The Washington Post reports:
Two days after the tumultuous 2020 election, as President Donald Trump railed that his victory had been stolen, a small group of men dressed in yellow-and-black Proud Boys shirts appeared with dozens of other Trump supporters to protest the counting of ballots at Nevada’s biggest voting center.
Woodrow Johnston, the vice president of McShane LLC, a consultancy that had been hired by the party to investigate electoral fraud, wrote on Nov. 4 to Sarah Ashton-Cirillo in a Facebook Messenger chat, telling her that Rep. Paul A. Gosar (R-Ariz.), one of his firm’s clients, was preparing a “Brooks Brothers Riot” in Arizona.
That was a reference to the Republican protests that disrupted vote counting in Florida after the 2000 presidential election. “We might need to do the same here in Nevada,” Johnston wrote. “Which means we need to get the Proud Boys out.”
Read the full article. Gosar’s spokesman claims there was no communication with Johnston about any “riot.” Yeah.
