The Anti-Trump ‘Republican’ SuperPac who recently has the Hashtag #LincolnVoter trending on Twitter my not be a group of disaffected Republicans at all. On closer inspection, the founders are a group of Democratic Strategists and one Registered Russian Agent who are not just working to get Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden elected for the presidency, they are also going after congressional Republicans in support of their Democratic opponents.
A new study reveals that the recent influx on cash, to the tune of $19.4M, has been used to send cash to Public Relations Firms that are working for Democratic Candidates. Not only that, they are spending large sums of money producing Radio and Television commercials to get Republican candidates for congress removed.
Additionally, a few of them have household name recognition like well known George Conway and American Attorney who spends most of his time blasting President Trump on Twitter but also attacking Republican policies and politicians.
Another individual, John Weaver, that isn’t as well known has been identified as a Registered Russian Agent because of six figure deal with uranium conglomerate TENEX.
So, when most Americans who see the hashtag “Lincoln Voter” they think that the organization is a back to Republican or Reagan values group but has been exposed as a group that has duped voters for cash and has been secretly and in the light of day supporting Democrats to Flip the Senate and Keep the House of Representatives in Speaker Pelosi control. The group wants to insure that Biden is elected, but if he is not, be able to block Trumps Supreme Court nominations.
Since its inception last November — announced with a blistering New York Times op-ed — the brainchild of George Conway, Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson and John Weaver has raked in more than $19.4 million, according to FEC filings, and has needled President Trump repeatedly with provocative TV ads.
But the group — which the National Review on Monday dubbed “The Grifter Project” and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) last week dismissed as a “cabal of political consultants all in it for the money” — don’t exactly practice what they preach.

Communication Directer for the Lincoln Project who coined the term Lincoln Voter to mislead contributors and those on social media is no disaffected Republican, his last job was Mike Bloombergs bid for the Democratic Preisdential Nomination and now works in New York for a state Democrat leader
But the project is a scam — little more than the most brazen election-season grift in recent memory. And it is working. As the ragtag band of three otherwise unemployed strategists plus one lawyer hoped, the allure of Republican-on-Republican violence has proven irresistible to the MSNBC set. Per their most recent FEC filing, the group has raised $19.4 million since its inception this past November.
The gap between the group’s rhetoric and its actions is enormous. The Times op-ed declared that “national Republicans have done far worse than simply march along to Mr. Trump’s beat. Their defense of him is imbued with an ugliness, a meanness and a willingness to attack and slander those who have shed blood for our country, who have dedicated their lives and careers to its defense and its security, and whose job is to preserve the nation’s status as a beacon of hope.” And yet the group’s focus thus far has been on vulnerable Senate Republicans, notably the moderate Susan Collins and the mainstream Cory Gardner, who haven’t exhibited any such behavior. Neither has Joni Ernst, another target.
The Lincoln Project’s ads don’t attack these GOP senators for supporting profligate federal spending, contributing to explosive debt, or enabling feckless foreign policy, nor do they bash President Trump for his incoherent trade policy or his failure to tame an ascendant administrative state. Rather, they attack Republicans from the left, in terms that please the Lincoln Project’s predominantly progressive funders. Rarely, across dozens of ads, is a political principle recognizable to anyone as center-right to be found. Is the Lincoln Project aware of who Abraham Lincoln was?
That most spots sound instead like Democratic boilerplate — the type of partisan schlock a Democratic candidate might run against a GOP opponent in a D+5 district — may go some way to explaining where the Lincoln Project is coming from. One ad slams North Carolina senator Thom Tillis for proposed cuts to federal education funding and Obamacare while claiming he supports putting “kids in cages.” Another sandbags Colorado’s Cory Gardner for siding with Trump on health care and the environment. Yet another lectures Susan Collins that she works “for Maine, not Mitch McConnell.” In an ad assailing the Senate majority leader, the group dubs him “Rich Mitch” and smears him as someone who has used his office to accumulate wealth (ignoring that most of McConnell’s wealth comes from his wife, Elaine Chao, not from anything he did during his time as a senator). – Read More at The National Review
Some of the members of the cast of characters at the Lincoln Project tell Lincoln Voters that Donald Trump is a huge tax fraud, but seem to be in tax situations themselves. These disaffected voters may not be voters at all. One of the other members of these fake Republicans hasn’t actually voted in a very long time
Lincoln Project founder Wilson also has an interesting financial past. According to IRS documents, the GOP strategist has an outstanding $389,420 federal tax lien against his Tallahassee, Florida, home, and his bank moved to foreclose on the property in 2016.
Wilson, a best-selling author with 1 million Twitter followers, has never disclosed the money woes publicly, allowing him to sneer online about Trump’s decision never to release his own taxes — at one point calling him “Brokeahontas,” despite the fact that American Express had taken Wilson to court for his own unpaid $25,729 credit card bill the year before, documents show.
“It’s very clear that this isn’t about Trump and Republicans,” one GOP source told The Post. “It’s about making money to help pay off their massive personal debts.”
Voter records on the Utah Lieutenant Governor’s website also show veteran Republican strategist Schmidt, another Lincoln Project boss, hasn’t recently voted himself — with his home state listing him as an “inactive voter.”
