Judge rules against GOP ploy in PA

The Grand Old Party (ahem, I mean the Green Old Party) has failed in its attempt to get a candidate on the ballot to take away votes from Democrat Bob Casey.
A judge has just ruled that Green Senate candidate Carl Romanelli is off the ballot in the Pennsylvania Senate race.

That strikes a deadly blow to Pennsylvania Republicans' gambit to draw votes away from Democrat Bob Casey by fielding a Green candidate. As we reported earlier, all of Romanelli's support was from conservative donors, and Sen. Rick Santorum's (R-PA) volunteers worked hard gathering signatures to get Romanelli on the ballot. The Santorum campaign has admitted steering help toward the Romanelli campaign.
Republicans will do anything to win. Cheat, steal, lie, engage in trickery. They don't care about fair elections. They care only for staying in power.
