Hawaii GOP Vice Chair of Communications Edwin Boyette resigned on Sunday night after using the state Republican Party’s Twitter account to prop up followers up the QAnon conspiracy theory.
Hawaii News Now reports: “In his statement, he wrote ‘the discussion of the Q-Conspiracy was an error of judgement.’ The messages on the Hawaii Republican Party’s Twitter account said followers of QAnon don’t deserve mockery and that they were ‘largely motivated by a sincere and deep love for America.’ The tweets also called QAnon believers ‘patriots,’ while other tweets pointed blame toward the media for creating a ‘hyperbolic’ narrative.
