This PA Green canidate is a lying piece of crap.
The Green Party's Senate candidate in Pennsylvania doesn't mind that his candidacy is completely paid for by Republicans. In fact, he says he was the one who approached them for donations.

In an interview yesterday, the Green candidate Carl Romenelli didn't flinch when I noted his campaign was funded entirely by GOP money. "It's quite possible," he said. "We received a lot of money from Republicans." Romanelli made the ballot, you'll remember, due to a voter signature drive funded by $66,000 from 20 conservative donors. The private company he hired was able to roust up over 90,000 signatures despite there being fewer than 20,000 registered Greens in Pennsylvania.

<snip>
Romanelli, who said he has "friends all over the country" and "called in every last favor" with them, wouldn't tell me who those friends are. When I pressed him to name those he approached for the money, he refused because he didn't want to give "the Casey people... more targets to punish." Santorum's campaign has admitted to encouraging supporters to donate to Romenelli's effort.

Though he understood why people would be wondering, How the hell did this flaming left-winger pull this off? -- he dismissed the importance of the money's source. "Its not like my position on the issues have changed."

1. I think this will backfire on the Republicans.
Because Republicans, generally speaking, would rather eat broken glass than vote for a Democrat. However, those that may be inclined to vote differently this time around have been give another option- Green Party. I think more Republicans may vote Green than Democrats in PA. Just a hunch.
