NY Looking At How To Remove Indicted Official From Primary Ballot

New York Democrats back an Election Law Change to Remove former Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin (D) from the Primary Ballot.

Advocates and Democratic Lawmakers have devised a way, or at least prevent another Problem, like the One they face in Two months, when Benjamin’s name will still appear on the June 28th Primary Ballot despite his Federal Indictment for Corruption Charges and Resignation.

An Election Law Change being proposed by Common Cause/NY and Sponsored by Assemblywoman Amy Paulin (D-88th District, Westchester), would allow a Candidate to Step-Off the Ballot if they are Indicted for a Crime, have Resigned from the Office they are seeking, or are Diagnosed with a life-threatening Illness.
