Karl Rove Reveals Knowledge of Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver’s Predatory Behavior Since 1980s


Karl Rove revealed he’s been aware of allegations of Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver harassing young men since 1988.
Rove, a former Deputy Chief of Staff in the George W. Bush White House, informed Martha MacCallum of his knowledge  during a Fox News interview.

“You mentioned this back in 2004, that this was a concern of yours,” MacCallum inquired, referencing an Atlantic story that described Rove spreading a “rumor that Weaver had made a pass at a young man at a state Republican function.” At the time, the paper referred to the claim as a “lie.”

Rove responded to MacCallum, adding “I’ve actually know about this pattern of behavior since 1988.”

”All I want to say is that the 21 statements from those 21 young men that talked about how they were approached by Mr. Weaver — that statement speaks for itself. I don’t have anything to add to it. It’s a sad, sad, chapter,” he added.
