Sexual Predator Harvey Weinstein Donated Nearly $600,000 to Democrats

(Washington Free Beacon) Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer who is facing numerous accusations of sexual harassment, has given hundreds of thousands to Democratic campaigns and committees since the early 2000s, a review of federal election filings show.

The New York Times reported Thursday that Weinstein has paid settlements to eight different women stemming from sexual harassment allegations. Many more women had said they were harassed but did not receive a settlement.

Weinstein—who has been politically active for decades, backing a number of big name Democrats—has poured hundreds of thousands into campaigns and committees that include the likes of former President Barack Obama and failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Weinstein has hosted numerous fundraisers for Obama and Clinton, with celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Matthew Broderick attending glitzy events for Clinton this past election cycle.

Weinstein owns a home next door to a $50,000-a-week vacation home the Clintons previously rented, and he has maxed out donations ($5,400) to Clinton’s failed presidential campaign while adding more than $30,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee between Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and more than 30 state Democratic parties.

He has also given at least $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

Weinstein gave $5,000 in donations to Obama’s 2012 campaign, with another $66,000 going to his victory fund.

The campaigns of a number of Democratic senators have also recently received Weinstein’s cash…

    Nice guy! The true essence of a modern day democrat. Now what will happen is eithe 2 things.
    1>Depending on how there really feel about this scumbag. They will gang up on him. 20-30 women will come out of the woodwork saying he raped them.
    Or
    The Hollywood elite will bury it, and you might hear a little bit about it. Then it will just disappear.
    I am sure arrangements are being negotiated as I write this.
    Gotta love this Hollywood cesspool!

    • Frank Budz

      It’s not just a Hollywood cesspool, it’s called the Democratic party. Racists, bigots and everything they call Republicians. If they blame Republicians, you can guarantee that it is them that are guilty of it.

      • Naval Lint

        What you mention is a recognized syptom of mental instability known as “projection”. It’s one of many symptoms that are common to liberal derangment, along with reality denial, cognitive dissonance, deflection and general self-disgust.

          You are being very unkind to Heir Trump.

            Is that ignorance intended to be an insult?

    • James Rothwell

      there has been plenty of misconduct in airport bathrooms or adulterous affairs with interns by many Republicans——and Democrats—-but holier than than reporting is really hypocritical

      @Rolpho Signetti

      Puleeze! Save your scurrilous comments about the Hollywood “cesspool”. This repugnant behavior is, unfortunately, not exclusive to any political party or religious affiliation, but is rather the true essence of older, privileged, mostly white and too frequently Bible-thumping Christian guys.

      Hollywood elite? Is that Bill O’Reilly’s territory? Or the home place of good-friend-of-Donald Trump Roger Ailes? I have no idea of Bill Cosby’s voting practices, but we all know about his behavior with women. And there is so much homosexual behavior among this nasty crowd I wouldn’t even know where to start reciting chapter and verse of which particular Congresspersons have been caught with their pants down in public toilets.

      And, surely we dare not fail to mention the notorious thrice-married P__sy Grabber who now sits in the Oval Office?

  • SilverSnake

    Wow! Two democratic sexual predators Wiener and Weinstein in the news. Their party must be so proud.

    • AKLady

      How long do you thini it will take for the Democrats to catch up with the Republicans?

      • Arlette_S

        @AKLady –

        I think it will take longer than the Republican party will last after the Tea Party, McConnell and Ryan, et al, and of course, the Tweeter-in-Chief have finished disgracing our values, our traditions, our Constitution, and our once prime position in the world.

        • AKLady

          Clinton could not keep his pants zipped.
          Trump cannot keep his mouth zipped.
          Trump cannot keep his pants zipped, but is careful.
          Hillary lied about something unimportant.
          Trump committed fraud-twice and
          was caught racially discriminating – twice.

  • Sharon Melvin

    Another Hollywood elite scumbag!

  • Peter J

    Tells me that the Democrats are predators as well. They are without morals and prey on the ignorant, the uneducated, the illegals and the brain dead university students that think they and their liberal professors are the intellectual elite but in fact they are close minded intellectual paupers.

    • Bruce Jenkins

      They have certainly preyed on the American people for years. They spent trillions and what do we have to show for it? Adam and Steve can get married.

      • AKLady

        You mean like Bush and his wars?
        You mean like the Bush and their ties to the Saudi royalty?

        @Bruce Jenkins, Peter J, Gary von Nelda and the rest of the Trump Fans —

        True conservatives, life-long Republicans, people with real understanding of government and public service are tearing their hair out at the gang of ignoramuses who put Trump into the Oval Office. You can make all the snarky, insulting and fact-free remarks you like about liberals, Democrats, and everyone else who hasn’t swallowed the 1,000 and one lies that continue to flow from the mouth of the Reality Show buffoon you elected.

        The fact is, yes, he has emptied the swamp — and now the loathsome creatures have crawled out of the muck right into the West Wing.
        Will you never wake up to the fact that this grifter and his family and close associates are making money hand over fist while our country sinks lower and lower in world opinion? Do you think Trump will make life easier for the working and middle classes? Will you still cling to your fiercely independent “I don’t need no stinkin’ government to help me” beliefs when it’s YOUR town, not Puerto Rico, that is ravaged by a natural disaster? Will you be delighted when you get that billion dollar wall to keep out immigrants and you discover that there is no money to educate your kids, care for the elderly, or pay for badly needed infrastructure?

        Good luck!

    This pervert obviously felt at home in the democratic party that worships the ground that sexual abuser of women, Bill Clinton and by extension Hillary as head of Bills Bimbo Eruption Squad also participated in. “Birds of a feather flock together.” lee1233

    Strong anti-abortion Republican Congressman Tim Murphy asked his girlfriend to have an abortion.

    So what does either of these articles have to do with Democrats or Republicans? Nothing, of course, but look at the ignorant comments, below. All hysterical outrage about Democrats. Really sad.

  • Wayne The Seine

    I wonder if he belongs to the Democrat Pizza Club?

  • Phyllisrgarber

    Anti-abortion, Republican, Tim Murphy wants girlfriend to have abortion. So?

  • ja ko

    Despite strongest moral and legal support from “virtuous” hypocritical Democrat supporters, it looks like he is the very first Hollywood satanist pedophile network member to be taken down.
