Jacob Wohl, born December 12, 1997, is a Jewish-American political pundit and Sunglass Hut employee, best known for essentially jumping in front of buses, for 15 minutes of national fame. By the time he was 20, he managed to get banned for life by the National Futures Association, for defrauding people by taking their money and transferring it to his mother's account. After becoming an ardent Trump supporter, he came to social media prominence for his constant tweets about "hipster coffee shops" where he claimed liberals were muttering about looking to switch sides. Of course, his biggest moment under the Sun came when he and Jack Burkman attempted to bribe women to claim that Robert Mueller raped them. He attempted to repeat his Mueller antics against Pete Buttigieg, using the gay angle, to no avail once more.

He's now banned from social media platforms - namely Twitter - and is facing criminal charges, but he's still a golden ever-lactating lolcow, with new content on a regular basis.

Hedge Funds

In 2014, when little Jacob was 17, he founded Wohl Capital Investment Group, NeX Capital Management, and Montgomery Assets, Inc., prompting him to introduce himself as the "Wohl of Wall Street". I'm not making that up. He attempted to start his own Playboy Bunny/Corey's Angels variant called the "Wohl Girls", even registering wohlgirls.com, but according to Wayback Machine the brand never got on its feet. Instead, he began his practice of Copy-Pasting images of people without their permission, to tell a narrative.

On top of wohlsgirls.com, Jacob also is the proud owner of http://buyaslut.com and http://buyabadbitch.com.

In 2016, just as the election was kicking into high gear, the National Futures Association had received several complaints, including from a David Diedrich, about mismanagement of investors' funds. With a few simple Google searches, they discovered that Jacob had been acting as a manager before getting registered with them. Also, with Jacob claiming that he had ten years of investment background, he would have been in 2nd grade when he started. So, after having secured some compelling evidence, some NFA agents drove to Jacob's house - twice - where the kid and his brother were seen hiding and pretending to not be there, while filming them with their phones. They then drove to several listed addresses, which included the closed-down La Sierra University's Business School, as well as a random-ass house where the people had never heard of Jacob. His father threatened the agents over the phone shortly after, which didn't help what was supposed to be a routine investigation. (Source)

After this had begun, Jacob appeared in an article by ValueWalk, where he talked about how out-of-control the NFA had gotten and how abnormal it was for them to attempt to address security fraud in person. But, most of all, he wanted to point out that he had paid Instagram models to escort him around.

SPOILER ALERT: Jacob was banned from trading for life on March 2, 2017.

Hipster Coffee Shops

Throughout 2018, Jacob started a trend of posting on Twitter about going to "hipster coffee shops", where obvious liberals - skinny jeans, beanies and E-cigarettes - talked about how great they had discovered Trump to really be.

...In a feature run by USA Today, Jacob revealed he made all of it up.

Surefire Intelligence - "where on the doll did the Mueller touch you?"

With the midterm elections looming, Jacob's next scheme was to found the private security firm Surefire Intelligence. Jacob created a number of fake LinkedIn accounts for employees, including Tel Aviv Station Chief Talia Yaniv (supermodel Bar Rafaeli), private investigator Mark Teller (supermodel Nick Hopper), Donald Treehorn (Nick Hopper-- again), finance investigator Simon Frick (Academy Award-winning Christoph Waltz) and managing partner Matthew Cohen (verified exceptional individual Jacob Wohl). The company line was set to Jacob's mother.

Jacob advertised Surefire on Craigslist, which prompted one poor sap to ask for help with recovering her stolen car. Going by Matthew Cohen, Jacob accepted the job, pocketed the $1,200 advance and never communicated with the client again. Another client of Surefire's was Carolyne Cass - an exceptional, narcissistic brat in her mid-30s who destroyed her trust fund and had to resort to stripping - who offered $2,000 for assistance recovering stolen money. Instead, Jac-- I meant, Matthew, pursued a relationship and strictly using his alias, slept with her over the course of six months. In October of 2018, he asked Cass if she would sign an affidavit swearing that Mueller had raped her in New York eight years prior, using the story of her getting raped by a fraudulent investigator eerily similar to Little Jacob. Cass initially agreed, but upon seeing that Matthew was actually Jacob Wohl, mere hours before the press conference, she bailed, so Jacob and his attorney, Jack Burkman, forged her signature on the aforementioned affidavit.

