A California State Senator Introduced a Bill Pushing LGBTQ Equality—and a QAnon Mob Came for Him

August 7, 2020

Scott Wiener is used to being targeted for his legislation. The California State Senator represents San Francisco, and has long championed the kind of progressive reforms that have attracted the ire of right-wing culture warriors and their online trolling. Over the past few days, the harassment Sen. Wiener has endured has gotten much worse. QAnon troll accounts have sicced their rabid followers on him, latching on to a bill he’s introduced to reform California’s sex offender registry. - Mother Jones, August 6th, 2020
