I am trying to figure out if I submit to several press release sites the same press release, will they publish it and will it be a possible duplicate content issue? Will I be penalize in any way as the content is not on my site but about my site? Thanks.

Change the title when you send to various press release distribution site.
Google News, for example, only shows about 5 links to the same release using the same exact title. If you submit the same exact release to the 6th press release submission site and they still accept your release, this 6th site will not show up anymore.
But if you submit to different sites and change the title for each, there's lesser chance for your release to get filtered out.
I run a limited press release distribution for our audiences which gets into Google News. We manually look up press releases submitted, and don't publish a release that was published by several others. We don't see the point as Google will not show our site anymore for that release.
But if that release has a different title, and some changes here and there in the content, we are likely to publish it in our site as the content will not be filtered out by Google.
