With MAGA Republicans seeing groomers behind every tree and at every school and pizza joint, did they ever once consider that the call was coming from inside their house:
“Stop the Steal” rally organizer Ali Alexander admitted to sending “inappropriate messages” as young men are going on the record to accuse him of asking them for nudes while they were minors.
The far-right MAGA activist posted a statement recently where he spoke broadly about his behavior and how he has been “battling with same-sex attraction.” Alexander has identified as bisexual in the past.
Here is a statement from Alexander:
I apologize for any inappropriate messages sent over the years. Forgive me. While having repented before God and confess at Church, I want my supporters and those involved to hear my apology today.
When I’ve flirted or others have flirted with me, I’ve flexed my credentials or dropped corny pick up lines. Other times, I’ve been careless and should’ve qualified those coming up to me’s identities during flirtatious banter at the start.
Nothing unlawful has occurred. Seeing false claims alongside real messages is a deceptive technique. Some have retracted and other individuals say were deceptively edited which is why I waited. All of this is designed by a Literal Predator to take advantage of admitted sins and hurt my allies. One recent individual attacked me (before recanting parts) to hide their own sexual identity struggles. I won’t attack back because these fights benefit no one’s redemption. Others have been fake accusers or literal honeypots eager to frame me.
Obviously, soliciting minors is illegal. He admits that there were indeed “real” messages, as well as deceptively edited ones. Unfortunately for him, the deceptively edited messages do not negate the “real” ones.
The Daily Beast on Monday published a deep dive into the controversy that alleges Alexander received naked pictures from one teenager and sought “eggplant” pics from another. Alexander did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Additionally, read the full report and you can see how MAGAmen Nick Fuentes and Milo Yiannopoulos are also tangled up in this. Marjorie Taylor Green (who employed Yiannopoulos) and demanded that the FBI be defunded after the lawful search of Mar-a-Lago, is now calling on the agency to investigate the allegations against Alexander…
