    The thing else the men and women in Hollywood knew what was going on, it was no secret. As a kid I knw ew what 'the casting couch' meant.

    They made a moral choice to keep quite and make money. To hell with all their sudden outrage. Wait, what sudden outrage? Hollywood has been largely silent.

    Should this lawyer be disbarred, jailed or even executed for this closing argument?

    Harvey Weinstein's lawyer during closing arguments: “In their universe, women are not responsible for the parties they attend, the men they flirt with, the hotel room invitations, the plane tickets they expect, the jobs they hope to obtain"

    Harvey Weinstein Found Guilty In Rape Trial

    Former film mogul Harvey Weinstein, whose many accusers spurred the Me Too era with their public allegations of rampant sexual misconduct by him, was found guilty Monday on two charges ― a criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree.

    However, the jury panel consisting of five women and seven men notably found him not guilty on the two most serious charges of predatory sexual assault.

    The trial represented a milestone in the Me Too era, spanning six weeks of often emotional witness testimony and grueling cross-examination.

    Weinstein, 67, pleaded not guilty to the five charges he faced, which stemmed from two incidents: Onetime aspiring actor Jessica Mann said Weinstein raped her in 2013, and former production assistant Miriam “Mimi” Haleyi said he sexually assaulted her in 2006. Several other women, including former “Sopranos” actor Annabella Sciorra, also took the stand to demonstrate a pattern of misbehavior.

    Weinstein can’t be the only one. I hope this isn’t the end of it.

    I saw 23; I believe 27 was the longest sentence the judge could have issued.

    Yup, 23.

    More charges may be on the way in L.A. and from the feds for trafficking.
