Vod Varka, a small business owner from Allegheny County, shocked the political establishment by appearing to get the signatures last March.
He describes himself as a
conservative Democrat. He is against ObamaCare and has been an NRA
member for 36 years.
The action came after a challenge by Congressman Joe Sestak (D-Pa7) and the ruling leaves the race between him and party-endorsed incumbent Arlen Specter.
Specter responded with this statement: The people, specifically Democratic Primary voters, should have decided
whether Mr. Vodvarka was worthy of support, not Joe Sestak and the court
system. And Cong. Sestak was happy to pay big bucks to his lawyers to knock a
regular guy like Joe Vodvarka off the ballot, but he’s not willing to
pay the minimum wage to his own campaign employees.
