“New York State voters reject constitutional convention, approve proposal to seize pensions of corrupt politicians”


 Voters on Tuesday rejected the idea of holding a convention to overhaul New York’s constitution but approved an amendment allowing corrupt politicians to be stripped of their pensions.

With opposition driven by some of the state’s most powerful labor unions and interest groups, the proposal to hold a constitutional convention — known as Proposition One — was crushed by more than 50 percentage points, according to early returns.
