He told CNN's Andrew Kaczynski jet fuel can't melt steel beams.

The Republican Party nominee for Illinois’ 17th congressional district is a conspiracy theorist who thinks the 9/11 terror attack was an “inside job” and that singer Beyonce Knowles has ties to a secret society known as the “Illuminati.”

CNN reports that GOP nominee Bill Fawell, who ran unopposed in the Republican primary for the congressional seat in Illinois’ 17th district, espoused these conspiracy theories both in his personal blog posts and in his 2012 book, “New American Revolution.”

“Go to YouTube and punch in ‘Building #7’ It’s the third building that went down with the twin towers on 9/11,” Fawell wrote in his book. “Nothing hit this building, not a thing, and it fell entirely upon its own. If it looks like a standard commercial implosion demolition, it’s because that is exactly what it is.”

Additionally, a 2013 blog post written by Fawell asserts that rapper Jay-Z “has a long history of serving up the godless Illuminati” before he shares a video that, in CNN’s words, “speculated that Beyonce’s upcoming halftime performance at the Super Bowl would have Illuminati symbolism.”

Fawell also accused singer Madonna — whom he described as a “narcissist skank with the crooked teeth” — of doing the Illuminati’s bidding during her own halftime show.
