You laughed when Terry Bernardo said she wants to be a Legislator.
You laughed when she promised to be the Chairwoman of Ulster County Legislature.
Now she wants to be a Commissioner of Elections… Go ahead, laugh now, cry later…
Apparently, Len Bernardo – the Chair of the fraudulent Ulster County Independence Party – is asking the Ulster County Legislators to give Tom Turco’s job to his wife. It’s true, when it comes to Election Law, Terry Bernardo is in a league of her own. She was fined by the New York State Board of Elections for not filing the mandatory financial disclosures, she filed a petition containing the signature of a deceased person, and she casually broke the Election Law:
The Ulster County Board of Elections denied 52 of Bernardo’s 364 petitions, several of which were signed at a “Free Lunch” offered by the candidate on June 12, where petitions were made available.
According to NYS election law, “Any person who pays, lends, contributes or promises to pay, lend, or contribute any money or other valuable consideration” to any voter to sign a petition for the designation of a candidate for party nomination or for election for public office “is guilty of a misdemeanor.”

See below my preferred example of Terry Bernardo being sloppy with the electoral process. She actually filed this petition on which only the signature marked with the red dot was legitimate:
Don’t be surprised if Terry Bernardo is unofficially nominated for Commissioner of Elections at tomorrow’s Republican Convention, and don’t be surprised if the sheep in the Ulster County Legislature make that official. The Independence Party line on the ballot comes with a price…
If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.
