Judge Sides with Heastie and 'Rainbow Rebel Dems

Call him Chairman Heastie.
The judge hearing the case involving the leadership struggle over the Bronx Democratic Party has sided with the s0-called "Rainbow Rebels" and validated the election of Assemblyman Carl Heastie as chairman of the Bronx Democratic County Committee. He replaces Assemblyman Jose Rivera. More here on Liz Benjamin's blog.
And more from us a little later once we get our hands on the judge's decision.


  1. Here's the Judge's official decision:


    Haile Rivera

  2. Looks like Bronx Councilman G. Oliver Koppell bet on the wrong horse in this race. It will be fun to see how his now victorious rivals pay him back if he dares to run for reelection next year.

  3. Congratulations Assemblyman Heastie our new Bronx Democratic Party Chairman. I look forward to seeing a better Bronx through your leadership as well as unity amongst the Democratic leaders in the Bronx. Good Luck.
