The Democrat primary for the New York City mayoral race is a mess.
Last week is was revealed that over 100,000 ballots were counted that should not even have been included.
Now all the Democrats who are still in the running are filing lawsuits to review the ballots and possibly even object to the final outcome.
Is this still considered a threat to our democracy, or is that only true when Republicans question the outcome?
FOX News reports:
NYC mayoral contenders file lawsuits seeking ballot review
All three candidates who are still in the running in New York City’s Democratic mayoral primary have filed legal actions seeking the right to review the ongoing ranked choice vote tally.
Civil rights attorney Maya Wiley filed a lawsuit Thursday in state court in Brooklyn seeking to preserve her right to challenge the election results and asking for all of the ballots that were “cast or attempted to be cast” to be saved.
“This is a wide open race and as is standard procedure, my campaign filed a petition to preserve the right to challenge the results should we believe it is necessary,” Wiley said in a statement Friday.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and former city sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia filed similar legal actions on Wednesday. That was the day after New York City’s Board of Elections posted vote totals for the June 22 primary that erroneously included test data and then retracted them.
Everything is different when Democrats do it.

Will all of the Democrats questioning the results be accused of threatening democracy?
Aren’t those the new rules?
