The Lincoln Project is a bunch of self-righteous Never Trump nutballs. They’ve founded an organization of supposed conservatives who go around talking about their “norms” and civility as they call Trump supporters racist and get invited on liberal cable news.
They’re also founded by a man who’s accused of being a perverted gay pedophile. It’s become so undeniable that even the New York Times has been forced to cover the allegations against Lincoln Project founder John Weaver.
The accusations against Weaver are very bad. And they have extensive proof in the form of screenshots and witness testimony.
21 Accusers Come Forward Against Lincoln Project Founder
The Times story talks to 21 young men who say Weaver tried to sext them online and offer them jobs in return for sexual activity. One of them says he was only 14 when Weaver direct messaged him on Twitter asking him about his body and offering to take him on a trip to Las Vegas and “spoil” him.
Another young man called Kyle Allen – who is 23 – said 61-year-old Weaver asked him if he is circumcised and told another young men he would “give advice, counsel, help with bills. You help me … sensually.”
Another accuser by the name of Cody Bralts said Weaver struck up a conversation on Twitter and started direct messaging. When Bralts said he liked running long distance, Weaver wrote: “at least I know that whatever we end up doing, you could do it multiple times in a row.”
Weaver is a Republican strategist and is married with two kids, but has admitted he was sexting young men. In many cases he wasn’t just sending inappropriate messages, either. He was directly offering job promotion and favors to young men looking for a career break in return for them doing sexual things with him.
Around 100 have come forward at this point.
Weaver co-founded the Lincoln Project in 2019 and stepped down two weeks ago.
The Lincoln Project Responds
Weaver co-founded the Lincoln Project with another self-righteous Republican operative called Steve Schmidt. This McCain-loving crowd loves to talk about principles, tax cuts and “civility.”
In responding to the serious accusations against Weaver, Schmidt has admitted that leadership at the Lincoln Project did find out that Weaver might be sending messages to men online but that “there was no awareness or insinuations of any type of inappropriate behavior when we became aware of the chatter at the time.”
The story involving Weaver came out earlier in January after American Conservative writer Ryan Girdusky revealed that there were numerous DMs he was getting from people who had been groomed and sexually propositioned by Weaver.
After stepping down Weaver gave a standard apology for bringing people “discomfort” and said “while I am taking full responsibility for the inappropriate messages and conversations, I want to state clearly that the other smears being leveled at me by Donald Trump enablers as a way to get back at the Lincoln Project for our principled stand against democracy are categorically false and outrageous.”
That’s not much of an apology at all.
The Lincoln Project statement as a whole said Weaver led a “secret life that was built on a foundation of deception at every level.” The Project said they are “disgusted and outraged” and added that Weaver “is a predator, a liar, and an abuser.”
As Girdusky and other journalists have said, it’s completely bogus that the Lincoln Project didn’t know Weaver was a major pervert.
EVERYONE knew for years what John was about.
The challenge was the young men wouldn’t talk to reporters even on background (which I understand, they feared retaliation).
But this was no secret. Everyone talked about it. https://t.co/gu3hgG03Mf

So, welcome to the “principled” Never Trump movement, a bunch of warmongering, homosexual pedophile defenders who try to get teenagers to have butt sex with them in return for jobs.
