Robert "Bobby" Williams

bobby-williams Bobby Williams / Beaver Countian file video still from 2012

Robert “Bobby” Williams has withdrawn his candidacy for Aliquippa City Council, filing paperwork this morning with the Bureau of Elections to have his name removed from the ballot for the May 21st primary election.

The move by Williams follows a series of investigative reports by the Beaver Countian, which raised serious questions about his place of residency, and about the validity of the petition he filed to be placed on the ballot.

Just yesterday, five residents of Aliquippa filed a lawsuit in an attempt to keep Williams off of the primary ballot, citing the Beaver Countian’s reporting.

Bobby Williams has declined to return messages seeking comment since the Beaver Countian began its investigation, having previously told this reporter to “go fuck yourself.” Several residents of Aliquippa have accused Williams of flashing a gun and using racial slurs when he visited their home to collect signatures for his petition.

Editorial Note: For clarification, the Bobby Williams mentioned in this article is not the same man who ran against Jim Christiana for state representative.

Now that the deadline for filing petitions is passed, is George going to put up a write in candidate in his effort to take over Aliquippa???

Does he think that by voluntarily withdrawing his name he won’t be held accountable for submitting documents that were fraudulent? Isn’t filing sworn documents a criminal offense? Who is responsible for filing criminal charges in a case like this?

The sad thing is that if this goof ran in the election, he probably would win. The people of this county would vote for _______________(fill in blank w/biggest historical ass-hat you can think of) as long as he was the endorsed democrat. That nonsense of voters being affraid of the Sheriff or his minions is BS, as well. Once in the voting booth you can vote any way you want and there is no way of the powers that be knowing how you voted. The people of this county vote in corrupt idiots because they are either lazy, ignorant, on the take or any combo of the former. Then they retire to a barstool at the_________(fill in name of social club of your choice) to lament how life done them wrong and try to figure how to obtain a disability claim and still be able to golf when no one is watching. This county gets what it voted for.
