We don't know who they are necessarily who funds them who organizes them, but we know they came together to create havoc. And they are not the same as our residents who proudly say black lives matter what we need as a nation we know are systemic reforms. And what thes agitators are doing is distracting from what our nation needs. D. C. Police chief Peter Notion says some of those agitators were tossing fireworks and other projectiles. On Saturday, violence left six officers hurt. Two police vehicles damaged. Police have arrested 69 people since Thursday night, knew this afternoon. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made a speech in Pittsburgh a little while ago and one of his big themes was President Trump's aggressive response to racial injustice protests he may believe Mouthing the words Law and order makes him strong. It is fair you to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is. While Joe Biden attacks the president, Mr Trump appears to be doubling down. He is now denigrating Portland's mayor and considering a federal crackdown on protesters. Twitter the president calls the mayor of Portland a joke and says if he doesn't clean up the violence in his city quote We will go in and do it forthem. He's made similar threats in the past, but so far has not ordered federal troops or National Guardsmen into a state without a governor's request. Despite Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, request that Mr Trump stay away. He will travel to Kenosha tomorrow. A spokesman says The president intends to help the city hell.

Election Officials Declare Winners in Two New York Democratic Primaries After Federal Judge Finds Voters Disenfranchised

"Of Election certified the results of the June 23rd primary earlier today. It comes one day after a federal judge issued an order directing board of elections across the state. To re examine their absentee ballot totals to consider votes tossed out for missing a postmark as long as they were received by June 25th. It's just the latest twist in New York's pandemic primary, which saw a tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots, compared to 2016. Joining us now W. N Y City Hall and politics reporter Bridget Bergen Ridge it let's start with what happened today. The Board of Election certified the results of a primary that took place six weeks ago. That means they finished counting. But why did it take so long? Jamie, You said it right there that we saw that tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots. People really were taking advantage of this expanded absentee ballot system that Governor Cuomo Did through executive order because of the pandemic, and then the counting process associated with it was very methodical. You know. Absentee ballots can be rejected for a lot of reasons. Missing signatures were among the biggest issues, but Another issue. We first reported here at WNYC and Gothamist was related to ballots invalidated for missing postmarks. Two candidates and 14 voters sued the state Board of Elections and Governor Cuomo, arguing that voters were being disenfranchised through no fault of their own due to missing postmarks. Absentee ballots needed to be postmarked by June 23rd and arrive at the board of Elections by June 30th to count and there was a big decision in that case late last night. Give us a quick overview of that lawsuit. Last week, there was a two day evidentiary hearing where witnesses testified about how the Board of elections handled this flood of absentee ballots and how the United States Post office process them. Some of what we learned was pretty shocking. Like the fact that the Board of elections dropped off more than 34,000 ballots to the post office to mail to voters the day before the primary. That meant voters would need to get that ballot in the mail on June 23rd rushed to a post office box before five if they had any chance of mailing it with a postmark. To make it eligible. And beyond that, there was evidence introduced that showed that more ballots in Brooklyn were invalidated for missing postmarks than in any other borough. Wow. Then tell us more about the ruling issued last night. So Judge Annalisa Torahs presided over this case in the southern district. She found the plaintiff's arguments more persuasive that ballots were in fact treated differently in different parts of the city. She ordered the New York State Board of Elections to direct all local boards to count otherwise valid absentee ballots, missing postmarks as long as they were received by June 25th 2 days after the primary. She also criticized the state's argument that it didn't intentionally disenfranchise voters where they basically pointed to failures by the post office and tried to place the blame on them. She wrote quote. The Constitution is not so toothless. When voters have been provided with absentee ballots image assured that their votes on those ballots will be counted. The state cannot ignore a later discovered a systemic problem that arbitrarily renders those ballots invalid. What does it mean Bridget that the city Board of Election certified the election results? Isn't that a violation of the judge's order? Well. The city also directed its staff in each borough to prepare to count the ballots that qualify under the judge's order. And they said, they're just awaiting direction from the state Board of elections to go ahead and do that. Okay, so assuming the order stands, could it change the outcome