The college student who was originally believed to have accused Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg of sexual assault says known hoaxer Jacob Wohl attempted to trap him in a “Jussie Smollett-esque situation” after they flew him to Washington, D.C. under the guise of discussing the possibility of hiring him for opposition research against Buttigieg.
In a press release obtained by Big League Politics, Hunter Kelly explains how fraudsters Wohl and Jack Burkman used his likeness to write a fake Medium article and Twitter account accusing Buttigieg of sexually assaulting him.
According to Kelly, his first contact with Wohl occurred on April 24, when they spoke via the messaging and voice communication app Signal. Kelly states that Wohl invited him to D.C. with the intent of discussing how Kelly could be hired by Wohl, who claimed his “task force” was sponsored by President Donald J. Trump’s reelection campaign, to conduct opposition research against Buttigieg.
Instead, Kelly says when he arrived in D.C. on April 29, Wohl showed him the draft version of the now-deleted Medium article, in which Kelly’s name and likeness were used to accuse Buttigieg of sexual assault. Kelly repeatedly said he was “uncomfortable” with the article from 2 a.m. until he went to bed at 4:30 a.m., when he then repeated to Wohl that he was not comfortable with the publication of the article. Kelly says Wohl told him they would discuss whether to publish the article after Kelly slept.
By time Kelly woke up on April 29, at around 11 a.m., Wohl told him the article had been published and that he was a “‘star’ and that people were eating it up.”
“So this means, without my permission, a disgusting article pretending to be me was lambasted across the Internet,” wrote Kelly. “Not only that, but Wohl had created a fake Twitter (@realHunterKelly, since suspended) and a fake Gmail in my name and who knows what else.”
Kelly added that “reading the story made me sick to my stomach.”
He goes on to say that upon realizing he still was not on board, Burkman attempted to bribe Kelly for his silence and continued use of his name and likeness, promising him “as much as purchasing ‘any house I wanted,'” if he would agree to sign off on a script they maintained would be legally nonbinding.
Kelly says that in order to leave the house, which he says he was told “was not an option,” he reluctantly signed the document and left. He was in contact with his parents throughout this experience, and later left the residence where he was staying with Wohl.
According to Kelly, “Wohl and Burkman said that it would ‘be over once more people came forward after I spoke my truth,'” and added that “My truth is that I was never raped by Peter Buttigieg, nor was I in Washington D.C. in February 2019.”
He went on to apologize for his name being used to spread the hoax.
“Had I known I was getting roped up into a Jussie Smollett-esque situation, I would have rejected their offer and stayed in Michigan,” wrote Kelly. “I thought this was going to be a couple days of talking facts and seeing what LEGITIMATE (Kelly’s emphasis) dirt we could get on Peter Buttigieg.”
Kelly concluded, “I am, from the bottom of my heart, truly sorry for everyone involved in the very serious #MeToo movement. I will continue to use my voice and HONESTY to make a difference.” He added that the two most important parts of his character are his “honesty and integrity.”
“Had I gone forward with this despicable scheme they concocted, I would have lost both of those things and became another one of their useless pawns.”
Big League Politics previously contacted the Wohl family for comment on this news item, and has still received no response.
An earlier version of this article said Kelly’s first contact with Wohl was on April 25. Kelly later realized he first communicated with Wohl on April 24.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’
How pathetic are these guys?
The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.
Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.
“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.
He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.
“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.
Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.
Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.
“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.
Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.
“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.
Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
