A Second Teenager Is Reportedly Alleging That Lincoln Project Founder and McCain Aide John Weaver "Aggressively" Sexually Harassed Him; New Reports Say That Founders Steve Schmidt and Rich Galen Knew About Their Problem At Least as Early as March

Free mustache rides, my boy. Free mustache rides.

A second teenager has accused ousted Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver of "aggressively" sexually harassing him, according to the journalist who initially broke the story.

The second minor accuser comes on the heels of a New York Times report from Jan. 31 that Weaver -- who helmed the anti-Trump super PAC -- sexually harassed a 14-year-old boy.

"I am here to say that I have made contact with another minor who was sexually harassed by John Weaver," reporter Ryan Girdusky said Monday on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle."

"He is still a minor today. He doesn't want his name to come forward because he is a minor," added Girdusky, who first reported the allegations against Weaver last month for the American Conservative.


...

"John Weaver aggressively sexually harassed him. ... there's possibly more [accusers] to come," he said.

Last week, the New York Magazine reported that several of the founders heard complaints about Weaver's predations -- much earlier than they will admit hearing of them.

On June 17, a person working at the Lincoln Project sent an email to co-founder Steslow that reported ten allegations of Weaver's harassing men, including at least one employee at the Lincoln Project; three people independently described the contents of the email to Intelligencer and said it warned Weaver could be using his position at the company to make promises of career advancement to prey on young men. The complaint called Weaver's predatory behavior an immediate threat to the company that, if it became public, could render a death blow to the Lincoln Project's reputation. As the complaint noted, the Lincoln Project itself was attacking Trump as a sexual predator. Steslow raised the email with his fellow co-founder Galen and corporate counsel Matthew Sanderson, the AP reported. Yet Weaver's harassment continued. (Weaver did not respond to requests for comment.)

...

Schmidt said that all the Lincoln Project had heard was "chatter" in early July that Weaver, who is married to a woman, was gay.
...

The company's leaders told the New York Times in January they had not been aware of such allegations until they publicly surfaced that month, contrary to the complaint received and circulated by Steslow. The Times reported Weaver had sent messages that ranged from provocative to sexually explicit to 21 men going back years, including to one recipient who was 14 years old, though none worked at the Lincoln Project.

...

Stephens [a 19 year old being sexually harassed by Weaver -- ace] was hired in July on Weaver's recommendation and placed at Steslow's firm -- after Steslow was warned Weaver might be offering jobs to victims. (Steslow did not respond to requests for comment.)

...

In August 2020, Weaver took a medical leave of absence from the Lincoln Project owing to what Schmidt and Wilson called a cardiac problem. Weaver practically disappeared from company business around the time, former employees said, leading them to believe the company had sidelined him over the allegations.

So that says that Schmidt and Reed knew of the sexual harassment complaints as early as June.

The 19th News (strange name, I know) reports that some of the leaders knew earlier than that, back in March.

Some of the leaders of the embattled Lincoln Project knew about sexual harassment allegations against co-founder John Weaver as early as March, multiple sources, including the group's former executive director, told The 19th late Monday.

They don't say who it was that knew of these charges in March.

Why would they cover for a man they knew was recruiting young men for jobs in exchange for sex?

Probably because they were making more money than they'd ever seen, and that many of them were in financial trouble before the National Man-Boy Lincoln Association grift.

Steve Schmidt bragged that the grift was his way to making "generational wealth."

Generational wealth means that excess wealth earned in a lifetime that can be passed to future generations.

So what's the big deal if Weaver was pressuring young men, including a 14 year old boy, for gay sex?"

Another point of internal financial contention was the donor information that Lincoln Project amassed with ads that spread across social media. The specifics over who or which entity would own the data was not negotiated in advance, sources said, and the data's market value grew as more and more people gave.

A frequent quip from Schmidt overheard by multiple people was that the Lincoln Project was his vehicle to achieve "generational wealth."

The report also notes a little problem with Fake Conservatives pulling a hard left turn and hiring a bunch of super-partisan liberal SJWs: Their staffers complained about these fine fellows' language:

There was language used in both the Lincoln Project's ads and within its workplace about gender and sexuality that made many of them uncomfortable, the dozens of interviews revealed.

Young men were "wizards" while young women were "girls." Political rivals were "pu*sies" or "c*cksuckers" or "fag*ots." By the time the staff convened in Park City, the situation had become so "toxic," according to more than a dozen accounts, that at least two co-founders, neither of whom remain at the project, had tried unsuccessfully to intervene to improve working conditions.

I use all those words -- except for "wizards," which is demeaning to magic-users -- but then I'm not grifting money from the rabidly woke left.

The staffers also had a problem with talentless cvck (for real) Ben Howe being rehired after having been found to use misogynistic language in the past.

Wunderkind.

Dude's approaching fifty. He ain't no "kind." And he's never been a wunder.

Oh, I missed this irony: Steve Schmidt announced he was quitting his own company on Friday. (Of course, in his blame-shifting statement, titled "My Truth," he claimed he'd been "touched" one time for one second as a boy, and that he was converting to Judaism, and that he was stepping down to make room for a "black female" board member. Who would be taking over a soon-to-be-bankrupt company. What a Woke Hero.)

Anyway, Friday was Lincoln's birthday.
