Hey SJ Tell Your Workers Not to Violate Election Law!

Jung

The vote has been compromised.

Ushering votes inside a poll site? Just ask S.J Jung.

This morning at PS 46 in Oakland Gardens, voters were a little shocked to see a person inside the polling station wearing a “Vote for SJ” t-shirt “assisting voters, ” a clear violation of election law.

While we can’t tell if this person was a BOE employee or a Jung campaigner– either way this is clearly a violation, one worse than the other.

And it happened multiple times.

The Jung supporter was clearly walking around the poll site, according to eye witnesses, and “assisting” Korean voters — but more than likely this “assistance” came with encouragement to vote for Jung.

Such blatant acts of electioneering inside poll sites is absolutely abysmal, and poll supervisors are supposed to stop this immediately, but someone wasn’t doing their job.

Clearly, it’s this is an indication of the work Jung would do if elected.

And more than likely when confronted, Jung will seek refuge above the cloud of work his campaign was really doing to get him elected: compromising the vote.

A Non-profit Caught Electioneering

Bragg Blog’s post on the Bayside Hills Civic Association:

Jerry Iannece’s Non-Profit Explicilty Promotes Candidacy, Questions Voting For Jewish Opponent

Take a look at this screen shot from the Bayside Hills Civic Association website, a non-profit.

Not only is the group explicitly promoting the electoral prospects of its president, Assembly candidate Jerry Iannence (which is a definite no-no for a nonprofit), but it also offers the following poll question, asking “How should an American decide on a candidate?”

“Pick the candidate with the most experience and a long record of service to the community” or “Pick the candidate whose ethnicity is the same as yours, even if she or he is not qualified to hold office.”

Iannece is Italian-American, while his opponent, former Assembly staffer Nily Rozic is originally from Israel (before moving to Argentina, then Queens.) Like her predecessor, Assemblyman Rory Lancman, who gave up the seat to run for Congress, she is Jewish.

It’s a heavily Jewish district, and clearly that poll question is quite inappropriate. I’m still awaiting comment from Iannece’s campaign, though it’s kind of late at night, and I just asked. Certainly, it’s not clear who wrote this.

The offensive question has now been taken down, thoughthere’s still plenty on the website explicitly promoting Iannece.
