Perhaps the word came to her mind because he could reach down and bend and shape not only American culture from the silver screen but shape and twist careers too. But Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator. Given the party's competitive collapse over the last eight years, it's a crisis that requires more alacrity and skill than either Clinton or Obama showed over the last week. Now, Chapman is calling it quits.
Earlier Tuesday, former president Barack Obama said he was "disgusted" by the allegations and that the nation should "celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories".
Speaking of disposing of Weinstein's contributions, Democrats have even managed to fumble that. Meantime, Weinstein has left for Europe to undergo treatment at a rehab center, his representative confirmed to CNN.
He added: "He has proven himself to be a world class liar and now rather than seeking help he is looking to blame others".
It comes back to that: Weinstein's liberal media connections, his political connections, his power, his celebrity virtue-signaling defenders.
Gutierrez is now one of 17 women coming out publicly, including Mira Sorvino, Gweneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, claiming they were sexually harassed or sexually assaulted by Weinstein.
She said in a lengthy Instagram post that Weinstein brought up sexual subjects during more than one business meeting and also tried to get her to kiss a woman in front of him.
Crew recounted the incident in 16 separate tweets, alleging that a Hollywood executive who isn't Weinstein once approached him and his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, at a public event and "groped [his] privates".
But before the Harvey Weinstein movie wins an Oscar, I need to apologize to medieval jesters for comparing them to Hollywood types. There were accounts of harassment from Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette and others too.
"The DCCC has already cut the check to donate all old Harvey Weinstein money to Futures Without Violence", DCCC spokeswoman Meredith Kelly said in a statement Tuesday night. She adds that Weinstein was screaming profanity that cannot be printed here.
Crowe has not commented on the issue. Former actress and screenwriter Louisette Geiss described a similar incident involving Weinstein that occurred in 2008. "We discussed the possibility of a separation and I encouraged her to do what was in her heart". So who said Hollywood irony was dead? Geiss, who also appeared on "GMA", said she wanted to come forward sooner. If he was still getting five to 10 Oscar nominations a year or ruling the Oscars, would this have happened? "Georgina and I have talked about this at length", Weinstein told Page Six at the time. "I have chosen to leave my husband".
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". They shelved the Weinstein bits, although with Gal Gadot of "Wonder Woman" as guest star, it would have been easy to do a "Harvey Weinstein Among the Amazons" skit, with plenty of screaming. When asked how he feels about it, he said, "I don't know what to say".
