VIDEO: DNC Vice Chair Hypocritically Condemns Sexual Harassment In The Entertainment Industry
The Democratic National Committee still holds almost $300,000 in campaign donations from disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Since the first allegations were made public, both Perez and Ellison have refused to return 100% of the money. Today, Congressman Ellison spotlighted his hypocrisy on this issue by condemning sexual harassment in the entertainment industry:
While Ellison is saying that sexual harassers need to be held accountable for their actions, he apparently has no problem using Weinstein’s money. This hypocrisy becomes even more significant in the wake of another The New Yorker investigation, published yesterday, that describes the extreme lengths Weinstein went to in order to conceal his alleged crimes.
