As is often the case, Donald Trump’s enemies are guilty of the things they accused Trump of doing.
But no one could imagine things would get this bad.
And a sex scandal involving a child just ruined this top Trump critic.
Several RINO consultants that specialized in losing elections formed the Lincoln Project super PAC in 2019 to oppose Donald Trump’s re-election and to defeat any Republican that supported Trump.
Critics accused the groups of being a bunch of grafters that were never conservatives to begin with and tried to capitalize on being exiled from the Republican Party by raking in tens of millions of dollars in donations from big money liberal donors to run what many political observers declared were completely ineffective ads while pocketing tens of millions of dollars.
Of the 90 million dollars raised by the Lincoln Project, just $27 million went towards ads while over 50 million dollars flowed into the accounts of firms owned by the group’s founders.
But now the Lincoln Project faces an existential crisis.
Journalist Ryan James Girdusky broke the story that Lincoln Project co-founder and former John McCain chief strategist John Weaver allegedly groomed young men for sexual relationships with messages over social media with promises of jobs in politics.
The New York Times sent the story nuclear with a report that Weaver allegedly reached out to one young boy when he was 14 years old and sent creepy messages to the boy during his time in high school.
The Lincoln Project released a statement distancing themselves from Weaver but claimed none of the other founders were aware of his predatory behavior.
Those denials were called into question by an Associated Press story detailing how in June 2020, 10 allegations against Weaver—two of which involved Lincoln Project employees—were brought to the attention of some of the group’s leaders.
“In June 2020, members of the organization’s leadership were informed in writing and in subsequent phone calls of at least 10 specific allegations of harassment against co-founder John Weaver, including two involving Lincoln Project employees, according to multiple people with direct knowledge of the situation. The email and phone calls raise questions about the Lincoln Project’s statement last month that it was ‘shocked’ when accusations surfaced publicly this year. It’s also the first known suggestion that Weaver targeted a Lincoln Project staffer,” the Associated Press exclusively reported.
Lincoln Project co-founder and former George W. Bush and John McCain advisor Steve Schmidt continued to deny that the group knew of Weaver creeping on young men.
“No Lincoln Project employee, intern, or contractors ever made an allegation of inappropriate communication about John Weaver that would have triggered an investigation by HR or by an outside employment counsel,” Schmidt told the Associated Press. “In other words, no human being ever made an allegation about any inappropriate sexualized communications about John Weaver ever.”
Schmidt and other Lincoln Project founders’ denials are harder and harder to judge as legitimate.
Critics contend the mask is off at the Lincoln Project and many Americans do not like what they see.
