The website Conservative Treehouse had an article posted on their page entitled UniParty At Work – Paul Ryan SuperPac Campaigned to Elect Democrat Conor Lamb. In it they claim the following.
Now, a stunning discovery surfaces of Paul Ryan’s Congressional Leadership SuperPAC, congressionalleadershipfund.org, actually campaigning for the Democrat, Conor Lamb, in the recent PA18 congressional race.
As evidenced by Big League Politics the Paul Ryan SuperPAC sent a mailer to Pennsylvania CD-18 voters touting Lamb’s favorable position on gun ownership rights
The page includes three photos of a mailer allegedly sent out prior to the election.
There are a whole bunch of other claims listed on that page but I'm interested in the claim at the top of the page in particular.
Did a Paul Ryan aligned SuperPAC help elect Democrat Conor Lamb? And if so, is there a reason besides what is proposed in the linked article?
Edit: DJClayworth raised a valid point that SuperPACs, by definition, cannot be controlled by politicians. However, while SuperPACs aren't controlled, they are often linked to a specific politician. In the Congressional Leadership Fund's case they are considered to be linked to Paul Ryan.
The Super PAC, which is closely linked to former House Speaker John Boehner and House GOP leadership, was founded in 2011 and spent nearly $10 million in the 2012 cycle electing Republican candidates. Following Boehner's resignation from the U.S. Congress and the election of Paul D. Ryan as Speaker of the House, Congressional Leadership Fund has become closely linked to Ryan.
