From True News from ChangeNYC.org:
Just like the mob rigged drugs, gambling and prostitution our elected officials have rigged the election law to protect incumbents from challengers. A good example of an election law hit was the candidate who was knocked off the ballot in a special elections this week because a judge said the name of his party broke the election law (in a special you cannot use established parties). Glenn DiResto was removed from the ballot because the name who choose Families First according to the judge sounded to much like the established Working Families Party. Because of thug tactics like the election law our local elections have become so noncompetitive, that, behind public view, most incumbents, regardless of party or reform beliefs, work together like the organized crime commission organized in 1957 in Appalachian, New York, to keep the outs “out.” Sometimes elections are so fix that candidate receive the both Republican and Democrat endorsements.
