A Defiance County, Ohio man has been arrested for filing false voter registration forms in exchange for crack cocaine from a Toledo woman working on behalf of the NAACP's voter registration drive.
Chad Staton, 22, of Stratton Ave., faces a fifth-degree felony charge of false registration after sheriff’s deputies said he filled out the registration forms by himself — using either fictitious names or addresses — and gave them to Georgianne Pitts, 41.C'mon, people. This is blatant election hijacking. The moderate and conservative Democrats (and I know there are some) need to put a stop to this. These radical nutjobs have taken over the Democratic Party, and you're the only ones who can stop it.
Toledo police searched Ms. Pitts’ home and discovered drug paraphernalia along with more voter registration forms. Police said that Ms. Pitts admitted to paying Mr. Staton in crack cocaine, in lieu of cash.
Ms. Pitts, working on behalf of the NAACP National Voter Fund, submitted the forms to the voter fund, which in turn submitted them to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
Ms. Pitts told police she had been recruited to obtain voter registration forms by Thaddeus J. Jackson II, of Cleveland, who is coordinating the Toledo area’s voter registration drive for the NAACP voter drive.
