Infamous shit stirrers Jacob Wohl and lobbyist Jack Burkman attempt a disinformation campaign to smear Democratic hopeful Pete Buttigieg.
The week of April 22 (date unknown), Wohl and Burkman contact a gay Republican and try to convince him to accuse Buttigieg of sexually assaulting him while he was too drunk to consent.
The man rejects the offer, but someone else says yes.
A man using the pseudonym Hunter Kelly posts a “vague and uncorroborated” allegation of sexual assault on Medium on April 29. Actually, it’s also possible Hunter Kelly is Wohl or Burkman and that no one was stupid enough to take on the duo’s plot. Shortly after the accusation goes viral, the first man contacts the Daily Beast.
