School Board Member Who Shared QAnon Video, Fake News Should Resign, SLO Mayor Says
San Luis Obispo Tribune
San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon and other community members on Tuesday called for a newly elected San Luis Coastal Unified School District board member to resign following social media posts that they called racist, homophobic and anti-science.
About 15 people spoke via Zoom at the district’s board meeting Tuesday night to demand that trustee Eve Dobler-Drew step down from her position.
While she was running for a seat on the board, Dobler-Drew shared several posts to her Facebook and Twitter pages that have since been deleted. The Tribune obtained screenshots of those social media posts.
Posts shared by Dobler-Drew urged people to “vote against Democrats because they support (Black Lives Matter)“ and claimed that COVID-19 was designed in a Wuhan, China, laboratory. Scientific evidence contradicts the latter claim, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
In May, Dobler-Drew shared on Facebook a video titled “Follow the White Rabbit” that has since been taken down.
At the end of the video, the words “now comes the pain,” and “WWG1WGA,” a QAnon slogan meaning “where we go one, we go all” appear along with “QAnon Follow the White Rabbit.”
Dobler-Drew said she deleted the social media posts because she was pursuing a “non-partisan, non-political school board position.”
“All those tweets are part of the past. Those things are past history, and don’t have any bearing on what I’m doing now,” she previously told The Tribune.
