"MAN GIVEN CRACK COCAINE TO REGISTER VOTERS ARRESTED IN OHIO...
Thaddeus J. Jackson donates both money and crackheads to the Democratic party. As Assistant NVF Ohio Director of the NAACP National Voter Fund, Mr. Jackson was in charge of the local voter registration efforts. One of the people he paid to get registrations, Georgianne Pitts, in turn gave crack to a 22-year-old crackhead named Chad Staton, for completed registrations. Staton filled out over 100 false registrations before being arrested. Police raided Ms. Pitts home and uncovered drug paraphernalia and more voter registrations.
Thaddeus is no stranger to vote fraud, also been under investigation for alleged voter fraud, by The Cuyahoga County election board. Mr. Jackson turned in 17 voter registration cards with almost identical signatures earlier this year. In an interview, Jackson noted (about the voter registration effort): "It's not just a canvassing effort; this is a new kind of effort that's going to affect the whole nation, It's going to be fireworks. It's going to be explosive."

Mr. Jackson was also a 2000 DNC delegate, as well as the 11th Congressional District coordinator for the NAACP's National Voter Fund.
