    I don't get it Republicans. You claim to be the party of liberty yet you try to block Gary Johnson's legitimate claim to ballot access in Pennsylvania. Seems hypocritical to me.

    Not only do Penn Republicans want to keep as many people away from the voting booth as possible - they want to keep as many people off the ballot as possible!

    Only republicans? Yet in the quote you posted it cleary says "scores of volunteers from both parties". Republicans may have started it, but it looks like democrats were more than happy to jump in.

    shhhhhh... i was sleeping.

    Only the republicans who reviewed signatures wanted to prevent Johnson from being on the ballot. The Democrats were just pretending.

    Although I should add, I don't think it's just the republicans challenge him in those states.

    Republicans also have no shame when it comes to threatening to stick parties with legal fees to get them off the ballot
