The FEC is quizzing Arizona Congress hopeful and suspected QAnon ringleader Ron Watkins on why he failed to declare around 40% of his campaign funds
The Federal Election Commission is asking Watkins to clarify the source of an additional $20,626.15 in funds not declared in a previous filing.
Suspected QAnon ringleader Ron Watkins, who is running for Congress in Arizona, has been asked by the Federal Election Commission to clarify the source of over $20,000 in campaign funds that the commission says was not previously declared.
According to an FEC letter sent to Watkins dated March 28, the commission is taking issue with an amendment to Watkins' year-end campaign finance report. The FEC noted that Watkins had filed an amended report disclosing additional receipts totaling $20,626.15 — close to 40% of his campaign funds, which now total $51,214.
Watkins is widely believed to be the individual who seeded the QAnon conspiracy theory. He is currently running for a congressional seat in Arizona and has announced plans to "double down with God as my compass to take this fight to the swamp of Washington DC."
Well, why not......
Arizona needs more of this.