of any Racists? You know, is one of the plaintiffs lawyers, Remmy Green said at a press conference this morning. We don't know what we don't know yet certainly one of the plaintiffs Raj Patel, who is a candidate in New York's 12th Congressional District, which covers parts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. He's hopeful that this will help because he's currently trailing Carolyn Maloney abi about 3700 votes, but at this point, it's not really clear there are enough votes to change that race. However, there could be other races and other parts of the state that we don't know about. And one of the plaintiff interveners in this case, Maria Coffer who ran for District leader AA position in Queens. She only lost two City council member Karen Causal. It's by about 100 boats, so we'll see if there's anything that changes their 100 votes. Wow. What was the reaction from the State Board of Elections have they signaled any plans to appeal? So I have yet to hear from anyone from the State Board of Elections or the New York Attorney general's office who is representing the state. In this matter. I will note that one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs basically warned the state and governor Cuomo against appealing. Here's attorney, Ali Nagy. Me. Governor Cuomo. Your legacy is on the line. If you will peel this, you'll lose in the appeal, and you will be another second round suppressor votes, and that is not what the governor needs. Now, if the state did appeal, obviously, that matter would go before the Court of Appeals, and it's worth noting. Earlier this summer, this same judge Analisa Torres ruled against the state Board of elections. In another election law case, she overturned their decision to cancel the Democratic presidential primary. That case went before the Court of Appeals and her ruling stands.

"Maybe she wasn't likable enough for some folks she called out is having not shown remorse. In the debate exchange he had with Vice President Biden as if she was not just doing her job. You know, a candidate seeking the presidential nomination by going after the front were certainly not something that we could criticise a man for doing And so you know, I think that these You know these these kinds of things take away from what our focus should really be. And certainly what my focus has been in kind of outlining the veepstakes for folks at the voters don't get to pick who this person is right. This is ultimately a decision that is up to Joe body. And it's a decision that he should be making based on these people's qualifications. And so that is really what we should be talking about. Not about how you know their personality traits. Because that that is not what the criteria is supposed to be for this job. So Bridget Bergen. Your latest article on Gothamist is headlined. Judge will decide whether postmark problems should invalidate thousands of New York primary votes with implications for November. I'll be along headline for a lot of places. Enough, Gothamist. Can you remind everyone what those postmark problems were? Absolutely. And first. I just want to congratulate Aaron, too. I'm so excited for your sight. I've already been on it on DH. I thought is a female politics reporter. I fully endorse everything you said about the coverage in the need so You have a loyal reader right here. Um, So in terms of this postmark case, Brian, this was an issue that I started watching. Right, sort of as we were still in the midst of votes coming in for the June 23rd primary. I was hearing from election lawyers, um, a concern because you know, even as when I was talking to voters on your show about when those absentee ballots needed to be postmarked, that is This crucial thing that would determine whether or not an absentee ballot is valid because of the pandemic. Governor Cuomo had issued the Siri's of the executive orders expanding access to absentee ballots here in New York. Voters took advantage of that, in record numbers. A huge number of voters applied for and received absentee ballots much higher than in previous elections. And those that ballots needed to be postmarked by June 23rd in order for them to be valid. That was also a last minute change that the Legislature made normally absentee ballots needed to be. Postmarked the day before an election and some of the materials for most voters that went out actually said that their ballots needed to be postmarked the day before. And so as we were talking about it and as those ballots were coming in because they could still arrive at the board of Elections up until June, 30th 7 days after the election, I was hearing this concern from both lawyers and candidate. Excuse me campaigns that We're very interested in watching every single one of those votes come in that this was potentially going to be an issue. And you know, just a few years ago in 2018 I had done a story about how Months and months after an election at the Post office found boxes of absentee ballots at a Brooklyn post office that just had somehow gotten lost. So this knowing that there was going to be ah, higher demand. Ah, higher pressure on agency that, as we have all read is suffering from lack of funding is overburdened. And in this case, I'm talking about the post office. But the same is also true for the board of Elections. You know, it's an agency that has to ramp up into high gear around these election cycles. They also were dealing with the Corona virus. There were