Kiryas Joel Satmar Voter Fraud

Illegal Satmar election stamp Orange County, NY 9-2013Kiryas Joel's newly registered Working Families voters had a unique tool to help them Tuesday: a stamp that printed the name Niki Lee Rowe on the ballot. Rowe, the wife of county Legislator Michael Amo, isn't running for county executive, but was chosen [by Satmar rabbis] to be the not-Donnery candidate. An election inspector confiscated the stamp and turned it over to David Green, the county's Republican election commissioner.

Illegal Satmar election stamp Orange County, NY 9-2013

The relatively new opportunity-to-ballot petition allows New York State candidates to force primaries for third-party lines and wage write-in campaigns to challenge the endorsed candidates of their parties – and it's wreaking havoc on the election process.

In 2009, only three write-in primaries for third-party lines reportedly took place in Orange, Ulster and Sullivan counties. In 2013 there were reportedly 30 – ten times more.

Arguably, the most prominent example of this phenomenon took place in the Orange county executive race, as the Times Herald-Record reports:

…Democratic candidate Roxanne Donnery had gotten the customary blessing of the Working Families Party to run on its ballot line, but found herself challenged by her adversaries in the [Satmar hasidic] Village of Kiryas Joel, who petitioned for a primary and signed up dozens of new voters in the labor-backed party.

And when the results came in on Tuesday, the write-ins led Donnery, 90-51, with a few election districts plus absentee ballots yet to be counted.…

An election inspector confiscated the stamp and turned it over to David Green, the county's Republican election commissioner. He said Friday that stamping Rowe's name on ballots was legal, although circulating the stamp inside the polling station wasn’t.…

The Times Herald-Record notes f Rowe does win when all the votes are counted, and if she decides to accept the nomination, Donnery and the Republican candidate, Steve Neuhaus, might have grounds to challenge her right to run in the general election

Why?

Election records reportedly show she has been registered to vote in Saratoga County – not Orange County where Kiryas Joel is located – since 2008.

As for KJ's Satmar hasidim, their Brooklyn affiliates were linked to massive vote fraud that allegedly included buying votes and sending waves of underage teens to vote using false names to elect the candidates chosen by their rebbe, Rabbi Aharon Teotelbaum.

I don't know what's more offensive - the fraud or the stupidity. If they're going to cheat, can't they at least familiarize themselves with the law so they can do it effectively and not look like damn fools?

Or are those regulations for goyim as well?

jeff - 'goyim' is pretty offensive - akin to nigger

"jeff - 'goyim' is pretty offensive - akin to nigger"

I find myself saying this a lot on this site, today. Here we go, one more time...

Yes, THAT WAS MY POINT.

goyim or nigger?

You're a fucking idiot. Stay away from me.

Goyim is an offensive term?

Yeah.......right.

The civil law will catch up to them. Their boldness will be their downfall. What these Satmars due violate Jewish law too. When the religious fail to police themselves, hopefully the newly elected civil officials will.

A new scheme is born every day. Looks like some people have too much time on their hands, I think Goyim is probably not meant asbavtermmof endearment, but it is not as offensive as the 'N"word.

Depending on context, goyim can simply mean gentiles in a neutral way or it can be like the n word. It literally means "nations" (singular, goy). The Jewish people is also called a goy, a nation. But let's not be naive. When one is speaking English rather than Yiddish or Hebrew it is usually a derogatory word.

Obviously, my original point was that this is how *they* think - the rules of society are for "the goyim", not for them.
