QAnon Believers Are Now Running for Congress

Welcome to our modern dystopia where believers in QAnon, a conspiracy theory, are running for elected office.

One such follower is congressional candidate Matthew Lusk, who is running unopposed for the Republican nomination in Florida’s fifth district, which is currently represented by Democrat Alfred Lawson. Speaking with the New York Times, Lusk said that he believes Q “brings what the fake news will not touch without slanting.” He even has a page on his website dedicated to the theory. The page, labeled Q, simply reads, “who is Q,” with the letter Q in large font.

Believers in QAnon subscribe to a collection of conspiracy theories about the “deep state” and believe that a person who goes by Q is a highly-ranked government official who posts clues about government corruption on online message boards. Followers often believe in Pizzagate — a theory that claims prominent Democrats were running a pedophile ring out of a D.C. pizza shop that led to a believer entering the business armed with an AR-15. And, they think that Trump was recruited to run for president by the military to break up a pedophile ring run by government officials. Believers also thought that Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was merely a cover and that he was really going to arrest top Democrats in the pedophile ring and hold them at Guantanamo Bay. Some also think that John F. Kennedy Jr. is not actually dead but is alive and a Trump supporter. The FBI has labeled the group a domestic terrorism threat.

Lusk isn’t the only Q believer seeking political office. A San Juan Capistrano, Calif., city council member recently ended a speech about the “deep state” by saying, “God bless Q.” And Erin Cruz, Republican primary candidate in California’s 36th, also believes that Q is posting accurate information, telling NBC News, “I think that the biggest thing with QAnon is there’s information coming out. And sometimes it is in line with what’s going on in government. So when you ask me, do I know what QAnon is? Yes, but what is it to everybody else? That’s the bigger thing.”
