The armed Virginia men busted near Philadelphia’s vote-counting site allegedly believed “fake ballots” were being counted there. “According to our information at this very early stage of investigation, it appears these individuals were operating under the belief that ‘fake ballots’ are being counted at the Convention Center—a completely unsupported claim—and that belief may have been what drew their attention to Philadelphia,” Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Jane Roh told CNN. QAnon conspiracy theorist Antonio Lamotta, 61, and Joshua Macias, 42, the co-founder of “Vets for Trump,” were arrested Thursday after their silver Hummer was found near convention center. Both men were armed but did not have a license to carry firearms in Philadelphia. CBS Philly reports that the judge at Friday’s court hearing set bail for each suspect at $750,000. “At this time we don’t have indications that the story is bigger than these two individuals,” District Attorney Larry Krasner said.
Editor’s Note: This cheat previously included an inaccurate report from CBS Philly stating that the armed men were trying to deliver a truck full of “fake ballots.”
