UPDATE: An exclusive interview with Hunter Kelly reveals that he was allegedly set up by known fraudster Jacob Wohl.
The mayor of South Bend, Indiana and an upstart 2020 presidential candidate has been accused of sexual assault.
“My name is Hunter Kelly. I am 21 years old. This is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do. For the past three nights, I have not slept even a single hour. I have vomited eight times,” Kelly said in a Medium blog post.
I was sexually assaulted by Mayor Pete Buttigieg. I didn’t know who he was back in February, only that he told me he was an important politician. When I started seeing him on television three weeks ago as a Presidential candidate, I thought about coming forward.
I am a gay man. I have been grappling with my identity for a number of years. I live, work, and attend college in rural Michigan. I know that by coming forward, I will make a hard life even harder. But I must do so — I must do so — for my country, for other gay men like me, and most importantly to stop a very bad man from becoming President of the United States.
I must confess that this is the toughest thing I have ever had to do. For two weeks now, I have been contemplating suicide. I see myself jumping from a building or a bridge. I know that years and years of counseling may lie in front of me.
Kelly did not share the whole story of his encounter with Buttigieg.
“In the days and weeks ahead, I will share my full story with the nation,” his post finished.
This story is developing…
Big League Politics has been looking into the accuser. Here’s what we found:
Compare a Facebook photo:
To the Medium photo:
In the Medium post, Kelly describes himself as a 21-year-old who attends a college in rural Michigan. That description fits with a post on the Hunte Kelly Facebook page, which says he began a program at Ferris State University in 2018. Ferris State is, indeed, in rural Michigan. It is well north of Grand Rapids.
A Ferris State Dean’s list post from fall of 2018 also shows that a Hunter Kelly is enrolled, and apparently a good student.
Some Facebook posts show that Kelly is a Trump fan:
Hunter Kelly also has an Instagram account, which lists him as a Ferris State student. The profile photo appears to match both Facebook and Medium, though the account itself is set to private.
Hunter Kelly also has a recently-opened Twitter account, which he used to share his Medium post Monday.
The account recently posted a Tweet explaining that he has received hundreds of phone calls and messages from reporter, and is sorting through them to do an interview.
“I’ve received hundreds of phone calls today from journalists doing dogged reporting. They’ve called my school, my friends, my family and people who barely know me. I’m now sorting through my messages to do an interview about my horrific experience. Please pray for me,” he said.
Either this is an elaborate hoax, and one for which Kelly’s life will surely be ruined, or he’s actually got a story to tell about Buttigieg.
The only other possibility is that someone stole his identity and made up the allegations in order to spite the candidate.
This story is still developing.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
