Liberals helping the handicapped

Posted by Richard on October 19, 2008

Jack Justice of Albany, GA, spends his days in what's called an "adult day rehab" center. He's what I would describe as "mentally retarded" (which I learned as the correct term for such a condition).

The staff at the day care rehab center, like all good caring liberals, would no doubt chide me for using such a politically incorrect term, calling it insensitive and disrespectful.

But the staff had no moral qualms about taking Jack on a field trip to go vote. And marking his ballot for Obama, even though Jack wanted to vote for McCain:

ALBANY, GA (WALB)There are allegations of voter fraud, as a Dougherty County family claims the vote of a mentally challenged relative was stolen.

They say the adult day rehab program where Jack Justice attends took him to vote, without the family's permission. What's worse is Justice says the person helping him wouldn't cast the ballot for his choice for President.

"They told me to vote for Obama, I said no I wanted to vote for McCain," said Jack Justice, a voter.

Jack Justice says the person helping him, selected Obama's name. His sister says the family is often asked to sign a permission slips for trips, but for this they were never notified.

"No permission slips, no nothing, he just came home and said he had gone," said Nancy Justice, Jack's sister.

We questioned election officials about the procedure, who say they recall the group coming in to vote and an aide was helping the individuals, but they must sign an oath that they'll cast the ballot however the voter prefers

The story doesn't indicate how many individuals were in this group. But I bet I can guess the percentage of Obama votes.

The story does explain what recourse is available:

Election officials say the family's only option is to file a challenge to the election results. …

Yeah, right. That'll fix things.

You may think this is an unfortunate isolated incident, but one of the commenters to the story asserted otherwise:

This has been going on since the 1980's, and I'm glad it's finally coming to light. My mother worked for the Wisconsin State School in Madison, WI in the 1980's. The Democrat aides ordered absentee ballots for the long-term patients (many of whom were of age to vote but had the mentality of 4-5 year olds). When the ballots arrived, they checked the Democrat candidate(s) name, had the patient scratch a signature, and mailed it in. Thereby the aide had many votes herself. The patients weren't aware or understanding of anything that was going on. Like I said this has been going on since the 80's at the hands of Democrat activists. If someone wanted to find this out, I'm sure they could find a lot of it all over the country. It's DISGUSTING!

Disgusting. Despicable. Contemptible. Loathsome. Vile… I can't think of an adjective strong enough for the vermin who do this.

    Didn’t those folks know there were people to notify about that type of voter fraud, instead of waiting twenty years.

    The commenter said her mother worked at the Wisconsin institution. She may have felt that blowing the whistle would jeopardize her job. Which it probably would have.

    The Justice family did go public. The person who cast Jack Justice’s ballot should be facing jail, and there should be an investigation to see if other facility staff did the same thing with other residents. But there’s no mention in the news story of any law enforcement investigation. In fact, the only official response to their complaint basically blows them off:

    ”Election officials say the family’s only option is to file a challenge to the election results.”

    Richard you know I wouldn’t worry too much about these people at this “adult day rehab” calling you politically incorrect for using

    the term “mentally retarded”. The first person ever to use the term “politically incorrect” was none other than Joseph Stalin.

    I’d forgotten that — thanks for reminding me!

    These days, the penalties for political incorrectness are quite a bit milder than Uncle Joe’s. 🙂
