(New York Post) The top Democrat at the city Board of Elections’ Brooklyn office was suspended without pay Thursday — the second head to roll amid a probe into the mysterious purge of more than 126,000 Democratic voters from the borough rolls.
Brooklyn Deputy Chief Clerk Betty Ann Canizio-Aqiil, 68, was suspended from her $120,000-a-year job, BOE Executive Director Michael Ryan announced.
Last month, the board suspended Brooklyn Chief Clerk Diane Haslett-Rudiano, a Republican, from her $125,000-a-year position over the April 19 presidential primary fiasco.

The board had come under criticism for disciplining the Republican clerk last month and not the Democratic one, even though the vast majority of purged voters were Brooklyn Democrats.
