Arizona Republican congressional candidate Chuck Wooten spoke last week with Erik Rush, an insane conspiracy theorist who wants President Obama tried and killed for treason, about the humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied minors crossing the border.
Wooten, who is running for the GOP nomination to challenge Democratic congressman Ron Barber, told Rush that the Obama administration is behind a “conspiracy” to increase the immigration rate.
He cited a debunked right-wing myth about a Homeland Security procurement contract as proof that the “federal government knew or is maybe even behind” the border crossings as part of a plot to “intentionally overwhelm our system.”
Later, Wooten said he was just asking the question about whether the Obama administration is helping immigrants “flood into the country” in order to “keep the Senate” just ahead of the midterm elections: “They’re going to be integrated into society with the goal of bringing their families here because they are poor little children who need their parents so bring their family of twenty over here.”
“There is a school of thought that will say, maybe some of this is intentional. There could be something to it, I don’t know, but he knows that keeping the Senate — that is slipping away,” he said. “Why in the world would all of these things go on at the same time? I don’t know, it just kind of points that way to me.”
“I don’t believe in coincidence.”
