Men as Young as 14 Accuse Lincoln Project Founder of Sending Inappropriate Messages

The future of the group remains unknown.

The Lincoln Project, the infamous anti-Trump Republican media operation, was never going to be a permanent thing.

You see, the group was founded on the idea that Trump was pulling the Republican Party too far to the right, despite that being exactly what the country voted for in 2016.  In an effort to sink Trump’s chances, a number of mid-level GOP operatives got together and started working social media users over.  Their content was compromised mostly of hyperbolic videos and snarky replies to other accounts, and appealed to the sophomoric sense of humor of the liberal millennial.

So, when Trump was gone, the Lincoln Project may or may not have stuck around as some sort of loose Republican think tank.

This week, however, their fate may very well have been sealed. 

John Weaver, a co-founder of the Lincoln Project, has been accused of sending explicit messages to nearly a dozen young men, offering them career advice and jobs in exchange for sexual favors.

Weaver, who formerly worked with the late Sen.John McCain (R-AZ) and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), was accused by 21 men of sending unwarranted messages, one who stated that he began receiving messages when he was 14 years old, according to the New York Times.

According to the Times, Weaver told one young man that he would “spoil you when we see each other” and “help you other times. Give advice, counsel, help with bills. You help me … sensually.”

The group was quick to distance itself from Weaver.

The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump Republican group, insists it was unaware of the allegations until it started circulating in the news.

“There was no awareness or insinuations of any type of inappropriate behavior when we became aware of the chatter at the time,” co-founder Steve Schmidt told the Times.

The Lincoln Project went on to release a more forceful statement later in the day, completely condemning Weaver.
