Two Suffolk County election workers and a local Independence party leader were charged with forging signatures on nominating petitions in an attempt to boost the chances of GOP candidates, according to a Wednesday Newsday report.

A local Republican party leader, Amos Goodman, is expected to be charged later this week on similar counts.

Election workers William Mann and Gregory Dickerson and party leader Patricia Mansir allegedly wrote false names, some belonging to dead people, on Green Party, Independence and Republican nominating petitions to try to increase the chances for the Republican candidates.

All three have pleaded not guilty.

6. The spirit of Alfonse D'amato lives on!

For those who don't know, D'amato was a deeply corrupt GOP politician from Long Island. He's still alive at 81 but thankfully we don't hear too much from him these days.
