NY-03 Joint Press conference on Electoral Obstruction My opening comments from the NY-03 congressional candidates' joint press conference on Jack Martins' ongoing attempts to steal a primary election and disenfranchise voters. Military ballots have already been mailed for the Oct. 6 special GOP primary, but next week Martins will be back in court to ask that the primary be canceled, and/or that the general election be moved to a date he finds more favorable to his candidacy. It's time to give the lawyers a rest and finally let the voters decide.

Military ballots go out for 3rd District primary Jack Martins' attempt to shield himself behind military servicemembers in his ongoing molestation of the electoral process was further revealed as a hollow, cynical ploy as the Board of Elections explained how it would handle overseas absentee ballots following the October 6 special GOP primary.

"In their waiver request, state election officials said they would certify the Oct. 6 primary as early as the next day if the results are not close, use express mail to send out ballots and extend the deadline for military voters and civilians who live overseas to send back their ballots until Nov. 29."

That's a two-week extension, not counting the potentially expedited primary certification (if I beat Martins badly enough) and the multi-day savings from using express mail.

More than enough to make up for there being only 33 (instead of 45) days between the primary and the general.

Tomorrow, the BOE will submit briefs in the federal case, where Martins is still attempting to cancel the primary if he can't get his custom election day wish granted.

Think any of this will put a stop to his demonstrably false cries of disenfranchisement (made all the more hideous, against the backdrop of his ongoing and desperate attempts to actually disenfranchise the entire district)?

MARTINS HAS AN ETHICAL OBLIGATION TO DEBATE | Pidot For Congress MARTINS HAS AN ETHICAL OBLIGATION TO DEBATE

NY-3–Aug. 23… Zero Republican Primary debates have occurred in New York’s 3rd Congressional District this year, and conservative Republican reform candidate Philip “Flip” Pidot believes that his opponent’s refusal to debate is downright “unethical.”

Multiple debates were held before the June 28 NY3 Democratic Primary, Mr. Pidot noted.

The NY3 Republican Primary features two candidates — Mr. Pidot and State Senator Jack Martins — with sharply different governing philosophies. Mr. Pidot, for example, favors term limits in Albany and Washington and an end to defined benefit pension plans for members of Congress as a way to discourage political careerism. Mr. Martins broke his word to the New York State Reform Party this year over term limits. He pledged to press for a floor vote on term limits in Albany as a condition for Reform Party consideration, and did nothing once he got the line.

Mr. Pidot has signed a no-tax-hike pledge and a pledge to vote for full Obamacare repeal. Mr. Martins has done neither. Mr. Pidot opposed New York’s 70% minimum wage increase as far too costly for small businesses. Mr. Martins said the hike would devastate Long Island businesses — then voted for it as part of a naked backroom political deal with Governor Andrew Cuomo.

“Jack Martins has an ethical obligation to defend his record and policy positions before the NY3 Republican Primary voters he’s tried so hard to disenfranchise this year,” Mr. Pidot said. “Mr. Martins has rejected every single invitation to debate over the past four months, and I find that extraordinary. If you think you’ve done a good job in public office, why wouldn’t you be willing to tell people why in an open and honest forum?”

Mr. Martins and his legal team spent four months unsuccessfully trying to prevent a Republican primary in the 3rd District, which includes parts of Suffolk, Nassau, and Queens counties. A federal judge rejected Mr. Martins’ machinations and ordered a Thursday, October 6 primary.

Mr. Pidot has proposed five debates with Mr. Martins before that date. Mr. Martins has not responded.

Editorial: Don’t delay vote in 3rd CD until December Newsday Editorial Board slams Jack Martins:

State Sen. Jack Martins’ attempts to knock fellow Republican Philip Pidot off the primary ballot in the race for the 3rd Congressional District caused months of delays and expense for Pidot, and Martins’ reasons turned out to be unfounded. In the end, a court ruled that Pidot had the 1,250 valid signatures (plus 11 more) needed to make the run.

But Martins and his lawyers dragged the process out so long that Pidot was not cleared to run until just a few days before the original primary date for federal elections, June 28 — too late to print ballots carrying the names of both men.
...
The courts and Martins’ lawyers delayed Pidot’s attempts to force a GOP primary, and Martins’ challenges turned out to be wrong. In sports, you are penalized if you challenge a referee’s call and turn out to be wrong. Martins doesn’t deserve the delay, and the boards of election don’t need it. Having slowed the system, Martins shouldn’t be permitted to benefit from the breakdown, and voters should be able to cast votes for all of their officials on the same election day.
