Jefferson County, Colo. Democrats have revoked 66-year-old Estelle Carson’s 2012 “Democrat of the Year” award, following her conviction on Thursday for stealing from a 71-year-old woman who suffers from both partial blindness and cerebral palsy.

Carson was found guilty of felony identity theft and felony theft from an at-risk person for stealing checks from the woman to pay for cable, cellphone and Internet bills.

Chris Kennedy, chairman of the Jefferson County Democratic Party, disregarded the [criminal investigation] warning.

“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,” Kennedy wrote in an email following the event.

Convicted felon. Democrat of the year. I don’t see the conflict. (But it does seem kind of redundant)

If that had been on her resume when she was nominated, she may have qualified for Democrat of the Decade.

Ironic - being a convicted felon should have clinched it for him.

“Carson is due in court this December. If sentenced, she faces a maximum of nine years in prison.”

No wonder she lost the title. The maximum sentence is only nine years.

stealing from a 71-year-old woman who suffers from both partial blindness and cerebral palsy.

...

tealing checks from the woman to pay for cable, cellphone and Internet bills.

The elderly victim, who is confined to a wheelchair, has a fixed income of $596 per month.

And I read elsewhere that the victim was also mentally handicapped.

That's low.

No different from the AAs in PA who kept mentally and physically disabled people shackled in basements in their own feces to collect their disability checks.

What is it with these people? There should be a punishment severe enough to deter future criminals from taking the same path.

She, the felon, should run for President after we dispose/vote out the current thief.

She has the perfect personal background.

For a democrat politician a felony conviction is a resume enhancement.

So typical of the way Democrats think.

I figure that they took away her “Democrat of the Year” award because she either didn’t give a cut to the party, didn’t steal all of the woman’s assets, or didn’t arrange for the woman to be euthanized as well.

Democrats don't steal; they redistribute.

It takes 3 felonies or 7 misdemeanors to qualify as Democrat of the Year.
(A felony with assault counts double)
Apparently 2 of her felonies were reduced to lower charges and the 1 remaining disqualified her.
