She goes by the name Terpsichore Maras-Lindeman, but online she’s known simply as Tore Says, and she’s been patiently building a network of QAnon affiliated groups in all 50 states to punish Democrats for winning the 2020 election, ominously declaring that “retribution” is coming for those who helped make Donald Trump a failed, one-term president.
According to VICE News, Maras-Lindeman has built her following on the game-streaming platform Twitch, and some of the things she tells those followers is so crazy that it’s enough to make Trump himself blanch:
“Maras-Lindeman is part of a growing ecosystem of grifters and hucksters who are leveraging the widespread belief that Trump’s election loss was somehow orchestrated by shadowy figures and companies tied to the Democrats. This so-called ‘Big Lie’ has taken hold within the mainstream Republican Party, and fringe figures like Maras-Lindeman have succeeded in carving out a niche that’s proving to be highly lucrative.”
Just how good is Maras-Lindeman at separating the gullible from their hard-earned money? She convinced her followers to donate $87,400 in a crowdfunding campaign just so she could go out and buy herself a Tesla.
The move to overturn the 2020 election, Maras-Lindeman insists, will begin in the state of Ohio:
“’Ohio’s gonna be lit, next week we’re gonna be setting some serious fires,’ she told viewers on her Twitch channel, ToreSays, on Jan. 29. Then, she issued a warning to the lawmakers: ‘You want a great reset? Here it is. We’re gonna do it our way, and that’s by eliminating you.'”
“The plan was relatively simple: Maras-Lindeman claimed that vote-counting equipment used in states across the country were not properly certified and that as a result, all elected officials—both Democrat and Republican—were illegitimate. This opens the door for anyone to file what’s known as a ‘quo warranto’ lawsuit, an arcane legal action that requires a person to show by what warrant an office or franchise is held, claimed, or exercised.”
All if this will supposedly culminate before the Ohio Supreme Court, where the lawsuits will be heard and “illegally elected” officials will be removed from office and replaced with other QAnon zealots who believe the world governments are controlled by Satanic, flesh-eating pedophiles who have sworn to destroy the world as we know it for their own personal benefit.
Oh, and there’s also an attempt by Maras-Lindeman and others like her to try and find personal information about elected officials — including phone numbers and email addresses — so they can be endlessly harassed by the QAnon faithful who share such facts on Telegram.
Has Maras-Lindeman delivered on any of her promises? Not a one. But that hasn’t kept her from continuing to fleece her followers every chance she gets, even though she’s been busted doing so in the past:
“In 2018, a judge in North Dakota, where she was living at the time, ordered her to pay $25,000 after she was found to have used money collected—which she claimed was to fund homeless shelters and wreaths for veterans’ graves—on purchases for herself at McDonald’s, QVC, and elsewhere.”
It figures that anyone who claims to support Donald Trump would be a lying thief just like him, doesn’t it?
