Romanelli setback

A Pennsylvania court has ruled against Green Party Senate candidate Carl Romanelli for a quick resolution as to how many sigs he needs to qualify to be on the ballot. His signature drive was financed virtually entirely by supporters of right wing incumbent Rick Santorum.

The case now goes to the state Supreme Court. “Of the 16,569 signatures reviewed so far, nearly 60% of them have been ruled invalid.” If that percentage holds, or even drops to 33%, Romanelli will not qualify. He got close to 100,000 sigs and needs 67,000 to be on the ballot.

For that high a percentage of sigs to be disqualified is unusual, to say the least.
