What happens when Qanon's most deranged conspiracies make their way into congress? There are more Qanon candidates in office today than a year ago and their political power is increasing. Media Matters has identified 19 congressional candidates running in 2022 who have expressed some level of support for the QAnon conspiracy theory.
This includes: Five candidates from Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and Ohio each have two, and California, Maryland, New Jersey, Oregon, Texas, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Colorado each have one. And how can they believe such weird stuff?
Angelo Carusone joins Thom Hartmann to discuss the continued rise of Qanon. Angelo Carusone is President/CEO Media Matters For America.
