UPDATE: An exclusive interview with Hunter Kelly reveals that he was allegedly set up by known fraudster Jacob Wohl.
The Internet has been awash with skepticism over a sexual assault claim made by a man named Hunter Kelly against 2020 presidential candidate and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Big League Politics has been looking into the accuser. Here’s what we found:
Compare a Facebook photo:
To the Medium photo:
Another Facebook account for Hunter Kelly in Big Rapids, Michigan also matches the photographic description of the Medium accuser.
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 reporters, 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.

WATCH: “Are You A Junkie?” Joe Biden FLIPS On CBS Reporter After Question About Cognitive Test
Biden didn’t appreciate the question.
Joe Biden responded angrily to a question from a CBS News reporter on taking a cognitive test Wednesday, asking Errol Barnett if he was a “junkie” and stating that he should have to take a drug test in order to interview Biden with the assumption he was taking cocaine.
“No, I haven’t taken a test… Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man! That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, you take a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not? Are you a junkie?”
The inference that CBS reporter Errol Barnett is a junkie would’ve almost certainly been blasted as offensive if President Trump or another public figure made the claim. At the most, Biden’s ad hominem response to the legitimate question reveals his sensitivity to claims of his own cognitive decline.
“I know you’re trying to goad me… I’m so looking forward to having an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president in the debates.”
President Trump has argued that Biden should take an equivalent of the Montreal Cognitive Fitness Test, which he took around a year ago with results indicating strong cognitive capacity. The question of mental acuity has consistently arisen as Biden frequently commits mental errors and gaffes during public appearances, ranging from forgetting which state he’s in, confusing his wife and his sister, and even forgetting what office he’s campaigning for.
Biden went on to struggle to pronounce the phrase “physical fitness.”
