Hollywood's Weinstein to be Probed
Quote | Reply
A deep, hard and thorough look-see by the Department of Justice, apparently. ;-)

"The move by the DOJ came amid rumors that Weinstein was planning on heading to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears of a Roman Polanski-style situation where he dodges prosecution in the U.S.

However the movie exec appeared to have a last minute change of heart and decided to travel to Arizona for treatment instead at The Meadows center.

That reminds me. I used to own a pristine brown Probe. A Ford Probe. 1989. Great vehicle. Lots of torque and thrust.

I wonder if he realizes how silly his claims of innocence sound while he publicly announces he is going to rehab to 'solve his problem'. And, multiple women are coming forward claiming that, they too, were taken advantage of. What a shithead.

How is this a federal case?

In fairness, how else was this guy gonna score?




Like Rose McGowan and a bunch of the other women involved in this are saying: EVERYONE in Hollywood knew, and almost all of them either tacitly accepted it or willingly participated in it. Fame, power, money? Those are pretty enticing perks for some young ingenue looking to make her Tinseltown dreams come true.

Pay for play, maybe. RICO, possibly. Crossing state lines to effect a crime or engage in a criminal conspiracy. It all depends on what sorts of crimes -- maybe money laundering in paying off a few of his targets? -- DOJ believes he may have violated.

In other words, it's not really a federal case, but the government can probably gin up some federal charges. Interstate commerce or something.

Rule by law.

That's exactly what I said in the other thread. Guy wouldn't have stood a chance of getting laid on his own merits.

In fairness he did have a wife and one of his merits is he is dripping with money. For most that would have been enough. BYW his wife is very beautiful.

In the same manner that PED abuse in sports is.

It is good to see that a right wing guy like you are really worried about women's rights, harassment and aggressive behavior of men.
Many conservatives should follow your example.

But sadly you will find that women's issues often follow political lines.
It is OK that FoxNews guys are sexist, but not liberal, and the other way around.

I am sure you are not hypocritical like that and that you started a lot of discussions regarding RogerA, BillO and other sexist behavior of any person no matter political view.

It could be a civil rights case.

I may have missed it but it appears that he only sexually harassed white women.

What about equal opportunity?

So sexual assault is "juicy gossip" for you.
That is just sad.

It is for me when you start your preaching and pronouncements, which is why you're held in such high esteem around here, apparently. Now shoo, fly!

Most likely. And I don't see Hollywood reforming itself anytime soon, for a fact.
