The ‘QAnon Shaman’ is a failed actor who lives with his mom, believes spiral signs are an ‘FBI pedophile code’ and drives a battered Hyundai car plastered with conspiracy slogans, DailyMail.com can disclose.

33-year-old Jacob Angeli Chansley is one of the MAGA rioters wanted by DC police for his part in storming the Capitol building on Wednesday.

Photos of Chansley wandering through the Senate debating chamber while dressed in a horned furry hat and with his face painted red and blue went viral.

He was part of a Trump supporting mob, that also included Proud Boys and white supremacists, who broke into the building in a bid to stop lawmakers certifying Joe Biden’s election win.

Now DailyMail.com can reveal that Chansley has been living with his mother Martha, 56, (left and right) since January 2019 

Four protesters died during the riot – including one woman shot dead by cops – while a deputy was killed after being hit over the head with a fire extinguisher.

Now DailyMail.com can reveal that Chansley has been living with his mother Martha, 56, since January 2019 when he was booted out of his $899-a-month apartment in Phoenix, Arizona, owing $1,247 in rent arrears.

The 33-year-old has no job and, say neighbors, is often seen wandering the streets near her $199,000 Glendale home dressed in his horned shaman get-up.

Another neighbor, who asked not to be named, said he often sees Chansley dancing on the roof of his mother’s home – describing it as ‘bizarre’.

Although Chansley was not home when DailyMail.com visited the property on Friday, his Hyundai car ¿ which has a bumper sticker that reads ¿WQKE¿ - was parked outside

Although Chansley was not home when DailyMail.com visited the property on Friday, his Hyundai car – which has a bumper sticker that reads ‘WQKE’ – was parked outside.

His mother Martha, who is self-employed, declined to comment on her son’s antics, which include repeatedly turning up at protests across Arizona, among them one in July where he filmed himself ranting that Covid-19 is a hoax.

In September, he led a protest at Arrowhead Mall in Glendale, Arizona, where he rambled about child abusers and claimed that a spiral sign close to the bathrooms is actually ‘an FBI pedophile code’ while clutching a sign that read ‘Q sent me’.

He was also part of a rowdy crowd of Trump supporters chanting ‘Stop the Steal’ who showed up at a tabulation center in Maricopa County on November 5.

Chansley’s antics are a far cry from the life he had been hoping for when he graduated from Moon Valley High School in 2005.

Yearbook photos obtained by DailyMail.com show a fresh-faced blond teenager seen smiling with his arms around younger half-brother Tyler, 30.

Along with Tyler, Chansley was also a member of the school debating team and was part of the Moon Valley High Math Club.

Photos accompanying the listing show a tattooed and bearded Chansley flexing his muscles in a flag-print shirt and bandana, while another shows him dressed in his infamous shaman outfit with a blacked up face 

But while Tyler also joined the ‘Rocket Town’ cultural diversity program – describing his experience of spending time with students of color as ‘like being with my family’ – Chansley did not.

Friends from school say he has changed dramatically over the 15 years since he left Moon Valley High.

Former classmate Chris Trubl, 30, of Peoria, Arizona, described his behavior on Wednesday as ‘crazy stuff’.

He said: ‘It’s been 15 years since he left school and he has changed a lot. I haven’t seen him for a few years and I didn’t recognize him when I saw him at the Capitol.

‘I only realized it was him when I saw posts from people at school on social media. He’s changed a lot. That was some crazy stuff he was doing there.’

After leaving school, Chansley’s first act was to change his name. In August 2005, he applied to replace his mother’s maiden name – Angeli – with his 63-year-old stepfather Glen’s last name.

‘My ability to memorize lines is only rivaled by my ability to perform improv and make it appear if my lines were memorized.

‘I am always increasing my abilities and honing my techniques to be the best of the best at what I do.’

Chansley’s main occupation now appears to be protest and he has become a fixture at anti-lockdown rallies in Arizona over the past year.

At one, in July 2020, he was filmed himself screaming that the Covid-19 second wave is ‘bulls**t’, adding ‘COVID-1984 is a globalist propaganda hoax’ – a reference to the George Orwell novel.

His Twitter feed is dominated by conspiracy videos and, more recently, details of his plans to attend the MAGA march in DC.

One, posted January 5, defends Proud Boys boss Enrique Tarrio who was banned from DC the day before the Capitol riot.

Chansley is now thought to be making his way back to Arizona, telling 12 News on Thursday he was waiting for a ride home to Phoenix.

He also said he is not worried that he has been listed as a person of interest by DC police and is not concerned about a possible arrest.

If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in jail for damaging a monument.
