March 17, 2014 Ten signatures are required for Northampton Republican Committee. The Bucks Board of Elections advises that one petition has ten signatures total.
Only eight of the ten signatures are registered Republican. One is Democrat and another Independent.
Apparently Director of the Board of Elections, Deena Dean said the petition looks OK but she didn’t check the registrations. She checked that the petition had the minimum number of signatures; that the signatures, signed name, address and date blocks were filled out but she did not check the registrations.
The Republicans should do the right thing and withdraw the petition. The errant Supervisor can be “Appointed” and the integrity of the party preserved.
That’s how the Northampton Republicans can do the right thing. The deadline for challenges is tomorrow but there’s no deadline to do the right thing.
