WAR ON WOMEN UPDATE: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein.

Two decades ago, the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein invited Ashley Judd to the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for what the young actress expected to be a business breakfast meeting. Instead, he had her sent up to his room, where he appeared in a bathrobe and asked if he could give her a massage or she could watch him shower, she recalled in an interview.

“How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?” Ms. Judd said she remembers thinking.

Why are Democrat-monopoly institutions such cesspits of sexual predation?

UPDATE: Weinstein (likely via his damage control team) issues hilariously self-serving statement to the New York Times, which begins with “I came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then,” before concluding, “I am going to need a place to channel that anger so I’ve decided that I’m going to give the NRA my full attention. I hope Wayne LaPierre will enjoy his retirement party.”

Or as Sonny Bunch writes at the Washington Free Beacon, “Shorter Harvey Weinstein: ‘I’m a Liberal, Maybe Gimme a Pass?’”

“Should be interesting to which Hollywood stars who rightly criticized Bill O’Reilly + Fox suddenly go silent on Harvey Weinstein,” one Twitter user writes in response.

Twitchy notes however that “Weinstein can’t technically give the NRA his full attention … because he’s also gotta sue the New York Times.”

Pass the popcorn.
