For decades, insiders have used New York’s Arkansas law on appeals to frustrate outsiders’ candidacy. So it is poetic justice that the state’s highest court has just dropped two incoming MPs from the June ballot.
In a 5-2 vote, the state court of appeals ruled that three-term Assemblywoman Rebecca Ciuritt (D-Manhattan) would not forgive the failure to submit the appropriate documents to appear in line with the epidemic of Democratic and working family parties.
In a 5-4 decision, the same court The petition is invalid Carmen Arroyo (de Bronx), a 26-year-old Albanian veterinarian, said they were “terrified” of the fraud.
The rulings also reprimanded the machine-controlled lower courts that ruled that the two seats were in favor of the June ballot.
The political careers of both lawyers have effectively ended – although Civet supporters have expressed hope that Govt. Andrew Cuomo will be allowed to collect ballot application opportunities to get him as independent in the November ballot.
All decisions to ensure victory for Republican Louis Puliafito in Manhattan’s East Side and Democratic Challenger Amanda Septimo in the Bronx.
The entire electoral system of the state – from the election law to the board of elections to the courts – is designed to protect those responsible. But the Arken method can also frustrate insiders – if the court is honest.
Kudos appealed to the court to do the right thing.
