Women demand apology from GOP candidate who lied about age on Tinder

    On Monday over 100 female constituents wrote to state Rep. Ryan Mackenzie demanding an apology after DailyMail.com reported he lied about his age on his Tinder profile by nearly a decade.

    Eight years into his state lawmaker career, Mackenzie was telling women on Tinder he was 37 when he was actually 29 in March 2020. He messaged at least one woman from the profile, 'Surviving the pandemic?'

    Mackenzie is now running for the U.S. House in Pennsylvania against Democrat incumbent Susan Wild.

    The concerned women said Mackenzie 'never took accountability' for the lie, noting his campaign only told DailyMail.com that he was neither engaged nor married at the time of the profile.

    On Monday over 100 female constituents wrote to state Rep. Ryan Mackenzie demanding an apology after DailyMail.com reported he lied about his age on his Tinder profile by nearly a decade

    'Trolling on Tinder for younger women is one thing (we can’t help but notice that you fudged your age by nearly a decade), but doing so while you are actively serving on the Pennsylvania State Legislature is another,' the letter read.

    'We can’t help but wonder what else you will lie to Pennsylvania women about over the next five months, as you attempt to capture our votes.'

    'We worry, if you cannot take accountability for your actions on something as small as a dating app, that you will not be able to honorably conduct yourself as our representative in Washington,' the women went on.

    His family had been in politics for decades at the time. He'd already briefly ran for Congress in 2018 and had represented the Lehigh Valley in the state house since 2012 alongside his mother, state Rep. Milou Mackenzie.

    Mackenzie is now locked in a tight race against incumbent Democrat Susan Wild for Pennsylvania's seventh district.

    Mackenzie is now married to wife Chloe and they have a young son.

    The district where Mackenzie and Wild will face off in November is one of the most evenly divided in the country — Biden only won it by 0.6 points in 2020 — and it remains a top target for the GOP. Wild has represented it since 2018.

    Mackenzie's Tinder profile claimed he was 'Always down for a good time! Outgoing, funny and enjoy traveling, skiing, trying new restaurants and getting drinks with friends.'

    His state house biography lists his birth date as August 3, 1982. The dog pictured in his Tinder profile is the same dog he has posted from his social media accounts.

    Mackenzie's profile lists him as a '9th generation resident of the Lehigh Valley.' He served in Trump-appointed positions on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Local Government Advisory Committee and as a commissioner on the President's Commission on White House Fellowships.
