Bernie Sanders Fires Up Connecticut Crowd

(snip)
He spoke for about an hour to the energetic crowd with only one pause to help direct medical personnel to a person who passed out in the crowd.

Sanders began his speech to the packed Green by ripping the current system and the concentrated wealth.

(snip)
State Sen. Gary Holder-Winfield spoke at the podium and said campaign finance reform in Connecticut allowed him to run against the New Haven political machine and win. He worked on several prominent issues including abolishing the death penalty in the state and said many people told him he was dreaming when it came to his political goals.

"Dream tonight for a win in Connecticut for Bernie Sanders that they say can't happen."

Kaminsky declares victory in 9th District Senate race

Democratic Assemb. Todd Kaminsky declared victory over Republican Christopher McGrath on Tuesday night in the race to replace former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos — a high-profile special election with control of the State Senate potentially in the balance.

With 70 percent of precincts reporting, Kaminsky led McGrath 53 percent to 45 percent, according to the county Board of Elections.

(snip)
“When we started this campaign I promised I would fight as hard as I could. We would not stand for putting special interests ahead of Long Island interests,” Kaminsky said. “We sent a message to the special interests and the smoke-filled backrooms: We will not take it anymore.”

Amid Widespread Reports of Voter Disenfranchisement and Polling Problems, Controller Stringer, audit

AMID WIDESPREAD REPORTS OF VOTER DISENFRANCHISEMENT AND POLLING PROBLEMS, COMPTROLLER STRINGER ANNOUNCES AUDIT OF BOARD OF ELECTIONS

With the New York City Board of Elections confirming that more than 125,000 voters in Brooklyn were removed from voter rolls and widespread reports of voters having trouble accessing polling sites and other polling irregularities, New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer announced today that his office would undertake an audit of the operations and management of the Board of Elections. “There is nothing more sacred in our nation than the right to vote, yet election after election, reports come in of people who were inexplicably purged from the polls, told to vote at the wrong location or unable to get in to their polling site,” Comptroller Stringer said. “The people of New York City have lost confidence that the Board of Elections can effectively administer elections and we intend to find out why the BOE is so consistently disorganized, chaotic and inefficient. With four elections in New York City in 2016 alone, we don’t have a moment to spare.” To read Comptroller Stringer’s letter informing Michael J. Ryan, Executive Director of the New York City Board of Elections, that his office would commence an audit, click here.
