Republican hopeful, Giulio Tata, decided to not submit his nominating petitions for Westchester County Board of Legislators (BOL) after it was discovered he was registered, and potentially voted, in both New York and Florida in the 2022 election….
The uphill climb to collect enough petition signatures to qualify for the ballot began on February 28th. For this seat, 304 signatures of verified Republicans living in the 14th district are required. Having gathered that many and then some, Westchester County GOP chair Doug Colety was contacted by his Democratic counterpart Suzanne Berger just one week before the submission deadline. Berger informed Colety that their candidate, Giulio Tata, potentially had voted illegally in 2022….
Speaking with Suzanne Berger about why she brought this issue to her political rival, she plainly said that she’d want him to do the same if he were in her shoes. And in regards to Tata’s exit from the race under these circumstances, Berger said that she’s “glad any irregularities were found out before the election,” with an explicit reference to beleaguered Republican US Congress Member George Santos.
