Meet Timothy Ramthun, Wisconsin GOP Assembly rep spitting up QAnon conspiracy theory pablum

Rep. Timothy Ramthun of Campbellsport made the comment in a recent online video that also questioned a state Supreme Court election that was decided by more than 10 points. 
Ramthun titled his video "The Calm Before the Storm" — a phrase frequently used by QAnon, a baseless conspiracy theory that contends the government is controlled by a cabal of Satanist pedophiles. 
QAnon believers have repeatedly falsely claimed that former President Donald Trump will be reinstated in the White House even though dozens of courts have upheld President Joe Biden’s victory, including in Wisconsin.
