Americans are familiar with the sight of “QAnon Shaman.” This man, whose real name is Jacob Chansley, because the face of Democrat’s J6 narrative.
The man had been convicted of trespassing. But footage revealed by Tucker Carlson proved he had been escorted through the Capitol Building.
The Navy veteran served 27 months of a 41-month sentence and then was released. Now, he’s back. And his plans will surely have Democrats shocked.
From The Post Millennial:
The man who has been called the “QAnon Shaman” after walking through Congress on January 6, 2021 wearing a horned, fur hat has announced his plan to run for Congress. He will be making that bid in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District.
The 35-year-old filed a statement of intent on Thursday that he intends to run on the Libertarian Party ticket, per the Daily Mail. This comes after the Republican who has held the seat since 2018, Debbie Lesko, said that she will not be on the ballot in 2024. She is 64.
Republican Debbie Lesko announced she is not running for Arizona’s 8th Congressional District in 2024. This leaves the seat vacant for what will probably be a number of candidates, Republicans and Democrats alike.
But Jacob Chansley, the one-time “Qanon Shaman” filed paperwork to run for the seat as a Libertarian.
It’s worth noting that the man, who was an outspoken Trump supporter, plans to run as a third-party candidate. Libertarians share many values with Republicans but differ on some key points, including the legalization of various recreational drugs.
Chansley became a symbol for the events of January 6. Democrats used his image to evoke the idea that Trump supporters were “reckless insurrectionists” who sought to overthrow the government. Prosecutors seemed to suggest Chansley was a dangerous, perhaps violent person.
His lawyers maintained he was a “gentle and intelligent young man.” Chansley is a U.S. Navy veteran. That might win over voters, who are eager to support former servicemembers for Congress.
As of this writing, it is unknown which candidates he will be up against. Chansley will need to jump through a variety of hurdles before he ends up on the November ballot. His chances of winning, of course, nobody can guess now.
- The former “Qanon Shaman” filed paperwork to run for Congress.
- Jacob Chansley is running for Arizona’s vacant 8th District.
- Democrats had used Chansley’s image to spread their narrative of January 6th.
