Media Matters reports:
Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin, who is running for governor, announced that she is appearing with Stew Peters for a political rally next month.
Peters is a white nationalist who has said that he supports Russian President Vladimir Putin, who, he claims, is “more honest than anyone in our government”; has claimed that Russia is “the only country that’s not under the thumb of the criminal banking cabal”; has popularized the conspiracy theory that COVID-19 is actually a synthetic form of snake venom; and has repeatedly called for Dr. Anthony Fauci to be executed.
Peters is behind the recently released COVID-19 conspiracy theory film Watch the Water which, as PolitiFact summarized, “ridiculously claims that the coronavirus is not a virus, but a synthetic version of snake venom that evil forces are spreading through remdesivir, the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines and drinking water to ‘make you a hybrid of Satan.’”
Read the full article. McGeachin is endorsed by Trump.

I look forward to the spirited conversation about the future of @IdahoGOP in the upcoming gubernatorial primary. Also, isn’t this the owner of the disinfecting cubes company, Don Ahern, introducing Janice in IF? #idpol pic.twitter.com/qamje5B4E7
