In October 2016, news broke that William Johnson, an avowed white supremacist, had put together a robocalling campaign to support Trump by attacking Evan McMullin. In the robocall, William tells callers that McMullin's mother is a lesbian married to another woman and speculates that McMullin is likely gay, in part, because he is not married and he is in his 40's. Evan McMullin has denied being gay.[2] In the midst of the robocalling campaign, in early November, William Johnson cut off the robocalls and issued an apology "for the mean-spirited message."[3]
