This unbelievable story would right now be front page news, and we would have the usual suspects in the LSM doing their best to link Romney to it, if this was done by a republican:
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.
Just wow. And seriously, I find no irony in the revelation that this woman was a top democrat. If this was a republican, we would be hearing how we should not be voting for Romney, because this is what Romney believes in. Just take a look at the regular policies democrats back and force upon us though, to help us, of course, and you will see most of their feel good nonsense is on par with robbing developmentally disabled people in wheel chairs. Heh.
