In 2013, Moral Monday was in its early protest stages and was trying to spread out into other states. At that time, I reported on a group in Illinois that was using the Moral Monday theme to protest ALEC. They called themselves the Moral Monday Coalition.
Well, this Moral Monday Coalition indeed were arrested during this protest. One member of that coalition was Carl Robert Gibson, who was dumb enough to record his ride in the police transport and post it on Twitter.
In 2013, Gibson, who originally hails from Wisconsin, was arrested at Moral Monday in North Carolina. Remember him?
I’ve well documented what a clown this guy is.
Scroll down to the bottom half of my article from 2013, Occupy Reincarnate: Moral Monday Coalition, and you will find everything you ever wanted to know about this guy, including of both the Illinois and the North Carolina arrest of Gibson. You’ll also find his affiliation to ‘US Uncut’, which is an SEIU-tied group that is also involved in the labor unions ‘raise the minimum wage’ campaign.
Now, flash forward to 2015.
Thanks to a tip from a reader, we have an update on Mr. Gibson’s activities. Back in May of this year, Gibson was apparently arrested and charged with Voter Suppression by the New Hampshire Department of Justice.
The NH DOJ’s press release is below and the emphasis added is mine.
Carl Gibson of Concord Arrested for Voter Suppression
New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster announces that Carl Gibson, 28, of 26 Summit Street, Concord, New Hampshire turned himself into authorities on Thursday afternoon after a warrant for his arrest was issued. Mr. Gibson has been charged with voter suppression for knowingly attempting to induce voters to refrain from voting in this past Tuesday’s special election for state representative in Rockingham District 32. District 32 consists of the towns of Candia, Deerfield, Northwood and Nottingham.
Gibson is accused of providing a false press release to various news sources generally circulated in District 32, alleging that candidate Yvonne Dean-Bailey was dropping out of the race, thereby leaving the impression with voters that the special election was uncontested. Voter suppression is a class B felony. Gibson was additionally charged with the class A misdemeanor for distributing a false document purporting to be issued by Yvonne Dean-Bailey.
Gibson is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, June 22, 2015, at the 6th Circuit Court in Concord, New Hampshire at 8:15 am.
As of October 22, 2015, Gibson was indicted on these charges according to the NH DOJ:
New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster announces that Carl Gibson, 28, of 26 Summit Street, Concord, New Hampshire has been indicted on alternative charges of voter suppression and attempted voter suppression by a Merrimack County Grand Jury.
The indictments allege that Mr. Gibson knowingly attempted to induce, or induced, voters to refrain from voting in the special election for state representative in Rockingham District 32, held on May 19, 2015. It is alleged that on May 14, 2015, Carl R. Gibson issued a false press release to various news sources generally circulated in District 32, stating that candidate Yvonne Dean-Bailey was dropping out of the race, thereby leaving the impression with voters that the special election was uncontested. District 32 consists of the towns of Candia, Deerfield, Northwood and Nottingham.
Both charges are class B felony offenses, carrying a maximum sentence of 3½ – 7 years in state prison and a $4,000 fine.
