Conor Lamb has jumped at every opportunity to prove he’s the ‘resistance’ candidate in PA-18 – but parroting liberal points has landed him in hot water…
Via the Washington Free Beacon:
In his early days as the party’s candidate, Lamb seized on a viral tweet by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) claiming lobbyists had more information on the tax proposal than she did. Lamb posted McCaskill’s tweet on his own page, writing that it was “written by & for corporate lobbyists” and pledging to “put an end to this hypocrisy.”
The tweet, one of his most popular, failed to mention that his father Thomas Lamb is senior vice president of government affairs for PNC, which disclosed last quarter that it was lobbying both chambers of Congress on tax reform proposals.
It turns out Lamb’s father is still a registered lobbyist in Pennsylvania, but don’t expect Conor to mention that on the trail.
Pennsylvania should take Conor Lamb’s advice next March and “put an end to this hypocrisy.”
