Booker's referendum supplied lease checks and other records to a Buzzfeed journalist for the address several years ago, and the communications director of Booker rejected Johnson's accusations as "laughable".

Johnson published a GotNews post on 30 June 2014 on Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran before the 2014 Mississippi Republican main election. He charged Cochran with bribing African-Americans communities to vote for him in the main Republican Senate of Mississippi.
The story came days after Cochran had beaten Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel in a run-off election. Johnson accused Cochran's party of bribing black democrats to vote for Cochran which as per Johnson was reported to him by a black pastor named Stevie Fielder.

"the account shows a violent streak that may help explain what led to a violent confrontation with Police officer Darren Wilson"
Johnson also filed a lawsuit to release Brown's juvenile records.
Minors ' files are private in Brown's home state of Missouri, but Johnson argued that it was a matter of urgent public interest under state sunshine law but the county's court disagreed.
Further attempts by Johnson to unseal the records went as far as the State Supreme Court of Missouri, which rejected his request.
