    Last April, when state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced he was investigating massive Primary Day voting problems, we asked whether he would “dare point fingers at the true culprits.” Well, Schneiderman’s probe is done, the results are in — and, no, he didn’t dare. All the hyper-partisan AG offers is the usual liberal wish list...

    Former NYPD detective Bo Dietl is threatening to sue the city Board of Elections for thwarting his attempt to register as a Democrat in time for a mayoral primary — and blames Mayor de Blasio for the ballot-busting move.

    Something stinks in Harlem — and at the Board of Elections. In what critics claim is an extraordinary political deal, seven of the 10 commissioners on the city’s Board of Elections abstained in a vote to remove a politically-connected candidate, Larry Scott Blackmon, from the ballot — overruling their own lawyers and ignoring legal precedent....

    There is apparently nothing wrong with America that can’t be blamed on Donald Trump. He is single-handedly destroying the Republican Party, trashing presidential debates and spoiling the reputation of locker-room talk. And — breaking news alert! — Trump is even changing journalism. His habit of saying things that nobody ever said before is forcing reporters...

    Now Mayor de Blasio’s joined the chorus calling for the head of Board of Elections Commissioner Alan Schulkin — simply for privately (he thought) speaking his mind about voter fraud.

    Kingsborough Community College violated the law for tax-exempt groups by steering campaign donations to two state lawmakers, records show.
