Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Lackawanna) is a top target for Republicans in November. While a crowded GOP field fights to face the incumbent Democrat in the Trump-friendly 8th District, a super PAC aims to shape a narrative in the race. 

The Congressional Leadership Fund, a GOP super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, debuted a new website, crookedcartwright.com.

The allegation stems from a piece in the conservative Washington Examiner about a Cartwright bill that would significantly increase the amount of insurance liability coverage required for truck drivers and companies. Cartwright and his wife Marion Munley hold a financial interest in his wife’s family law firm, where she works as an attorney specializing in truck accident lawsuits. 

“Crooked Matt Cartwright was supposed to be looking out for Pennsylvania families, but the only thing Cartwrightwas looking out for in Congress was ways to grease the wheels of his family’s business interests,” said CLF Spokesman Calvin Moore. “Matt Cartwright got caught abusing his office and our new site, CrookedCartwright.com, will be an ever-present reminder to voters of how Crooked Matt Cartwright put himself over Pennsylvania families.”
