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.

I believe David Horowitz wrote a column about this, as his mentally disabled BIL told the family he had voted for Obama and didn´t know who Obama was! Horowitz was outraged.
Do a search for the column.

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.

National Average Goal
Unique To Education Pay
Carolina Journal (Raleigh, NC), by Don Carrington    Original Article
Posted By: rivlax- 1/6/2014 10:05:52 AM     Post Reply
Education leaders and some politicians for years have urged that pay for educators in North Carolina be at “the national average,” a goal used for no other employment sector in the state as a metric to gauge the appropriateness of pay. [SNIP] Using BLS data, CJ compared each state’s private-sector and public education average pay to the national average, resulting in a percentage for each, which may be thought of as an index.

N.C. Voter Laws Would Remain
More Liberal Than In Many States

The terms “voter suppression” and “outrageous” were bandied about during the recent debate over North Carolina´s voter ID and election law reforms. Editorial boards from Raleigh to New York inveighed against the alleged “intolerance” shown by North Carolina lawmakers’ electoral reforms. But comparing election laws in North Carolina with those of other states shows that the Tar Heel State has had and — even if Gov. Pat McCrory signs House Bill 589, passed in the legislative session’s closing hours — would continue to maintain fairly liberal access to voting, especially when contrasted with several Northeastern states.

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 Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
