The Lincoln Project’s co-founder John Weaver has been released from his duties after allegedly living a secret life. Here’s a look at his personal life and wife.

John made headlines for his contribution to The Lincoln Project. Amid this, he tried to keep his personal life away from the media. His work was enough to make people want to know him.

“He’s not the consultant who says the press is our enemy,” said Matt David, a fellow consultant who worked with John.

Who is John Weaver?

John Weaver (born around 1959) is an American political consultant best known for his work on the 2000 and 2008 presidential campaigns of John McCain.

In the interim, he worked for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

He was also the chief strategist for Republican John Kasich’s presidential campaign in 2016.

In 2019, he co-founded The Lincoln Project, a super PAC opposed to President Donald Trump’s re-election in 2020.

He resigned from the organization in the summer of 2020 after being accused of online harassment by 21 men and offering personal and professional favors in exchange for sex to at least ten of them.

Who is John Weaver’s wife?

John Weaver is married to Angela Hession. The pair have two children together. Angela had a big role to play when John decided to start his own consulting firm in 2017.

She was a former Rudy Giuliani aide.

After being together for a long time, trouble knocked on his door when investigative journalist Scott Stedman published an article claiming John had sent “sexually suggestive messages to at least 30 young men.”

John broke his silence on the incident and admitted he was at fault. It was also the time when he came out to the world.

“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 said.

He continued, “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.”

Early life and education

Weaver is a Kermit, Texas native who attended Texas A&M University and worked at The Battalion, the student newspaper.

The Lincoln Project Statement

The Lincoln Project decided to release an official statement regarding John.

“John Weaver led a secret life that was built on a foundation of deception at every level. He is a predator, a liar, and an abuser.

We extend our deepest sympathies to those who were targeted by his deplorable and predatory behavior,” he said.

The statement continued, “We are disgusted and outraged that someone in a position of power and trust would use it for these means.

The totality of these deceptions are beyond anything any of us could have imagined and we are absolutely shocked and sickened by it.”

“Like so many, we have been betrayed and deceived by John Weaver.

We are grateful beyond words that at no time was John Weaver in the physical presence of any of the members of The Lincoln Project,” the statement concluded.
