Michigan GOP Rep. Daire Rendon attended a rally outside the state Capitol this Tuesday wearing a button featuring the American flag with a gold "Q" over it, The Detroit News reports.

When asked if the button was related to the QAnon conspiracy theory cult, Rendon replied that it's just a "flag with a Q on it."

"The 'Q' is the highest level of security in the federal government. ... That's what it is," she claimed.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, "Q level clearance" is a top-secret clearance level within the U.S. Department of Energy.

Speaking to The Detroit News, State Rep. Mari Manoogian (D) says Rendon has been seen wearing the pin more than once.

"The first time I saw her wearing it on the floor of the House I was shocked," Manoogian tweeted.

During her speech at the rally, which was organized by supporters of another audit of Michigan's 2020 election, Rendon said more people need to pay attention to "evidence" that the 2020 election was stolen.

As The Detroit News points out, Rendon in December was one of two GOP members of the Michigan House who were plaintiffs in an unsuccessful federal lawsuit that aimed to require state legislatures to certify the results of presidential elections.
