Bryan Lentz Finally Admits to Helping Jim Schneller Get on the Ballot

DREXEL HILL, PA – During a meeting today with the editorial board of the Delaware County Daily Times, Bryan Lentz finally admitted to helping third party candidate Jim Schneller get on the ballot in an effort to siphon votes away from Pat Meehan.  The admission comes months after press reports documented a coordinated strategy by Lentz supporters to circulate petitions for Jim Schneller.
 
During the editorial board, Lentz stated, “If somebody has already made the decision to run, I don’t think that ‘helping’ with the process of signature petitions was improper.”  He went on to say that, “I didn’t think [Schneller on the ballot] was a bad thing…for the process or my candidacy.”

“It’s about time Bryan Lentz would admit what the media has been reporting on for months.  Despite his efforts to fool voters about his role in supporting Schneller’s candidacy, he was forced to come clean, and he should apologize for not being forthright,” said Bryan Kendro, campaign manager for Pat Meehan for Congress.  “Bryan Lentz felt he was not a strong enough candidate to run on his own record that he had to ensure a shill candidate was on the ballot, too.  Once again, voters cannot trust a word Bryan Lentz says.”
