According to the minutes of the July 7th, 2015 meeting. Michael J. Ryan the Executive Director of the New York City Board of Elections was reported as saying: “The total amount of Intent to Cancel (ITC) Letters mailed citywide were 168,197. The total amount of voters cancelled is 157,057. The total amount of National Change of Address (NCOA) Letters that are ‘Moved out of the City” are 43,505, and the total amount of “Transfers” are 75,797.

This report shows that they were aware of these issues as early as July of last year and did nothing to curtail their major screw up that was the New York primary.

One commissioner named John Flateau inquired about the high amount  of voter cancellations in Brooklyn and requested for cancellation numbers by Assembly District. The minutes record that the following BOE Commissioners were present at the meeting:   Jose Araujo, Ronald Castorina, John Flateau, Maria R. Guastella, Alan Schulkin, Michael Rendino, Simon Shamoun, Frederic M. Umane.

According to KingsCountyPolitics.com:

The revelation that both Ryan and a majority of the commissioners were aware of this mass purging of voters and that Flateau raised a red flag comes as the Board suspended without pay both both chief clerk Diane Haslett-Rudiano, a Republican, and Deputy Clerk at the Brooklyn borough office Betty Ann Canizio, a Democrat.

    It’s called democracy at work, especially when an outsider like Sanders poses a threat to the establishment. Clinton’s coronation will be an illegal nomination. Well she is not getting my vote.

  • It appears they were targeting Brooklyn knowing Sanders will get lots of votes there. This is definitely no accident. This is a deliberate attack on the Constitutional rights of Hillary’s opponent in the presidential primaries by the DNC. When these kind of things happen, we no long live in a democracy, if we ever did. This is a dictatorship wearing democracy clothes.

    This continuing election theft by HRC/DNC is why- if they succeed in denying Bernie Sanders the victories that are being stolen from him and from us- his followers WILL NOT vote for the fraudulent candidate Hillary. She is earning their eternal disdain.
