Rick Santorum Website Features 4Chan Founder

What is Moot doing on the Patriot Voices page? posted on

Moot, the founder of anarchic Web forum 4Chan, is pictured in a section of the website for former presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s Patriot Voices group, Betabeat noticed on Wednesday.

The photo matches the one on Moot’s (real name: Chris Poole) Wikipedia page.

Spokespeople for Santorum didn’t immediately return BuzzFeed’s request for clarification.

Update: Moot emails to say he doesn’t know how he got there either:

Maybe a user created a profile using my Wikipedia photo as the profile pic, or a designer/intern someone working on the site thought it would be funny. Or I look like a wholesome Tea Partier. Who knows.
