Estelle Carson, Democrat of the Year, convicted of stealing from disabled woman in Colorado
'Democrat of the Year' busted for stealing from disabled elderly woman

Estelle Carson probably won't be winning any more citizenship awards. The Colorado activist, who was named "Democrat of the Year" by the Jefferson County Democratic Party in January, has been convicted of stealing money from a partially blind, wheelchair-bound 71-year-old.

The embarrassing conviction, which has stripped Carson not only of the JeffCo title but the likelihood of any future do-gooder awards, comes after a jury said she stole checks from a developmentally disabled woman with cerebral palsy. The victim was on a fixed income of $596 per month, yet Carson used her money to pay her own cable, cell phone and internet bills. Think they'll call her "Inmate of the Year" in prison? [Source]

What should happen to Carson?
