Jeffco ‘Democrat Of The Year’ Convicted Of Felony Theft
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.And the most despicable part? After this came to light, but before it was adjudicated in couret, the victim's family went to the Democrat Party leadership and begged them not to give Estelle Carson this award, citing her confession given to police. But Chris Kennedy, chairman of the Jefferson County Democratic party, just smiled and said that a confession didn't equate to a conviction, and besides, she'd done so much to help register Dem voters.
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.
Now the family is trying to get the award rescinded.
I say leave it. Carson's being publicly identified as the best corrupt person in a corrupt political party suits me just fine.
