A former strategist for George W. Bush, John McCain, and John Kasich, John Weaver was in a celebratory mood on Thursday, declaring“America is great again,” after Congress formally certified Joe Biden’s electoral victory. Though a Republican, Weaver is also a member of the Lincoln Project, a group of disaffected ‘Never Trump’ Republicans and neoconservatives formed with the sole purpose of defeating the president.
Emboldened by Trump’s downfall, and buoyed by the $67 million they raised in the runup to the election, the Lincoln Project began work on a “database” of soon-to-be former Trump staff and officials, with a view to holding them “accountable” for the rest of their professional lives. However, Weaver himself was soon confronted with some alleged skeletons in his own closet.
“Maybe I should start talking about one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project offering jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” Conservative pundit Ryan Girdusky tweeted on Saturday, adding, “his wife is probably interested.”
Girdusky went on to say he had been contacted by several men who claimed to have been groomed by the “founding member.” Girdusky did not reveal more, but said he had screenshots of messages the Lincoln Project member sent to one recipient.
A Twitter user named Josh Price, who has since locked his account, soon came forward and named Weaver as the creep in question. He was followed by another liberal pundit, who claimed Weaver sent him “pushy” and “flirty” messages.
