The QAnon conspiracy theory was linked to the Capitol insurrection. Here are 43 congressional candidates who have embraced it.
http://www.mediamatters.org/qanon-conspiracy-theory/here-are-qanon-supporte rs-running-congress-2022


Update (last updated 8/3/21): This article has been repeatedly updated with more congressional candidates and details.

Multiple people who have expressed some level of support for the QAnon conspiracy theory, which got its start on far-right message boards, are running for Congress in 2022.

The QAnon conspiracy theory, which revolves around an anonymous account known as ďQ,Ē started on far-right message board site 4chan, later moving to fellow far-right message board site 8chan, which has since relaunched as 8kun. (Beyond the QAnon conspiracy theory, 8chan/8kun has been linked to multiple instances of white supremacist terrorism, including the 2019 massacre in El Paso, Texas.) Some supporters of QAnon have been tied to violent incidents and participated in the January 6 insurrection at the United States Capitol, and multiple government agencies have issued internal warnings of domestic terrorism regarding supporters of the conspiracy theory.

Among these 43 candidates who have previously endorsed or given credence at some level to the conspiracy theory or promoted QAnon content:

Eleven are from Florida, eight are from California, four are from Texas, two each are from Arizona, Nevada, New Jersey, Illinois, New York, and Ohio, and there is one each from Maryland, Rhode Island, Oregon, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, and Colorado.

One of the candidates, in Florida, is running for a special congressional election being held in January 2022.
Forty are Republicans and three are independents.
Thirty-three previously ran for Congress in 2020. Two previously ran for a state legislative seat in 2020.
Below are the 2022 congressional candidates who previously endorsed or gave credence to the conspiracy theory or promoted QAnon content, organized by state and then by last name in alphabetical order.

Have you verified these, teasel?

I can only speak to the local listed, and can assure you he is not "MAGA." What he is is your typical political wh*re who will jump on any train he hopes will take him to DC. At the moment he is celebrating Indian independence day (we have a large local Indian H1B community) So MAGA, huh? Very Qanon. lol

Sort of like the Dem politicians who ran to embrace BLM but don't genuinely support its aims.

This is how politics works. Crazy, I know.

'Q' obsessed.

So, how many Q'anon were arrested and charged with insurrection? For that matter, how many of the mostly peaceful protesters were arrested and charged with insurrection?

NONE, ZILCH, ZERO!

Yeah, showing a fact to a leftist is like showing a cross to Dracula.