He tried to claim that Cass was exclusively a victim and nothing more. Unfortunately, anyone with a brain was able to reverse Google search it and find that it was an older picture of Jacob posing with his girlfriend. After plowing a few more times, he dumped her over her age.

Vermont Law School professor Jessica Taub reported to the FBI that Surefire contacted her, requesting that she allege that Mueller raped her. A woman called Lorraine Parsons contacted a number of media outlets, stating that Jacob and Jack had tried bribing her with $20,000, if she signed an affidavit Mueller raped her while working in the same community as him. With the scheme blowing up in Jacob and Jack's faces, their next tactic was to claim that Mueller was behind everything and that Lorraine Parsons didn't exist. Additionally, Jacob denied that he had any connection with Surefire.

That is, until Jacob and Jack held this infamous press conference on November 1, holding an affidavit with Carolyne Cass' forged signature...
"Are you both prepared for federal prison?"

Of all the days he picked out of a hat for being the one that Mueller raped a woman, it happened to be when Mueller was reporting for jury duty. Jacob was sure to proclaim that it's nobody's business whether or not he dates Instagram models. Nobody was asking.

Twitter Ban

On February 26, 2019, USA Today ran an article on Jacob. He admitted to not only pulling the "hipster coffee shops" claims out of his ass, but attempting to spread disinformation through social media - particularly Twitter - in the hopes of influencing the 2020 presidential election. Twitter immediately perma-banned his ass. It's usually not a good idea to declare a plot before you've even begun.

"I was just threatened by Matthew Cohen!"

Jacob and fellow troll, Laura Loomer, traveled to terrifying Minneapolis in March 2019. Wearing bulletproof vests, (so you know it's super scary), they were on their way to find out if Congresswoman Ilhan Omar had married her own brother, when a well-dressed diversity coordinator @Drakehomes612 threatened them with pre-made lines.

“I hope you fuckin know that if bump into you in Dinkytown or anywhere else in my city I’m going to shoot you and shit on your fucking bodies. Get the fuck out of my city you piece of shit. Now.”
When investigative journalists looked into "Drake Holmes", (misspelling his own handle, of course), it was discovered that it was fake; Jacob had falsified a police report. The picture that was used was of Aaron Delgado, who is a Minneapolis local and mortgage specialist. Naturally, Dellgado's none too pleased, so it took only a week for him to file a lawsuit. The best part? Fellow lolcow and ambulance chaser Michael Avenatti is representing Delgado. Though, I think his plate will be full for the next... 20-30 years.

Also, as of April 2019, when The Young Turks filed for a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request about Jacob, it was denied, on the basis of it being an active investigation. He's not out of hot water with the FBI, after the Mueller stunt he pulled.

Buttigieg rape operation: "Our coveted seal of approval!"

Half a year after Jacob and Jack's disastrous attempt to frame Mueller for raping Jacob's now-ex, Carolyne Cass, they tried pulling the same stunt on gay Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg... but with even worse results. Their new scheme was to entice a young, gay Republican into saying that Buttigieg sodomized him against his will.

The first candidate was set up with a meeting with a Bill (Jacob) and Matt Teller (Jack) of "Potomac Intelligence". This unidentified young man recorded a portion of the conversation, in which Jacob described Buttigieg as a rising threat to Trump who needed to be dealt with. Hafiz Malik, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineer at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, concluded with certainty that the recording was authentic and that Jacob was indeed the one going by the name of Bill. (Source)

The next and final candidate was Hunter Kelly, a dumb-shit Michigan gayboy-fanboy of Jacob's who agreed to help Jacob bring down Buttigieg, on the pretense that the operation was directed by Trump. Kelly was promptly flown out to Baltimore in late April and was driven to Jack's house in Arlington, where he was presented with a prepared statement that would describe how Buttigieg raped him. Jacob told him to simply sleep on it. The next morning, however, Kelly awoke to find Jacob dressed up - "I can’t do a Monday if I'm not in a suit" - as well as pre-prepared Medium and Twitter accounts that detailed the rape. Jacob and Jack told Kelly that he would not be allowed to bow out or leave the residence and that he would give a press conference before long. Kelly managed to pretend to nap in his room, while alerting his family to the situation. When they arrived, he bolted out of the house, before Jacob and Jack could react. (Source)

Even without their star witness, Jacob and Jack went ahead with a sham press conference in the driveway, hosting reporters, donuts and garbage trucks in full operation.


