Voter Fraud Contentions in Rockland County, New York – Re-Printed with Permission – Editorial

IS THERE INTEGRITY TO THE VOTING LAWS, THE ELECTORAL PROCESS AND THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS IN ROCKLAND COUNTY?

Note to readers:
We received this from a concerned citizen and it is being re-printed from a post on Facebook. There was additional information posted on the Facebook Post that we chose to leave off of this post due to names and signatures, though we do believe we could have posted it under the http://rocklandgov.com/departments/law/freedom-of-information-law-foil/.

Part 6: How can I, as a citizen, have faith or confidence in our Boards of Elections and electoral process?

Wake up Orangetown? Wake up Rockland!
Potential Voter Fraud in Our Own Backyard…
No matter what your political party affiliation is, you should be VERY concerned.

FOR THE RECORD: WHATEVER I WRITE OR HAVE WRITTEN CONCERNING THIS ISSUE IS BASED UPON INFORMATION FROM A DIRECT AND PRIMARY SOURCE. I DO NOT RELY ON HEARSAY WHEN PRESENTING FACTS.

38 invalid petitions for Conservative Party Committee Members have been subsequently validated by the Rockland County Board of Elections (BOE) resulting in the election of 40 ineligible candidates and another 35 ineligible candidates being placed on the September 13 Primary ballot.

This has occurred even though a thorough investigation was conducted by yours truly providing irrefutable evidence that all 38 petitions were invalid. 
THE THOROUGH INVESTIGATION AND IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE WAS PROVIDED TO THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS. IN THE TIME THAT IT TOOK COMMISSIONER STAVISKY TO “CONSULT WITH”, PREPARE AND WRITE HER NUMEROUS LENGTHY RESPONSES TO ME, SHE AND THE BOE COULD HAVE EASILY REVIEWED THE EVIDENCE AND SUBSEQUENTLY SUBSTANTIATED THE INVALIDATION OF ALL 38 PETITIONS.

1. In her many email responses to me, BOE Commissioner Stavisky has repeatedly stated that the BOE does not perform investigations. This was also stated to me by a BOE attorney. Ms. Stavisky has also indicated that the BOE does not have enough personnel to perform investigations. They both have reiterated that all petitions are considered valid unless objected to by registered voters. Election Law Section 6-154 states this. Yet there are exceptions. The BOE could very well have invalidated petitions for election districts 49, 55 and 85 because they each did not have the required number of signatures. The NYS Board of Elections Law Update (page 15) clearly states that a BOE can invalidate a petition without the necessary number of signatures even without objections. THE BOE SHOULD HAVE INVALIDATED THE ABOVE 3 PETITIONS.

2. All 8 petitions filed for 8 Orangetown election districts are invalid because all petition signers clearly do not reside within the district that the candidate is running for, as prescribed by election law. All petition signers clearly live in Ramapo. THERE WAS NO NEED FOR AN INVESTIGATION HERE; THE BOE COULD HAVE EASILY NOTED THE INVALID ADDRESSES BY VISUAL SCAN IN LESS THAN ONE MINUTE. THE BOE SHOULD HAVE INVALIDATED ALL 8 PETITIONS.

3. 29 petitions for 29 Ramapo election districts are invalid because all petition signers do not reside within the district that the candidate is running for, again as prescribed by election law. THE BOE SHOULD HAVE INVALIDATED ALL 29 PETITIONS.

4. Election districts 7, 100 and 104 have no registered Conservative Party voters therefore all 3 petitions should have been invalidated.

5. THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN. How can effective decisions be made when there exists a dual power-sharing model which has 2 equal election commissioners (one democratic, one republican) in charge? This method was enacted in 1974. Our state legislators need to take a hard look at the Board of Elections hierarchies. No ONE individual is in charge.
I mention this because “I have been told” (hearsay) that the Rockland County republican commissioner, Ms. Giblin, had asked for an investigation of several or all of the 38 petitions. Since mid-July, I have written to both election commissioners and have repeatedly received responses from Ms. Stavisky, the democratic commissioner. The only response I received from Ms. Gibln was a confirmation concerning my inquiry regarding the elected/primary statuses of the 75 ineligible candidates. I am unsure of the BOE protocol regarding responses to the public.

IT SHOUD BE NOTED THAT COMMISSIONER STAVISKY IS ALSO THE CHAIRWOMAN OF THE ROCKLAND COUNTY DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE.

6. Both election commissioners took an oath of office, in part, to defend the Constitution of the State of New York. I fully understand and appreciate the obvious problems that can be inherent with the existing dual power-sharing model that exists within the Rockland County Board of Elections. This absolutely should not excuse the BOE officials from not doing everything professionally possible to prevent ineligible candidates from being considered for election. This is why I believe our Rockland County Board of Elections has failed the citizens of Rockland County.

