The Arizona Mirror caught state Rep. Mark Finchem spreading conspiracy theories about Cesar Sayoc, the suspected MAGABomber arrested by authorities on Friday.
“Rep. Mark Finchem, R-Oro Valley, has retweeted several tweets from prominent conservative Twitter personalities, including former porn star Jenna Jameson, asserting that the bombs are fake and that liberals are masterminding a plot to frame conservatives,” the Mirror reported.
“Another of Finchem’s retweets asserted the bombs couldn’t be real because people took pictures of them,” they noted.
The Mirror took screen shots of the retweets, which have since been deleted by the conservative lawmaker.
They also noted Rep. Finchem is “likely to be re-elected” in the midterm elections.
This is not Finchem’s first brush with controversy.
“Finchem, meanwhile, is a member of the Oath Keepers, a national anti-government, right-wing militia founded in 2009 that regularly traffics in conspiracy theories, including a recent one alleging that there was a child-sex ring being operated near Tucson,” the Mirror reported last week.
