WASHINGTON — Lincoln Project co-founder George Conway called for an investigation into the organization on Tuesday in the wake of a mounting sexual harassment scandal, tweeting: “THE LYING HAS TO STOP.”
Conway sought to put distance between himself and reports that the leaders of the anti-Trump Republican PAC knew about sexual harassment allegations against ousted co-founder John Weaver as early as last June before they first emerged in media reports last month.
“An investigation is necessary. But it has to be thorough, and not a whitewash. And—THE LYING HAS TO STOP,” Conway wrote in a Tuesday tweet.
“It’s clear now that, as early last *MARCH*, the people who were in operational control of the Lincoln Project were told of Weaver’s predations. Enough is enough. LP needs to waive the NDAs and come clean,” he said.
