The man who served as the great unifying cause for the #MeToo movement just got some more really bad news.
Former Hollywood power broker and accomplished master of the casting couch Harvey Weinstein was just hit with additional criminal sexual assault charges that would end up with him being thrown in the hole for the remainder of his life.
Until late last year, there were few in Tinseltown who could rival the power of Weinstein – a man who Meryl Streep once referred to as God – and whose checkbook was always open to Democrat politicians including such A-list names as Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren was a celebrated ally of the left. But that was before the cauldron of feminist vengeance boiled over due to mounting anger directed at President Trump and Weinstein ended up being engulfed in the flames.
Hey, it’s not like he was a really good guy or anything. His bullying was notorious as were his perversions and predations although it is rarely ever mentioned that many of those women were eager to jump into the sack or hit their knees if it resulted in career advancement.
But horny Harvey’s past caught up with him and he served as a proxy for the POTUS and on Monday, the hammer came down on him again in New York.

Via Deadline Hollywood, “Harvey Weinstein Faces Life In Prison From New Sex Crime Charges By NYC D.A. Involving 3rd Victim”:
Already facing rape and criminal sex act charges and potentially 25 years behind bars, Harvey Weinstein with three additional charges from the Manhattan D.A. that could see him in jail for life.
“A Manhattan Grand Jury has now indicted Harvey Weinstein on some of the most serious sexual offenses that exist under New York’s Penal Law,” said District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. today. “This indictment is the result of the extraordinary courage exhibited by the survivors who have come forward. Our investigation continues. If you are a survivor of the predatory abuse with which Mr. Weinstein is charged, there is still time to pursue justice. Please call us at 212-335-9373.”
Today’s announcement marks an additional count of Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree for a forcible sexual act against a third woman that allegedly occurred in 2006. Joining the two women identified in the previous indictment in late May, the new indictment also includes two counts of Predatory Sexual Assault.
The class A-11 felony predatory charge looms with a potential life sentence, or at least 10-25 years in prison for the disgraced producer. The new criminal sex act charge could result in an additional decade in prison for the Oscar-winning Weinstein if found guilty.
All of that money that Weinstein threw at Democrats was wasted because none of his political friends want anything to do with him now.
