Jim Schneller responds to Attorney General's investigation of nominating petitions

Jim Schneller, the Independent candidate in the 7th Congressional District race, today released a statement in response to the Pennsylvania Attorney General's office probe regarding his nominating petitions.

Here are some of Schneller's comments in his news release:

"This is the lowest form of utilization of government office for personal advancement and personal gain. Pennsylvania has seen a sad day in leadership with this announcement. I demand immediate release to the public of the number of signatures claimed to be errant and why, and I demand immediate action, not delayed action.
" This is a statement by the Commonwealth's highest ranking law enforcement office. Right before our eyes, the Attorney General is treating serious ballot questions as a personal agenda. The conflict of interest is blatant. This is why we're asking that an impartial county District Attorney also investigate."
