Most of our readers already could not have heard the words ‘Lincoln Project’ and ‘Integrity’ in the same sentence without laughing out loud. They’ve been outed as the most bottom-feeding class of grifters from the beginning.
But accusations like THIS take it to a whole new low… even for them. Like so many morally-indignant leftist institutions before them, accusations of moral failings are being leveled at one of their bigwigs.
Ryan Girdusky, of the American Conservative, explains the story. Hear him tell Laura Ingraham what he discovered:

From his article on the topic:
Over the summer, John Weaver, the co-founder of the Never-Trump Republican Lincoln Project, followed me on Twitter. It struck me as odd, given that my account was supportive of the president, but I thought little of it. Within a few hours, a young man I know over Twitter sent me a direct message asking if Weaver had contacted me privately, and told me to be on my guard.
…This man, who will stay anonymous, told me he was in communication with several young men solicited by Weaver for a job, after which he propositioned them for sex as part of the offer. He shared direct messages with me of both young men, one of whom had been “strung along for days about a possible job,” and when they met at his hotel, Weaver demanded they engage in sexual intercourse. They did, it was consensual, but Weaver never made good on the job offer. Here is one of those messages shared with me:
…Several other young men approached me throughout the summer with more allegations against Weaver. One young man, a junior in college, told me Weaver would start direct messaging him on Twitter, saying he could offer him an internship in Austin, Texas, or Washington, DC. The direct messages were persistent and led to them exchanging phone numbers and texting about the student’s professional ambitions.
Weaver ended up calling him after midnight during the student’s finals week, claiming he was away from his wife on a work trip. According to the student, Weaver had been drinking but continued to ask about his studies and career ambitions. Weaver abruptly changed topics and asked if he played sports and was athletic. The Lincoln Project co-founder followed up by asking about his height and weight. At this point, the student became uncomfortable and said when asked about his build, he said he was “about average.” Weaver responded, “oh my boy, I’m sure certain parts of you are well above average.”
The student told him he needed to study and abruptly ended the conversation. Weaver would call him later on that night and several times over the next few weeks, but the student blocked his number and his social media. –Full story with screenshots of texts at AmericanConservative
Obviously, this is only an allegation until proven otherwise, but for the founder of an organization whose entire political bread-and-butter was trading on NeverTrump smears and innuendo, the irony of a story such as this one should be self-evident and put all of his work this far into proper perspective.
In the time since this first came to light, Ryan has posted the following…
It’s been nearly 24 hours and @ProjectLincoln still has not responded to the allegations that their founder John Weaver used their group to solicit sex from college-age men. Since that time more have come forward to share their stories and more conversations they had with Weaver. pic.twitter.com/sct1BkCF4b

There COULD be an entirely innocent explanation. Perhaps.
But that’s still going to be a very difficult hole to dig himself out of, don’t you think?
That said, how do you suppose John Weaver would have run with this very same story had it named Trump rather than himself?
Between this clown and the advisor who told Lerner to weaponize the IRS against TEA Party activists, McCain really knew how to surround himself with salt-of-the-earth people, didn’t he?
