Laura Elizabeth Loomer (born May 21, 1993[1]) is an American far-right and anti-Muslim political activist,[a][b] conspiracy theorist,[2][3] and internet personality. She was the Republican nominee to represent Florida's 21st congressional district in the 2020 United States House of Representatives elections, losing to Democrat Lois Frankel.[4][5] Loomer's candidacy was considered a long shot.[5][6][7]

Loomer has worked as an activist and journalist for several organizations, including Project Veritas, a right-wing group known for producing secretly recorded and deceptively edited undercover audio and video investigations of media organizations and left-leaning groups.[8][9][10] She also briefly reported for the Canadian far-right news website The Rebel Media in 2017, and has occasionally reported for the American far-right conspiracy theory and fake news website InfoWars.[11][9]

Loomer has been banned from numerous social media platforms, payment processors, vehicles for hire and food delivery mobile apps, and other establishments for various reasons, including violating policies on hate speech and spreading misinformation.[12][13][14] After her 2018 ban from Twitter, she handcuffed herself to Twitter's headquarters in New York for two hours before police cut through the handcuffs at her request.[3][15][16] Loomer was also banned from the March 2019 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) after attempting to heckle reporters and chasing them through the conference.[17]