Criminal Charges

Jacob's ghosts from his past as a con artist hedge fund manager returned with a vengeance. It was revealed that in June 2016, Jacob and his little partner Matthew Johnson screwed a client out of their life's savings of $75,000. The client reported the crime to the police, then committed suicide shortly after. An investigator subsequently organized a sting operation, by presenting himself as a real estate agent asking Jacob to invest in a security with $100,000. Jacob attempted to illegally sell the security, by not registering it or filing for exemption. As such, it was Jacob doing the only thing he knows how to do: conning people. (Source)

On September 4, 2019, Jacob was charged with felony for selling securities without registration. He avoided arrest by appearing in court and being released on his own recognizance. After appearing in court on October 24 and getting charged with false state security, his trial is set to resume on December 9.

This is the kind of guy that will try anything to become rich and famous and fail every single time - but that, if by pure dumb luck he succeeded, would still manage to lose everything in less than a year because he's such a fucking lolcow. Nice thread, looking forward to what's next!

Honestly, I have a hard time believing he hasn't been put in jail yet, as the video says, and wouldn't be surprised at all if it happened tomorrow.

Deadspin published an article yesterday about a press conference they attended yesterday, where Jacob and Jack revealed the findings of an extensive 5-week investigation.

With only two people having showed up, Jacob claimed to have uncovered the biggest conspiracy ever about the NCAA, with Adidas offering money and goods to college athletes and their families if they play for them. Jacob literally pulled a fucking curtain away from a TV screen, where he revealed his sole witness, one-time Dallas Cowboy benchwarmer Lewis Neal, who said that the University of Tennessee offered him a "nothing crazy" amount of money.

Like a co-host of paid programming, Jacob exclaimed, "This is a bombshell! This is the first I’ve heard of this!”

Seriously, five weeks? They spent five weeks digging and all they could come up with was a failed athlete rambling about the Vols - not Adidas - offering him money to play for them?

Far-Right Smear Merchants Try to Slime Pete Buttigieg with Bogus Sex Assault Claim

The mayor was briefly accused of assaulting a young man. A GOP source says right-wing operatives Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman approached him to make similarly untrue accusations.

Lachlan Markay, Kevin Poulsen, Noah Shachtman 04.29.19 7:56 PM ET

A pair of right-wing provocateurs are being accused of attempting to recruit young Republican men to level false allegations of sexual assault against Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg.

The details of the operatives’ attempt emerged as one man suddenly surfaced with a vague and uncorroborated allegation that Buttigieg had assaulted him. The claim was retracted hours later on a Facebook page appearing to belong to the man.

A Republican source told The Daily Beast that lobbyist Jack Burkman and internet troll Jacob Wohl approached him last week to try to convince him to falsely accuse Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, of engaging him sexually while he was too drunk to consent.

The source who spoke to The Daily Beast said Burkman and Wohl made clear that their goal was to kneecap Buttigieg’s momentum in the 2020 presidential race. The man asked to remain anonymous out of a concern that the resulting publicity might imperil his employment, and because he said Wohl and Burkman have a reputation for vindictiveness.


But the source provided The Daily Beast with a surreptitious audio recording of the meeting, which corroborates his account. In it, Wohl said appears to refer to Buttigieg as a “terminal threat” to President Donald Trump’s reelection next year.

Neither Burkman nor Wohl responded to repeated requests for comment on this story. But after The Daily Beast contacted them last week, traces of the scheme disappeared from the web and social media.

---

On Monday, a separate individual using the name of Hunter Kelly published a post on the site Medium in which he alleged that Buttigieg sexually assaulted him in February. That post was tweeted out by David Wohl, Jacob’s father, and quickly re-written by the site Big League Politics, which is known as a landing ground for right wing conspiracy theories.

741565

https://twitter.com/DavidWohl/status/1122895424522571777 (http://archive.vn/g6wpb)

Kelly’s supposed Medium and Twitter accounts both say they were created this month. His Facebook page includes several posts lauding Trump and criticizing Hillary Clinton. He appears to have responded to Jacob Wohl’s posts on Instagram in the past.

