriving in her mailbox. Instead, federal and state authorities pass the buck. The checks, including some offering payment for Hurricane Sandy “relief” to people who may not exist, keep coming.

Clinton residents Angela Christina Lainez-Flores and her daughter Karen Mejia filed fraudulent federal tax returns for refunds totaling $1.4 million from tax years 2006 through 2012, IRS special agent Bennett Strickland stated Thursday at a probable cause hearing in a Raleigh federal courtroom. This type of crime often is referred to as Stolen Identity Refund Fraud, or SIRF, and the IRS has described it as the No. 1 tax fraud scheme for 2013.

When a woman named Veronica tried to cash a federal income tax refund check for $8,113 April 5 at a Sampson County check-cashing business, instead of a handful of cash she was greeted by members of the Sampson County sheriff’s office who suspected that her tax refund was the result of a fraudulent tax return. [SNIP] They detained Veronica, seized the check, which had been issued March 22, and made a copy of the tax return and a driver’s license from Honduras that she used at the check cashing business to establish her identity.

Bill Sherrill feels like he has an uphill battle in an effort to continue self-distributing the beer he brews at Red Oak Brewery in Guilford County. He chooses to hire people to distribute his beer instead of going through a distributor. But under current state law, that option would not be available to him once he tops 25,000 barrels of beer per year. [SNIP] Sherrill believes he’s fighting against a powerful lobbying group in the N.C. Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association. He’s tried to get the cap raised in past years, but his efforts have gotten nowhere.

The victims of stolen-identity tax refund fraud are real people, not just statistics. Two of them, whose names came up in a Carolina Journal investigation into tax refund fraud, are Jody A. Freed, of Slatington, Pa., and Evan Russell, who lives in Raleigh. CJ´s investigation of SIRF originated from a tip from a Durham retiree who discovered that the mailbox at his home was being used as a drop site for a tax fraud scheme. [SNIP] The reporting has unearthed refunds from the federal government and from revenue departments in several states, including North Carolina.

A stolen-identity tax refund scheme uncovered by a Durham retiree in March apparently is so widespread that one federal official has described it as the “No. 1 tax scam for 2013.” [SNIP] In short, criminals file fake tax returns in the name of a taxpayer, but do it before the real taxpayer gets around to it. Then, the IRS, in an effort to provide good service, sends a refund check to the criminal before it learns from employers if the refund actually is warranted.

The director of state facilities for the mentally ill and developmentally disabled said his department will continue to offer annual voter registration and voting assistance for patients and residents. He also said that while efforts are made to notify patients’ guardians about voting activities, a patient’s right to vote takes priority over any objections from guardians. [SNIP] The laws and rules governing voting by mentally challenged individuals remain murky, and it’s unclear whether state employees who assisted disabled patients and residents to cast ballots at early voting sites were complying with the law.

Recent stepped-up voter registration efforts at state mental hospitals and facilities for the developmentally disabled resulted in the registration of Wendell Justin Williamson, who in 1995 killed two people in Chapel Hill and was judged not guilty by reason of insanity. Election records show Williamson, a patient at Central Regional Hospital in Butner, was registered on Sept. 13 as an unaffiliated voter. He cast an absentee ballot that was accepted Oct. 15 by the Granville County Board of Elections.

Cherry Hospital, a state-run adult inpatient psychiatric facility in Goldsboro, welcomed a federally funded nonprofit organization to conduct a voter registration drive of mental patients, likely a violation of state law. Moreover, a memo from a hospital administrator indicated the nonprofit, Disability Rights North Carolina, assisted patients in completing absentee ballots, which may have been illegal as well. Records from the Wayne County Board of Elections obtained by Carolina Journal show 34 persons using Cherry Hospital’s address — 201 Stevens Mill Road in Goldsboro — are registered to vote.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
