    I'd have to find out more. This is the first I've heard of anything about him. If he had enablers, which most harassers do, they of course deserve scorn too.

    From the OP:

    Given the number of lawsuits that the company has settled over the years there is of course a chance that some of these women cannot speak because they signed a NDA or do not want to speak on account of their own personal experiences.
    If they are contractually prohibited from voicing their opinion, then speaking out would not only expose them to litigation - but they could wind up being blackballed.
    Thanks from Blueneck, Blues63, Madeline and 2 others

    Exploitation and abuse of women by wealthy and powerful men. Gee, that sounds familiar...

    I think most people look the other way in these situations for any number of reasons, but the bottom line is if people want something bad enough, they'll often put up with almost anything to get it.

    Sad, but it's fairly commonplace for men to think they have the right to do this shit when they've got the power.

    It's not a left or right thing, it's a powerful man thing.

    Don't you love this? The news just came out for most of us, and now people are being condemned for not speaking out against it on another thread, and suggesting the left condones this reprehensible behaviour.

    Now it is in the open, this guy will get his just rewards if the evidence supports the claims. But for fuck's sake! Some of the claims flying around here are beyond absurd.

    Like Woody Allen and Joss Whedon got theirs? Like Donald Trump got his?

    Harvey Weinsteins high profile lawyer/advisor just bailed out.

    Lisa Bloom couldn't take it any more.

    Maybe Harvey sexually harassed her...
