De Blasio Campaign Workers Seen Inside Bronx Polling Site ... Uh, That's a no-no
As NY1, quoting a Edison research exit poll, reports that Bill de Blasio is close to a runoff-proof margin, and not to throw a monkey wrench into the looming de Blasio party, but Voice staffer Anna Merlan just wrote in to tell us that de Blasio campaign workers were seen in full regalia inside a polling location in the Bronx.
The workers were wearing de Blasio campaign t-shirts and were carrying clipboards and campaign flyers. They apparently walked in a side door of the polling site at a public housing development on Nagle Avenue.
That's a potential violation of campaign law. A city board of election spokesperson said the agency would look into the incident. A de Blasio spokesman said it was impossible to check out tonight.
