I am an American living in Ireland. I have a postal vote in the U.S. Presidential elections in California. I also understand mental health issues and wanted to make a statement about our loss of Kate Fitzgerald with my vote now sent in. Kate was head of Democrats Abroad in Ireland during the last US election. She had great potential. Our loss. I did not vote for Obama this time, instead I decided a more suitable write-in candidate should be elected (see above).
I also want to say the silence of Democrats in Ireland over this matter has been deafening. I hope her parents find solace. A full investigation is still warranted.
