(Harrisburg) -- A lawyer challenging Bob Guzzardi's gubernatorial bid says he should be thrown off the Republican Party primary ballot, but the conservative activist's attorney says he's a victim of "gotcha
Commonwealth Court Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt promised today to rule "quickly" on Guzzardi's nomination petition as she concluded a two-day hearing.
The biggest issue is Guzzardi's failure to file a statement of financial interests with the State Ethics Commission by the March 11 deadline for nomination petitions, even though he filed the same statement with the State Department on time.
Lawrence Tabas, attorney for the Republican Party-backed challengers, says Guzzardi's failure is a "fatal defect" by law.
Guzzardi's lawyer, Gretchen Sterns, says the information was available on the State Department website and that challengers are trying to ``game'' the system.
