Bronx Board of Elections Looking to Boot Assemblyman Off Ballot
You just can't beat the Bronx for political theater and intrigue. Celeste Katz of the Daily Politics Blog posted a story by Bob Kappstatter (covers Bx. politics for Daily News) that says the Bronx Democratic Party is behind the city Board of Elections attempt to invalidate State Assemblyman Nelson Castro's party registration on a residency issue. Castro's opponent is district leader Hector Ramirez, who is backed by County. Of course, it should be noted that the new Executive Director for the Board of Elections is George Gonzalez, who was put there by Carl Heastie, the Bronx County Boss. I think I need to take a shower.
