I thought maybe we could consolidate the Weinstein, Moore, Spacey, etc. discussions.



edited to add:

NYT article keeping a running track of the high-profile sexual misconduct allegations from Weinstein going forward:

Those clips always make me wonder whether it was really a bad thing that I drifted away from TV in the Aughts.

Almost none of Arrested Development works in context-free clips. They sometimes put bits of the setup for a joke into two or three episodes before the payoff.

Which I belatedly realized in the other thread.

(Not that it stops the clips. The only one that I've seen that actually worked by itself was the "analrapist" one.)

There's a new accusation against Moore. A woman who engaged his services as a lawyer to have her mother designated her son's legal guardian claims that Moore grabbed her ass. She was in her late 20s. This is the first allegation of impropriety by Moore after he was married.

Yet more Moore allegations:

He is alleged to have called a girl at her high school to follow up for a date.

Also, DC comics has fired one of their editors for harassment.

Kevin Spacey is up to 15 accusers.

I think we need a round-up just for Moore. How many accusations actually involve adult victims? :P

Berganza had been a thing for DC for awhile. They'd given him the Superman books and actually kept any women from working on those titles, so that he wouldn't get into any trouble.

You're hoping, or have there been rumors and innuendos, db?

There have long been allegations:

He appears to be a bisexual and child rapist.

Thanks. Brett Ratner has also been accused of harassment and general assholery.

This, I expect a sideshow, maybe censures, followed by re-elections.

Roy Moore probably hates people who lack a shopping agenda.

Maybe he was secant help finding the hypotenuse. He thought he'd be able to find it if he could get her in his unit circle without going off on a tangent. He always got a girl's mother to cosine his wooing activities.
