Latest on Heastie v. Rivera

Liz Benjamin has the latest on the Bronx Democratic leadership struggle with Jose Rivera & Co. filign a suit and Heastie & Co. filing a countersuit.

There was a meeting of commissioners at the Board of Elections today, but this issue was not discussed, according to J.C. Polanco one of the Bronx commissioners who just e-mailed me. Polanco says the jurisdiction is probably with the state Board of Elections. I seem to have missed the ball on this (yes, I know you'll find this hard to believe but reporters are fallible) since I just noticed that Liz also reported that Heastie's lawyer, Stanley Schlein, filed certification papers with the STATE Board of Elections.

Liz also reports that Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries of Brooklyn is introducing legislation to require a voter referendum to change term limits laws anywhere in the state. This is getting interesting.
