Video: Muslim candidate responds to being removed from ballot after using fake name: “The Board of Elections is so racist and it’s their fault!”
Two muslim Bangladeshi candidates have been removed from the ballot in Queens NY for using fake names.
“Mary” Jobaida, who seeks to unseat state Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan (D-Long Island City), and “Moumita” Ahmed, who is running for Democratic district leader in Assembly District 31, were both removed from the ballot by the Board of Elections after it was revealed that the names they’re running under do not match those under which they’re registered to vote.
“Mary” Jobaida’s real name is Meherunnisa Jobaida and Moumita Ahmed’s real name is Atqiya Ahmed.
