Report: The Lincoln Project Is Full of Republicans. Who Knew?


Ready… Aim… Fire!

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.

    I was happy to see them lambasting the MHSG and appreciated their help advancing the goal of removing the 4th Reich, but I never mistook them for a force for good. They’re R’s.

    Let them cut each other’s throat, hell give them the knives. Then we won’t have to fight them next round.

    I’ve always said that this particular enemy of my enemy is a temporary ally at best, one that I’d trust only as far as I could pick up the Statue of Liberty and throw it. (See: Stalin in WW2)

    Does this mean the Lincoln Project is going to go after the Lincoln Project?

    They did their bit, which was publicity and PSAs with the aim of getting that darn loose cannon bull out of the china shop. Now it’s time to rifle through the wreckage for unbroken pottery to pilfer.

    Despite all of the cash they received, they didn’t accomplish nearly as much as the Democratic activists, largely African American women, did in winning the elections.
