Former Lincoln Project Staffers Call for Disgraced Neocon Group to be Shut Down After Grooming, Sexual Harassment Scandal
The neocon Lincoln Project is rapidly dying, with two former staffers of the establishment liberal group calling for the PAC to be shut down in the wake of John Weaver’s pedophilia scandal.
The downfall of the group come as a second allegation of grooming and sexual harassment of a minor is leveled against Weaver, who has become a political disgrace for accounts of grooming that more than 20 young men and boys have reported.
In even more damning fashion, multiple reporters have published accounts revealing that Lincoln Project founder Steve Schmidt was notified of the outstanding allegations against Weaver in March 2020 by text and by email. Schmidt resigned from the Project last week.
Kurt Bardella, a former spokesman and advisor to the neocon group, candidly admitted that there was no coming back for the Lincoln Project and that it was time to shut it down.
Just shut it down already … it’s over. https://t.co/esaNANQLgM

Bardella also removed his affiliation with the Lincoln Project from his Twitter bio just days ago, suggesting a connection with the establishment anti-Trump group has become an embarrassment in political circles.
Left-wing lawyer George Conway, the spouse of Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, openly agreed with Bardella that it was time to shut down the Lincoln Project in the wake of its numerous scandals. Payment processors ended their relationship with the organization last week, cutting off the grift of the group’s multimillionaire consultant operators.
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

With the group’s backers turning on it, it now looks likely that the inappropriately named project will enter the historical record with ignominy as the grift of a sexual predator.
