A few weeks ago, a video of Steve Lynch, the Republican nominee for Northampton county executive in Pennsylvania, went viral when he declared to a crowd: “I’m going in with 20 strong men.”
He was talking about confronting a pro-mask school board. “I’m going to speak to the school board and I’m going to give them an option. They can leave or they can be removed,” he said.
His pronouncement did not address why he needed to roll so deep to a political meeting. Nor did he say why he needed men for this task and why they needed to be “strong.”
