There’s some new information on the Lincoln Project sex-harassment scandal.
The super PAC has retained the law firm of Paul Hastings to investigate allegations of inappropriate behavior by John Weaver as part of a broader review of the organization’s operations and culture.
Some reports have called LP leadership out for knowing about and ignoring at least some of Weaver's inappropriate behavior, although the group has denied that.
The review process is currently under way.
The group also said it is releasing staff and former staff from the confidentiality provisions in their employment agreements “to discuss their workplace environment. Based on the findings of this review, we will take all necessary action to correct any issues or deficiencies that are identified.”
The group also says it is working with outside counsel and professional consultants to improve corporate governance, finance and operational structure, human resources and leadership.
At least for now, the LP says its full steam ahead with the production of its content while the reviews are being conducted.
