Could Clintons and Democrats have handled the Weinstein scandal any worse — WaPo”

"The Academy finds the conduct described in the allegations against Harvey Weinstein to be repugnant, abhorrent, and antithetical to the high standards of the Academy and the creative community it represents". "Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status".

According to the outlet, Harvey is adamant his contract states there must be new allegations and a specific mediation based on those claims in order for him to be fired, and his lawyer has called the board of the company to highlight this. They married in 2007 and have two children together. He also said Weinstein and his team are planning to file a lawsuit, with any proceeds being donated to women's organizations.

In a statement released by his spokesperson, Weinstein said, "I support her decision, I am in counseling and perhaps, when I am better, we can rebuild". "Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time".

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee confirmed it has received $23,225 from Weinstein in four separate donations since 1993. "We discussed the possibility of a separation and I encouraged her to do what was in her heart".

After Chapman, 41, announced she was leaving him Tuesday night following a series of allegations of rape and sexual assault against him by actresses, Weinstein sounded sad and shell-shocked when he spoke to Page Six shortly after. I have chosen to leave my husband.

Streep and several others have now properly denounced Weinstein as disgusting, and his pet Democrats, like Hillary Clinton and the Obamas, have finally come out with belated, safe statements of condemnation.

"Well, there's no one to give it back to".

Weinstein is flying to a rehab center in Europe to seek treatment for sex addiction, TMZ reported on Tuesday evening.

The Times denies this, and an editor suggested that Waxman did not have the story nailed down.

The DCCC donation is going to a San Francisco-based group that has campaigned to end domestic violence around the world. "It was something that was just intolerable in every way", Clinton began.

The actor said being a father to daughter, he was disgusted by the revelations against Weinstein and if he knew about it, he would have tried to stop it.

"Back then, Harvey could spin - or suppress - anything; there were so many journalists on his payroll, working as consultants on movie projects, or as screenwriters, or for his magazine". "Here's the thing: They want to work".

So all of the Democrats' leaders from the past decade or more have fumbled their crisis response.
