From Tiger Beat’s new-and-improved Gossip sheet email thingie:
— In another Friday disclosure, the Lincoln Project saw another co-founder, Jennifer Horn, depart. She cited “the revelations that another co-founder, John Weaver, was accused of sending unsolicited and sexually provocative messages to young men,” the Times reports.
But that’s not the end of the story. “In a response, the Lincoln Project said that 48 hours ago, Ms. Horn requested ‘an immediate “signing bonus” payment of $250,000 and a $40,000-per-month consulting contract,’ and claimed that in December, she had ‘demanded a board seat on the Lincoln Project, a television show, a podcast hosting assignment and a staff to manage these endeavors.’”
“These demands were unanimously rejected” and Horn’s resignation was accepted, the groups said. Whew!
Horn doesn’t want her brand tainted with the alleged pedophillia of John Weaver (one of his alleged victims was 14 at the time of his, um, solicitation), but she does want the money. No mention of the noble cause for which they fight as being important.
The Lincoln Project is not our friend, and seeing their own internal civil war should show us all that their dedication to fighting Trumpism is only as deep as the Ameros.
