Desperate Specter strongarms constituents?

Hat tip: Jack Fowler on NRO’s Corner
Over in Pennsylvania, Lehigh County Commissioner Andy Roman is claiming his request for help with a railroad project was met with warmth from Senator Arlen Specter’s staff. That is, until Roman said he’s endorsing Pat Toomey, Specter’s opponent in the Republican primary.

Roman insists that [Specter staff member Adrienne] Baker Green changed her tone the moment his support for Toomey was broached.
He said Baker Green chided, “If that is the case, your transportation issue will be a dead issue; you’ll get no support from us.”

Green denies it. Of course.
