Upper St. Clair attorney McCullough will accept GOP nomination - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Upper St. Clair attorney McCullough will accept GOP nomination - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Charles P. McCullough, the Upper St. Clair attorney at the center of a criminal investigation over management of an elderly widow's trust fund, said today he will accept the Republican Party nomination for its Allegheny County Council at-large seat.

McCullough, 52, won Tuesday what analysts called a surprise victory over political newcomer Kevin Acklin, 30, of Squirrel Hill.

McCullough said last month he was dropping out of the race. But his name appeared on ballots because he missed a deadline to withdraw. Yesterday he won 57 percent of the vote, election results showed. Acklin, who received roughly 43 percent, conceded to McCullough about 10:30 p.m.

'Obviously, it was by the hand of God...
Oh my gosh. Err, ... Oh My God.

Another write-in joke seems to be hatching in the pages of the Trib.

County Council does NOT need to have a D and a R in those seats. A Libertarian can fill that seat.
