- Shane Vaughn, a self-described constitutionalist and co-founder of First Harvest Ministries in Waveland, recorded a seven-minute video claiming that state legislatures could refuse to certify Joe Biden’s win and send the election to the House of Representatives, reported Religion News Service.
- The video was shared so widely that USA Today gave it a fact check, saying his claims lacked context and failed to mention the steps necessary to throw the election to the House, and Vaughn followed up with additional videos.
- But the video’s popularity also dredged up his 2010 arrest for insurance and bank fraud in Louisiana, for which he served three years in prison. “[The past] haunts me like a black dog,” he told RNS. “When I saw that video going viral, my heart sank. If I was planning on going viral, I would have gotten a nicer setup and fixed my hair.”
