Democrat Of The Year
The Jefferson County Democratic Party has named Estelle Carson “Democrat of the Year”. And being a *good* Democrat means having to do typical Democratty things, like:
The woman named “Democrat of The Year” this year by the Jefferson County Democratic Party has been convicted of felony theft by a Jefferson County jury for stealing from a developmentally disabled 71-year-old woman.
“The jury did right,” said Cindy Maxwell, an advocate for the victim.
On Thursday, a jury convicted 66-year-old Estelle Carson of felony identify theft and felony theft from an at risk adult for stealing checks from the woman and using them to pay her own cable, cell phone and internet bills.
The victim is partially blind, developmentally disabled, has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. She is on a fixed income of $596 per month according to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office.
Estelle Carson learned from the best and did what every and all Democrat’s dream about doing – redistributing the wealth.
How dare that ole cripple woman have so much money when Estelle had cable bills to pay? How dare that quadriplegic flaunt that cool $596 a month around when Estelle was (or wasn’t) having trouble paying her IPhone bill? How dare that wheelchair confined, cerebral palsy, disabled bird keep that money for herself when Estelle dun have those internet bills to pay?
The greed is sickening.
The Jefferson County Democratic Party could very well have been tarnished by this scandal, but it’s not as if they knew ahead of time that Estelle was convicted of such heinous crimes. Pardon? They DID know ahead of time? Back the truck up….
According to documents obtained by CBS4, in November of 2011, the Jeffco Democratic Party announced it planned to honor Carson for her activism on behalf of Democratic causes and her efforts to register voters.
But three days before the January 8 gala, advocates for the victim contacted the party via email and phone informing them of the criminal investigation.
One wrote “I am completely appalled,” to learn of the planned honor. The woman suggested the Democratic Party should “un-invite Estelle and not follow through with this honor.”
Cindy Maxwell told CBS4 she informed Democratic Party officials that Carson had already confessed to the theft as part of the investigation.
But Chris Kennedy, chairman of the Jefferson County Democratic party, dismissed the concerns saying there was not a conviction and bestowed the “Democrat Of The Year” honor on Carson.
In an email following the event, Kennedy wrote, “After much consideration, my decision was that the award being presented by my organization and the alleged financial exploitation need to be compartmentalized, one having no bearing on the other. Thus I decided to present the award to Estelle.”
It’s not like Estelle drove the cripple woman into a lake and let her drown. It’s not like that at all. It’s less severe than that. The chick in the wheelchair probably isn’t even good looking.
Good for the JCDP for sticking to their guns. Why let a felony conviction get in the way of a gala? Besides, on a Democrat crime scale, what Estelle did was small cheese. It’s not like she’s a gun owner or anything.
And the closing word will go to victim, Cindy Maxwell”
“I’d like to see her stripped of that award. I have been a Democrat my entire life. I’m disappointed they would allow something like that to happen,” said Maxwell.
Oh, you’re a democrat? Then you should be use to having one of your own pillage you. Suck it up, Buttercup. Oh, and one last thing, that $596 disability cheque you get every month is now $584 thanks to Obama’s tax increases.
Happy New Year!
