In recent months, Doug Mastriano consultant and Gab CEO Andrew Torba has frequently signaled to his users that the social media platform is a home for antisemites by reposting attacks on Jews. Torba has highlighted Gab users who have claimed that Jews are "subversive"; in control of the government, media, and financial institutions; and Christ killers. He's also reposted a conspiracy theory blaming Jews for "white genocide" and praise of Gab for offering "differing opinions" on the Holocaust.

Mastriano is a QAnon supporter and January 6 insurrectionist who is the Republican nominee for Pennsylvania governor.

He said in a government filing that he paid $5,000 to Gab for "consulting" services on April 28. The Huffington Post's Christopher Mathias reported that the payment seems to be for new followers, as "every new account currently being created on Gab automatically follows Mastriano." (Torba has denied this while Mastriano has responded by retweeting someone calling the strategy "creative campaigning.") Mastriano has also praised Torba, who has endorsed Mastriano.
