YIKES: Co-Founder Of Anti-Trump Group Admits Sending Inappropriate Sex Messages To Young Men

John Weaver is a co-founder of the anti-Trump group known as the Lincoln Project. He worked on the 2008 campaign of John McCain and the 2016 campaign of John Kasich.

It was recently alleged by several young men on Twitter that Weaver had contacted them with the promise of jobs in politics with a clear implication that he expected sex from them in return.

Weaver has now admitted to his role in this.

Lincoln Project cofounder acknowledges sending ‘inappropriate’ sexual messages

John Weaver, a co-founder of the anti-Trump Republican political action committee The Lincoln Project, said Friday that he sent “inappropriate” sexually charged messages to multiple men and issued an apology for his behavior.

“To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry,” Weaver said in a statement to Axios. “They were inappropriate and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought on you.”

“The truth is that I’m gay,” Weaver added in his statement to the outlet. “And that I have a wife and two kids who I love. My inability to reconcile those two truths has led to this agonizing place.”

The statement from Weaver, a longtime GOP operative, came after a number of allegations surfaced this week of men accusing the strategist of sending inappropriate messages.

Multiple men claimed that he had sent them sexually suggestive messages unsolicited, with the messages occasionally including offers of employment or political gain, Axios reported.

This is probably going to put a damper on his consulting work.

It looks like he is already no longer with the Lincoln Project.
