Well knock me over with a feather, Charges of Mayor Pete Sexual Assault Were Fake News
To absolutely no one's surprise, the allegation that Mayor Pete Buttegieg, a Democratic presidential contender , raped a young man a few months ago were retracted after investigations into the matter by the media showed the whole thing was a dirty trick from Trump supporters. The alleged victim , one Hunter Kelly, had this to say
“It's important for everyone to know that I was not sexually assaulted and would never falsely accuse anyone,” he wrote. “To keep it brief for now, 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. I have since left and am working on a formal statement to give to everyone including the Buttigieg family.”https://www.thedailybeast.com/far-right-smear-merchants-jacob-wohl-and-jack-burkman-try-to-slime-pete-buttigieg-with-bogus-sex-assault-claim
The alleged mastermind of the hoax, Jacob Wohl, has attempted smears and dirty political tricks on Trump's behalf in the past.
