Hollywood is reeling from a New York Times expose that revealed the decades long sexual harassment by leftwing movie mogul Harvey Weinstein:
The New York Times reported that Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and/or unwanted physical contact by numerous people who worked with him over the past three decades or so.
The newspaper also reported that at least seven such women reached financial settlements with Weinstein over their claims.
Some of the claims are really salacious:
A bombshell investigation by The New York Times reveals that Weinstein once asked Ashley Judd if she would like to watch him shower during a meeting in his room at the Peninsula Beverly Hills and paid $100,000 to Rose McGowan for an unknown incident shortly after she filmed her breakthrough role in the film ‘Scream.’
That settlement is one of eight that Weinstein has reportedly paid out over the past 30 years, with Italian model Ambra Battilana also getting an undisclosed sum in 2015 after accusing the Hollywood executive of groping her and putting his hand under her skirt.
It was also inside his room at the Peninsula Beverly Hills where Weinsten allegedly stripped naked and forced a female employee to give a massage.
Dang. You’d think after paying out a few times he’d figure out to hire hookers or something. Sheesh.
Hollywood is shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!! that such things are going on in the liberal enclave of enlightened mortals. How many of these a-holes delighted in the sexual harassment claims at Fox News but secretly knew all about these stories and ignored them you think?
I’m going with “a lot.”

Laugh all you want at us Red State flyover rubes, Hollywood. We didn't have to blow Harvey Weinstein or Joss Whedon to get our jobs.— Sifty: Funsurgent 🚁🇺🇸 (@siftyboones) October 5, 2017
Dems: Pence's commitment to remain faithful to his wife is creepy, and actually, Harvey Weinstein is good— Comfortably Smug (@ComfortablySmug) October 5, 2017
So I guess now Harvey Weinstein can officially run for office as a Democrat— Sean Spicier (@sean_spicier) October 5, 2017
Of course, Weinstein is a big-time Democrat. In fact, at one time he hired…. Malia Obama.
Weinstein released a BIZARRE statement after the news broke:
