Rudy Salas, a California Democrat Assemblyman and candidate for Congress, admitted to lying about his age on Tinder and Bumble. This was after a Tuesday report revealed screenshots of his profile. Salas is running as a Democrat to challenge U.S. Rep. David Valadao, (R-CA), in the midterm elections within the newly drawn Twenty Second Congressional District. This was after the San Joaquin Valley Sun published screenshots from a female user on Tuesday.
Salas’s campaign confirmed that the screenshots were accurate after the Sun published them. It portrays the congressional hopeful as being 11 years younger than he really is.
His Tinder profile said that he was 34 years old, a “World Traveler”, and had never married. His profile said, “Let’s laugh, smile and enjoy the journey”
According to Tinder, the five-term assemblyman also works as an “Agent in Government”
In the question-and answer section of his Bumble profile, he revealed that honesty, loyalty, and a good-hearted heart are his top qualities.
His “zombie-apocalypse plan,” which he calls “the zombie apocalypse,” is to “live out the apocalypse, reb…society…and have some fun **** along the way.”
The Congressional Leadership Fund, a Super PAC supported by the House Republicans leadership, questioned Salas’s lies.
Salas will face ex-Fresno City Councilman Chris Mathys, and Kings County Board of Education Trustee Adam Medeiros at the primary on June 7.
