The NYC Board of Elections ruled this morning that two volumes of City Councilman Alan Gerson's petitions are invalid. Since the Board had already kicked him off September's Primary ballot, the ruling doesn't mean very much. Tomorrow, Gerson's attorneys will return to State Supreme Court, where he's suing the Elections Board. See more about that saga here, here, here and here.
In other news related to the litigous District 1 Council race, candidate Pete Gleason failed in his bid to get candidate Arthur Gregory removed from the ballot. The effort to challenge a large number of Gregory's signature's was derailed by the fact that the complaint was not filed in time. There was also some question about whether Gregory is a registered voter in the district. He was able to prove that he is, in fact, registered.
