“Believers of the [QAnon] conspiracy believe they are receiving updates on the covert operation ​to take down this cabal via cryptic riddles posted by an anonymous source ​on a far-right message board that, once decoded, reveal ​top-secret information.” – Right Wing Watch

Perkins acknowledged the conspiracy in her victory speech: “As all of us Q people like to say: ‘Where we go one, we go all’.”

In a web video, Perkins said, “I stand with President Trump. I stand with Q and the team.”

After she won the nomination, Perkins deleted her pro-QAnon video and claimed she “would never describe herself as a follower” of the conspiracy theory.

Her Twitter history shows that she has been tweeting regularly in favor of the conspiracy theory since January 2018.
