Lambert For Congress - Lambert Calls for False Ad to Be Taken Down: Invites Rep. Garcia to Join His Demand 

Nashua – Yesterday, a political ad in the 2nd Congressional District featuring Representative Marilinda Garcia was shown to be false. In response, 2nd Congressional District candidate Gary Lambert issued the following statement: 

"It is wrong and sad to see an outside money group bankrolled by Washington insiders blatantly distort the facts in order to try to win an election," said Lambert. "Dishonest campaign tactics like this should have no place in our democratic elections and that's why I'm calling for this false ad to be taken down immediately. I invite Representative Garcia to take a stand against dirty politics and join me in calling for this false ad to be taken down."

Garcia For Congress - ICYMI: Lambert campaign reviewing questionable 2Q contributions 

All, 

In case you missed it, the New Hampshire Journal yesterday reported that Gary Lambert, a candidate for Congress in New Hampshire’s 2nd District, appears to have repeatedly violated campaign finance laws. According to the New Hampshire Journal article: 

“Lambert for Congress accepted a $1,000 contribution on June 30 from The Palmier Foundation, which is described by its founder, Boston investment firm head Dan Palmier, on his web site, as a ‘501(c)(3) charitable corporation created for the purpose of ‘giving back.’ The Internal Revenue Code prohibits 501(c)(3) charitable organizations from contributing to candidates for federal office.” 

The article went on to explain: 

“Also, the Lambert for Congress campaign report lists receiving a $1,000 contribution, also on June 30, from ‘Fairfield’s,’ with the same Keene address as Fairfield’s Cadillac, Buick, GMC, Inc. The firm is listed on the Secretary of State corporate division’s web site as a corporation. Federal candidates are forbidden under federal election law from accepting contributions from corporations.”

Garcia For Congress - Statement on Obamacare Subsidies Ruling 

CONCORD, NH – Marilinda Garcia, Republican candidate for New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District, released the following statement in response to a federal appeals court declaring that the majority of Obamacare’s subsidies are illegal.

 

“This court ruling further demonstrates the challenges and shortcomings in implementing a law that Democrats in Washington did not bother to read before voting for it,” said Garcia. “ In addition to using illegal subsidies for federal health insurance exchange enrollees, this costly and disastrous program has wreaked havoc on our national health care system.  Obamacare has resulted in dropped coverage for thousands of hardworking New Hampshire residents, higher premiums and lost benefits, and almost half of New Hampshire’s hospitals being designated as ‘out of network.'"

 

"However, Washington politicians like Rep. Ann Kuster remain adamant in their support of Obamacare, and refuse to recognize its adverse effects on the people of New Hampshire. If I am elected to Congress, I will work to dismantle Obamacare, and push for common-sense and innovative health care reforms which utilize a bottom-up approach and put the power back in the hands of individuals and families."

Garcia For Congress - Statement on Gary Lambert Illegal Contributions 

"/

 

CONCORD, NH – Tom Szold, campaign manager for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, issued the following statement in response to revelations that congressional candidate Gary Lambert accepted multiple illegal donations.

“It seems that Gary Lambert has repeatedly broken one of most fundamental campaign finance laws on the books,” said Szold. “The fact that Mr. Lambert accepted illegal campaign contributions from at least two different corporations shows either that he has lost control of his campaign, or that he is willing to break the law in order to win. Either way, the people of New Hampshire deserve better.
