The board says in a statement Thursday that Brooklyn Chief Clerk Diane Hasslet-Rudiano has been suspended without pay.

They say she has been suspended pending an internal probe into “the administration of the voter rolls” in Brooklyn.

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said his office has launched an investigation on Wednesday after a state voter hotline received more than 700 complaints. New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer said he would audit the board.

The board said it would cooperate with both inquiries.
