County’s Democrat Of The Year Convicted Of Felony Theft

You just can’t make this stuff up.  

Here is an excerpt from a story being reported by CBS Denver:

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)- 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.

Nearly as bothersome as the theft itself to Maxwell and other supporters of the victim, is the fact the Jefferson County Democratic Party was made aware of the ongoing criminal investigation and honored Carson anyway.

    Seems that felony theft and especially stealing from an elderly, developmentally and physically disabled person would be the primary qualifier for Democrat of the year.

    Typical model Democrat. Stealing from those least able to defend themselves

    “Hey, you’re up for Democrat of the Year. Except…”

    “Except what?”

    “We need you to prove you’re really a Democrat.”

    Anyone want to bet she’s voted under the victim’s name as well?
