The Daily Beast reports:
Serial MAGA fraudster Jack Burkman has embarked on a new political venture: a website styled after celebrity gossip outlet TMZ—right down to the trademarked logo—that is smearing Democratic Reps. Conor Lamb and Eric Swalwell.
Flyers posted Thursday around Capitol Hill and the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C., offer a $10,000 reward for information about an unsubstantiated affair between Swalwell and Lamb’s wife.
While the TMZ-DC operator appears to have attempted several steps to obscure their identity, metadata pulled from the homepage bears direct links to Burkman. Swalwell dismissed the attempted smear as “pathetic” and “baseless.”
Read the full article. There’s much more, including TMZ’s threat of legal action. Yet another fail from MAGA world’s dumbest scammers with help from Pizzagate cultist Jack Posobiec, who has since deleted his tweet. Burkman and Jacob Wohl are facing unrelated criminal charges in multiple states.
SCOOP: Jacob Wohl’s partner in fraud Jack Burkman launched a new fake TMZ website to smear Eric Swalwell & Conor Lamb. He tried to cover his tracks but made several unforced errors. Now TMZ wants it gone. Me @thedailybeast, and @arawnsley with the assisthttps://t.co/h8rvVA7YSc
