Looks like the Dems have upgraded their voter fraud give-aways from cigarettes in 2000 to crack cocaine in 2004. Here's the story:

The Defiance County Sheriff's Office arrested Chad Staton, age 22, of Stratton Ave., Defiance, on a charge of False Registration, in Violation of Section 3599.11 of the Ohio Revised Code, a felony of the fifth degree.

The Sheriff’s Office alleges that Staton filled out over 100 voter registration forms that were fictitious. Staton was to be paid for each registration form that he could get citizens to fill out. However, Staton himself filled out the registrations and returned them to the woman who hired him from Toledo, Ohio. Deputies allege that Staton was paid crack cocaine for the falsified registrations.

Defiance Deputies along with Toledo Police Department detectives conducted a search warrant of a residence on Woodland in Toledo, believed to be the home of the woman who hired Staton to solicit voter registration. Officers confiscated drug paraphernalia along with voter registration forms from the home. The occupant of the home, Georgianne Pitts, age 41, advised law enforcement, along with Ohio B.C.I.&I., that she had been recruited by Thaddeus J. Jackson, II, of Cleveland, to obtain voter registrations. Pitts admitted to paying Staton crack cocaine for the registrations in lieu of money.

A business card provided by Pitts indicated that Jackson is the Assistant NVF Ohio Director of the NAACP National Voter Fund.

The initial complaint received by the Sheriff's Office came from the Defiance County Board of Elections. The Board had received the 100 plus registration forms from the Cuyahoga Board of Elections that had been submitted to the Cuyahoga Board by the NAACP National Voter Fund.

while it certainly looks suspicious, there is nothing in this article that proves the naacp is paying anybody in crack...

a person recruited for voter registration is not "the naacp"...

there is no evidence cited in the article which would establish that the naacp knew of or condoned the use of payment in crack to pay voters to register...

indeed, there is no hard evidence that the naacp or any other organization, democrat or republican, is actually paying voters to register...

i've heard that's illegal...

I've sometimes seen that guy underneath the bridge holding a sign, "Will forge voter registrations for crack." I always figured he was just looking for a handout and if I actually had offered him some crack to forge voter registrations he would be too lazy too. This restores my faith in the American work ethic.
