Hasidic Voters Sue Sullivan County Board of Elections

Liz Benjamin reports  a group of Hasidic voters in the small Catskills village of Bloomingburg is suing the Sullivan County Board of Elections, alleging it is “engaging in an unyielding discriminatory campaign” to deprive them of their right to vote because of their religion.

There has been an ongoing dispute between the Hasidic community in Bloomingburg, which has grown considerably in recent years, and local officials. The heart of the standoff is a Hasidic housing project proposed by a controversial developer named Shalom Lamm.
