Meet Jacob Engels, Roger Stone’s Mini-Me
Even in the circus that was last November’s Florida ballot count, Jacob Engels managed to stand out.
Amid the Proud Boys and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) standing on a truck filled with mock ballots, Engels, 27, was a permanent fixture in the Broward County elections board parking lot, leading the Republican crowd outside in chants with a megaphone and sparking rumors about mysterious disappearing ballots.
At one point, he donned a gray wig and a pantsuit in imitation of Broward County elections chief Brenda Snipes. With a coterie of other right-wing activists behind him, Engels headed to a church, megaphone in hand, and tried to protest a rally for Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Andrew Gillum.
