After five days of silence, Hillary Clinton finally weighs in on the Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein sex scandal. Through her spokesperson Nick Merrill, she said:
"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior."
Weinstein, who has donated heavily to the Democratic Party, has had ties with the Clintons since Bill Clinton's presidency. According to CNN:
Weinstein is a longtime associate of the Clintons and a major Democratic Party donor who bundled funds for their political campaigns.
Many Democratic office holders quickly repudiated Weinstein, with some going so far as to send donations given by Weinstein to charity. But Clinton's statement makes no mention of Weinstein's sizable donations to her own war chest...
In 2015, the Clintons rented a home next to Weinstein in the Hamptons, and Weinstein served as a connector between Hollywood stars and Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign.
