    Remember when Randy Mastro and some Staten Island voters sued because they said Data and Field Services had willfully undercharged Working Families Party candidate Debi Rose, and thereby injured the voters' rights?

    Election Day 2009: 6 Losers to Watch!

    It's Election Day and, this being New York, no surprises are expected. As Runnin' Scared has no influence to peddle, we can afford to be brutally honest about this.

    Election 2009: Down-Ticket, What Has Become of Our Beautiful Losers?

    In city races the favorites are getting treated as such, with very few deviations. Some of the city council races are downright ridiculous.

    Cheek, in Review: 7 Days of Runnin' Scared

    Twitpic by StWiltshire. The last full week of the election campaign was sorta fun -- as it should have been with Mayor Bloomberg spending $37,000 an hour on it. And it worked: the big papers endorsed him, as did another Democrat, and polls showed him way out of Bill Thompson's reach. We still su ... More >>
