Cuomo grants parolees the right to vote

Modal Trigger

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to bypass the state legislature and grant pardons to more than 35,000 felons on parole making them eligible to vote.

In a joint statement, 32BJ SEIU President Héctor Figueroa and Communications Workers of America Local 1 Vice President Dennis Trainor said that the tents of the Working Families Party leave them no choice but to break ranks and support Cuomo.

"We got one executive order and it's not even lunch time yet", Sharpton said.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reported Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan said the governor had never raised the issue during recently-wrapped budget negotiations.

Erenumab Shows Promise for Hard-to-Treat Migraine
Thirty percent of participants given erenumab had cut their number of headaches in half, compared to 14 percent given a placebo. This peptide transmits migraine pain signals which Erenumab blocks by occupying the nerves to which CGRP would usually bind.

Cynthia Nixon hit Stephen Colbert's couch on The Late Show on Wednesday night (April 18) and took a swipe at her Governor of NY opponent, incumbent Andrew Cuomo! "Withholding or delaying voting rights diminishes our democracy".

"We want you to show your progress by what you do", he said.

He said granting parolees the right to vote should be the first of many steps in creating "equal justice".

Nixon, who is reported by The Cut as having more than a decade of experience as an activist, is running on issues including education, marijuana legalization and LGBTQ rights, and is hoping to unseat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D).

'Battlefield V' preparing battle royale mode
That's according to VentureBeat , which reports that this year's Battlefield V has been testing a last-man-standing mode. And again, it shouldn't shock you to hear that DICE is doing the same thing for Battlefield V.

Nixon's endorsement from the WFP follows endorsements from the New York Communities for Change, the New York Progressive Action Network, Make the Road Action and the Citizen Action of New York. "With active intervention, we can bend the arc toward justice".

Nixon argued that Cuomo "allowed Republicans to gerrymander their own districts" while in office and has generally acted as a centrist politician in order to "please big-money donors".

The New York Civil Liberties Union praised the executive order, but also said Albany should push forward with legislation on same-day voter registration and early voting. "It's bad public policy, it circumvents the law".

"Cuomo's actions are purely political, created to appeal to radical primary voters and satisfy his presidential ambitions", said State Republican Chairman Ed Cox. Cuomo's decision to exercise his unilateral power to expand ballot access - only after his primary opponent entered the race - suggests Nixon's challenge was a motivating factor in the decision.
