Lambert For Congress - Lambert Calls for Special Prosecutor in IRS Scandal 

Nashua – Today, the House Ways and Means Committee held a hearing regarding the IRS Scandal and the thousands of lost emails from Lois Lerner and other senior IRS officials. John Koskinen, Commissioner of the IRS, testified before the committee. In response, former State Senator and 2nd Congressional District candidate Gary Lambert released the following statement:


“Clearly, the IRS, Lois Lerner, and the Obama administration are not cooperating fully with the House of Representatives investigation into the illegal targeting of conservatives by the IRS,” said Lambert. “Crimes were committed here – American citizens were unfairly harassed and targeted by their own government on the basis of their political beliefs.”


“It is now been more than a year since the American public learned of these criminal acts and yet no has been charged with a crime, much less gone to jail. Therefore, I call on President Obama to appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of this scandal as the Obama Justice Department is clearly unwilling to do."


“Furthermore, I ask Rep. Ann Kuster to join me in calling for a Special Prosecutor. Her own tax problems are well documented. In order for the people of New Hampshire to have confidence Rep. Kuster is seeking the truth about the IRS scandal, she needs to join me in asking for this investigation to be moved out of the political arena and into the hands of an independent Special Prosecutor.”


Lambert For Congress - Lambert Signs Americans for Prosperity No Climate Tax Pledge 

Nashua – Today, 2nd Congressional District candidate Gary Lambert signed the “No Climate Tax” pledge offered by Americans for Prosperity. The “No Climate Tax” pledge states:


“I, Gary Lambert, pledge to the American people that I will oppose any legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue.”


Lambert also issued the following statement:


“Today, I promise the people of the 2nd District that I will not support any climate change legislation that raises taxes,” said Lambert. “New Hampshire has some of the highest energy prices in the country and right now, working families and small businesses are struggling to make ends meet. One of the worst things government could do at a time like this is restrict energy production and increase costs. And yet, that’s exactly what President Obama has done. Instead of more government regulation and red-tape, we need an all-of-the-above American energy strategy in order to remain competitive globally and create jobs domestically.”


“Our representatives in Washington must stand up for Granite Staters. Therefore, I call on all of the other candidates in this race – Congresswoman Kuster, Representative Garcia, and Representative Lawrence – to join in me in signing the 'No Climate Tax' pledge. Voters deserve to know where the candidates stand on this vital issue.”


Garcia For Congress - Gary Lambert already making false campaign pledges



CONCORD, NH – Tom Szold, campaign manager for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, released the following statement in response to Gary Lambert’s recent pledge to not support any climate change legislation that raises taxes.

“Gary Lambert has pledged to an outside group to oppose new climate taxes, yet has refused to renounce his support for the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a regional cap-and-trade scheme.  Gary has long been one of New Hampshire's most vocal supporters of RGGI, a cap-and-trade program that has resulted in a tax increase for the hardworking people of the Granite State. He has voted repeatedly to preserve this costly and expensive program, and even cast the deciding vote to prevent New Hampshire from ending its participation in RGGI. RGGI exists in New Hampshire because of Gary Lambert."

“Gary cannot have it both ways; he cannot make campaign promises to oppose new taxes, yet support policies that create those very same climate taxes. Gary’s new climate-tax promise is a perfect example of the convenient policy shifts that Americans have become far too accustomed to from DC politicians like Rep. Ann Kuster and President Obama. This is the reason why the American people are growing frustrated with politics as usual.  In contrast, Marilinda Garcia offers a new generation of leadership and is the only candidate in this race with a consistent record opposing cap-and-trade,” said Szold.

NHDP - Flailing Garcia Campaign Lacking Support in Second Congressional District 

More Than Half of Garcia's Endorsers Are From Outside Her District 

Concord, NH--Marilinda Garcia has repeatedly failed to garner endorsements from supporters who can actually vote for her in November. Each time her campaign has released a list of endorsements, the vast majority of them are from outside the congressional district in which she is running. Her original list of 67 supporters included 38 from CD 1, and her follow up list of 52 supporters included another 32 from CD1. It seems her messy, fledgling campaign cannot scrape up enough support in CD 2 for even one satisfactory press release. 
“Frankly, Marilinda Garcia's lists of endorsers are an embarrassment. For someone who believes she is fit to represent New Hampshire's second congressional district, it's laughable that more than half of her 'endorsers' are from elsewhere,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “Not only does Marilinda Garcia not show up for votes, listen to her constituents, or know where her endorsers live, but her radical Tea Party stances would adversely impact the families of the second congressional district. New Hampshire deserves better."
Garcia clandestinely filed for office yesterday. Perhaps that is because, despite boasting that she is a voice for millennials, a recent Concord Monitor article found only one young supporter, who can't vote for Garcia because he lives in CD 1.
