Scott Perry, a Republican representative for Pennsylvania's 10th congressional district, is facing backlash from Democrats and a group of Republicans due to his alleged role in promoting the "Big Lie."
Republicans Against Perry
The group of moderate Republicans united around "Republicans Against Perry" and intended to support a Democratic candidate in the elections. Pennsylvania Republican operative Craig Snyder commented, "We think he deserves to be replaced, and we think he can be replaced."
Pennsylvania Democratic strategist Mike Mikus told The Daily Beast, "Everything from his attempts to steal the 2020 presidential election to his extreme views on issues that are important like abortion, I think this district is primed to be extremely competitive." Perry, who leads the House Freedom Caucus, allegedly had a significant role in the 2020 election overturn attempt.
The FBI got involved
In 2022, Perry's phone was seized by the FBI. In a statement, he said, "This morning, while traveling with my family, 3 FBI agents visited me and seized my cell phone. They made no attempt to contact my lawyer, who would have made arrangements for them to have my phone if that was their wish."
Perry and Trump shared a lawyer
Perry's attorney, John Rowley, also a member of Trump's legal team, did not comment at the time, nor did the FBI. However, numerous reports described Perry's alleged role following President Biden's victory. January 6 committee revealed that Perry and Trump's chief of staff, Mark Meadows, communicated via an encrypted messaging app regarding the 2020 election.
Snyder offered more about the role of Republicans
Snyder said, "We're going to offer a set of critiques that we think people should consider about Perry's performance, both as a national legislator but also as a local representative." The conservative found that his party was no longer the same once Trump's rise began,
Perry's spokesperson commented
"The voters of the 10th Congressional District know that Scott Perry is and always has been fighting for them and their values every day in Congress," said Perry spokesperson Matt Beynon, arguing that Democratic operatives backed the Republicans Against Perry group.
Ads against Perry
"Republicans in Congress are receiving serious threats, and Scott Perry thinks it's funny," one ad says, and adds, "Funnyman Scott Perry doesn't represent Central Pennsylvania values." Snyder also called Perry a "band leader" of far right-wing Freedom Caucus, adding, "Both at the national level and local level, he's been a failed congressman, and that's the kind of information we want people to be aware of."
