Matt Lynch for 14th Ohio Congressional District
Matt Lynch Smeared with Liberal Lies
Dave Joyce, supported by the anti-conservative Main Street Partners led by Steve LaTourette, unleashed a smear campaign against me this week. In a blatant attempt to take the focus off his own Big Government record, he's trying to mislead voters by claiming I am irresponsible with my taxes. Nothing could be farther from the truth, so here are the facts:
In 1993 I lost my first wife Janie after an 18 month battle with Leukemia. During that time my days were devoted to her care while I spent most nights sleeping in a chair by her hospital bed. My law practice suffered and after her death I had to close my office completely. I turned my attention to raising my three teenage daughters and rebuilding my life. During those difficult times I struggled with paying over $100,000 in medical bills with very limited income. All my taxes and bills were eventually paid, but they were paid late.
Here is what Bob Bennett, Chairman of the Ohio Republican Party said in 2012 when the Democrats smeared me in the same way Joyce did this week: “To think that someone who claims to be a leader would say such outrageous things about a man who was taking care of his terminally ill wife makes me sick to my stomach”.

But Dave Joyce did not stop there. He piled on his lies when he claimed I took improper deductions on rental property. Again, here are the facts:
I inherited a small condominium in 2007. When the deed was put in my name the County mistakenly marked the property as my residence. As a result they sent me an incorrect real estate tax bill over the next four years. The Auditor corrected his mistake in 2012 and sent me a corrected tax bill. (CLICK HERE to see auditors letter and corrected bill) This was a billing error, nothing more. . . and please note the billing error was about $45. . . that’s right. . . Dave Joyce smeared me over a $45 billing error. Maybe he should spend less time misleading voters and more time dealing with the massive debts he’s helped rack up in Congress!
My opponent knows he is in trouble. He knows he will lose if voters find out the truth about his liberal record and compare it to my Conservative principles. . . but he has the money to spread his liberal lies.
I have no illusions about politics. . . it is a contact sport, and I can take a hit. . . but without your help I cannot defend myself. Please forward this email to everyone on your list and ask them to donate so the truth can get out. No matter how small, I need your help to have any hope of victory.
Dave Joyce is smearing me because he is afraid. He knows the Lynch For Congress campaign is having success, including endorsements from important groups like FreedomWorks, Ohio Right To Life, and the National Association for Gun Rights. Please help by spreading the word and donating what you can!
Finally, ask yourself this question. . . If a candidate cannot be honest with you in his campaign, will he be honest with you in Congress?
Please continue to pray, spread the word, and donate if you can!

Geauga County, Ohio – Republican Matt Lynch has received the endorsement of the Ohio Right To Life Society as the challenger for the 14th Congressional seat. Lynch was given the prestigious “Honor Roll” designation reserved for candidates that have demonstrated a “lifelong perseverance and support of the pro-life mission”. The Republican incumbent Dave Joyce was not endorsed by the state wide pro-life organization.
“I have been committed to the pro-life cause for decades”. Lynch said, “long before I began my political career I recognized that human life was sacred from womb to tomb”. “My wife and I were volunteering at crisis pregnancy centers 30 years ago and that commitment continues today.” Lynch continued, “ As Christians and as Republicans our duty is to assist those in crisis and offer a hopeful future”.
Matt Lynch also received support from around the State as he picked up endorsements from State Representative Ron Hood from Hocking County and State Representative John Adams of Shelby County. Also announced this week was an endorsement for Matt Lynch from “Our Liberty Elections” located in Virginia that stated “Matt Lynch’s conservative platform is inspiring, and he has shown great courage when facing political adversity.”
“I am grateful for all those who are recognizing that the 14th District deserves more than just lip service to the Republican Conservative cause” Lynch said, “The last two election cycles have made it clear that the path to victory is to stick to the values of Faith, Family and Freedom that have made our country great. Too many in Washington have lost touch with reality and are spending our nation into oblivion. It’s time for the insanity to stop.”

