Nursing Homes emptying out to vote in Ohio

| October 30, 2008

Boo_Radley, my old buddy in Ohio, sends along some local news;

The family, which didn’t want to be identified, said their father has dementia and wouldn’t even know who the candidates are, let alone for whom to vote, reported NewsChannel5’s Alicia Scicolone.

The father is living in the Good Samaritan nursing home, suffering from severe dementia. The family said they feel he was taken advantage of in the election process.

The nursing home held early voting last week, and the family said they had no idea it was happening until they walked in and saw the sticker their father was wearing.

Family members talked to a nurse about it.

“I said, ‘Nursing home patients are allowed to vote?’ She said, ‘Yeah.’ I say, ‘My father in law was allowed to vote?’ She says, ‘I guess so,'” one family member said.

The family said that’s when they got nervous. They said they asked their father who he voted for and he said he didn’t know.

Boo also sends this from a local radio station;

A Shaker OH woman called WTAM to state that she had just taken her 18yo daughter to vote for the first time since she’ll be visiting a college next week and witnessed a busload of cognitively disabled assisted living residents come in to vote. The people who brought them filled out their forms, as they were not even able to do this themselves. This happened in downtown Cleveland and she called the Cuyahauga (sp) BOE.

I guess the Obama crew couldn’t wait for them to die and resurrect their vote.

Michelle Malkin has more instances from across the country.

  1. We renew these people’s driver licenses even after they’ve gone blind, pay billions into the Medicare program so they can scuttle around in Rascals, so why would you think we’d stop them from voting?

    If McCain wanted to win it, he’d bring up how awesome Matlock was.

    It is completely unethical (and, I assume in some cases, illegal) to go against the wishes of a disabled person or “steal” their vote. Fraud is rampant and organized, one Mom I know personally had this happen to her 26-yr-old disabled son, she protested his registration and then was informed by her son after the fact that he had been taken to the polls and they had ‘voted for him.’
