LAS VEGAS, NV — (04-30-19) — Well known far-right con man Jacob Wohl, was exposed trying to create a fake sex scandal on presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Luckily it was exposed before it garnered any traction in news cycles.

Jacob Wohl attempted to sabotage Gay Mayor Pete Buttigieg’ campaign by posting a fake sex assault complaint, according to a new Daily Beast report. And he was not alone.

Another right wing con artist Jack Burkman, teamed up with Jacob Wohl to try and push the fake sex scandal story that “Buttigieg tried to assault a young man”.

The Daily Beast reported on the foiled scandal, which in one case involved an uncorroborated social media post which was retracted hours later.

The source also provided The Daily Beast with a recording of the conversation to corroborate his story.

The Daily Beast Reports:

“A Republican source told The Daily Beast that lobbyist Jack Burkman and internet troll Jacob Wohl approached him last week to try to convince him to falsely accuse Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, of engaging him sexually while he was too drunk to consent.

The source who spoke to The Daily Beast said Burkman and Wohl made clear that their goal was to kneecap Buttigieg’s momentum in the 2020 presidential race. The man asked to remain anonymous out of a concern that the resulting publicity might imperil his employment, and because he said Wohl and Burkman have a reputation for vindictiveness.”

The Daily Beast had an expert analyze the tape given to them by the source. Hafiz Malik, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, came to the conclusion that it is “highly likely” the voice is Jacob Wohl’s

These right wing con artists also uploaded an article written by someone named Hunter Kelly, which tried to push the fake sex assault narrative on gay mayor Pete Buttigieg.

The post so far has received 1.2k likes and reads as follows:
“I was sexually assaulted by Mayor Pete Buttigieg. I didn’t know who he was back in February, only that he told me he was an important politician. When I started seeing him on television three weeks ago as a Presidential candidate, I thought about coming forward.”

It is also a forgery that was tweeted out by the father of Jacob Wohl, who has a picture standing with Trump on his profile page and has over 47,000 followers. However when the story broke on the scam, the post has deleted.

Right Wing Con Artist Jacob Wohl Busted for Planting Fake Sexual Assault Story on Gay Mayor Pete Buttigieg

The real Hunter Kelly told the Daily Beast that it was definitely not him and he would not make a false allegation like that. Kelly also said he was asked to come to Washington D.C. to discuss politics from a gay Republican standpoint.

“It’s important for everyone to know that I was not sexually assaulted and would never falsely accuse anyone,” wrote Hunter Kelly. “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.” said Kelly.

Kelly also told the Daily Beast… “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.” said Kelly.

The right wing con artists also tried to pin a case of sexual assault on Special Counsel Robert Mueller late last year and that too also failed.
