The sale, which earned Haslett-Rudiano more than $6 million, takes on new dimensions in light of 125,000 voters she purged from the rolls
Widespread rage flowed in New York after endless problems and confusions made the most important presidential primary in living memory a living nightmare, and a questionable affair, for thousands of New Yorkers.
Yesterday, Brooklyn's top election official was suspended after the removal of 125,000 voters. As reported by NY1
Board officials say that Diane Haslett-Rudiano, the board’s chief clerk in Brooklyn, is suspended in the wake of a major controversy sparked by the removal of some 126,000 voters from the borough’s rolls.
... an official tells NY1 that Haslett-Rudiano may have "missed a step" when conducting that maintenance.
It is still unclear if the voter purge erased valid registered voters.

As it turns out the story may yet go deeper. In 2014, Haslett-Rudiano turned a multi-million dollar return on a property she purchased in 1976 when she sold a much-maligned and abandoned brownstone on the upper west side of Manhattan.
The suspended official, who purchased the home for $5,000, sold it for $6.6 million -- to a company run by the daughter of Congresswoman and devoted Clinton-supporter. Nita Lowey.
In fact, when Clinton kicked off her New York campaign on April 1, it was Congresswwoman Nita Lowey who introduced Hillary Clinton with adulating words to the crowd at SUNY-Purchase in Westchester.
