Meherunnisa Jobaida, the muslim woman who used a fake name when filing to run for office, has been defeated in the primary election for New York State Assembly, District 37.
DeplorableKel When filing paperwork to run for office, Jobaida used her “nickname”, Mary, instead of her real name Meherunnisa. After this was revealed, the Board of Elections removed Jobaida from the ballot, but later, a Queens County Supreme Court Judge ordered Jobaida be put back on the primary ballot.
Jobaida was defeated by Catherine Nolan in the Democratic primary election on June 23 2020.
But wait, there’s more:
DeplorableKel Two muslim Bangladeshi candidates have been removed from the ballot in Queens NY for using fake names.
“Mary” Jobaida, who seeks to unseat state Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan (D-Long Island City), and “Moumita” Ahmed, who is running for Democratic district leader in Assembly District 31, were both removed from the ballot by the Board of Elections after it was revealed that the names they’re running under do not match those under which they’re registered to vote.
“Mary” Jobaida’s real name is Meherunnisa Jobaida and Moumita Ahmed’s real name is Atqiya Ahmed.
The women claim that they were wrongfully removed from the ballot and that not being allowed to use their nicknames is racism and discriminatory. Along with their lawyer, Ali Najmi, the women are fighting to be put back on the ballot in court.
Ahmed also uploaded a video of herself crying and throwing a fit about being removed from the ballot. Ahmed cries, “The Board of Elections is so racist and it’s their fault!” She then calls the BOE irresponsible, even though SHE was the one to file paperwork using a nickname! And wait for it…Yes, she also blamed white people. See her in the video below.
A big Ramadan mubarak to me from @BOENYC. They rejected my name change because I never sent back a letter I never got from them.
NOTE: The letter was not certified mail. I never got it.
