The Perfect Dem - Bipolar, Ex-Con Seeks Democratic Nomination in South Carolina

Dion Douglas is running for Congress. A convicted felon, Douglas is seeking the Democratic Party nomination for the 5th Congressional District.

Thanks to an oddity in federal law, Madison County resident Dion Douglas can run for a seat in the U.S. House even with a felony conviction.

Douglas, 41, is one of five candidates seeking the Democratic Party nomination for the 5th Congressional District. Incumbent Republican Susan Brooks is running unopposed in the May primary.

A first-time candidate for elective office, his wife Kristy is seeking the party’s nomination for Madison County recorder against 2014 candidate Barbara Joy.

If Douglas was running for a Madison County office or a state office, the felony conviction would prevent him from seeking the office.

Douglas in 2009 entered a plea of guilty in Marion County to a Class D felony charge of theft. There was a civil judgment against Douglas in the amount of $88,000 in restitution to a former employer.

“I used a company credit card for personal expenses,” Douglas said during an interview with The Herald Bulletin. “I made a mistake. It was something I did and I accept it.”

He admitted not paying any restitution to his former employer, which would have allowed the felony conviction to be reduced to a misdemeanor charge. Douglas received a suspended sentence.
