Earlier today, The Palmieri Report reported on the Tiki torch hoax in Virginia.
At the time we exposed it was Democrat staffers that were pictured.
Now, we have this.
The Lincoln Project, a Pro-Dem RINO group, took responsibility for the hoax.
The people dressed as alt-right Charlottesville-style supporters of the Republican candidate for Virginia governor have been revealed to be Democrat operatives engaged in a hoax. Anti-Republican Party group, @ProjectLincoln, has claimed responsibility. https://t.co/GAcLepAt5D

The Lincoln Project has claimed responsibility for staging the fake white supremacists with tiki torches outside Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin’s campaign bus.
A statement from the Lincoln Project read that their intention was to link Youngkin to Trump, and remind voters about the Charlottesville protest in 2017 during which a young woman was killed when she was hit with a car.
Here is their post taking responsibility for it:
“Glenn Youngkin has said: ‘President Trump represents so much of why I am running.’ Youngkin proves it every day by trying to divide Virginians using racial code words like Critical Race Theory and supporting a ban on teaching the works of America’s only Black Nobel laureate.
“The Lincoln Project has run advertisements highlighting the hate unleashed in Charlottesville as well as Glenn Youngkin’s continued failure to denounce Donald Trump’s ‘very fine people on both sides.’ We will continue to draw this contrast in broadcast videos, on our social media platforms, and at Youngkin rallies.
“Today’s demonstration was our way of reminding Virginians what happened in Charlottesville four years ago, the Republican Party’s embrace of those values, and Glenn Youngkin’s failure to condemn it.
“The Youngkin campaign is enraged by our reminder of Charlottesville for one simple reason: Glenn Youngkin wants Virginians to forget that he is Donald Trump’s candidate.
“We will continue to hold Glenn Youngkin accountable. If he will denounce Trump’s assertion that the Charlottesville rioters possessed ‘very fine’ qualities, we’ll withdraw the tiki torches. Until then, we’ll be back.
Earlier in the day they retweeted this making it seem like this was a real thing:
They donated $264,000 to Dem candidate Terry McAuliffe’s campaign.
With Project Lincoln taking one for the team by claiming they came up with the #TikiGate stunt, the narrative gets to remain "Republicans bad" with no repercussions to the VA Democrats who planned and orchestrated the failed enterprise on behalf of Terry McAuliffe.
