Russian Election Meddlers Set Up Fake Hotline For GAY Youth

Two reports released yesterday by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence describe how Russian election meddling targeted LGBTQ voters during the 2016 elections in order to help Donald Trump win, with tactics that included setting up hotlines for Christian masturbators and LGBTQ youth, reports LGBTQ Nation.

“It is evident that the campaigns sought to demobilize African Americans, LGBT, and liberal voters,” one of the reports says.

Two mentioned in the report were a “support” hotline for LGBTQ youth and one for Christian masturbation addicts. The hotlines may have been set up to collect personal information to use later, the report says.
