A year after Jan. 6 Capitol riot, a key purveyor of the 'big lie' is heading to Missouri

The night before the anniversary of a mob incited by false claims of a stolen election storming the U.S. Capitol, one of the main peddlers of the so-called “big lie” is scheduled to be in Missouri.

Rep. Ann Kelley, R-Lamar, sent out invitations late last month for a dinner in Jefferson City with Douglas Frank, a high school math teacher from Ohio who claims he discovered secret algorithms used to rig the 2020 election.

According to the invitation, which was first reported by Missouri Scout, the dinner will take place Wednesday, though the exact location is being withheld for “safety reasons.”

“Dr. Douglas Frank is looking forward to this great evening in Jefferson City with distinguished Missourians,” the invitation says. “Get to know the man behind the election data.”

Frank’s claims of a secret algorithm, along with other myths seeking to undermine President Joe Biden’s 2020 victory, have been widely discredited. But that hasn’t stopped many adherents of the lie from latching on to his work.