The Daily Beast reached out to Kelly on a cell phone listed to him in the student directory at his Michigan college. Told we were reporting on apparent efforts by Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman to drum up false sexual assault allegations against Buttigieg, Kelly replied, “I was unaware this was happening. But yes it is true.”

Kelly wrote that he did not control the newly-created Medium and Twitter accounts that posted the allegations under his name. When asked if he could verify his identity, he texted the Daily Beast a selfie that matched the photo seen on Medium and on Kelly’s longstanding Facebook accounts.

“Here is a selfie of me, sorry I have been crying,” he wrote. “Today and the promises made didn’t go as planned.”

Kelly declined to provide more details. But two hours later he posted a message to his Facebook timeline headed, “I WAS NOT SEXUALLY ASSAULTED.”

“It's important for everyone to know that I was not sexually assaulted and would never falsely accuse anyone,” he wrote. “To keep it brief for now, I was approached by a political figure to come to DC to discuss political situations from the standpoint of a gay Republican. When I arrived they discussed Peter Buttigieg and started talking about how they would be working a campaign against him.”

“I went to bed and woke up to a fake Twitter @RealHunterKelly and an article that I in no way endorsed or wrote. I have since left and am working on a formal statement to give to everyone including the Buttigieg family.”

Asked about the allegation on Monday, Buttigieg called it made up. “It's not going to throw us,” he said. “Politics can be ugly sometimes but you have to face that when you're in presidential politics.”

---

The man who told The Daily Beast that Wohl and Burkman approached him last week also described himself as a Trump supporter. He said he was connected to them by a friend in Republican politics, whom the duo had allegedly also pitched on the scheme. They met at a restaurant in the Washington area, where, the source said, both Burkman and Wohl introduced themselves using false names. Burkman assumed the alias of Matt Teller, the source said. Wohl, he said, just used the first name Bill.

The source added that he recognized Wohl because of his internet notoriety and decided to record their conversation, convinced that it could prove useful should any investigation be launched into the origins of the anti-Buttigieg scheme. The audio was provided on the condition that it not be published, so as not to reveal its source.

An expert in audio forensics contacted by The Daily Beast then examined the recording and confirmed that Wohl was one of the speakers.

"Our findings are that it is highly likely that one of the voice on the recording is Jacob Wohl's voice," Hafiz Malik, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, told The Daily Beast after analyzing the recording.

Malik and his graduate student compared the surreptitious recording to publicly-available recordings of Wohl speaking. The pair then matched similar words and syllables, comparing the voice prints in each case.

The stealthy recording was noisy—with hums in the lower register, around 60 and 120 hertz. So Malik and his student compared the "high harmonics," and got a match.

---

The pitch by Wohl and Burkman wasn’t detailed, the source said, but it resembled past attempts by the duo to peddle dubious sexual assault allegations against perceived political foes. It would involve the accuser giving a press conference where he would publicly make his accusations about Buttigieg. The source said Wohl and Burkman seemed to want him to figure out many of the details, including a window of time during which he and Buttigieg were both in Washington, when the fabricated offense may have occurred.

When the source expressed reluctance, they assured him the scheme would make him wealthy, famous, and a star in Republican politics. Wohl cited the national recognition given to Christine Blasey Ford after she accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault during his confirmation hearings last year.

Wohl and Burkman described the source’s role as a “catalyst” whose false allegations would prompt actual victims to come forward. They promised that a number of such victims were waiting in the wings.

The goal, Wohl and Burkman stressed, was to hobble Buttigieg’s ascendant campaign, according to the audio of the conversation. The South Bend mayor has rocketed into the top tier of 2020 Democratic contenders to the surprise of many national political observers.

Last Monday, Burkman wrote on Twitter, “2020 is shaping up to be more exciting than 2016. Looking like it will be Trump vs. Mayor Pete! Get the popcorn ready!”

---

The source did not agree to participate in the scheme, but Wohl followed up with a phone call a day or two later to see if he could recommend friends or associates who might be a good fit to play the victim in the hoax.

The phone number he called from was listed on the website of a company called Potomac Intelligence Group, which claimed to be a political and corporate intelligence firm with offices in Virginia and California. Matt Teller, the alias that Burkman used in the meeting, was listed as a Potomac Intelligence employee.

