In the time since the couple split, David [Mikkelson] has run the company’s day-to-day operations, and authored a number of ‘fact checks‘.

He has also made hires – including Elyssa Young, 47, an administrative assistant at Snopes.

She is also a long-time escort and porn star who has worked for decades under the name ‘Erin O’Bryn’ – and now his wife.

Mikkelson married Young last month in Washington state….

One of the lead fact-checkers, Kim LaCapria, has also been a sex-and-fetish blogger who went by the pseudonym ‘Vice Vixen.’

She described her blog as a lifestyle website ‘with a specific focus on naughtiness, sin, carnal pursuits, and general hedonism and bonne vivante-ery.’

In others posts, LaCapria claimed to be ‘addicted to smutty HP [Harry Potter] fanfic.’

Describing her day-off activities on another blog, she wrote that she ‘played scrabble, smoked pot, and posted to Snopes.’ She added, ‘That’s what I did on my day “on,” too.’
