According to the article, during the presidential campaign back in 2016, Cohen hired John Gauger, the chief technology officer at the Liberty University – an evangelical institution - to rig top polls in Trumps favour.
Bizarrely however, Gauger says Cohen also hired him to set up a fan Twitter account that posts about how hot he is.
During the presidential race, Mr. Cohen also asked Mr. Gauger to create a Twitter account called @WomenForCohen.
The account, created in May 2016 and run by a female friend of Mr. Gauger, described Mr. Cohen as a “sex symbol,” praised his looks and character, and promoted his appearances and statements boosting Mr. Trump’s candidacy.

Cohen confirmed the poll-rigging, saying he did it “at the direction of and for the sole benefit of @realDonaldTrump.”