741571


“Teller” also had a LinkedIn page, where he recently penned a post responding to a “blogger” who “wrote a story about Potomac Intelligence alleging that we work with the Saudi Government.”

It doesn’t appear that any such story was ever written.

“While we don't comment on our clients or the operations that we carry out on their behalf,” the LinkedIn post said, “we can say this: We will never apologize for our counter-terrorism practice.”

741574


Minutes after The Daily Beast reached out to Wohl and Burkman, the Potomac Intelligence website was taken down, Teller’s LinkedIn page was deleted, and both of the company’s phone numbers were disconnected.

That website was similar in appearance to that of Surefire Intelligence, a fake company that Wohl set up under the pseudonym Matthew Cohen and used to peddle false sexual assault allegations against Special Counsel Robert Mueller last year. Both sites also were registered through the same anonymous domain registration service, and both used the same webmail provider, Protonmail, for their contact email addresses: surefireintelligence@protonmail.com for the Mueller smear, potomacintelligence@protonmail.com now.

The woman whom Wohl recruited to level those allegations against Mueller later told USA Today that Wohl had “made it up” and duped her into being the face of the allegations. The FBI signaled early this month that there was an active investigation into Surefire Intelligence, such as it is.

Wohl and Burkman have maintained a steady stream of publicity stunts in spite of that scrutiny. In February, at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, they held a “press conference” where they claimed that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) married her own brother to get him U.S. citizenship. In the course of “investigating” those claims, Wohl faked a number of death threats against himself.
More recently, he and Burkman held a press conference where they promised to unveil damning allegations of corruption and bribery in high-profile college athletics programs. The much-hyped event was a dud.
Their attempt to go after Buttigieg doesn’t appear to be going much better. As our source recalled, “I was sitting there thinking: this is the Fyre Festival of political operations.”

On Monday, a separate individual using the name of Hunter Kelly published a post on the site Medium in which he alleged that Buttigieg sexually assaulted him in February. That post was tweeted out by David Wohl, Jacob’s father, and quickly re-written by the site Big League Politics, which is known as a landing ground for right wing conspiracy theories.

Kelly’s supposed Medium and Twitter accounts both say they were created this month. His Facebook page includes several posts lauding Trump and criticizing Hillary Clinton. He appears to have responded to Jacob Wohl’s posts on Instagram in the past.

The Daily Beast reached out to Kelly on a cell phone listed to him in the student directory at his Michigan college. Told we were reporting on apparent efforts by Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman to drum up false sexual assault allegations against Buttigieg, Kelly replied, “I was unaware this was happening. But yes it is true.”

Kelly wrote that he did not control the newly-created Medium and Twitter accounts that posted the allegations under his name. When asked if he could verify his identity, he texted the Daily Beast a selfie that matched the photo seen on Medium and on Kelly’s longstanding Facebook accounts.

“Here is a selfie of me, sorry I have been crying,” he wrote. “Today and the promises made didn’t go as planned.”

Kelly declined to provide more details. But two hours later he posted a message to his Facebook timeline headed, “I WAS NOT SEXUALLY ASSAULTED.”

“It's important for everyone to know that I was not sexually assaulted and would never falsely accuse anyone,” he wrote. “To keep it brief for now, I was approached by a political figure to come to DC to discuss political situations from the standpoint of a gay Republican. When I arrived they discussed Peter Buttigieg and started talking about how they would be working a campaign against him.”

“I went to bed and woke up to a fake Twitter @RealHunterKelly and an article that I in no way endorsed or wrote. I have since left and am working on a formal statement to give to everyone including the Buttigieg family.”

Asked about the allegation on Monday, Buttigieg called it made up. “It's not going to throw us,” he said. “Politics can be ugly sometimes but you have to face that when you're in presidential politics.”

The man who told The Daily Beast that Wohl and Burkman approached him last week also described himself as a Trump supporter. He said he was connected to them by a friend in Republican politics, whom the duo had allegedly also pitched on the scheme. They met at a restaurant in the Washington area, where, the source said, both Burkman and Wohl introduced themselves using false names. Burkman assumed the alias of Matt Teller, the source said. Wohl, he said, just used the first name Bill.

The source added that he recognized Wohl because of his internet notoriety and decided to record their conversation, convinced that it could prove useful should any investigation be launched into the origins of the anti-Buttigieg scheme. The audio was provided on the condition that it not be published, so as not to reveal its source.

