Both the city comptroller and the attorney general are investigating the unprecedented election irregularities.
ew York suspended and may fire the chief clerk of elections in Brooklyn, who was responsible for wiping over 126,000 voters from the records.
Diane Haslett-Rudiano, who has served since 1999, was suspended “without pay, effective immediately, pending an internal investigation into the administration of the voter rolls in the Borough of Brooklyn,” said a Board of Elections press release Thursday night.
The board may fire her as soon as Tuesday, and the New York Daily News reported that colleagues said she is being “forced out.”
