Developmentally Disabled voters coached into supporting Obama

This news story comes from California:

The California Republican party is asking the secretary of state to investigate an organized voting campaign involving developmentally disabled adults in Tuolumne County.

As many as ten clients of the Thumbs Up! adult care center have already cast absentee ballots under the supervision of center director David Simerley, and nearly all of them were for Barack Obama.

"We all registered to vote and we all sat together as a group and went over our ballots and voted," Simerley told News10.

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."

My Comment: Can you imagine using Developmentally Disabled people in this way?

This is the type of things that got NObama to every step in his political career. He CANNOT win on his own values.

It might be their best hope for life; if they can be used in this way, perhaps the liberals will delay in coming around to euthanize them.

That's a brilliant insight and unfortunately this is true with the current Democratic platform which supports the culture of death.

I agree that Obama's campaign must think so little of him that they have to cheat in order for him to win. If the American people knew the whole truth about him, I'm sure he would not even be eligible to run in this upcoming election.
