Gloria Allred is having a tough time with the recent revelation that Democrat fundraiser Harvey Weinstein has a history of sexual harassment against women. It has even caused a rift with her own daughter.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:
Gloria Allred calls out daughter for defending ‘harasser’ Harvey Weinstein
Gloria Allred, the Philadelphia native, Girls High grad, and Penn alum who’s become famous as a defender of women’s rights, is criticizing her daughter, celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom, for working to defend Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein on multiple sexual harassment accusations against him.
“Had I been asked by Mr. Weinstein to represent him, I would have declined, because I do not represent individuals accused of sex harassment,” Allred said in a statement released Thursday.
“I only represent those who allege that they are victims of sexual harassment,” she added.
“While I would not represent Mr. Weinstein, I would consider representing anyone who accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, even if it meant that my daughter was the opposing counsel,” she said.
Game on, daughter.
Bloom issued her own statement:
