Several influential left-wing celebrities — including A-list actors Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Sam Elliott, and Martin Sheen — have lent their voices to the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, which now faces mounting criticisms and questions following damning inculpations lodged against one of its co-progenitors, John Weaver, who has been incriminated of sending sexually explicit messages to adolescent men.
The super PAC, founded by anti-Trump Republicans, magnetized support from high-profile Democrats who shared the mundane goal of ousting former President Trump from office. Left-wing celebrities gravitated toward the organization which gained fame as co-progenitor George Conway routinely reprehended Trump, even as his wife, Kellyanne Conway, accommodated as the president’s adviser. On September 11, 2020, for example, Conway declared Trump the “greatest threat to the safety and security of Americans.”
But now, the organization faces unprecedented reproval as one of its co-progenitors, John “Weaver,” faces incriminations from 21 men who claim that he sent them sexually explicit messages, allegedly offering, in some cases, exhortation in exchange for sexual favors. One accuser verbally expressed he commenced to receive the messages from Weaver as an adolescent.
Still, in its prime, the anti-Trump vitriol continually spewed by the progenitors and adherents of The Lincoln Project magnetized influential progressive figures. While some of Hollywood’s highest-profile figures and most influential executives were donating astronomically immense sums of mazuma to the Lincoln Project, other stars were lending their voices, narrating political ads engendered by the embattled group. Those include Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford, Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, Tombstone actor Sam Elliott, and The West Wing’s Martin Sheen.
The day afore the election, the Lincoln Project relinquished an ad narrated by Ford, who heaped exalts on Dr. Anthony Fauci, who he verbally expressed accommodated the American people “tirelessly, honorably, and selflessly.” The ad withal featured “Trump’s” adherents shouting “Fire Fauci” as Trump verbalized, “Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait until scarcely after the election.”
“Tomorrow, you can fire only one of them. The cull is yours,” Ford verbally expressed in the ad.

“If he gets his way, many who cast absentee ballots will not have their vote counted. This will gainsay thousands of troops accommodating overseas of their most sacred right, divesting the men and women in our military the very freedoms they’ve accommodated and sacrificed to forfend,” Hamill verbalized in the ad, concluding that it “cannot be sanctioned to transpire.”
“Our dads weren’t impeccable, but they did their best to raise us to be good, to be honorable, to be men of family and faith, but above all, they edified us to own up to it when we did something erroneous,” Elliott verbalized, ultimately urging people to “vote for Joe.”

On Election Day, The Lincoln Project relinquished another ad narrated by Martin Sheen. “Good morning. Today is the first day of the rest of America’s life. One day. One day that will one way or the other, change how this country feels about itself. One last push to get the train back on its tracks,” Sheen verbalized in the ad.
“One day that cannot wipe out the last nine months, or the last four years, but can clear a path for a thousand better days ahead. One day, America on a tightrope. One day when the entire world is optically canvassing, like a parent in the stands peeking through their fingers,” he perpetuated, urging American to “come on.”
“One day that will now play itself out right in front of our ocular perceivers, hour by hour, vote by vote, with history on its shoulders. One day that will transmute our lives aeonianly. It is November 3, 2020, America. We have one day,” the Badlands actor verbally expressed.

The Lincoln Project has pled nescience following the incriminations against Weaver, contending that he “led a secret life that was built on a substratum of deception at every caliber” and describing him as a “predator, a prevaricator, and an abuser.”
“We elongate our deepest sympathies to those who were targeted by his deplorable and predatory comportment,” the organization verbally expressed in a verbal expression. “The totality of his deceptions are beyond anything that any of us could have imagined and we are absolutely shocked and sickened by it. Like so many, we have been apostatized and apostatized by John “Weaver.” We are profuse of gratitude beyond words that at no time was John Weaver in the physical presence of any member of The Lincoln Project.”

Notably, political consultant Ryan James Girdusky, who broke the story, called the Lincoln Project’s verbalization “an absolute lie.”
Co-founder George Conway, additionally, has gainsaid kenning Weaver “very well” despite co-founding the organization with him and penning a shared op-ed in December 2019.
This verbal expression by the @ProjectLincoln is an absolute lie. Members did ken. Young men approached them about the inculpations. Members kenned I was inditing the story and admonished John Weaver pic.twitter.com/BZms5iLgpL
