ICYMI: Liz Mathis's Husband Locks Down Social Media Over Anti-Christian Posts
"Mark Mathis, the husband of Iowa Democratic congressional candidate Liz Mathis, has a lengthy digital footprint across his now-private Facebook page, where he regularly disparages Christians and posts left-wing content from pages such as 'U.S. Democratic Socialists' and 'The Other 98%,' which pledges to fight to 'tax the rich' and win 'the class war.' Liz Mathis is running to unseat Republican congresswoman Ashley Hinson, who narrowly flipped Iowa's First Congressional District last cycle.
Mark Mathis's most politically charged posts include criticism of Christians. He shared a photo that said 'Republican Christianity' is 'starting to look a lot like extremist Islam,' a screenshot of a Tweet that said conservative Christians don't know the difference between homosexuals and homo sapiens, and an article that said Christians who oppose illegal immigrants getting citizenship are 'asshole[s].' In December 2017, he shared a post that depicts 'Republican Jesus' telling a rape survivor, 'I know he raped you, Sally. But what’s really important is the Senate seat.'
Mark Mathis may play a significant role in the campaign; Liz Mathis’s campaign website prominently features a photo of the two of them, and the couple remained business partners even after Liz Mathis was elected to office. The family business, AMPERAGE Marketing & Fundraising, appears to be led by the pair.
Liz Mathis listed herself as a "family owner" of AMPERAGE on her LinkedIn as recently as July, according to Fox News, and posts from the company’s social media come from both Mark and Liz Mathis. 'A message from Mark and Liz Mathis: Stay Home. Stay Safe. Keep Calm,' the company wrote last April."
"This is yet another example of the contempt Iowa Democrat have for Iowans of faith. Iowans first saw it with Cindy Axne, and now Liz Mathis," said Republican Party of Iowa Communications Director Kollin Crompton.
