PITTSBURGH -- A local state representative charged in a serious hoax said he is being targeted.
State Rep. Jeff Habay is accused of lying when he told authorities he received an envelope containing a suspicious white powder from a constituent.
Habay's attorney believes his client is the victim of a vendetta.
Defense Attorney Jim Ecker said, "This is what really bothers me, is he is a politician. There isn't a month that goes by that I don't pick up a newspaper or watch you guys on TV and I see so and so politician, whether it's a U.S. senator, a local person, indicted or arrested."
Ecker said Habay will plead not guilty when he turns himself in Tuesday.

There wasn't much information about why they think he did it. Do you know something more?
