I have instituted proceedings to validate my petitions

I am running as a Republican Party Candidate for United States Congress in the 10th Congressional District of Brooklyn, New York. The 10th Congressional District comprises all or part of the neighborhoods of Williamsburg, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Brownsville, Ocean Hill, East New York, New Lots, East Flatbush, Flatlands, Brooklyn College Campus and Canarsie.

I have instituted proceedings to validate my petitions. In New York Election Law there are two kinds of proceedings. One is a proceeding brought by your opponents to kick you off the ballot when the Board of Elections has put you on the ballot. This is called an "Invalidating Petition".

The other is a proceeding to put you back on the ballot after your opponents have filed an objection and had the Board of Elections kick you off the ballot. This is called a "Validating petition".

I have no idea how this works in other states. If anybody knows, please tell me.

I was listed as a candidate on the New York City Board of Elections website until a few days ago when my name was taken off. This is because the Board of Elections kicked me off the ballot. Now, I have filed validating petitions with the Brooklyn Supreme Court. I expect to take this case up, possibly even to the highest court of New York State and then to the highest court of the United States. Many other candidates were kicked off the ballot but so far none of the others have filed an appeal. My appeal will apparently be the first. Of course, if I win, the other candidates who were kicked off the ballot for similar reasons will probably file appeals as well.

I have posted and will continue to post my court filings to my websites. This is for the convenience of other candidates who may want to copy and use them.

I have filed three petitions for a Writ of Certiorari in the US Supreme Court. All of the petitions I have filed seek to be reinstated on the ballot as a candidate for US Congress for the Tenth Congressional District of New York.
