In December 2020, the outlet reported that Hall raised $7,384 in a bogus GoFundMe campaign for a fake organization called “Gay Voices for Trump,” which Hall described as “a grass-roots coalition of LGBT Americans.”
The campaign was to fund “field organizing, events, and merchandise” for the fictitious political organization, guised as a ruse to reelect Trump.

The federal complaint against Hall alleges he “defrauded hundreds of victims by making false representations” and then “used the funds raised for his own personal living expenses.”
Investigators claim Hall accumulated more than 100,000 followers on social media and used the accounts to obtain media coverage that “he then exploited,” per the complaint.
Hall gained national attention in November after Trump fell for a fake Twitter profile he believed was his sister when Hall tweeted that Elizabeth wanted to overturn the election — echoing Trump’s baseless claims that the 2020 election was rigged against him — to which the then-president responded: “Thank you Elizabeth. LOVE!”
The tweet is now hidden following Trump’s ban from Twitter following the violent siege on the U.S. Capitol in January.
