Group home accused of taking patients to vote for Obama, as agency disputes claim
By Judson Berger
Published November 05, 2012
The father of a mentally handicapped woman claims his daughter and others were “carted off” to a North Carolina polling site last week and “coaxed” into voting for President Obama by workers of the group home where she stays -- a claim the owner of the home disputes and that apparently has not yet triggered an investigation by election officials.
The father, Cecil Pearson, said his daughter – who is 40 but has the “mentality ... of a 7-year-old”– was “brainwashed the night before” and then taken to a Roanoke Rapids polling site on Friday to vote. He said his daughter told him what happened when he picked her up on Sunday.
“They brought her a piece of paper and they indicated which block to check,” Pearson told FoxNews.com .“She voted for Barack Obama and was coaxed into doing that.” He claimed “more than four” people were brought to the site.
The owner of the home, Easter Seals UCP, is disputing the account. Communications officer Jeff Smith told FoxNews.com , without going into great detail, that “it’s not uncommon” for the homes to provide transportation to polling sites. Asked whether Pearson’s daughter or anyone that day was guided to vote for a particular candidate, he said “not to my knowledge.”

Of course they dispute the claim. The guilty usually don't admit what they've done.

Hi, they didn't need to go by car. They could have done mail in also. Why bother driving anywhere.
