They'll Stop At Nothing, Part 2

Apparently the effort to have developmentally disabled men and women vote for Obama has been happening in other places as well.

In California, State Republicans requested a probe a month ago into a Director of an Adult Care facility taking out 25 absentee ballots and helping as many as ten clients complete the forms.

Among those voting was Michael Rascon, 56, whose father described him as having the mental capacity of a 5-year-old.

"What kind of people would do this to somebody like that," asked Sam Rascon, who discovered his son had registered and voted only after seeing him with an Obama button last Thursday.

"He wouldn't know one candidate from another."

News10 spoke to Michael Rascon at the Thumbs Up! center about the election. When asked which candidate he'd voted for, Rascon answered "the black man." He was unable to remember Obama's name.

When asked why all but one of the ballots was cast for Barack Obama, the Director replied:

"I think maybe Obama would appeal to people with disabilities,"

As of yesterday, there has been no confirmation from the Secretary of State as to whether the investigation has even been initiated.

Maybe we could help get the 1.2 million aborted babies to vote for McCain.

I think Sarah Palin would appeal to people with disabilities.
