John Weaver's contention that his political sex life was completely consensual, and the cover up of his alleged predatory behavior by liberal media and the Lincoln Project, speak to the high level of corruption and hypocrisy practiced by Weaver and present in both organizations. As for Weaver, his innocent act is laughable.
Anyone who has ever worked as a campaign professional knows the real story. A long time GOP female campaign operative told LifeZette, when asked about the Weaver story, "Ha! Campaigns are revolving doors for sex. Everybody is sleeping with everybody and those in politics, and there are a bunch of people like this in campaigns, who have not had romantic success in the past will try to use their political power to sleep with anyone they can. Weaver looks like one of those people."
The media knows this and has done a lot to cover up Weaver's issues, given their love of the Lincoln Project mission. But last weekend, the wall cracked.
FNC: "Multiple networks turned a blind eye to the explosive sexual harassment allegations made against Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver. On Sunday, The New York Times ran a bombshell report, which levels that 21 young men have accused Weaver of sexually charged online messages, including one who was 14 years old at the time the longtime GOP operative began their exchange. Since then, the controversy earned no coverage on CNN, NBC and CBS. More notably, CNN avoided the subject after inviting one of Weaver's former bosses on-air."
Morning Joe did do a Captain Renault interview with the Lincoln Project's George Conway on the subject. "It's terrible and awful and appalling and unfathomable, I, I didn't know John very well. I frankly only spoke to him a couple of times on the phone early on in the Lincoln Project. It's almost, I don't even know what to say. It's just terrible,"
Conway told host Mika Brzezinski. "It leaves me speechless, frankly."
His level of outraged indignation is so over the top, methinks the hack doth protest too much.
"Conway's comments suggesting he didn't know Weaver very well were mocked by critics, especially since the two of them co-wrote a New York Times op-ed in December 2019 headlined, 'We Are Republicans, and We Want Trump Defeated.'"
Weaver said to the New York Times: "I am so disheartened and sad that I may have brought discomfort to anyone in what I thought at the time were mutually consensual discussions. In living a deeply closeted life, I allowed my pain to cause pain for others. For that I am truly sorry to these men any everyone and for letting so many people down."
He must have snickered over that bit of horse manure when he was writing it.
But Laura Ingraham wasn't buying it. "But let's face it, the only Republicans the media will ever love are former Republicans, especially like the grifters at the Lincoln Project...John Weaver, the media's go-to guy for calling out conservatives over their political and moral deviance. Well, you may recall The Angle was the first television show to break this story...That was almost three weeks ago, but it was only this past weekend that 'The New York Times' finally saw fit to cover this sleazy Weaver saga..The 'true conservative' is now accused of making sexual overtures to 21 young men including a 14-year-old. Asking questions about his body while he was still in high school. And then more pointed ones after he turned 18...Now as for the money grabbers at the Lincoln Project itself, they did not discuss the predatory behavior of the cofounder until 'The Times' coverage made it impossible to avoid. It is time for America to hold these people accountable for their misrepresentations."
