In a statement to the NYT on Tuesday, Weinstein's spokesperson, Sallie Hofmeister added: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".
Weinstein was fired on Sunday from his eponymous company, The Weinstein Company, after The New York Times detailed numerous sexual-harassment allegations against him in a bombshell report. Now you can say, "Alexa, what's my flash briefing?" and you will hear that day's episode of "The Daily". "Not only has Hollywood normalized Weinstein's abhorrent treatment of women, they enabled it by doing and saying absolutely nothing". During the investigation, police obtained an audio recording of Weinstein in which he acknowledged that he had groped Gutierrez, the magazine said. So I did, and that's what I said to her. It didn't even make the piece that she wrote. But Hollywood has been run mostly by the same group of middle-aged white men for at least two decades, who have stayed relevant by swapping jobs or forming new companies of their own.
In his newsletter The Ankler, veteran film reporter Richard Rushfield argued that the timing of the allegations against Weinstein isn't a coincidence: "These revelations emerge just at the exact moment that Harvey Grabberhands [sic] is barely in the Oscar race, has no vast pockets of awards budget to blow, no raft of roles to hand out, his legions of foot soldiers a shadow of its once fearsome might". If this scandal expands past Weinstein - and there are already suggestions it might - then the next generation of leadership may have to figure out how to compete without the baggage Hollywood carries. Weinstein's attorney, Charles Harder, says he is preparing to sue The Times. 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.
"This was never going to be about work", she said.
Democrats have hitched their wagons to the arrogant Hollywood moguls and A-list celebrities who continually lecture Americans to adopt their values and way of life. "I had to defend myself". "The final area is whether the company has any liability, and I think it's clear based on recent information that there will be lawsuits not only against Weinstein but against his company as well".
In accounts in the New York Times, the New Yorker and elsewhere, more than 20 women have spoken out against the producer, with allegations including rape, forced oral sex, groping and harassment.
