Race For Utah County Attorney Goes Off The Rails With Claims Of ‘Cannibalism’ And ‘Ritualistic Sex Abuse’

The QAnon crazy sauce has been uncorked and is being applied liberally as part of a race for county attorney in the state of Utah, leading to accusations of cannibalism and sexual abuse of children.

According to KUTV, Utah County Attorney incumbent David Leavitt is facing all sorts of allegations from country sheriff Mike Smith:

Leavitt called a press conference Wednesday morning after the Utah County Sheriff’s Office told the media the night prior that it is investigating a child sex abuse ring that operated in Utah, Juab, and Sanpete counties between 1990 and 2010.

At the press conference, Leavitt announced that he and his wife were subjects of a child sex abuse investigation approximately 10 years ago, but claimed those allegations were totally untrue.

Leavitt laid out why he had called the presser:

“I learned that my wife and I were part of those allegations, allegedly that we were guilty of cannibalizing young children, and murdering young children.”

He then angrily added:

“To have [my wife’s] reputation, her professional character and everything about her life’s work called into question brought into question by a few cheap political opportunists offends me to the depth of my being. It does nothing but to demean the integrity of me, my wife, and 15 other members of this community who had absolutely nothing to do with a discredited case from 15 years ago.”

Smith fired back at Leavitt by suggesting that the accusations went beyond what Leavitt had referenced:

“Several times, Mr. Leavitt named himself and mentioned cannibalism and murder. This investigation is about child sex abuse. I take exception to any victim coming forward and being categorized as ‘tragically mentally ill’. How dare you. These are victims of crimes who have mustered the courage to come forward and this is what you call them? Mentally ill. How dare you.”

Smith says the FBI is also involved in the investigation of Leavitt but refused to give any proof of that allegation.
