Run For Office Ends With Suspension

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has accepted a consent disposition and imposed a two-year suspension of an attorney who violated the state election code.

The attorney pled guilty to 17 counts of filing nominating petitions that "contained forged signatures of electors, and/or forged signatures of fictitious individuals, and/or false statements made by Defendant in signing affidavits of circulator."

The petitions were in connection with the attorney's efforts to obtain a variety of elected offices, both as Republican and Democrat. The positions included District Attorney, District Judge and Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. (Mike Frisch)
