DCCC to donate all Harvey Weinstein donations to women's group

"I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did", Jolie, 42, told the newspaper. Meantime, the group behind the Oscars - the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - has publicly condemned Weinstein and says its board of governors will meet this weekend to discuss any actions warranted by the Academy.

Waxman said her piece revolved around an executive at the Italian branch of Miramax who had supposedly been paid just to facilitate Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. But Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator.Hollywood is not the only business where this happens, and to the casualties of this behaviour- you are not alone. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, have announced plans to donate his campaign contributions to charities.

But both Clinton and the DNC are doing it wrong.

The DNC's response is a real head-scratcher.

A dispute between movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and his daughter prompted police to respond to a Los Angeles home on Wednesday, LAPD confirmed. The third, Higher Heights, is technically nonpartisan, but since it supports African American women running for office, you can bet that the vast majority of that money will help Democrats. He was someone who could do wonders for their careers, if only they would submit and serve his appetites.

Let's not let Barack Obama off the hook, either. All victims of sexual abuse contend with immense guilt and shame, but the stigma choking male victims into silence is a unique, suppressive power. "There have been other people who have had allegations against them, but if you're still powerful, it's hard to take them down".

The harassment and assault allegations surrounding Weinstein were an open secret in Hollywood, and to many entertainment reporters, Froelich says. All these guys know each other.

It's a demonstration of stunning political incompetence.

Despite Crews being more-than capable of physically matching this person, and with the added witness of his wife, he did not physically protect himself, nor did he go fully public with what happened. "It was something that was just intolerable in every way", Clinton began.

That is a big problem for the Democratic Party. Weinstein's wife of 10 years, Georgina Chapman, initially stood by her husband following the first New York Times article.

They feared him, and they loved him as the fearful and the broken love those with absolute power over them. In recent days the site has featured a blog with live updates on the story; headlines calling out Obama, Clinton and top Democrats for their ties to the producer; and stories attacking other news outlets for failing to cover the scandal with the same ferocity as Breitbart.
