Two Pennsylvania Statewide Minor Party Candidates Withdraw Rather than Face Challenge Fee Threat

Published on August 16, 2010, by in General.

According to this article, the only Pennsylvania statewide candidates on the Tea Party petition, and on the Green Party petition, have withdrawn rather than face the challenge process.  As readers well know, candidates who are challenged, and who do not withdraw, and are found not to have valid signatures, are then liable for court costs of tens of thousands of dollars.

The three statewide nominees on the Libertarian Party petition are not withdrawing.  There are two federal lawsuits pending that challenge the Pennsylvania practice of charging candidates for court costs when their petitions are checked.

    The good old People’s Republic of Pennsylvania! What a great system.

    So my great Commonwealth disenfranchises another voter…what a shame. I liked Mel Packer, and would have proudly given him my vote. Liberals and Conservatives will both hurt this year, with no alternate choice on the ballot.
