GRASS VALLEY, Calif.- A bizarre conspiracy involving former FBI Director James Comey caused officials at a Grass Valley school to cancel its upcoming fundraiser.
The tweet in question, posted by Comey on April 27, is part of a popular Twitter game with the hashtag #FiveJobsIveHad.
An alt-right conspiracy group called Q-Anon isolated random letters in the tweet and put them together, spelling the acronym G.V.C.S.F.
They claimed that those letters referenced the Grass Valley Charter School Foundation, the group that oversees the school.
The group also circled the letters "Five" and the letters "J" "I" and the word"Had," claiming that they added up to the phrase Five Jihad.
Q-Anon then arrived at the conclusion that a terrorist attack would happen at the Charter Schools Blue Marble Jubilee fundraiser, happening this Saturday.
The group innundated the school with emails warning of the attack.
Foundation President Wendy Willoughby said that the threats were horrible:
“It was everything from Comey and his people were going to come and kidnap our children to there was going to be a mass shooting.”
Out of an abundance of caution, organizers canceled the event.
The jubilee normally raises $25,000 for the school.
Law enforcement said that no credible threat was made.
