Albany Voter Fraud

The Albany Democrats will be voting to pick a new Election Commissioner this week. Why do they need a new one? Because the last one quit because of a voter fraud lawsuit. The first line of the article in the TU pretty much explains why he chose to seek another career:

"A federal lawsuit alleging election fraud in a special Democratic primary last spring has been partially settled with the Albany Housing Authority, but the case against the county Board of Elections will continue."

So who else might have to step down (or be voted out) because of this case?

"Those named in the case include candidate Jestin former Housing Authority employee Jamie Gilkey and Common Council member Michael Brown."

This one isn't over yet.
