Texas GOP Fires “Ex-Gay Drag Queen” Over Videos Showing Him At Capitol Riot And At “Pizzagate” Protest

The Texas Tribune reports:

The Republican Party of Texas has fired a staffer after learning about a series of social media posts he made, including one that places him in a crowd of people steps outside the U.S. Capitol last month on the same day that a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the building.

The staffer, field organizer Kevin Whitt, has also published video of himself arguing with an employee of a Washington, D.C., pizzeria over the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory and has defended the Proud Boys, the far-right nationalist group.

Whitt was hired Nov. 30, 2020, as a field organizer. He is best known as an activist who talks about his experience leaving behind his life as a drag queen to become deeply religious and advocate on social conservative issues.

Whitt, who claims to be an ex-transgender prostitute, posted an Instagram video in which he can be heard speaking as the mob rushed the Capitol doors.

In another video, he’s heard screaming about pedophilia to a worker at Washington DC’s Comet Ping Pong Pizza.

Whitt says he “100% believes Pizzagate is real” but deleted both videos after being contacted by the Texas Tribune.

As you can see in the clip below, Whitt is part of the traveling “ex-gay” March For Freedom.