Geauga County, Ohio – Matt Lynch filed to run for Congress yesterday at the Lake County Board of Elections. Matt Lynch said he is running on behalf of the thousands of conservative moms and dads, senior citizens, small business owners, social conservatives, and hardworking men and women of Ohio who are concerned for their future. They are seeking someone who will stand for the proven success of conservative values combined with limiting government’s overreach that helps them achieve personal success and happiness. They are tired of the years of being lied to by candidates and the Republican establishment who use them to get elected only to later side with Democrats in passing destructive and intrusive liberal policies. Today, Matt Lynch joins you in drawing a line in the sand to say that you will be used no more.
His liberal Republican opponent’s embarrassing 46% Heritage Action conservative score shows his votes siding with his liberal Republican bosses and Democratic friends in selling out conservatives more than any other Republican congressman in Ohio. Matt Lynch stated, “Unlike my opponent, I have proven that when the liberal Republican establishment has attempted to bully me into betraying conservatives to support their destructive and intrusive liberal policies, I have stood up to them and and will not sell out the people who elected me.”
Matt Lynch also said, “These liberal Republicans will repeat their history of using their millions of dollars of special interest money to contact voters through advertisements, mailers, and phone calls attempting to destroy anyone who dares to stand up on behalf of conservatives who threaten their power.” Be aware that each time you receive their propaganda about Matt Lynch; they are trying to keep you deceived and under control.
While they are concerned about keeping their power, Matt Lynch is concerned about you keeping your freedom. Your right to have a successful and prosperous life based on proven conservative values will always be Matt Lynch’s guide. Americans can achieve great things if given the liberty to follow their dreams.

It's a Cinch. . . Vote for Lynch!
New Leadership To Do What’s Right
As an attorney and leader in Bainbridge Township, I first ran for office to stop the wasteful spending and tax hikes plaguing the Board of Trustees. I won and my first order of business was cutting my own pay. Over the next four years I led the way to cut the fat and reduced annual expenditures by 17%. In Columbus I stood against my own Party and voted against increases in the sales tax and real estate taxes. That’s the kind of leadership and fiscal restraint I will bring to Washington.
We will never solve the illegal immigration problem until we secure our borders. Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to 3 million illegals in 1986 in good faith but the politicians failed to deal with our open borders. The result: at least 15 million additional illegals here today! The burden on our schools, health care system and criminal justice system is enormous… estimated at a over 80 Billion Dollars each year!. We cannot repeat this mistake! Yet both Democrats and Republicans are about to do it again…the Democrats see a new crop of Democrat voters while Republican corporate interests see a source of cheap labor….while the American people suffer the consequences.
Congress has for too long abandoned its responsibility and allowed the President to exercise power far beyond Constitutional limits. I will not tolerate a President who uses his “pen and phone” to destroy the separation of powers so vital to our Republic. Personal liberty cannot survive if any man, especially the President, is the law unto himself. We need statesmen in Washington that are not afraid to stand up against the abuse of power demonstrated in Executive Orders.
We will never release the potential of our people if we cannot get government off our backs! There is no greater danger to our liberty and prosperity than the cost and burden of Obamacare. It needs to be repealed…plain and simple. Gutless Republicans take meaningless votes against it but fail to DEFUND OBAMACARE which is the one thing that actually would protect Americans.
Spending & the Debt
No amount of happy talk will solve our debt problems until we get spending under control. Establishment Republicans only seem interested in managing big government but not actually shrinking government. I’ll work with anyone to stop the insane spending but I will never agree to more debt in the name of bipartisanship.
Energy & Jobs
Creating jobs and protecting the environment are not conflicting ideas. Natural gas wells are creating thousands of jobs while offering cheap energy to consumers. It’s the kick-start our economy needs. We need to build the Keystone pipeline and encourage domestic energy production.
I will always respect the values and wisdom of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence which have been the foundation of our prosperity for over 200 years!
