Fake Buttigieg Accuser: ‘I Was Set Up By Jacob Wohl’ (EXCLUSIVE)
The college student originally believed to have accused Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg of sexual assault has exclusively told Big League Politics that he was “set up” by known hoaxer Jacob Wohl.
In Facebook messages exchanged between this journalist and Hunter Kelly, the student who had his identity used to accuse Buttigieg, Kelly revealed that he was “set up” by Wohl after meeting with him this month under false pretenses.
“I was approached by a political figure to come to DC to discuss political situations from the standpoint of a gay Republican,” Hunt wrote in his official statement. “When I arrived they discussed Peter Buttigieg and started talking about how they would be working on a campaign against him.”
He says he then woke up the next day to learn his name was used to spread a false rape accusation against Buttigieg.
When asked by Big League Politics for the identity of the person who used his identity, Kelly informed us it was Wohl.
“No one stole my identity. I was set up by Jacob Wohl.”
Kelly intends to release a lengthier public statement in the coming days.
Wohl was banned from Twitter earlier this year after telling the media he planned to create a series of fake Twitter accounts to spread lies and disinformation about the Mueller investigation and President Donald J. Trump’s political opponents. According to reports, his plan was to circulate false rumors accusing Robert Mueller of sexual impropriety and sexual assault.
After his ban, he was allegedly caught making false death threats against himself in another effort to create a hoax and spread fake news, and possibly to garner sympathy after his Twitter ban.
If Kelly’s accusations are true, this would mark a new low for the beleaguered Wohl family.
Big League Politics attempted to contact the Wohl family for comment on this story but did not receive a response in time for publication.
