Joe Biden hasn’t even been in office for an entire month.
But the scandals within his administration are piling up.
And a sexual scandal involving a child could take down some of Joe Biden’s key allies.
Back in 2019, along with several other failed Bush-era Republican political hacks and strategists, John Weaver founded the Lincoln Project for the sole purpose of raising millions of dollars to defeat Donald Trump and elect Joe Biden as President.
All in all, the group raised $90 million for their efforts, of which $50 million was funneled directly to companies owned by the Lincoln Project’s founders.
But today the Lincoln Project is embroiled in scandals after the New York Times broke the news that John Weaver used his status within the group to groom young men for sexual relationships, including a 14-year old boy.
Of course, the Lincoln Project’s founders are vehemently claiming they didn’t know about Weaver’s predatory behavior.
But according to the Associated Press, the group’s leaders were made aware of Weaver’s behavior in writing and through follow-up phone calls of 10 allegations of harassment against Weaver, including two by Lincoln Project staffers, in June of 2020.
Fearing they’d been exposed, the group’s founders hired a high-dollar legal firm to conduct an audit of the organization and recommend best practices moving forward to ensure something like this never happens again in the future.

Given the fact that Weaver’s partners looked the other way back in June 2020, most of the public believe this statement is not only unbelievable, but isn’t enough since Weaver was a creep who preyed on young men.
