Twenty-one young men accuse Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver of sending them inappropriate messages offering political career advice in exchange for sex – including one who was just 14

  • The New York Times shared interviews with the 21 accusers in an article Sunday 
  • The accusers described how Weaver preyed upon them for years with unsolicited promises to help them get work in politics in exchange for sex
  • It came two weeks after Weaver publicly admitted to sending inappropriate messages to men and stepped down from the Lincoln Project

Twenty-one men have come forward to accuse John Weaver, a longtime Republican strategist and co-founder of the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, of sexually harassing them online.  

The New York Times outlined interviews with those 21 accusers in an article published Sunday, two weeks after Weaver publicly admitted to sending inappropriate messages to men and stepped down from the Lincoln Project. 

The accusers described how Weaver, 61, preyed upon them for years with unsolicited promises to help them get work in politics in exchange for sex. 

‘Help you other times. Give advice, counsel, help with bills. You help me … sensually,’ he told one man, according to the Times. 

In another case, Weaver allegedly propositioned a boy beginning when he was 14 years old, asking questions about his body that escalated after he turned 18. 

This is a developing story.
