Two Republican legislators used their social media accounts to promote the radical QAnon conspiracy movement over the Independence Day weekend.
On Saturday, Sen. Vince Leach, R-Tucson, posted a cartoon from political cartoonist Ben Garrison depicting President Donald Trump, his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and a figure whose head is a large Q marching and preparing to step on miniature figures labeled as globalists, Marxists and traitors.
That same day, Rep. Jay Lawrence, R-Scottsdale, posted a message on his Twitter and Facebook accounts declaring, “Qanon Patriotic Americans who support President Trump.”
Lawrence has since posted an apology on Facebook, saying he knew “practically nothing” about the movement and had seen comments that led him to believe its members were being attacked simply for supporting Trump.
