As a follow-up to the bombshell report on the voting pattern of Tom Marino and his wife Edith as they reside in Vero Beach, Florida while casting absentee ballots in the 2022 election; reached out to elected officials at the federal, state and local levels for comment.

Pennsylvania Senator Gene Yaw has yet to respond.

Kaitlin Morrison from the Office of PA State Representative Joe Hamm, Republican representing the 84th Legislative District provided the following this morning; “Rep. Hamm does not wish to provide a statement at this time, but thank you for reaching out.”

Tricia G. Lehman Supervisor, Republican Communications PA House of Representatives provided the following on behalf of PA State Representative Jamie Flick, Republican, serving the 83rd Legislative District in his first term; “Thank you for reaching out. The following is comment from Rep. Jamie Flick.”

Flick: “As the matter is now under review by the district attorney, I trust his office will make the appropriate determination.” 


Representative Hamm is quite familiar with ballots and election law related cases as he was a moving party in a Commonwealth Court case in 2020; as referenced herein.

From the Public Interest Law Center based in Philadelphia; “State representative candidate Joseph Hamm and U.S. Representative Mike Kelly, along with four voters, filed a lawsuit in Commonwealth Court on Election Day, claiming that county election officials who were following guidance from the PA Department of State had violated Pennsylvania election law by notifying voters that their mail-in ballots had been rejected. The petitioners asked the court to invalidate all provisional or replacement ballots cast by Pennsylvania voters whose mail-in ballots were canceled, and all mail-in ballot that were “cured” after voters were notified about a problem with their initial ballot.”

Hamm previously served as the Chairman of the Lycoming County Republican Party.


Will now State Representative Hamm become a moving party in Lycoming County Common Pleas Court challenging the Nomination Petitions of Tom Marino, candidate for Lycoming County District Attorney; based on his Florida residency to ensure the integrity of elections?


Regarding the Marino “issue” of obtaining a Florida Driver License on November 7, 2022 and simultaneously surrendering his Pennsylvania license; Marino then had the new Florida license expire on February 15, 2023.

According to the website;

“New Pennsylvania Residents If you’ve moved to Pennsylvania from outside of the state and want to drive in Pennsylvania, you’ll need a PA driver’s license within 60 days of establishing residency in the state.

To apply for a PA license, you’ll need to go to a Driver License Center, surrender your out-of-state license, pass the vision test, and complete the driver’s license application. You’ll also need to present identification and residency documents.”

All of the steps listed above were completed by Tom Marino in Florida on November 7, 2022 to obtain a Florida Driver License. On the same day, Marino registered to vote in Indian Creek County Florida.

Tom Marino and his wife Edith had absentee ballots counted in the 2022 election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.

September 9, 2022 would be the weekend 60 days prior to November 7, 2022.

September 16, 2022, the Grove Isle at Vero Beach (Florida) Condominium Association voted to approve the application made by Thomas and Edith Marino to purchase the Condominium unit at 870 Lake Orchid Circle, Building C, Unit 204.

On October 3, 2022, subsequent to the Association approval, a Warranty Deed was filed listing a post office address (defined as: where you receive your mail or in legal terms “where you hang your hat”) as Thomas and Edith Marino husband and wife, 870 Lake Orchid Circle, Unit 204, Vero Beach, Florida 32962.


As of this writing, any number of people Marino contacted today from his Vero Beach, Florida have reached out to and shared the concern Marino now has in being able to continue to run for Lycoming County District Attorney with the revelations in the “Bartley article.”

As of this writing, Don Peters, current Chairman of the Lycoming County Republican Party has yet to respond to a request for comment.

As of this writing, Tom Marino, former Lycoming County District Attorney who became a United States Attorney then a United States Congressman for nearly five terms before resigning to take a job in the private sector; remains a candidate for Lycoming County District Attorney.

As of this writing, most if not all of the Lycoming County Republican Party leadership remains silent.

Multiple Lycoming County Republican Party leaders have consistently used election integrity as a campaign plank and in the case of “one of their own”; they remain eerily quiet.
