Disturbing Allegations Made Against Lincoln Project Co-Founder
Predictably, the RINOs at the Lincoln Project jumped on the dangerous, un-American bandwagon this week, vowing to do their part in blacklisting any and all Trump administration officials from finding employment in the private sector. After Forbes Magazine announced this weekend that they would look dimly on any business that hired Kayleigh McEnany, Sarah Sanders, Kellyanne Conway, and others, the Lincoln Project’s Stuart Stevens jumped out to let Twitter users that his group was doing its part.
“At @ProjectLincoln we are constructing a database of Trump officials & staff that will detail their roles in the Trump administration & track where they are now. No personal info, only professional. But they will be held accountable & not allowed to pretend they were not involved,” tweeted Stevens.
But in targeting Trump officials for private-sector persecution, the moral crusaders at the Lincoln Project may have finally overstepped their reach. Because when author Ryan Girdusky saw the tweet, he decided it was time to blow the lid off a dirty Washington secret.
“Maybe I should start talking about one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project offering jobs to young men in exchange for sex… his wife is probably interested,” tweeted Girdusky. “The member followed me on twitter briefly and a few young men started sending me screenshots and telling what happened to them. Grooming is really disgusting and he was especially sloppy.”
Now let’s be really clear here: We have absolutely no idea if these allegations are true. That said, to the extent that the accusations and rumors are out there, they all point to Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver, a political operative who once ran John Kasich’s ill-fated 2016 run for the presidency. Weaver’s name was specifically named in tweets from others claiming that he’d sexually harassed them.
“John Weaver DM’ed and followed virtually every young gay on this site,” tweeted a user by the name of @PittsburghFella. “Even I was reached out to on an old account, but not sexually. One of my friends has even shared with me that John Weaver raped him years ago. It’s incredible how open of a secret this is but no reporting.”
Journalist Scott Steadman – no fan of Trump – jumped into the mix as well.
“One day, [Weaver] DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable,” Steadman shared. “Though we continued to DM every once in a while, the situation left me feeling quite uncomfortable. I brushed it off as one tends to do.”
In another tweet, Steadman said, “Of course, what he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power.”
This will be a bombshell black mark for the Lincoln Project if the allegations are confirmed…and a nice reminder of why we should always be instantly suspicious of any individual or group that claims a monopoly on the moral high ground.
