Democrats and Republicans alike agree that there’s been a serious spike in violent crime over the last couple of years — the highest in more than a decade. Biden deserves kudos for standing up to his party’s loud progressive wing and insisting on taking action before more Americans needlessly die. The White House’s fact sheet on Biden’s crime-fighting plan talks of “gun violence resulting from the pandemic,” “gun violence exacerbated by the pandemic” and “gun violence associated with the pandemic.” In fact, the homicide spike “actually began in 2019, prior to the pandemic,” noted the National Commission on Covid-19 and Criminal Justice, a bipartisan panel assessing the pandemic’s effect on the justice system. More Americans believe violent crime is a “very big problem” than think the same about the coronavirus, a recent Yahoo News/YouGov poll found. In fact, violent crime was respondents’ top concern, beating the economy and race relations.

The city’s Board of Elections said Mr. Adams, who currently serves as the Brooklyn borough president, had 31.13% of 758,385 votes with 96% of precincts reporting. The mayoral primary was the first big test of the city’s new ranked-choice voting system, which allows voters to list up to five candidates in a race in preferential order. Since Mr. Adams didn’t receive a majority of first-place votes, the ranked-choice process will kick in. Under the system, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated. The ousted candidate’s votes get redistributed to the voters’ second choices.

NYC Voted. It Was About Crime

On Tuesday, New York City’s voters went to the polls in the Democratic mayoral primary. In post-pandemic Gotham this vote was about just one thing: crime. Because New York adopted the arcane system known as ranked-choice voting—another progressive innovation—the final winner may not be known for weeks. For some 20 years, the New York City Police Department’s fix was hundreds of plainclothes cops trained to identify and arrest guys with guns before they started shooting. Waking up at last, President Biden gave a policy speech on crime Wednesday, essentially ordering various federal bureaucracies to do something about guns.

The winner of New York City’s Democratic mayoral primary hinges on a new ranked-choice voting system and will come down to voters’ second and third picks in the race, candidates and political consultants say. The mayoral primary was the first big test of the city’s ranked-choice voting system, which allowed voters to list up to five of the 13 candidates on the ballot in preferential order. The ranked-choice process is in play because Mr. Adams didn’t win a majority of first-choice votes. Under the system, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated. The ousted candidate’s votes get redistributed to the voters’ second choices.

Andrew Yang, the former 2020 presidential contender and businessman, dropped out of the race for New York City mayor Tuesday night, as votes among the other Democratic contenders continued to be counted. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams had the lead late Tuesday, according to preliminary results. It was the first time the city has used ranked-choice voting, which allowed voters to select and rank as many as five candidates. Democrats had a crowded field, but whoever wins the primary is likely to win the general election in November as Democrats outnumber Republicans in the city. Yang was the early front-runner but has slipped in the polls and been replaced by Adams, a former New York Police Department captain.

"I am not going to be the mayor of New York City based upon the numbers that have come in tonight. As of early Wednesday morning, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams appeared to take a fragile lead with Garcia and Maya Wiley not far behind.

A campaign that began behind the pandemic-imposed safety measure of Zoom screens ended on Tuesday in a five-borough, bare-knuckled brawl as Eric Adams, a former police captain, took a sizable lead over a splintered field of Democrats in the primary race to become New York City’s next mayor. Maya Wiley, a former civil rights attorney and past adviser to Mayor Bill de Blasio, was narrowly in second, followed closely by Kathryn Garcia, a former city sanitation commissioner. Neither had conceded in a spirited race whose outcome will shape how the city emerges from the pandemic. With Democrats far outnumbering Republicans, the Democratic primary winner would be the heavy favorite in November. With nearly 90 percent of the votes counted, Mr. Adams led in four of the city’s five boroughs — everywhere but Manhattan — though the final results, including the first-ever use of ranked-choice voting for the city, are expected to take weeks.

WASHINGTON — The Trump Organization is suing New York City over its decision earlier this year to cancel the company's contract to operate an 18-hole golf course in the Bronx borough with views of the Manhattan skyline. The lawsuit said that after the riot, de Blasio “denounced President Trump in the most inflammatory terms” and “characterized the Trump Organization as 'an organization led by a criminal.'" The Democratic mayor said that the city had a right to sever a contract with any company that is engaged in criminal activity. "Inciting an insurrection against the United States government clearly constitutes criminal activity," he said at the time on MSNBC. The filing defended the company's right to keep running the golf course by listing “accolades and top rankings from major publications,” including statements from several professional golfers, such as Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson.

But the race is tight and the ranked-choice process makes it especially unpredictable. Here's five things to watch for in the New York City mayoral race on primary day:Ranked-choice votingThis will be the city's first time using ranked-choice voting, which has added a new layer of volatility to the race and opportunities for backroom deal-making. Voters overwhelmingly approved a 2019 ballot measure to implement ranked-choice voting, which allows them to list their preferences in order for up to five candidates. About 192,000 people already cast their ballot during the early voting window that ended Sunday, according to the New York Board of Elections, and turnout tends to be low in New York City primaries. Turnout in the last contested Democratic mayoral primary in 2013 was just 20 percent.

Democratic candidate for New York City Mayor Maya Wiley campaigns with U.S. Representative Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) at the Co-op City housing complex in the Bronx borough of New York City, New York, U.S., June 7, 2021. Democratic registered voters outnumber Republican voters by more than a six-to-one ratio, state data shows. Voters also will choose from eight Democratic candidates seeking to replace Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., who is retiring. Final results are expected the week of July 12, after the deadline for voters to fix, or "cure," deficient ballots has passed. Yang encouraged his supporters to rank Garcia as their second choice; Garcia stopped short of doing so but offered praise for Yang's campaign.

Officials are warning about the spread of the Delta variant, which is currently dominant in the UK. Scott Gottlieb said such contagious variants mean "kids are becoming more likely to be vectors." "The old assumptions about children and children [not] driving community spread were based on the original strain of this virus," he said. Gottlieb said he expects more of an emphasis on children and teenagers vaccinated in light of the Delta variant spreading. The US has authorized the Pfizer vaccine for children aged 12 and higher, and thousands of kids have been vaccinated since.

The New York City mayoral primary is absurd, because the NYC mayoralty is absurd. The position consumes the individual who holds it, rendering them useless for higher office. Today marks the in-all-but-name end of a brutal campaign for New York mayor that has at times bordered on the ridiculous. The New York City mayor is not that kind of office. While NYC has term limits, for the past several decades, mayors tend to leave office more in the UK style: detested by the voters.

Before being sentenced, Huberfeld told Liman he had apologized to union members, repaid the union $5.5 million and planned to repay $1.5 million more. Another judge had sentenced Huberfeld to 2-1/2 years in prison in February 2019, but a federal appeals court set aside that punishment last August. Rechnitz was sentenced in December 2019 to five months each of prison and home confinement after pleading guilty to a fraud conspiracy charge.
