Up until now, Northampton County Exec Lamont McClure has been a good boy in his re-election bid. He has sent out a few mailers highlighting his accomplishments during his first term in office. But now he's telling you about the pathetic excuse the Republicans have put up to challenge him. It's Steve "20 strong men" Lynch, who participated in the January 6 attempted coup at the US Capitol. He wore a bulletproof vest to this insurrection, and was visited by a curious FBI after he returned home. McClure just thought you should know.
I imagine you'll soon be informed that Lynch also wanted to storm the Northampton Area School Board with "20 strong men" over, of all things, a face mask.
He also wants to prosecute Governor Tom Wolf for murder, although I was unaware that a county exec had law enforcement powers.
Lynch was really upset at McClure's accurate portrayal. He hopped on Facebook Live on Tuesday, blowin' oil, in a bizarre attempt to counter the "McCounty Coward," as he calls McClure.
Lynch claims that McClure lied when he stated that Lynch was visited by the FBI over his role in the January 6 insurrection
"If I'm an insurrectionist and I was interviewed by the FBI, why am I not in jail?" he asks. "Wanna' explain that one to me?"
The answer is simple. You did participate in the insurrection, but there is just no evidence that you trespassed or were one of the guys smearing shit in the halls of Congress. ... Yet.
Lynch goes on to claim that McClure slandered him when he stated that Lynch was visited by the FBI.
Let me give you a lesson in defamation law. First, it's called libel, not slander. Second, truth is an absolute defense. The proof that you were visited by the FBI comes from your own daily Facebook Live videos, in which you repeatedly hang yourself. You have stated, at least twice, that you were visited by the FBI over your role in the January 6 insurrection. You can see an example above.
There most definitely is a liar, Steve, but it's you.
Steve, everything you say can and will be used against you. And you've said a lot of goofy and dangerous things.
