Last week, in a recap of the Pa.-7 Congressional debate between incumbent Susan Wild and challgener Lisa Scheller, I told you they both are good people. Scheller maintains two factories in China, so she's conflicted. I question whether she'd be representing the people of this district or her business interest. In that story, I also pointed to her ties to extremists like Steve Lynch. So did Wild during the debate.
Scheller refused to distance herself from the failed NorCo Exec candidate, who threatened last year to bring "20 strong men" to remove Northampton Area School Directors over, of all things, a mask mandate. She pointed out that he has never been charged with a crime. Nit yet. By his own admission, he was visited by the FBI concerning the extent of his participation in the attempted coup on January 6. Most recently, Nazareth police were called to a restaurant hosting a local Republican meeting when he refused the owner's demand that he leave. So give him time.
Instead of condemning the brutal hammer assault of the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Lynch has used the occasion to spin ridiculous conspiracy theories based on a source that has been discredited for posting disinformation.
In the Facebook rant you can read yourself, Lynch calls the incident "[l]ies told by the speaker of the house to cover up the fact that her husband was messing around with a male prostitute." Mr. Toxic Masculinity then brays that Pelosi's husband "is a drunken scumbag that prefers male prostitutes over your decrepit bag of bones."
Now I'll admit that Lynch, who makes constant references to men and likes to post half naked pictures of himself, is far more knowledgeable about male prostitutes than I. Nevertheless, his rant is just a continuation of the divisive rhetoric that led an unhinged man to physically hurt someone.
Lisa Scheller has continued to embrace this divisive narcissist instead of standing up for decency and inclusion.
Just like she did with Trump.
