Little was known about Mike Johnson before he moved from Louisiana obscurity to two heartbeats from the US presidency as speaker of the house. Thanks to a recently resurfaced video from 2022, the world does know one thing: Johnson and his son monitor each other’s porn intake. The duo use a software called Covenant Eyes to act as each other’s “accountability buddies”, receiving at the end of each week a full list of their buddy’s internet history to ensure any e-urges were kept at bay. It’s another chapter that can be added to the book of revelations about Johnson since his ascension, standing alongside his welcoming of fossil fuel-funded campaign donations and description of same-sex marriage being “the dark harbinger of chaos and sexual anarchy”. Johnson has not responded to the media reports and it’s unclear if he still uses the third-party software – which could pose a security risk.
