I feel like I need a shower after linking to PFT. But hopefully this is true.
It makes sense: La Confora reported it was Reese and an unnamed other. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Kahn was a finalist, but then based their assumption Reese was the other off of La Confora's report. Lately John Clayton has reported that Schnieder is still in the mix.
So hopefully, it's Kahn & Schnieder as the finalists, and Reese was simply trying to do some self-promotion and create a market for himself.
