Republicans question residency of top Democratic senate candidate

A lawsuit filed by two district residents, including the chair of a local Republican committee, alleges that a Democratic candidate for state Senate is ineligible to run or be seated if she wins.

The suit, filed Monday, claims that Lindsey Williams, the Democratic candidate in Allegheny County’s 38th Senatorial District, missed the state’s four-year residency requirement by about two months.

Williams, a former teachers’ union official, is running against Republican Jeremy Shaffer, a local town commissioner who beat incumbent Sen. Randy Vulakovich (R-Allegheny) in the May primary.
