"Democrat of the Year" convicted of stealing from wheelchair-bound blind woman.

Sometimes, the stories just write themselves.

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.

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.
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.

Now the family is trying to get the award rescinded.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.


  1. Yeah, I'm impre... er... depressed by this one, apparently they KNEW she was up on charges, and presented it to her anyway. Kinda tells me how they think.

  2. Yeah....I think that giving her the award (while she's wearing an institutional-orange jumpsuit!) is probably the best statement anyone can make about the Dem party. So. Give her the award. Then throw her sorry arse in a deep, dark hole for a long, long time. General population, none of this minimum-security country-club crap.

  3. Ah, but in addition to robbing her blind, was she also going to help make sure this woman and others like her voted Democrat, or just steal their identity as well as their money and vote for them?

  4. Aaron,

    Victim's roommate here. YES, Ms. Carson said TO ME that she intended to "take [victim] to REregister as a Democrat."
    I was taken aback and replied, Ï believe that is [victim]'s decision."
    To which Ms. Carson replied, "Well, that's how she's going to vote anyway."

    This conversation took place WHILE she was already stealing from my roommate.

  5. Justice for All:

    No wonder she got the Democrat of the Year award then: Democrat fund raising and generating a Democrat vote all at the same time!
