Founder of Anti-Trump Organization Caught Sending Inappropriate Texts to Underage Boys
The Never-Trumper organization, The Lincoln Project has run into some major problems. Hmm, who would have imagined that these folks are involved in shady dealing?
Now, it has been revealed that one of the founders of the organization was caught sending sexually explicit images to someone other than his wife.
Oh, I forgot to mention, he wasn’t sending the images to another woman. He was sending them to other men…twenty-one men to be more exact according to the New York Times.
John Weaver, who actually advised RINOs John McCain and John Kasich was sending messages to people as young as 14-years-old.
The New York Times reported,
These messages from Mr. Weaver, 61, who helped run John McCain’s presidential campaigns in 2000 and 2008 and John Kasich’s in 2016, did not lead to physical encounters except in one consensual case, and none of the men accused Mr. Weaver of unlawful conduct. Rather, many of them described feeling preyed upon by an influential older man in the field in which they wanted to work, and believing they had to engage with his repeated messaging or lose a professional opportunity.
Mr. Weaver sent overt sexual solicitations to at least 10 of the men and, in the most explicit messages, offered professional and personal assistance in exchange for sex. He told one man he would “spoil you when we see each other,” according to a message reviewed by The New York Times. “Help you other times. Give advice, counsel, help with bills. You help me … sensually.”
Allegations became public this month in @amconmag and an open letter from @GarrettHerrin, one of the men Weaver messaged. My and @dannyhakim's reporting shows how widespread the harassment was — 21 men came forward within days — and how aggressive it got. https://t.co/agnfQZubW5

Yesterday, The Lincoln Project released a statement about Weaver:
“John Weaver led a secret life that was built on a foundation of deception at every level. He is a predator, a liar, and an abuser. We extend our deepest sympathies to those who were targeted by his deplorable and predatory behavior. We are disgusted and outraged that someone in a position of power and trust would use it for these means.
The totality of his deceptions are beyond anything any of us could have imagined and we are absolutely shocked and sickened by it. Like so many, we have been betrayed and deceived by John Weaver. We are grateful beyond words that at no time was John Weaver in the physical presence of any member of The Lincoln Project.”
