PATERSON — Facing allegations of vote fraud, Councilman-elect Alex Mendez has decided to accept a judge’s proposal that would negate his victory in the May election and set up a new contest for Paterson’s 3rd Ward City Council seat.
After a bitter battle in the spring election, Mendez and former Councilman William McKoy will engage in a rematch that could shape the city’s political landscape for the next two years. Mendez had loomed as Mayor Andre Sayegh’s main opponent in the 2022 mayoral race after he beat McKoy by 240 votes in the spring.
But six days before Mendez was scheduled to take office as a councilman on July 1, the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office announced he was being charged with election fraud crimes, accusations that are pending. A judge subsequently ruled that the 3rd Ward council seat should stay vacant until the resolution of McKoy’s civil lawsuit claiming there was widespread wrongdoing in the election.

In a white paper published last week, Adobe announced its plans to preview a feature that will aim to curtail the spread of fake/altered (or in colloquial language: ‘photoshopped’ ) photos online. The motivation for such a feature took root a year back when Adobe established the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) with the help of The New York Times and Twitter.
Under the initiative, Adobe aims to use a system of tags to trace back a given image to the photographer and the location where the photograph was taken. These tags will have a layer of additional security with the help of cryptographic signatures. Whenever a photo is edited, subsequent tags will be added to create a record containing the complete history and origins of the photograph to verify its integrity. Adobe believes that this metadata when bundled with the photograph will help mitigate the spread of disinformation and fake photographs online.
CAI’s initiative comes at a time when disinformation is on a rise and social media giants have taken a firm stance on combating it. Twitter has been actively taking down President Trump’s tweets. Facebook has come in the cross-hairs for its stance on disinformation as well. It will be interesting to see whether such websites implement a back-end service that establishes the proposed system of metadata.
No need for mail in voting. Sorry, Dems, there goes your argument.
One of the most highly contentious issues of the 2020 presidential cycle is whether it will be safe for Americans to vote in person on November 3, 2020.
For weeks Democrats have held up crucial Wuhan coronavirus relieve packages while demanding billions of dollars for the Post Office in order to bolster mass mail in voting. In California, a state without voter identification laws and outdated registration records, Governor Gavin Newsom plans to mail every registered voter a ballot ahead of election day. Recent elections in New York, New Jersey and West Virginia have proven mass mail in voting schemes lead to fraud and extremely delayed results.
But according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, an original member of President Trump’s Wuhan Coronavirus Taskforce, voting in person can be done safely.
Imagine that this is what MSNBC viewers are treated to each day, the pitched insanity of it all.
OMG the meme is finally real!

Craving bacon at 3 a.m.? Now you don’t have to wait for the store to open in one Upstate New York town.
Saratoga Living reports Oscar’s Smokehouse, a family-owned specialty meat and cheese shop in Warrensburg, N.Y., has launched a new refrigerated vending machine featuring hickory bacon, 3-year-old cheddar cheese, smoked pork chops, sausage, and more. The prices are the same as they are inside the store, giving customers a 24/7, contactless option for meats after stores, including Oscar’s, reduced hours due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Blazing Saddles is currently streaming on HBO Max, along with a new introduction that automatically plays before the Mel Brooks classic begins.
It is unclear exactly when the intro was added to the 1974 comedy classic starring the late Cleavon Little and the late Gene Wilder, but it was sometime after the film premiered on the streaming service in July.
“The intro was added to ensure that the film was put into the proper social context,” an HBO Max spokeswoman told The Hollywood Reporter.
The situation is similar to that of Gone with the Wind, which was pulled from HBO Max not long after the streaming service was introduced due to outcry over its outdated and racist story and themes. The 1939 war classic returned in June with additional context and a disclaimer attached.
TCM host and University of Chicago cinema and media studies professor Jacqueline Stewart provides the intro to Blazing Saddles. She also did the intro for Gone With the Wind.
This is admittedly a few days ago but interesting in context today since the city announced it will not be having a 9/11 tribute this year for the first time since 9/11.

City officials ignored their own application process for public art projects to paint Black Lives Matter murals around the five boroughs, in order to mark an important moment in history, Mayor Bill de Blasio said as his administration faces claims of First Amendment violations for refusing to green-light other proposals.
“We haven’t said ‘no’ to people, we’ve said, ‘If you want to apply, you can apply, but there’s a process,’” de Blasio said during his City Hall press briefing Monday.
The pro-President Trump group Women for America First has sued City Hall for blocking a mural of their slogan “Engaging, Inspiring and Empowering Women to Make a Difference!” on a Manhattan roadway, while allowing multiple BLM paintings throughout the city.
I’m not even going to link to the story and give them clicks for this nonsense.
For the record – an absentee ballot is what you MAIL IN when you cannot vote IN PERSON at the place you LIVE AT.
A “mail in” ballot is a ballot that is sent to you in place of IN PERSON voting.
They are two VERY different things. CNN is hoping you don’t know the difference – and maybe some of you don’t. But this is here to educate. When people you know tell you “Trump voted by mail” you say “That’s an absentee ballot not a mail in one”.
There is no story to link yet from any news source but this was too big not to post.
Here is the decision
