“Jacob Chansley, the Capitol rioter who came to be known as the ‘QAnon Shaman’ appears to have filed paperwork indicating an interest in running for Congress in Arizona’s 8th district in 2024. The Arizona Republic reported that a candidate statement of interest was signed by Jacob Angeli-Chansley and was filed with the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office Thursday, indicating he would seek to run as a [L]ibertarian. He has also been known to go by Jacob Angeli. Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz.), who currently represents the district, announced last month that she won’t seek reelection. Chansley, 35, gained notoriety for his horned fur hat, bare chest and face paint that made him one of the more recognizable Capitol rioters on Jan. 6.” (11/12/23)
