MAN GIVEN CRACK COCAINE TO REGISTER VOTERS ARRESTED IN OHIO
Mon Oct 18 2004 13:26:03 ET

October 18, 2004

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 SheriffÕs 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.

You can bet "Tron" or "Biggums" from the Dave Chappelle show will be showing up to register to vote.

I'm aware of the NAACP. I'm aware of what's been going on in Ohio. I am also not a liberal.

The article does not specify which party the registration cards were filled out for. Look at the facts.

You know what happens when you assume?

De' is keepin da black man down wid crack... no wait a minute, we are keeping ourselves down. The NAACP really gives black people a bad rep. I guess it would be like white people being represented by some white power group.

Typical Dem tactics...remember they passed out cigarettes and booze to the homeless in Milwaukee in 2000 in exchange for votes.

manghu67 - I'll bet you every gun in my gun safe that this guy was registering democrats.

NAACP + DNC + crack cocaine = bulk new voter registrations.

The worst part of this is that nobody will be surprised and nobody will bat an eye over it. I'll be very surprised if this gets any play in the mainstream media.

I am from this area (NW OH)...I have lived here most of my life...and I would not put it beyond the local DNC to do stuff like this, and more.

It's irrelevent what was on the cards -- the guy filled them out with ficticious info. The only things that are relevent are the facts that cocaine was paid to get registrations and whom the registrar was working for.

This is gonna create a sh*tstorm.

And knowing what I know, I bet you're probably right, I'm simply calling attention to the fact that it doesn't mention the party they were registering for. I wonder why?

By saying "Everyone knows they were registering dems," without any factual information to back that statement up, you are making an assumption.

Me? I'm not interested in assumptions, I'm interested in facts. So we can have some witty banter back an forth all day long, it doesn't change the FACT that the original story is missing at least one vitally important detail.

You make a very valid point.

I dare say there is a very valid reason why nowhere in the story is it mentioned any part affiliation. Because when there is a negative story involving Democrats, the press does what it can to downplay it. But when there is a Republican involved, or even alleged to have been, they plaster that all over the pages.

Thats my point exactly.

And I think that it IS important to know what party is doing this. If it's the dems, then it's just another nail in the coffin and a good thing as far as most people here are concearned. If it's not the dems, then that presents a rather large problem for us.

It doesn't have to, the NAACP has endorced sKerry for president it's rather self explanitory, there is no assumption involved. There doesn't need to be.
