FBI Raids Home of Netflix Star and Biden Surrogate Over Underage Sex Allegation
Influencer Jerry Harris was part of Biden campaign's plan to 'win back the internet'
A man featured in a campaign video with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is under federal investigation for soliciting sex with minors, according to USA Today.
Federal agents raided the Illinois home of Jerry Harris, who gained notoriety due to his role in the Netflix documentary Cheer, Monday afternoon as part of a probe into messages sent to minors asking for explicit photos and to meet for sex. The solicitations were flagged for authorities by the 21-year-old's employer.
Just three months ago the Biden campaign used Harris, who has over a million followers on Instagram, as part of Biden's push to sway young voters and "win back the internet," Time magazine reported. The Instagram live video of Harris and Biden was viewed nearly 300,000 times.
After publication of this article, the Instagram video was removed from the social media platform. The Free Beacon captures a screenshot of the image before it was deleted.
