He was convicted of first-degree murder at the age of 18 when the former drug dealer killed a teenager. Now, nearly 3 decades later, that teenager is still dead, but his killer, 44 yr. old Joel Castón is now making history as the city’s first person to be elected to a public office while incarcerated. His dead victim will never make history.
Thanks to the liberals in Washington DC who passed a law allowing prisoners to vote in elections, Carson won his election in a landslide, picking up 47 of the 48 votes he received from fellow prisoners.
So, in other words, people who are serving time inside prison for committing crimes against innocent victims, now have the ability to elect fellow prisoners to make decisions on behalf of the communities where their victims may be living.
It’s nothing new for crooks to serve in office, but this one committed his crime before his election.
