Figures… “Democrat of the Year” Convicted of Stealing Checks From 71 Year-Old Blind Woman with Cerebral Palsy

Estelle Carson was named “Democrat of the Year” while she was under investigation for stealing from a partially blind, developmentally disabled 71 year-old woman with cerebral palsy.
The “Democrat of the Year” faces up to nine years in prison.

She was a shoo-in for the award.
CBS Denver reported:

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.

    My pardon. I should have used the word villain.

    It’s not my fault. Biden had control of my keyboard.

  • RKflorida

    Her crime is beyond the pale. How could anyone harm this poor lady? There is a God and he will judge us all.

    Crooks honoring crooks.

    And saying the one has no bearing on the other, they don’t say that about a Republican.

    We have a dishonest person who was active in voter registration on behalf of Democrats, raising the possibility that she committed fraud in that activity as well. Perhaps the voter rolls need to be examined.

    Lying, theft, misogyny……ALL are resume enhancers for the DEMs!

    See that Obama commercial starring the serial misogynist and convicted Liar, Willie Jeff? He’s a DEM Super Star!

    Obama in a microcosim…SHE’S BLACK…We need to compartmentalize her character failings because they have no bearing on the fact SHE’S BLACK…..Besides she donated some of the stolen money to Obama’s political campaign . We admire that level of dedication. Somebody who would steal the last penny of a disabled blind old widow to move this country FORWARD deserves the highest in honors.

    “Democrat of The Year”: The Dems know how to pick them.

  • Noovuss

    A very dysfunctional subculture created by Demorats to serve Demorats and the rest of us get to pay for it.

  • Nick

    Just part of the democratic war on handicap women. This party is full of the scum of society.

    Isn’t that the truth.

  • dwd

    And the question becomes, how much WORSE must the other contenders for the “award” have been, that this specimen won it?

  • Economan

    She can’t be Democrat of the year, she didn’t also beat her and force her to vote for Obama.

  • Buffalobob

    Another instance of a democratic committing a felony. The fact that she was named Democratic of the year, made it hard for the press to not refer to her party affiliation.

  • its the party of moral superiority.

    …when the d-cRAT socialists can’t TAX it out of you, they just outright STEAL it from you.

  • paul52

    I agree with #19 ‘dwd’. Who the hell was runner-up in this beauty contest? How about a mug shot of Ms. Carson?

  • xiphos

    #24: Ms. Carson could’ve been Obama’s sister.

  • Rider

    not to sound racist but- the criminal’s color is,,,,,

    remember- if she were white there would be calls for racist out-rage–

  • Sherry

    Disgusting. And ludicrous. Who is more needy than a 71 year old, who is partially blind, in a wheelchair, with cerebral palsy, and developmentally disabled, living on $596 a month? How heartless, and depraved, can you be, to steal from someone like that? And how ridiculous is it to choose someone who is under investigation for stealing from them, as ANYTHING of ANY year? I hope they throw away the key to that cell, and make it known who did the choosing on that award.

    Estelle Carson looks like she could be the real mom of a certain someone in the white house. They both share the same views on stealing from others.

  • Nathan51

    Please explain how this is any different from what they are doing to all of us! The damnoldrats pass COLA because according to them granny is eating dog food. After the media goes away they pull food, energy and housing from inflation calculations. Now granny won’t get a Cost of Living adjustment that will actually reflect what has happened to food and energy prices. This is how the government liars and thieves can issue a phony inflation report of a couple percent a year and yet food and energy prices have more than doubled in four years. The theft doesn’t end there. The cooked inflation numbers also are used to justify ridiculously low earnings on savings and investments. And guess who gets squeezed the worst on this? Granny that is living on a fixed income from her life savings to supplement Social Security! The only difference between this damnoldrat and the others is she just used a little more direct, targeted approach.

  • Justice for All

    As the roommate of the victim, I’d like to respond to some of the questions here. Yes, Ms. Carson had been charged with the crime at the time of the award ceremony. Yes, Ms. Carson did, in fact, intend to force the victim to register and vote Democrat and even stated so to my face.
