Brain Damaged Man "Taken to Vote" By Nursing Home

Purely despicable, if true.

Minnesota resident Jim Stene voted last November -- and thought he was casting his ballot for President Gerald Ford.....

Jim Stene, 35, suffers from anoxic encephalopathy, severe brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain. He has lived with the condition since 1987, when, as a 12-year-old boy, he jumped into a river to save the life of his drowning sister, Heather.

... He and other residents of the home were taken to the Crow Wing County auditor's office on Oct. 29 to vote by absentee ballot. Minnesota is among the states that offer early voting by absentee ballot days before Election Day.

This man is as great a hero as any soldier on any battlefield. And somehow I have a funny feeling that he voted for whoever he was told to vote for.

And one guess what party that was.