folks who worked there that were sickened Several who died and they were trying to, you know, run this an election with rules that were Kind of changing throughout the process. So we did a story back in July that looked at some voters who identify this issue that they experience trying to go in mail their absentee ballot. And having postal clerks. Tell them you know, we don't absent. We don't postmark postage paid absentee ballots. Excuse me. We don't We don't postmark postage paid envelopes. And so what has since happened is a lawsuit was filed. It was filed on behalf of two candidates and 13 voters. Emily Gallagher, who ran against Joe Lentil, and Suraj Patel, who ran against Carolyn Maloney. And the claim in this lawsuit is that this kind of this intersection of these executive orders the postage paid envelope and this high, you know, high demand on Overburden agency lead to in the words of their lawyer's an election snafu that resulted in thousands of voters potentially being disenfranchised because their ballots were not postmarked. And there was a two day evidentiary hearing last week. That felt an awful lot like a trial there, witnesses and at this point we're waiting for Judge Analisa Torres to decide whether or not those about some of those ballots or potentially all of those ballots could be brought back into the system and revalidated. And one quick note. Judge Analisa Taurus. Actually, this is the second big election law case she's had this summer earlier this summer. She is the judge who decided to reinstate the presidential primary. Ruling in favor of Andrew Yang and been Senator Bernie Sanders, who had sued the New York State Board of elections for essentially cancelling it right. Governor. Cuomo had cancelled it as a Fed accompli that Joe Biden had already clinched the nomination, which hadn't officially clinched the nomination. But he had pretty much clinch the delegates needed for the nomination and because of the pandemic. Cuomo had said. Okay, we don't need to send people to the polls all over New York state and risk their lives. But, as you say, Andrew Yang and Bernie Sanders went to court because even just getting more delegates has political implications, even if they're No longer you know, neither even if they no longer have the possibility of winning, so this judge is important in New York at the moment to elections as you say. Now, as you also know, President Trump is trying to either stop a lot of mail and voting for the presidential election or sow doubt. On the results of it does the night But before we get to you, Erin on this here is the president speaking the other day. When you're both the reactions to this bridge, it'll be you first because he named checks New York You look at article after Article New York's male vote disaster, Uh tens of thousands of mail ballots have been tossed out in this year's primaries. What will happen in November 2 mess this's done by Washington Post. Can you believe The Washington Post of wallpapers? Fake news, But in this case is not fake. It's true. So, Bridget. Does the president have a point regarding It being a mess. Here we are on August 3rd and the results from the New York primary on June 23rd on.

"It's morning edition on W when my C I'm David first ballot counting in the New York primary election continues today, more than a month after votes were cast. At the same time, A federal judge is set to decide whether postmark problems caused thousands of voters to unfairly Have their votes invalidated. The issue has taken on national importance after tweets from President Trump criticizing the state's election. Joining us now to bring us up to speed on what's happening here in New York is WN Y sees Brigitte Berg and hey, Bridget. Morning. Let's start with a little context. How did this issue with postmarks? Get on your radar? So David as you remember, we have been following all the twists and turns of what we've been calling the pandemic primary since back in March because of the public health risks. Governor Cuomo issued a Siri's of executive orders. He delayed the presidential primary for April to June, along with the rest of the party party contests. He allowed voters to use code 19 or the risk of contracting. It is a valid reason to apply for an absentee ballot, and he then ordered the boards of elections to send all voters absentee ballot applications. He also ordered boards of elections to provide voters with a postage paid envelope to return Those ballots. I heard from several election lawyers that in their experience, the United States Postal Service did not consistently apply postmarks. So that's when I started to dig into the issue. I spoke with the Democratic Co chair of the state Board of Elections, Doug Counter. Who told me he had had conversations with other elections officials across the state about ballots being returned without postmarks. And I also spoke with voters who described their experience of trying to get their ballots manually postmarked at a post office window and being told by the staff that they didn't apply postmarks. Two postage read envelopes. So, of course, I asked the post office and they indicated that all their staff was told to apply those postmarks two ballots and that they were on Lea aware of a single instance across the state when that didn't happen. And it was one of the cases I was actually asking about. So when I did the story back in early July, I was raising the issue because I was hearing it