Rally For The Ballot!
News broke this week that Brooklyn Democratic Party leaders are trying to prevent Rep Your Block candidates from serving on County Committee through a coordinated filing of objections across the borough, with the backing of a powerful law firm with deep ties to the party. An investigation shows that some of these objections contain obvious and criminal fraud. See this reporting from The City.
The Brooklyn Democratic Party's law chair is named on all of the fraudulent objections. All objections filed by the lawyer Anthony Genovesi Jr. should be thrown out due to risk of fraud, and these County Committee candidates should be allowed to serve. #DropTheObjections!
Join Rep Your Block and supporters for a rally to tell Brooklyn Democratic Party leaders that we won’t stand for being blocked from participating in County Committee, and that their fraudulent objections are unacceptable! We want them to #DropTheObjections!
