Perverts of a feather flock together.
During independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s investigation roughly two decades ago into then-President Bill “Slick Willy” Clinton’s adulterous activities, a number of Hollywood figures rushed to his legal defense, including but not limited to one very notable fellow pervert.
Cue a story from The Washington Post published Aug. 22, 1988:
Further details about Clinton’s testimony emerged on the same day that the president’s legal defense fund announced it has raised $2.2 million in the last six months, more than was collected during the previous four years of his presidency combined. The newly reconstituted defense fund, operating with looser rules about who can give and how much they can offer, tapped into resentment against Starr as more than 17,000 Clinton supporters sent money.
Hollywood was quick to come to the president’s aid. Among the 62 donors giving the maximum $10,000 were performers and directors such as Tom Hanks, Barbra Streisand, Michael Douglas, Ron Howard, Norman Lear, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw-Spielberg as well as studio executives Jeffrey Katzenberg, David Geffen, Harvey Weinstein and Bud Yorkin.
Oh, my, my my …
“The connection between the Clintons and the movie mogul who now stands accused of so many sexual assaults continued long after the president’s troubles in the late 1990s,” notes Breitbart. “Indeed, Weinstein was a huge donor and bundler for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.”
What I find even more interesting is how many other men contributed to Clinton’s defense fund, including Tom Hanks, Ron Howard, Norman Lear, etc.
It makes me wonder why they helped him out. Was it purely political, or were they too hoping to keep some cats in the bag, hmm?
