Brian Perras thinks Joe Biden molests kids and Ukraine had something to do with Baltimore’s bridge disaster. He’s running for Congress.

The Pasco County Republican filed paperwork to challenge Laurel Lee in CD 15.

Republican podcaster Brian Perras believes President Joe Biden molests children. He suspects that the Baltimore bridge collapse was connected to Ukraine. And he wants President Donald Trump’s endorsement as he challenges U.S. Rep. Laurel Lee.

“Trump wanted the most MAGA Republican in that race, and that’s me,” the New Port Richey Republican said. “I’ve been treated the same as President Trump, not on as large a scale.”

Perras last week became the first GOP Primary challenger to Lee, a Thonotosassa Republican. He said he understands legal persecution after he was arrested for challenging a Pasco County Schools mask mandate and knows what it’s like to fight party establishment because he tried to dissuade the distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine.

He’s challenged Republican members of Congress before and ran in a GOP Primary against U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis in 2022.

In 2020, he ran in California against U.S. Rep. Tony Cardenas, a Democrat, in a jungle Primary. But after Trump in March called for a challenger to step up to Lee in Florida’s 15th Congressional District, Perras hopes to find greater support for a run this year.

As for what agenda he brings to the table, his podcast, carried by, offers a hint at his political views. He regularly denounces sex trafficking on the show. The Lakeland Ledger reported that he “volunteers for an anti-human trafficking organization.”

But a listen to his content, including descriptions of communists in Hollywood and Washington trafficking children, sounds akin to QAnon conspiracies that have animated the Right in recent years.

While Perras did not claim an association with that specific online movement, he signaled similar sentiments.

“I don’t know what QAnon is, but if securing the border and stopping sex trafficking is QAnon, I guess I’m QAnon,” he said.

He’s especially concerned about Biden, his family and potential connections to sex trafficking. He said he has seen excerpts from Hunter Biden’s laptop released by whistleblowers.

Sexual images from the laptop have been shown in House Oversight Committee hearings by U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican. But attorneys for Hunter Biden, President Biden’s son, have questioned the validity of some content shared on the internet purportedly from the laptop. “There have been multiple attempts to hack, infect, distort and peddle misinformation regarding Mr. Biden’s devices and data,” an attorney for Hunter Biden told CBS News.

But as for the President himself, Perras said he has seen plenty of photos to make him believe there’s an unhealthy interest in children.

“Everything is tied to human and child sex trafficking,” Perras told Florida Politics. “They keep selected people in there to do this. The Bidens. The Obamas. The CIA.”

He also pointed at digital images allegedly from a stolen diary of Ashley Biden, the President’s daughter.

The Justice Department has recommended prison time for Aimee Harris, a woman who pleaded guilty to stealing the diary and selling it to Project Veritas.

Perras referenced pages of the diary published online allegedly describing inappropriate behavior by Joe Biden. But Project Veritas never published the contents, and the outlet has debunked images allegedly from the diary that appear online.

Perras also said he believes the 2020 election was stolen, based on interviews with experts on his podcast and from watching the Dinesh D’Souza-directed documentary “2,000 Mules.” He said Republican state Rep. Berny Jacques confirmed to him that illegal aliens vote in Florida and accused the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections of withholding information he requested on dead people on Florida’s voter rolls.

Trump won Florida’s electoral votes in 2020. But Perras has called for an audit of the election, which incidentally took place while Lee was Florida’s Secretary of State.

“I worked with people here who went door to door in Pinellas, and people had ballots that went to an address in an empty lot,” he said.

He criticized votes in Congress by Lee, most recently her vote in favor of a budget deal that Biden just signed.

On his podcast, he recently spent significant time focusing on a since-debunked claim that the captain of a cargo ship that ran into and leveled a bridge in Baltimore was Ukrainian. “It could have been sabotaged ahead of time and he might not have known, just like the Titanic,” he said on the podcast.

He told Florida Politics that he believes the incident was intended to create a “shortage scare” so federal funding would be sent to Baltimore rather than the city relying on an insurance bailout. He later clarified he isn’t accusing Ukraine of being behind the attack. “I do believe it wasn’t a coincidence that the ship hit the bridge,” he said.

“I’m about securing the border, stopping the spending and human trafficking, just getting it and bringing the U.S. back to our Judeo-Christian principles and getting back to following the U.S. Constitution,” he said. “If people want someone who is going to stand tall and stand firm and not be afraid, elect Brian Perras.”

Synergy Marine Group, the company that manages the ship, told the Associated Press late last month that its captain and crew at the time of the bridge crash were Indian. The two pilots navigating the ship through Baltimore waters when the collision happened were both U.S. citizens.

        To my knowledge none of those folks paid a stripper to stay quiet with campaign funds, grossly manipulated real estate values to scam taxing authorities, declared bankruptcy 11 times, separated migrant children from their parents, acted like a deer in the headlights when covid struck, smeared ketchup on the White House walls, or summoned a rabble of white trash “patriots” to try to overturn an election he lost by a mile. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, sort of like the budget deficit he ran. Jan 6 was the most disgraceful thing I’ve ever seen, and since I read the comments here I can say I have seen a lot of disgraceful things.

    Good evening America,
    This Brian guy could have used a “Superior Campaign Advisor” such as myself, Earl Pitts American. Because Bustin Out with these even if true 8iden accusations is not the Sage way to win. We’ve got the entire Democratic Registared voters in America looking for a Sage reason to “Save The Republic” by their “Cross-Over Votes” for Republicans ….. we all know that to be true after the Democratic Party’s “EPIC FAILS” dating back to Day 1 of the 8iden Administration.
    These Registared Democrats are, one and all, very sensitive much like 2nd grade Elementry Students. Brian needs to sneek up on them and win their trust first. Then they will do whatever Brian wants which is Only Their Votes to keep their playground a Safe and Happy Place.
    Everyone should just be nice and cultivate these Registared Democrats Votes in a kind and gentel way.
    Thank you America,

        TJB, the earl pitts poster on this site is a fake name poster. his real name is billy purser. he can be looked up on Wikipedia under the also fake name gary burbank. i found a picture of him, he’a a nelly, limp wristed, gay man. i am not homophobic, but i know a drag queen when i see one. there are people in the cincinati ohio area that talk about him from when he lived in cincinati. apparently, he was well known for his flamboyant behavior. the earl pitts on this site is 82 years old, so he is not the one you posted about. the guy is a nuisance, that is for sure.