from voters and elections officials. State election law requires ballots to be postmarked on or before Election Day June 23rd and then delivered to the board of elections within seven days. Given the number of competitive races I knew campaigns. We're going to be fighting for every vote. Okay? How did it become a federal lawsuit? Okay, So as we've talked about, there was a massive spike in absentee ballots just in the city. The board mailed out more than 778,000 of them and received back more than 408,000. About 50% of the total vote in this election was by absentee ballot traditionally absentee ballots. Makeup like a single digit percentage of the total. At the same time, there were a lot of candidates and campaigns scrutinizing how these absentee ballots were being counted. Two of those candidates and 13 voters sued the state Board of Elections and Governor Cuomo in federal court. One candidate is Emily Gallagher, who ran for assembly in Brooklyn's 50th district against Joseph Lentil of 46 year incumbent. The other is to Raj Patel, who ran against another long serving incumbent. Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney. Gallagher has claimed victory and Lentil has conceded. Maloney has also claimed victory. But Patel has not conceded their attorneys allege the thousands of ballots were invalidated for no reason other than the postmark was missing, or the postmark was late through no fault of the voter. Now, for the past two days, you have been live tweeting a hearing in this lawsuit. Did it Did it feel more like a trial? What was happening there? So it really did. David. The case was being heard in the Southern District of New York. That Judge Analisa Torres was presiding. This is actually the second big election law case Judge Tours has drawn the summer. She was also the judge that ruled in favor of Andrew Yang and others who sued to reinstate the presidential primary after the state Board of Elections attempted to cancel it. In this case, Judge Tours laid out a Siri's of questions about the absentee ballot system and what role the post office plays, witnesses testified, including people from the state and city Board of Elections, as well as the post office. The attorneys for the plaintiffs were trying to show that a significant number of votes were impacted even if the voters did everything right because the post office didn't reliably apply same day postmarks. State and city argued that essentially you need rules to run an election and voters took the risk of opting to mail their ballots. When they did the way they did. They could have voted in person or drop their ballot off at a BOT officer pull site. There's a lot going on here but but wasn't wasn't one of the issues in this election that Many people received their absentee ballots late. Yes, absolutely. Voters were out in force complaining about this and social media. State Senator Jessica Ramos even tweeted a picture of when her ballot arrived on June 26th 3 days after the election. Now. One thing we learned through testimony from the United States Postal Service is that there was one office the Morgan station in Manhattan that was supposed to process all the absentee bouts. One post office witness, Alan Tanko testified that more than 30,000 ballots arrived at that station to be mailed to voters on Monday, June 22nd that's cutting it pretty close. Another post office witness, Michael Calabresi, said that 60% of those ballots were bound for voters in Brooklyn or Queens. That was the first time I had heard those numbers. Those two witnesses also gave conflicting testimony as to whether a postmark is always applied on the same day males picked up by the post office. Okay. President Trump has been tweeting about the New York primary, seeming to sow doubt about the validity of the election. Was that addressed in this case? So David. The Post office is taking it on the chin in a bipartisan fashion these days you heard from the president. Earlier this week, Governor Cuomo blamed the post office for any problems with the primary. Similarly state Board of Elections Democratic cochair Doug Kellner gave very animated testimony laying out his decades of distrust of the postal system. But His concern is basically the opposite of Trump's, where the president is raising the specter of voter fraud. Kellner is talking about making sure there are no lost votes, and I asked him after the hearing on Wednesday about one of the president's tweets and he told me quote Isn't the president ultimately responsible for the U. S Postal Service. The president needs to address his own responsibilities to conduct a proper election. That's interesting. So when will we know the outcome of this case? So we don't really know. Yet Judge tourists acted pretty quickly in the other case just day after the hearing, so it's possible she could issue a ruling soon, OK and what could happen? So it depends on what backs judge towards considers when she rules. The plaintiffs want to see all those counted, including ones with missing or late postmarks, they say to invalidate them is an undue burden on the voters and could so mistrust. But state and city defendants vigorously oppose reopening the count anyway, and also warned that it could be a detriment to the board of Elections. Ability to prepare for November when again we expect to see a large number of absentee ballots. Wow. Okay, WN City Hall and politics reporter Bridget Berg. And thanks for the update. Thank you, David..
