I guess they see him as a real threat.

A pair of right-wing provocateurs are being accused of attempting to recruit young Republican men to level false allegations of sexual assault against Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg.

The details of the operatives’ attempt emerged as one man suddenly surfaced with a vague and uncorroborated allegation that Buttigieg had assaulted him. The claim was retracted hours later on a Facebook page appearing to belong to the man.

A Republican source told The Daily Beast that lobbyist Jack Burkman and internet troll Jacob Wohl approached him last week to try to convince him to falsely accuse Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, of engaging him sexually while he was too drunk to consent.

The source who spoke to The Daily Beast said Burkman and Wohl made clear that their goal was to kneecap Buttigieg’s momentum in the 2020 presidential race. The man asked to remain anonymous out of a concern that the resulting publicity might imperil his employment, and because he said Wohl and Burkman have a reputation for vindictiveness.

But the source provided The Daily Beast with a surreptitious audio recording of the meeting, which corroborates his account. In it, Wohl appears to refer to Buttigieg as a “terminal threat” to President Donald Trump’s reelection next year.

Wohl and Burkman flew one young man to DC, ostensibly to work on a political outreach program:

“To keep it brief for now, I was approached by a political figure to come to DC to discuss political situations from the standpoint of a gay Republican. When I arrived they discussed Peter Buttigieg and started talking about how they would be working a campaign against him.”

When the man woke up the next day there was an article published with his name on it accusing Buttigieg of sexual impropriety, and a fake Twitter account featuring his name and likeness.

Some Right Wing outlets were quick to jump on the “story.”

In response he posted this on his Facebook page: 

“I WAS NOT SEXUALLY ASSAULTED.”

According to the Daly Beast article, there were a number of gay men approached by the two Right Wing operatives, and promises of a huge payoff if they participated.

By the way, if this Wohl character sounds familiar he was the same idiot who tried to convince a woman to come forward with false sexual assault allegations against Robert Mueller.

    This crap started with ACORN and James O’Keefe (who is probably still crawling around in slime somewhere).

    Majorities of Americans said in a new poll both that they personally were supportive of the idea of America electing a gay president and that the country was not ready for such a candidate to be elected.

    70 percent of registered voters told a Quinnipiac University poll on Tuesday that they are open to electing a gay president, including 46 percent of Republican voters.

    A smaller majority, 52 percent, added however that they did not believe the country at large was ready to vote for a gay candidate.

    The poll comes as South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) has surged to the top tier of candidates in some polls of early primary states, though he still trails challengers for the Democratic nomination including Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

    A Suffolk University-Boston Globe poll released Tuesday found Buttigieg tied with Sanders for the first time in a poll of New Hampshire primary voters with 12 percent of the vote, trailing Biden who registered support from 20 percent of voters.

    A poll earlier this month from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal found that 54 percent of voters would be “comfortable” with a gay president, while an additional 14 percent would be “enthusiastic” about electing one.

    The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,044 voters nationwide between April 26-29. The margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.
