  • Armstrong said he is "not sure what Mr. Alvarez wishes to accomplish."

    "I am determined that we'll do absolutely everything possible to perfect the petition submitted by Ms. Rangel," he said. "We definitely will have a recount."

    of course it's all how VICAD writes the article but doesn't that sound like the recount guru is showing a BIAS towards Ms. Rangel ?

    did armstrong help rangel redo her petition ? if so how is that allowed ?

    this whole deal is really starting to stink

    You are correct .Too much conflict of interest. The Mayor should not be trusted anywhere near this situation.

  • We need a new city attorney...and a new mayor.

    First, the city attorney says there are not any problems with Rangel's petition (except for a typo). Then, when eight (yes...8!) problems are pointed out, Gwosdz punts to the mayor."....the mayor has chosen to agree with Emett that those areas that he's addressing to need to be fixed.

    Funny, funny...the mayor has "chosen" to follow the law?? And then, the city attorney goes on to say "only three of Alvarez' eight objections were relevant.' Well, if they are relevant....then why did you not point them out??? What the heck are we paying you for?

    Alvarez needs to file a lawsuit against the city...the mayor, the city attorney, and anyone else who tries to get away with this attempted travesty of justice. Rangel also needs to file a lawsuit against the same individuals for screwing up her chances for a valid recount.

    I repeat...a new city attorney and a new mayor!
