Sean Parnell, the Pennsylvania Republican 17th Congressional District candidate, released an ad on Tuesday slamming Rep. Conor Lamb’s spokesman and brother, Coleman Lamb, for retweeting another user who called on Parnell to “burn in hell and die.”
Controversy arose in July when Coleman Lamb retweeted someone who urged for Parnell’s death.
Coleman Lamb wrote, “Can add @SeanParnellUSA here.”
National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) spokesman Michael McAdams said in July that Coleman Lamb’s tweet was “totally unhinged.”
“Totally unhinged behavior from @ConorLambPA’s little brother & campaign manager: wishing Lamb’s opponent and decorated Army combat veteran @SeanParnellUSA dies and burns in hell,” he wrote.
