Jesse Taylor, a former lobbyist from Idaho, allegedly infiltrated former president Donald Trump’s inner circle, engaging in a series of deceptive schemes.

Some of these schemes include fraudulent political donations, false promises of access to Trump and faking a cancer treatment to extract money from wealthy individuals in Palm Beach.

Taylor allegedly gained access to Trump and his family by attending events at Mar-a-Lago and forging relationships with high-profile figures in Trump’s circle, such as Donald Trump Jr and Kimberly Guilfoyle.

He presented himself as an influential political consultant living in luxury while claiming to be undergoing treatment for bladder cancer.

However, Taylor’s schemes crumbled when it was discovered that he had bounced a $25,000 donation check and was selling photo opportunities with Trump for personal gain.

In addition, Taylor allegedly offered ambassadorships in the Trump administration to potential donors in exchange for consulting contracts without the campaign’s knowledge.

Following this, Trump’s attorney, David Warrington, wrote a letter to Taylor warning him to stop alleged fraudulent fundraising activities using Trump’s campaign to scam donors.

“It has come to our attention that you are soliciting campaign contributions under the false premise that you are acting on behalf of President Trump and the Campaign and that you are offering a purported family and friends opportunity to prospective donors and supporters of President Trump,” the letter reads. “We demand that you immediately desist your fraudulent fundraising practices, refund all contributions you have wrongfully appropriated, and retract and refrain from further extortive practices.”

Warrington’s letter also claimed Taylor promised donors positions in a future administration in exchange for consulting contracts and that he threatened campaign staff with leaking sensitive information.

Among Taylor’s victims are drag racer John Odom, GOP donor Greg Mosing and his wife Donna, three of whom claim to have been deceived by Taylor’s false cancer treatment claims.

The Mosings, who fell prey to Taylor’s alleged deception, expressed shock and at the extent of his deceit.

“We never thought the request could be a scam,” they said.

According to Daily Mail, photos Taylor texted to Donna in October 2022 appeared to be photos of him from the waist down getting cancer treatment in a hospital bed.

An investigation by the outlet reveals that Taylor ripped the photo from a 2015 blog by a woman documenting her cancer treatment and passed it off as himself.

However, Taylor denied all the allegations laid against him.

“I categorically deny these allegations made and will take steps to prove they are false,” Taylor said. This is a hit job from several people and at best distorts the truth and at worst is outright lies.”

Idaho court records show that Taylor’s has engaged in deceptive schemes for a long time. In 2003, 18-year-old Taylor stole more than $1,000 of merchandise from an Alco Discount Store storage container.
