Prior to his very public unveiling as President Donald Trump’s longtime fixer, who facilitated hush money payments to women during the 2016 election, Michael Cohen had a relatively low profile. But a new report by the Wall Street Journal revealed how Cohen tried to boost his image.

Cohen reportedly paid RedFinch Solutions, a firm run by the Chief Information Officer at Liberty University John Gauger, to do some online work for him. One part was trying to rig online polls to favor Trump. Gauger wrote a script to vote repeatedly for Trump in a January 2014 poll about America’s best businessmen.

But the other was creating @WomenForCohen, a Twitter account to talk about what a sex symbol the Long Island lawyer was.

The account only gained 500 followers, but dang if it didn’t try its hardest to hype up Cohen.

“We are ready for fall air, crisp mornings, & seeing this guy dressed to impress!” the handle tweeted on Sept. 3, 2016.

Although the tweets are thirsty as hell, the bio is even more ludicrously fawning: “Women who love and support Michael Cohen. Strong, pit bull, sex symbol, no nonsense, business oriented, and ready to make a difference!”

According to the Wall Street Journal, Gauger felt that Cohen stiffed him for his work, only paying him approximately $12,000 instead of an agreed-upon $50,000. Gauger said Cohen also paid in cash instead of check and included a boxing glove in the bag of money, which Cohen claimed had been worn by a Brazilian MMA star.

A payment of $50,000 for “tech services” was cited in a document charging Cohen with campaign finance violations in August.
