When news that the former Vice President’s wife may have died during an extended interrogation session while in Federal custody leaked out, matters went from bad to worse in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Conspiracy theories flooded the airwaves and internet hubs, and the official media networks silenced and deplatformed any who spread them. They were all obvious lies after all, and no one should be allowed to spread such disinformation without consequences. Some people never even heard the rumors, because they were given no airtime on the mainstream networks. Other people skipped from network to network to follow the news and rumors as more and more investigators sought to find the missing Vice President’s wife.
