One of the Lincoln Project’s few female founders, has split from the anti-Trump super PAC after making hefty contract demands, the group claimed.
Jennifer Horn had a lofty wish list, including “an immediate ‘signing bonus’ payment of $250,000 and a $40,000 per month consulting contract,” the organization said in a statement posted to Twitter.
On Christmas Eve, Horn “demanded a board seat on the Lincoln Project, a television show, a podcast hosting assignment, and a staff to manage these endeavors,” all of which “were unanimously rejected by the management committee and board.”
She stepped down 48 hours later, the group said.
Horn, a “Never Trump” GOP operative who helped kickstart the organization in 2019, cited a very different reason for her departure: the sexting scandal of Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver, who has been accused of harassing dozens of young men.
“John Weaver’s grotesque and inappropriate behavior, coupled with his longstanding deceptions concerning that behavior, are sickening,” she told The New York Times. “It is clear at this point that my views about how the Lincoln Project’s efforts are managed, and the best way to move the Lincoln Project forward into the future in the wake of these awful events, have diverged.”
Weaver resigned last month amid allegations he sent the men unsolicited, sexually charged messages while dangling career opportunities.
Horn is the former chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party. She did not immediately return a voicemail from The Post.
