Sinking Lincoln Project – Embroiled in Corruption and Sex Scandals

A new report is shedding light on the “toxic” work environment of the embattled anti-Trump organization The Lincoln Project, including details about the alleged shady finances that appear to benefit the group’s co-founders.

Sources told the 19th that there was lots of infighting among the group’s leaders. For example, three of its co-founders, Reed Galen, Mike Madrid, and Ron Steslow, formed their own board “without input from some of the other co-founders.”

Jennifer Horn, a co-founder and one of The Lincoln Project’s few female leaders, was “left out of meetings and not consulted about key decisions or public statements.”

According to the report, young men in the group were referred to as “wizards” while young women were referred to as “girls.” Political rivals, meanwhile, were referenced using various profane terms, including misogynistic and homophobic slurs.

In December, The Lincoln Project sent “two round sum payments of $1.1 million and $300,000” to Madrid’s firm, Grassroots Lab. That same day, the group allocated $900,000 to Steslow’s firm, TUSK Digital.

“All of the payments were described as for ‘political strategy consulting’ on campaign finance filings,” the 19th reported. “The Lincoln Project was organized as a super PAC, meaning it could raise and spend unlimited sums of money but had to disclose only basic details about where the money was going.”

Two former Lincoln Project interns have come forward with lurid text messages they allegedly received from co-founder John Weaver. Weaver allegedly preyed on Alex Johnson, a senior at the University of Texas at Austin, and Charlie Stephens, who attends Louisiana State University, last year as he recruited them as interns to his anti-Donald Trump super PAC.

These are the people that will help the GOP?

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
