The New York Post: Right-wing trolls allegedly tried to smear Pete Buttigieg with bogus sex claim

Two right-wing internet trolls attempted to smear Pete Buttigieg with a bogus sex assault claim, a report said on Monday.

The pair, Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl, approached a third party in an attempt to concoct a story that the presidential hopeful had sex with the man while he was drunk, according to The Daily Beast.

Wohl specifically said his intent was to blunt the recent momentum surrounding the South Bend, Indiana, mayor and called Buttigieg a “terminal threat” to President Donald Trump’s reelection.

The candidate told the publication that the hoax was a feeble attempt to hurt his campaign.
