Pendleton, Brown Withdraw Challenge To Pannell

It was anti-climatic but filled with drama.

Shadow Sen. Michael D. Brown and former shadow Sen. Florence Pendleton withdrew their challenges today to the nominating petitions of Philip Pannell in his effort to become an official candidate for shadow senator.

Pannell is trying to unseat Paul Strauss, a 12-year incumbent. Though Strauss did not challenge Pannell himself, Richard Bianco, his campaign treasurer and associate in his law firm, represented Pendleton and Brown before the Board of Elections and Ethics.

Bianco told the board that Strauss had urged Brown and Pendleton to drop their challenges.

Pannell, still visibly upset that the challenges made it all the way to a hearing today, said Bianco can now concentrate on other matters.

"I guess he can now spend his time counting Sen. Strauss's [fund-raising] checks," he said.

If elected, will Pannell stay on his anti pyschotic medication?

Mr. Rees:

I have never been on anti-psychotic medication but once took medication for bipolar disorder. I have not been on medication for 9 years. However, if I ever need anti-pyschotic medication, would you recommend what you have been taking?

Sincerely,
Philip Pannell