An expert in audio forensics contacted by The Daily Beast then examined the recording and confirmed that Wohl was one of the speakers.

"Our findings are that it is highly likely that one of the voice on the recording is Jacob Wohl's voice," Hafiz Malik, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, told The Daily Beast after analyzing the recording.

Malik and his graduate student compared the surreptitious recording to publicly-available recordings of Wohl speaking. The pair then matched similar words and syllables, comparing the voice prints in each case.

The stealthy recording was noisy—with hums in the lower register, around 60 and 120 hertz. So Malik and his student compared the "high harmonics," and got a match.

The pitch by Wohl and Burkman wasn’t detailed, the source said, but it resembled past attempts by the duo to peddle dubious sexual assault allegations against perceived political foes. It would involve the accuser giving a press conference where he would publicly make his accusations about Buttigieg. The source said Wohl and Burkman seemed to want him to figure out many of the details, including a window of time during which he and Buttigieg were both in Washington, when the fabricated offense may have occurred.

When the source expressed reluctance, they assured him the scheme would make him wealthy, famous, and a star in Republican politics. Wohl cited the national recognition given to Christine Blasey Ford after she accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault during his confirmation hearings last year.

Wohl and Burkman described the source’s role as a “catalyst” whose false allegations would prompt actual victims to come forward. They promised that a number of such victims were waiting in the wings.

The goal, Wohl and Burkman stressed, was to hobble Buttigieg’s ascendant campaign, according to the audio of the conversation. The South Bend mayor has rocketed into the top tier of 2020 Democratic contenders to the surprise of many national political observers.

Last Monday, Burkman wrote on Twitter, “2020 is shaping up to be more exciting than 2016. Looking like it will be Trump vs. Mayor Pete! Get the popcorn ready!”

The source did not agree to participate in the scheme, but Wohl followed up with a phone call a day or two later to see if he could recommend friends or associates who might be a good fit to play the victim in the hoax.

The phone number he called from was listed on the website of a company called Potomac Intelligence Group, which claimed to be a political and corporate intelligence firm with offices in Virginia and California. Matt Teller, the alias that Burkman used in the meeting, was listed as a Potomac Intelligence employee.

“Teller” also had a LinkedIn page, where he recently penned a post responding to a “blogger” who “wrote a story about Potomac Intelligence alleging that we work with the Saudi Government.”

It doesn’t appear that any such story was ever written.

“While we don't comment on our clients or the operations that we carry out on their behalf,” the LinkedIn post said, “we can say this: We will never apologize for our counter-terrorism practice.”

Minutes after The Daily Beast reached out to Wohl and Burkman, the Potomac Intelligence website was taken down, Teller’s LinkedIn page was deleted, and both of the company’s phone numbers were disconnected.

That website was similar in appearance to that of Surefire Intelligence, a fake company that Wohl set up under the pseudonym Matthew Cohen and used to peddle false sexual assault allegations against Special Counsel Robert Mueller last year. Both sites also were registered through the same anonymous domain registration service, and both used the same webmail provider, Protonmail, for their contact email addresses: surefireintelligence@protonmail.com for the Mueller smear, potomacintelligence@protonmail.com now.

The woman whom Wohl recruited to level those allegations against Mueller later told USA Today that Wohl had “made it up” and duped her into being the face of the allegations. The FBI signaled early this month that there was an active investigation into Surefire Intelligence, such as it is.

Wohl and Burkman have maintained a steady stream of publicity stunts in spite of that scrutiny. In February, at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, they held a “press conference” where they claimed that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) married her own brother to get him U.S. citizenship. In the course of “investigating” those claims, Wohl faked a number of death threats against himself.
More recently, he and Burkman held a press conference where they promised to unveil damning allegations of corruption and bribery in high-profile college athletics programs. The much-hyped event was a dud.
Their attempt to go after Buttigieg doesn’t appear to be going much better. As our source recalled, “I was sitting there thinking: this is the Fyre Festival of political operations.”

Holy shit, I found out about this one by seeing it at the top page of Google News. I wouldn't say this is Jacob's most reckless and disastrous stunt, but it's up there. Who'd have thought "hipster coffee shops" would lead to this?

How Jacob and Jack are not in prison already is beyond me.
