Second Minor Reportedly Accuses Lincoln Project’s Weaver of Harassment as Bardella, Conway Say Shut it Down
“Just shut it down already … it’s over.”
On Monday night, author Ryan Girdusky told Laura Ingraham that another minor accused Lincoln Project founder John Weaver of sexual harassment.
Then on Tuesday, former member Kurt Bardella and founder George Conway called for those remaining to shut down the Lincoln Project.
Fuzzy has done an excellent job documenting the Lincoln Project’s downward spiral.
Girdusky broke the allegations against Weaver in January, including one minor. Over 20 people have now come forward. The AP reported that LP leadership found out about ten sexual harassment allegations against Weaver in writing and through phone calls.
Weaver faces accusations from another teenager:
“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.
The teenager claimed Weaver “‘aggressively’ sexually harassed him.”
Girdusky became aware of the teenager after others came forward asserting that Weaver sexually harassed them:
He added that he was able to obtain correspondence and direct messages on social media that the teenager claims to have been with the Lincoln Project co-founder.
“He promised them jobs and internships in exchange for sexual favors,” Girdusky continued. “Usually John Weaver did this through Twitter, that was how he direct messaged all these kids … and young men … so I was able to see the correspondence that they had.”
Lincoln Project senior advisor Kurt Bardella recently left while scandals swallow up the group. (He did this quietly while I remember him leaving Breitbart with a bang in 2016)
He wants LP to end.

Bardella responded to an updated article by 19th News reporter Amanda Becker, which said the founders knew about allegations against Weaver existed in March 2020.
That’s three months before the AP report I mentioned in the above section.
It's a shame, and we shouldn't forget the hard work of so many people and the positive things the organization did, but yes, I think this is right. https://t.co/To9dKcrigm

A lot of people want to know when Conway, Bardella, and others knew about Weaver. Conway left in August for family reasons but wants LP to release him from his nondisclosure agreement.DONATE
