January 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The bitterly “NeverTrump” lobbying organization the Lincoln Project is under fire this week following accusations that co-founder John Weaver has attempted to use his position to “groom” young men into sexual encounters.

At The American Conservative, Ryan Girdusky reveals texts he received from anonymous sources regarding “several young men solicited by Weaver for a job, after which he propositioned them for sex as part of the offer.”

Gidursky states: “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.”

“He began the call by asking about my studies, my future career interests, etc., but then made a weird transition to asking if I played intramurals & if I was athletic,” one accuser says of Weaver, who had “clearly” been drinking. “Then started asking me about my height & weight. At that point I was very uncomfortable, so I just said I was ‘around average.’ He responded, and I remember vividly, ‘oh my boy, I’m sure certain parts of you are well above average.” The accuser says he quickly ended the call, and blocked repeated follow-up calls and texts. 

“Over the summer, the story on Weaver’s predatory actions had multiple setbacks as victims dropped out, claiming they feared it would hurt their future job prospects,” Girdusky continues. “Without someone willing to go on record, the story was dead. Publications wouldn’t touch it because of fear that they’d be sued.”

Over the weekend, Girdusky publicly alluded to the story on Twitter, in retaliation for the Lincoln Project’s threat to start work on a database of former Trump administration employees to ensure “they will be held accountable” in their future professions.

For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.

Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.

And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.

Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.

January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.

January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.

(After you have signed this petition, take a couple of minutes to personally contact your state legislators by email, Twitter, or by phone, using the Voter Voice tool provided to you by LifeSite. With one click of a button, you can contact them without having to look up any contact details yourself!)

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.

Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.

And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition. And then, please take 5 minutes to contact your local state representatives using the Voter Voice link below. With Voter Voice, it really couldn't be easier.

Thank you!

Following those tweets, a man named Josh Price publicly named Weaver in a since-deleted tweet as someone who “did it to me.” Journalist Scott Stedman also joined in:

Girdusky adds that rumors of such behavior have swirled around Weaver for years: “According to The New Republic, Karl Rove alleged that Weaver made passes at young men back in 2000. At the time, Rove and Weaver were competitors to be the dominant consultant in Texas. Their professional feud allowed any allegations to be dismissed as a smear campaign by Rove.”

The Lincoln Project, which bills its mission as “defeat[ing] President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box,” has yet to respond to the allegations, but this is far from the first scandal the organization has faced this year. Over the summer, Breitbart reported that Federal Election Commission data shows the Project spent more than 89% of its total disbursements  from November 5, 2019 to March 31, 2020 on “operating expenditures,” and that it has paid more than $2 million to vendors owned by co-founders Reed Galen and Ron Steslow.
