Sanders campaign, New York officials cry foul after New York voters report issues

http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/19/politics/new-york-primary-voter-problem-polls-sanders-de-blasio/

New York City (CNN)Bernie Sanders' campaign on Tuesday called reports of voting irregularities in New York state "a disgrace" as New York City officials contended with the potential for mass confusion in Brooklyn, where the Board of Elections has confirmed that more than 125,000 Democratic voters had been stripped from the rolls.

"From long lines and dramatic understaffing to longtime voters being forced to cast affidavit ballots and thousands of registered New Yorkers being dropped from the rolls, what's happening today is a disgrace," Sanders spokesman Karthik Ganapathy said in an email to CNN, calling the difficulties a "shameful demonstration."
...

"It has been reported to us from voters and voting rights monitors that the voting lists in Brooklyn contain numerous errors, including the purging of entire buildings and blocks of voters from the voting lists," de Blasio said in a statement Tuesday calling on the board to "reverse that purge."
...

The Clinton campaign had no immediate comment when asked by CNN.

1. How will they rectify this?

If those people are allowed to vote with provisional/paper ballots, it is highly unlikely that those votes will ever be counted or matter.

The only way for those votes to count is if they are allowed to vote!

5. They won't do anything about this election.

Anything they do will simply cause objections from the other side.

The placebo ballots will make voters feel like they did something, even if it never counts.

22. They won't rectify it.

The "investigation" will reveal someone who retired in 2017 made "an honest mistake". This investigation will conclude in 2018. At which point we will be told it is time to "look forward, not backward".

2. This was classic voter caging, but who orchestrated it?

I think I know who, but will await more evidence.

3. Now before some Clinton supporter comes here to blame the victims, let's make it clear

 

that people were removed from the voter rolls.

4. Remember when it used to be just republicans being smug about disenfranchisement

 

because it benefits them?

Thanks to the new dems, we have this shit going on in our party now.

So ready to wash my hands of this.

7. I remember when all Dems were against Citizens United. Now the Clinton followers embrace it.

 

I remember when all Dems were against the bias of the Corporate Media. Now the Clinton fans embrace it. To them, it's all about winning.

Vote against a Clinton Aristocracy.

11. Now the corporate media doesn't exist, and any unfairness is just 'whining'

 

Voter disenfranchisement is no big deal, and complaining about it is 'whining'

International trade deals that exploit labor in developing countries is also a good thing now. I have actually seen that RW spew on this very board. It's fucking tragic.

15. How?

 

We've seen again and again how the DNC cuts us off at the knees during primaries. They will ALWAYS back the establishment stooge.

I've seen it happen one too many times. This is it for me. Done.

19. Wait, what? You are demanding that I give you a break down. I said that the Clinton supporters

 

are not the least bit interested in the problems with the election system as long as they win. It's all about winning at any cost. It's all about amassing the biggest wealth.

all voting if they could.
