Gustavo Rivera Sees Dead People–on Rival Fernando Cabrera’s Petitions | New York Observer

The NY Observer reports:

Bronx State Senator Gustavo Rivera is challenging the petitions of his Democratic primary challenger, Councilman Fernando Cabrera, claiming that they are riddled with the signatures of Republicans and individuals who have departed this Earth.

The claim lodged with the Board of Elections today alleges that Mr. Cabrera’s nominating petitions to get on the ballot for the Democratic primary were signed and even carried by members of the GOP–which is not permitted under New York’s partisan election law. Moreover, Mr. Rivera’s camp also charged that a number of Mr. Cabrera’s signatures apparently came from beyond the grave.
