‘Never Trump’ Political Strategist Caught Attempting to Rape Underage Boy

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Republican political operative Joel Searby, who has dedicated the last eight years to stopping Donald Trump, has been arrested and charged with attempting to meet and molest a young boy.

Searby is a political consultant who ran Evan McMullin’s independent 2016 campaign for president in a desperate effort by “Never Trumpers” to derail Donald Trump’s campaign. Searby has also been working with the Lincoln Project’s Rick Wilson to keep Trump out of office in 2024.

According to the arrest report, Searby contacted the 15-year-old boy using the messaging app Snapchat, a popular platform for teenagers, according to the Alachua Chronicle.

Authorities reported that Searby sent explicit photographs to a young boy, described sexual encounters, and inquired if the boy “had ever had a crush on an older man.”

Searby later attempted to arrange a secret meeting with the fifteen-year-old.

After receiving reports about the messages, law enforcement officials contacted the 15-year-old. Following discussions with the boy, authorities executed a search warrant at Searby’s residence. Searby was subsequently arrested and charged with lewd/lascivious conduct, two counts of obscene communication related to luring a minor to meet him for sex, and using a two-way communications device to facilitate a felony.

Searby’s is far from the only predator exposed within the NeverTrump community.

John Weaver, founder of the Lincoln Project, previously faced allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior toward young men, as reported by the New York Times.

Twenty-one young men and boys, as young as 14-year-old, accused Weaver of sending them unsolicited sexual messages.

Weaver apologized, stating, “To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry. They were inappropriate, and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought upon you,” according to Axios.

This news emerged shortly after Michael Knaapen, the head of the Maryland Democratic Party’s LGBTQ+ Diversity Leadership Council, was caught on video in a disturbing child predator sting by the vigilante group Predator Poachers.

Knaapen had also attempted to meet secretly with an underage boy.
