Just another case of “he said/she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said.”

Well, maybe there is some truth to these allegations, now that so many women have come forward. But you know, let’s not rush to judgement or anything, cause that is worse than any crime committed against women (or men). /s

There sure is something fishy about all these women coming forward NOW, when they are likely to be believed, instead of coming forward years ago, when they would have been slut-shamed and blacklisted and likely sued for defamation.

And his cell-mate is a guy that wakes him every morning by saying, “Hey Harvey! Remember when you had it all?”

Highly doubt he will get “life”. Though if he did get 10 yrs, that might end up being “life”.

I hope the publicity associated with his trial and sentencing can revitalize the #metoo movement.

It’s so hard for even very worthy causes to keep the attention they deserve when ⊥rump is sucking all the oxygen out of the room.

He now has all the qualifications to work for the Trump administration. When’s his pardon? /s

Let’s hope he gets Roman Polanski as his cell mate.

Not that I’m complaining about it, but I do not understand why this rapist didn’t leave the country for a non-extradition destination when things started moving in this direction. Like sometime upthread said, he even had the blueprint with Polanski.

He also had decades of precedent suggesting he’d never really be held accountable for his actions.

Glad it’s looking like he gambled wrong.

The new indictment accuses Weinstein of forcibly performing oral sex on a woman in July 2006.

Darn the luck. If only it had been Xenia Onatopp from Goldeneye.

If you haven’t seen it, she’s a nice lady who kills men by crushing their skulls between her thighs.

He has money.

If it ever goes to trial, he will either get off completely, or take a plea bargain for something like “simple assault” along with some sort of token fine, and maybe a few months of probation.
