Hollywood Rocked by Weinstein Sexual Harassment Scandal
The Hollywood hills have eyes. The New York Times has published an exposé claiming that producer and studio executive Harvey Weinstein has a nearly three-decade history of sexual harassment accusations, including eight legal settlements. Among his alleged targets were Ashley Judd, who’s gone on the record about her experience, and Rose McGowan, who got a $100,000 settlement from Weinstein in 1997. He’s denied many of the allegations, apologized, taken a leave of absence and sworn to sue The Times — while Republicans called for Democrats to return Weinstein’s generous campaign contributions.
