THE JEENYUS CORNER
An attorney for presidential candidate Gary Johnson is accusing the Pennsylvania Republican Party of breaking the law and engaging in “Watergate-style dirty tricks” in an attempt to disqualify the Libertarian from appearing on the ballot in November.
The Daily Caller obtained a letter sent from Johnson’s attorney, Alicia Dearn, asking the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office to investigate allegations of attempted bribery and false impersonation of an FBI agent.
“Based on what I have been told by witnesses, it is my opinion that the Pennsylvania Republican State Committee has engaged in Watergate-style dirty tricks, in an attempt to keep Gov. Johnson off the ballot,” Dearn wrote in the letter dated Oct. 1.
The allegation is that the Republican Party hired a private investigator to prove that signatures submitted by Johnson’s campaign were falsified.
A judge has ruled that Johnson has enough signatures to stay on the ballot, though Republicans are challenging the ruling.
Dearn said this investigator — who either implied or gave the express-impression that he was an FBI agent — offered $2,000 to Johnson’s campaign volunteers to testify that they had falsified signatures. The complaint also accuses the investigator of threatening prosecution for not cooperating.
The state Republican Party is calling the allegation “baseless.”
