Quintrnan has spent 10 years Notary: Lawmaker had help in deception UNIONTOWN (AP) — A high school dropout who was allegedly paid $200 by a state lawmaker to enter a slate House race as a spoiler candidate had help from one of the legislator's lop aides, a notary public testified. The office manager for state Rep. Larry Roberts delivered nominating petitions on behalf of the political newcomer, notary public Marsha Heinbaugh told the Fayette County Election Board on Thursday. Michael A. Ciampaneili, 20, has said Roberts, a six-term stale House member, wanted him in the race to siphon votes from challenger Tim Mahoney. Mahoney said he would try to get Roberts off the Democratic ballot if the election board rules before the April 27 primary mat Roberts acted improperly. Ciampanclli's claims also are being investigated by the slate Attorney General. Heinbaugh said Roberts' aide, Toots Perno, brought in a stack of petitions to be notarized. Most were to get Roberts on the ballot, but a few were for Ciampaneili. Heinbaugh said she called Perno to say she couldn't notarize those forms because Ciampaneili wasn't present and asked for some identification for him. Hein- haugh said Perno's husband called her back with Ciampanelli's drivers license number. I Also on Thursday, a woman -who worked in Roberts' Con- ncllsvillc office said she was told to lie about the petilions. Donna Vorrasi said she didn't have any .firsthand knowledge of what happened at Heinbaugh's office 'but was told about it by Perno. Vorrnsi said Roberts told her somebody could go to jail if the real story came out and advised her and Perno to claim they knew nothing about the documents. Mahoney, meanwhile, has been knocked off the Democratic primary ballot by a Roberts challenge to the Commonwealth Court on grounds that Mahoney's ethics paperwork wasn't in order.
