And the judge lets her off, after she claims she was too trusting of her campaign workers who worked so hard to get those fraudulent signatures on the ballot so she could run for election. But three of her campaign workers take the fall for her. They have been arrested.
Dem NYC councilwomans trusted campaign staff indicted on counts of fraud, forgery Some things never change, and corruption in the Big Apple appears to be one of them.Corruption like this is a sign that New York is well on its way to ending up like Detroit, or at the very least, some kind of third world, wasteland. It can happen. It does happen, and I predict, it will happen.
Three campaign workers for Democrat New York City Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo were arrested Tuesday and charged with falsifying business records, forgery and offering a false instrument for filing, the New York Daily News reported.
The three workers were paid a dollar for each signature they collected last summer on Arroyos re-election petitions. When staffers for Arroyos opponent, Julio Pabon, noticed signatures from celebrities like Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter and model Kate Moss, authorities launched an investigation
Insisting that she and her mother, New York City Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo, were the first to spot the forgeries, Arroyo told Board of Elections officials at a July hearing that she felt all she could be guilty of was trusting people too much, the Daily News reported.
Even though an investigation found a whopping 81 percent of the signatures were invalid, New York Supreme Court Justice John Carter ruled that Arroyos name could remain on the ballot, despite what the judge called her wholesale failure to supervise the petition-gathering process, according to the Daily News.
Arroyo went on to win the primary and general elections.
Now we know why Democrats win.
Judge John Carter, partner in crime.
She looks like a destructive thug.
Oh hi NSA.
no standards. standards might upset the apple cart.
Detroit on the other hand had the most honest mayoral election they’ve had in decades because the Michigan secretary of state what standing on their necks through the whole process.
I assume she gets to keep her council seat.
That is one rough looking, uh, whatever the heck that is.
I wonder what is wrong with the New York Republicans? Elections fraud is out there with flashing lights. Instead, the Republicans roll over and let the machine roll over them.
What is not said is the number of signatures from the honest signature gatherers, and whether that was still enough to get on the ballot.
Don’t these signature sheets get certified by city clerks? I’d think they have to validate each and every sig.
Somebody better tell Thad McCotter he can have his seat back, no prob.
81 percent fraudulent voters? Incredible.

The argument could be made she can’t be trusted to manage her own affairs. She looks like a bull dyke hence the reaon she was probably hired in the first place.
This is what the Democrat party is.
Let us be forgiving and generous and say 40.5%.
