    Brook-Krasny told the Post he likely won't be the last to jump ship. "I think this is just the beginning," he said. "I think we will see a trend. I’ve tried for a long time, but I don’t think I can change the Democratic Party from the inside out, so it’s time to work from the outside."What else?The Post reported that Republicans have earned noteworthy victories at the ballot box in recent months. One of those victories was wrested by another former Democratic lawmaker, Inna Vernikov. Vernikov — a newly elected Republican council member who trounced Democrat Steven Saperstein by 30 points to win in the 48th District in November — said she also switched parties after realizing how bad the Democratic Party's policies were for the city. "I was a registered Democrat for a brief time because I believed that in order to impact outcomes of elections in NYC, you had to be a Democrat," Vernikov told the Post. "However, seeing what the Democratic Party has done to our country and our city — the policies resulting in out...
    The racist cellmate of disgraced R&B singer R Kelly has created a comic book detailing the pair doing yoga in jail. Brendan Hunt, 37, served time with Kelly at the Metropolitan Detention Center as Hunt faced a 10 year prison sentence for threatening to kill Democratic Congress members following the January 6 riots. In the comic book, Hunt dubbed his cellmate 'R. Celly' and drew the pair discussing music and doing yoga together.

    Share this: The Kings County Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit filed against the Brooklyn Democratic Party that attempted to unjustly unseat thousands of County Committee members and recall five amendments to the Party Rules that allowed for greater democratic participation. The ruling came down late last week. In Judge Edgar J. Walker’s ruling, in response to seven dismissed causes of action by the plaintiffs, the justice said, “the 13 officers elected at the December 23, 2020 organizational meeting would be inequitably affected were the court to invalidate the meeting and direct that a new meeting take place.” Furthermore, “plaintiffs have failed to name necessary parties to this action and timely joinder of these individuals is not possible given the expiration of the statute of limitations.” “Our goal is to ensure that everyone has a voice and that our diverse County Committee members and Party Officers are elected in a fair, expedient and transparent process. We are pleased that the court agrees with us,”  said Party Chair Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn. “A handful of geographically homogenous reformers who did not reflect the...

    More On: eric adams Eric Adams says he’d use federal stimulus funds to hire more cops An erector and elector set of lies: Devine Curtis Sliwa decries ‘continued coronation’ of mayoral rival Eric Adams Man shot dead in Brooklyn — not far from Cuomo, Adams gun violence presser Don’t bother passing the torch — he just grabbed it. Democratic mayoral candidate Eric Adams boldly proclaimed himself the city’s new leader as outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio looked on helplessly at a private political gathering on Wednesday, The Post has learned. “Listen, I am the mayor,” Adams said at the start of a speech during the Brooklyn Democratic Party’s annual dinner. De Blasio stood behind Adams with a smile frozen on his face, a brief video clip obtained by The Post shows. But the lame duck appeared uncomfortable as Adams continued speaking for several minutes at the Giando on the Water restaurant and event space in Williamsburg, a person who was there said. Adams never mentioned — or even looked at — the 6-foot-5 de Blasio, who reached over his...
    Fox News host Tucker Carlson praised Eric Adams for winning the Democratic primary in the New York City mayoral race because he vowed to stamp down on surging violent crime in the Big Apple. 'The Associated Press has called the New York City Democratic mayoral primary which is effectively the same as the mayor's race given it's a one-party state in New York,' Carlson said on his show on Tuesday. 'It looks like Brooklyn borough president Eric Adams is very likely to be the next mayor of New York.' Carlson continued: 'We are absolutely certain we will be deeply disappointed by Eric Adams - at least as he has all kinds of problems and we don't agree with him on anything, but the point of Eric Adams is worth remembering.' 'He won because he was alone in acknowledging that violent crime is a huge problem for everyone in New York and he vowed to do something about it. That is a winning message because it is rooted in the physical reality and we wish him absolutely the best in fighting crime...
    Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams has won the Democratic primary for mayor of New York City after appealing to the political center and promising to strike the right balance between fighting crime and ending racial injustice in policing. A former police captain, Adams would be the city's second Black mayor if elected. He triumphed over a large field in New York's first major race to use ranked choice voting. Adams' closest vanquished rivals included former city sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia, who campaigned as a technocrat and proven problem-solver, and former City Hall legal advisor Maya Wiley, who had progressive support including an endorsement from U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Andrew Yang, the 2020 presidential candidate known for his proposed universal basic income, was an early favorite but faded in the race. Voting in the primary ended June 22. Early returns showed Adams in the lead, but New Yorkers had to wait for tens of thousands of absentee ballots to be counted and for rounds of tabulations done under the new ranked choice system. Under the system, voters ranked up to five...
    After the 2020 General Elections, GOP State Assemblymember Michael Tannousis (64th District Staten Island — Brooklyn) and Congress member Nicole Malliotakis (NY 11th Staten Island — Brooklyn became the last Republican public officials in Kings County. The 64th Assembly Districts’ demographics and enrollment numbers will continue to change eventually favoring a Democrat. The next 2022 reapportionment based upon the 2020 census with just minor tweaking of the district boundaries by gerrymandering could easily make this a safe Democratic seat. There are plenty of registered Democrats in adjacent districts who could easily be added to the seat. The same holds true for Congress member Malliotakis’s seat by adding more liberal downtown Manhattan or other adjacent Brooklyn neighborhoods. The last Republican Brooklyn Borough President who also ran on the Fusion Party line was Lewis H. Pounds who served from 1913-1917. The last GOP District Attorney was George J. Beldock who served on an interim basis from August 10, 1945, to December 27, 1945. He was appointed to this position by fellow Republican Governor Thomas E. Dewey. Based upon the State Board of...
