QAnon Role In 2022 Midterms
At least 36 Republicans running for office in 2022 have allied themselves with the debunked QAnon conspiracy theory. QAnon falsely claims that an international network of celebrities and politicians are trafficking children. There is no basis for this claim. QAnon affiliated Republicans running in 2022 include Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO).
