Lincoln project co-founder and alleged 4chan hoax victim Rick Wilson launched an attack on Jewish-American journalist and U.S. House candidate Laura Loomer that invoked historical antisemitic tropes, calling her “vile, personally repugnant, wildly immoral and crazier than a latrine rat.”
Speaking to National File, Loomer repudiated the antisemitic smear and noted that Wilson never offered up such a rage-filled critique for disgraced Lincoln project co-founder John Weaver, who was exposed for reportedly sexually harassing and attempting to coerce at least 21 young men into sex acts.
“Loomer may be vile, personally repugnant, wildly immoral and crazier than a latrine rat, but Republican primary elections now reward rather than punish that kind of behavior,” Wilson seethed in reference to Loomer’s steadily growing momentum in Florida’s 21st U.S. Congressional District race.
Speaking to National File, Loomer offered up a scathing rebuke of Wilson and his conduct as a founder of the disgraced anti-Trump organization The Lincoln project, stating, “Funny how Rick Wilson has such vitriol and condemnation for an outspoken Jewish republican woman. Speaking of sewage and vermin, perhaps Rick can also let us know when he plans on sharing the same level of contempt and condemnation for his pedophile coworkers at the Lincoln Project.”
As National File previously reported in January, the Lincoln Project was forced to disavow co-founder John Weaver after a slew of young men came forward to reveal that the former John McCain advisor had used his position of power in politics to sexually harass them in explicit detail:
One man told Girdusky that Weaver, who apparently called all or most his targets “my boy”, specifically demanded sex in exchange for a job after he met one man in a hotel room.
“This man, who will stay anonymous, told me he was in communication with several young men solicited by Weaver for a job, after which he propositioned them for sex as part of the offer,” wrote Girdusky. “He shared direct messages with me of both young men, one of whom had been ‘strung along for days about a possible job,’ and when they met at his hotel, Weaver demanded they engage in sexual intercourse.”
The story continued to build until today, The New York Times, who Girdusky says has known about this story since the summer, revealed that Weaver specifically attempted to flirt with a 14-year-old boy.
The Lincoln Project has also faced accusations of funneling tens of millions of donor funds into companies owned by the organization’s co-founders.
