How did Cindy get on Indy?

Carl Chipman, Len Bernardo, Cindy Fornino

A glance at the 2014 local ballot begs the question: How on earth did Cindy get on the Independence Party line? I know, I know, she and Len Bernardo are best friends forever and Gerry Fornino already gave to Len’s wife the Conservative line a number of times… but let’s take a look at the timeline:

    July 10, 2014
    Last day for filing designating petitions for state/local offices.
    NYS Election Law §6-158(1)

    August 7, 2014
    At the Town Board meeting, Rochester town supervisor Carl Chipman read Councilman Tavi Cilenti’s letter of resignation effective August 15.
    Shawangunk Journal – August 14, 2014, page 7

The Independence Party is required by law to do every nomination (town and county-wide) solely by petition. On July 10 – the deadline for filing petitions – not even Councilman Cilenti knew about his resignation, so Cindy Fornino had no legitimate reason to circulate and file a designating petition.

Cindy Fornino knows how she got the nominations:

Carl Chipman, Len Bernardo, Terry Bernardo, Cindy Fornino, Gerry Fornino

Her nominations are morally wrong. Do they have to be illegal too?
