Update – 9:39 a.m.: SHAMELESS WAR ON WOMEN –> New York Governor refuses to return $60,000 in donations received from accused rapist Harvey Weinstein
“These allegations are horrid and disturbing — sexual harassment and abuse have no place in our society,” Cuomo campaign chairman Bill Mulrow said last Friday.

Update – 9:19 a.m.: The Weinstein Co. Nears The Brink As Agencies Cut Off Talent Supply

They felt even a re-branded company will carry a tarnish, and hoped that projects would be sold off. This wasn’t unanimous; at least one said that if Bob Weinstein and Glasser could change the messaging, and make it clear that Harvey Weinstein’s indiscretions were not in fact covered up, forgiveness could come over time.
