Jacob Wohl Allegedly Tried to Smear Peter Buttigieg, Failed Almost Immediately
On Monday, an accusation against 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg surfaced and then was promptly debunked by the Daily Beast in just a matter of hours. In a Medium post, a “Hunter Kelly” claimed that Buttigieg came on to him this past February while he was too drunk to consent. The problem is that the actual Hunter Kelly didn’t write this. In fact, he didn’t even know the story was happening.
In a Facebook post, Kelly writes, “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. I went to bed and woke up to a fake Twitter @RealHunterKelly and an article that I in no way endorsed or wrote.”
It turns out that “political figure” is Jacob Wohl, who’s probably most famous for a comically inept attempt to frame Robert Mueller for sexual misconduct. Back in October, news came out that Wohl had reportedly been offering women $20,000 to put their names on fabricated accusations against the former special counsel, and the scheme blew up so horrendously that it’s hard to believe that Wohl wasn’t trying to get caught. Now, he seems to be using the same awful plot to frame Buttigieg. The Daily Beast spoke to a second, anonymous GOP source who claims that Wohl and lobbyist Jack Burkman approached him before they settled on Kelly:
