Candidate for
U.S. House, New York, District 23
PartyGreen Party
Darin Robbins was an alleged 2014 Green Party candidate seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 23rd Congressional District of New York.[1] Aaron Andrew Keister submitted petitions for both Robbins and another potential Green Party candidate, Amber Cole, to the New York Board of Elections. However, both Cole and Robbins claimed that they had no idea that Keister was gathering petitions for them, as they had not planned to run. The Federal Elections Board subsequently disqualified Cole and Robbins from the primary.[2]

Issues

Unauthorized petitions

Robbins and Amber Cole claimed that they were unaware that Aaron Andrew Keister was submitting petitions in their names. This called Keister's motives into question. Keister recently received money from the New York Republican Federal Campaign Committee and he previously worked for the National Republican Congressional Committee, so there is speculation that Keister may have been working with Republican incumbent Tom Reed, attempting to add a Green candidate to the general election, which would draw away votes from his Democratic opponent, Martha Robertson.[2] Reed denied any knowledge of Keister's actions.[3]

Robbins was allegedly planning to run in the 2014 election for the U.S. House to represent New York's 23rd District. The Board of Elections disqualified his petitions after discovering that Robbins had not authorized Keister to collect petitions on his behalf.[2] However, John Conklin, spokesperson for the New York Board of Elections, stated that Keister's actions were not illegal, and that they had actually disqualified Robbins because the petitions were submitted late.[4]
