Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs lashed out at independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin on Twitter recently, calling him a tool of the “Mormon Mafia.”
McMullin, a Brigham Young University graduate and returned Mormon missionary, is surging in Utah, threatening to topple the #TrumpTrain deep in red state territory. Recent polls of Utah voters give Donald Trump just a five-point edge, with Hillary Clinton and McMullin tied close behind.

This week, the Mormon Mafia fired back with a trending hashtag on Twitter, inviting people into their shadowy world of illicit coffee drinking and good-deed doing. “The
#mormonmafia will shoot you and then frame your friends . . . Into the perfect scrapbook,” said one tweet.
Many took on the mantle of the #MormonMafia as a rallying cry for McMullin’s campaign. “Why kiss the ring and vote for The Don when there’s a new Godfather in town! Join the
#MormonMafia—vote for Evan_McMullin!,” wrote @jordansmama08 in Arkansas.
Here are some more dispatches from the Mormon Mafia:
