I don't think a challenge can be based on the fact that signatures were allegedly obtained at the post office. There may be penalties under the federal law but challenges under GAB 2.07 must be to the sufficiency of the information on the nomination paper and the validity of the signatures. Therefore, I would not see a basis for denying ballot access.

Will the “penalties under the federal law” be looked into?
After speaking with an attorney at the U.S. Attorney office he informed me that he did not think Federal Law would be implicated. That assumption was confirmed by legal counsel for the US Postal Service.
If you have any other questions or concerns about this matter please consult with your attorney.
