Mental Hospital Voter Sign-Up Questioned
Patients registered without local election officials' OK
By Don Carrington
Oct. 26th, 2012

RALEIGH — Cherry Hospital, a state-run adult inpatient psychiatric facility in Goldsboro, welcomed a federally funded nonprofit organization to conduct a voter registration drive of mental patients, likely a violation of state law.

Moreover, a memo from a hospital administrator indicated the nonprofit, Disability Rights North Carolina, assisted patients in completing absentee ballots, which may have been illegal as well.


North Carolina General Statute 163-226.3 makes it a Class I felony for anyone other than the legal guardian or close relative of a hospital or nursing home patient to apply for an absentee ballot or fill out that ballot on the patient’s behalf.

This is arrogant abuse of patients. People assisted in thus voting are being used as puppets.

Republicans need to stand up against all such antics; whether in mental hospitals, rest homes; bussing from homeless shelters; as well, of course, as bribed voters, given money or drugs to vote, and dead voters.

Unfortunately, many who should know better, have been cowed with the idea that we need to make sure that everyone who could possibly vote, do so, whether or not the choices voted for reflect actual intelligent thoughts of the voter.

Early voting has got to go. Illegal voting has got to end. Everyone is getting in the game, and it will be the end of the republic. Every election will be questioned, and the fight will end up in the streets.

Congress can legislate the handling of elections for federal office. That's a start. If Romney gets in in spite of the rampant fraud everywhere, first priority should be given to creation of a separate law enforcement bureau, devoted to investigating and prosecuting voter fraud. Make the penalty a felony and serious jail time. Put Chicago, Cleveland, Philly, and Madison out of business. Add protections like voter ID, which the people support. Create a national secretary of state that keeps track of voters the way the irs keeps track of taxpayers.

If we dont address it now, it will soon be too late, it is just too easy to overwhelm the system with fraud.

Yes. We keep hearing about all these abuses/illegal acts by the dems, but we never hear that anybody is doing anything about them. Is it lack of reporting the whole story, or are the cheaters simply being allowed to get away with the fraud?

There is currently no penalty for cheating. Get caught, resign from the campaign at worst. Then get paid off under the table. The state entities responsible for keeping elections clean are in cahoots with the cheaters. They are union employees. That's why we need a squeaky clean force of feds from out of state to go into these places and start rounding them up. Get the low levels and work your way up the chain. Then start putting them in jail for 5 years. It's worse than theft, it's a terrorist act that will bring the country to chaos.

We can fight about the politics, but both sides need to be absolutely sure that the votes are fair, or else the only way to gain redress is to fight. The commies might like that, because they try to seize power in such circumstances, but we cannot let them. And, I frankly would rather vote out the hippies and marxists in charge now, and humiliate them, and send them packing, than have to shoot them because they stole an election in the process of trying to steal my property. So, the time is now to fix the voting system. And a whole lot of other things. Because soon it will be too late to fix.

I agree and I also think that conservatives/Tea Parties need to make it a priority after the election. We need to stay on this issue like a bull-dog to get this fraud put to rest for good. If we don’t it’s only going to get worse.
