Eric Adams wants a judge to oversee the vote count and preserve the integrity of the ballots, while the BOE is trying to save face after a gaffe that one political pundit called a “train wreck,” CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported.
Maybe the second time’s the charm. The problem-plagued BOE released a new set of preliminary ranked choice voting numbers on Wednesday evening. They show the same thing as Tuesday — Adams with 51.1%, followed by Kathryn Garcia with 48.9% after nine rounds.
However, it’s still a horse race because in the eighth round Maya Wiley and Garcia were neck and neck — Wiley with 29.5% and Garcia with 29.6%.
