John Weaver, a veteran Republican operative who co-founded the Lincoln Project, declared in a statement to Axios that he sent “inappropriate,” sexually charged messages to multiple men.
Said Weaver: “To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry. They were inappropriate and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought on you.”
He added: “The truth is that I’m gay. And that I have a wife and two kids who I love. My inability to reconcile those two truths has led to this agonizing place.”