7. I have either emailed and/or faxed an updated letter to the NYS Board of Elections (attached), Rockland County District Attorney, NYS Attorney General, Senator Carlucci, Assemblywoman Jaffee, Assemblyman Zebrowski, each of the 17 Rockland County Legislators, Congresswoman Lowey, Governor Cuomo and multiple media outlets.

On the Lamm – Voter Fraud and Recent Arrests

<meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”0; URL=/TheMonteScoop/posts/1399863973365996?_fb_noscript=1″ />

 

The Monte Scoop – Interesting, interesting! They didn’t… | Facebook

Interesting, interesting! They didn’t think the FBI would catch them!

This is a summary of previously published information, it is a bit lengthy, but this narrative is worth your time.

Shalom Lamm and his partner Ken Nakdimen who is from Monsey, NY, developers of the controversial high density development project called “The Villages at Chestnut Ridge”, chose the Village of Bloomingburg in Sullivan County, NY not just for it’s bucolic setting – but because they realized the “small town” village government could easily be taken over by newcomers voting in an organized bloc.

The plan was to control the local government and in doing so, create Village zoning and ordinances that would turn Bloomingburg into a new and massive Hasidic community.

In early 2014, in advance of the March Village election, well over 100 “new” Hasidic people registered to vote in Sullivan County, claiming addresses in Bloomingburg connected to properties owned by Lamm.

Informed local residents brought formal challenges to these registrations before the Sullivan County Board of Elections, claiming that these “new” voters were not legal residents for voting purposes at all, but in fact, had been brought in and assigned bogus addresses by the developers to blatantly rig the election in their favor and to take over the Village. (In fact in the December 2016 indictment the accused used deceptive tactics like placing toothpaste and other props in vacant apartments.)

Based on their reading of the challenges and a subsequent investigation which included demands for proof of residency and the Sullivan County Sheriff’s onsite review of the buildings involved, the Sullivan County Board of Elections agreed with the challenges and issued three Notices of Determinations. (Read the Board of Elections’ determinations based on challenges made by residents James Cracolici, John Kahrs, and Anita Hoppe. They make for a very interesting read!)

On March 13, two days after these challenges were submitted, the FBI rolled into Bloomingburg for a massive raid. The Feds raided Shalom Lamm’s buildings (where people claimed to live) – including his offices.

UPDATED: FBI Raids Bloomingburg Properties Owned By Developer Shalom Lamm In Ongoing Public Corruption Investigation
http://failedmessiah.typepad.com/…/fbi-raids-bloomingburg-p…

According to court testimony from a Sullivan County election commissioner — she heard at the polls during the March 2014 Village election, some new Hasidic voters in Bloomingburg state they didn’t know what street they lived on or what county they were in.

Two more elections followed the March 2014 election and they were both clouded by ongoing challenges to registrations claiming voter fraud. (These two elections determined 1. that the Village would not be dissolved into the Town of Mamakating and 2, put pro-Lamm elected officials into office).

Finally, and to the great relief and satisfaction of the citizens of Mamakating, Bloomingburg and Sullivan County, on December 15, 2016, federal agents arrested Shalom Lamm; his business partner, Kenneth Nakdimen, and a young Satmar man named Volvy “Zev” Smilowitz.

Prosecutors with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York indicted the men on charges of conspiring to corrupt the electoral process. (See below for the press release issued by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.)

It also should be noted, that after having reported on the “cultural clash” between the residents of Bloomingburg and the Hasidic newcomers, with little or no interest in the allegations of ongoing corruption and voter fraud, the New York Times pulled out of Bloomingburg and never even reported on the 2014 FBI raid. Never mind that the raid and ongoing saga was reported nationally by many other news outlets. The Times simply refused to cover the story. Now why is that?

It seems Shalom Lamm didn’t think his plan could fail – or maybe as suggested by the three citizen challengers, he wouldn’t have assigned multiple individuals and families to the same addresses and not even bother to assign them apartment or room numbers! Or he wouldn’t have asked people to claim an address in a building he didn’t even own yet! Or he would not have had his own children who were living and working in Israel at the time, register to vote in Bloomingburg.

And as Preet Bharara says: “stay tuned” for possibly more details on the voter fraud from 2014 and more indictments in Bloomingburg, a tiny, tiny village in New York State!

THE PLOT THICKENS
The jump from 396 to 5,000 houses planned for the Bloomingburg Hasidic community: What Lamm’s private emails and documents revealed about his secret development plans despite what he was saying publicly

In secret documents released as part of a lawsuit brought by Shalom Lamm, the developers were exposed in stunning fashion as, among other things, having two sets of plans — one set for the Planning Board to win approval and the other, the real plans, referred to by Nakdimen as the “Yiddishe” plans – for what they intended to actually build.

Additionally, in the emails, those in Mamakating and Bloomingburg opposed to the development, are referred to as the “goyishe enemy.”

See link below for an article and also the attached jpgs of the emails. These are A MUST READ!
