    I remember a few year back Weinstein telling a CNN reporter how he was planning to make a feature movie starring Meryl Streep in which he said "I'm going to bury LaPierre and the NRA" (his words).
    I wonder what happened with his project. Do they have film clubs in prison? Are they doing warden's couch, or top bunk casting? Maybe he'll start a new company and call it "Don't Drop The Soap Productions"?
    Anyhow, I just wish him good luck and hope he's not going to Arkanicide himself.

    He's a disgusting pig for sure. But as usual the real low life scum is the ones that knew about it (and there were plenty including the likes of Hilary Clinton and many others) and didn't have the cojones to do something about it. They are still there laughing and partying and probably some other scum bag will now move into Havey's old position.

    Boy, he is one ugly MFer too isn't he ? Disgusting !

    Weinstein should have hired an attorney with a better record defending and filing joint returns with alleged sexual predators.

    My problem with this conviction is it sets a precedent that someone (likely a woman) and file a sex assault complaint against someone (likely a man), years later, with no physical evidence, with no directly corroborating witness testimony (I don't consider the testimony of other alleged victims, about other untried cases, corroborating), and get a felony conviction, sending the defendant to prison for years, and being permanently branded a sex offender. I think the legal system has bent over backwards, and now too far, in order to deal with the (admitted real) problem of sexual assaults.

    I just wonder when the miracle will happen? As in he will no longer need a walker, cane, assistance but will walk easily.

    While I didn’t follow it on news. I noticed he suddenly needed a walker. I suspect it was a prop. (But don’t know there could be a reason)

    Then there is the decades since whatever happened, maybe happened. I figure a rich, powerful, influential guy without good looks... likely offered trade of help for sex. Which is basically prostitution.
    “I will get you to this party, introduce you to this director, suggest you for part in movie I have influence in if you spend the weekend doing every position I want...”
    The little I heard about “force” was no more then a threat not to pay unless he got to play. Similar to renter who does not have rent. After “I will do anything, don’t evict me”. Landlord says “let’s have sex” She (ok in today’s world HE says no) they get evicted.
    Personally I think Prostitution is wrong. But honestly at times it’s hard to draw a line. Women suffer they sex, marry rich guys for their money.
    To me it’s all about force, control. Any physical force. Instantly it’s wrong.
    If lady has job. Is told have sex with me or fired. Wrong. Offer sex to get a job... questionable.
    I just wonder if I could run for Supreme Court judges what loon they would try to bring up?

    Some info from Weistein's side, that you won't see repeated on CNN:

    https://images.law.com/contrib/content/uploads/documents/389/39573/8.3.18-Weinstein-Motion-003.pdf

    Interesting reading.

    I'm not sure I buy it as anything more than women who stopped getting what they wanted and decided to get revenge, headlines, and a big civil settlement, by telling all. Couldn't help noticing they hired civil attorneys to sue him before they called the police (many years after the alleged crimes).

    You are quite ignorant on this matter he is the darling of the Left.Many people have their picture taken with Trump.
    Hillary took Weinsteins money for years had close personal dealings with him." Hillarys response "we had no Idea"
    Trumps response "I'm not surprised"

    one of them was Honest and its not Hillary.
