The Harvey Weinstein Scandal Just Expanded From Sexual Harassment To Embezzlement

Harvey Weinstein is the scandal that keeps on giving. It’s obviously not bad enough that he has groped and assaulted every actress in Hollywood that he could. It now appears he embezzled the money used to pay them off in settlements. Honestly, you couldn’t make this stuff up for a cheap Hollywood screenplay.

Breitbart reports:

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is investigating the origin of the money used in payments to settle Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct cases out of court, according to the New York Post.

The outlet reports that DA Cyrus Vance Jr. has launched a “wide-ranging and aggressive” probe into the source of the settlement money that Weinstein and his legal team used to settle sex misconduct cases — details of eight financial settlements with women, including actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, dating back to the early 1990s, were first reported in October in a bombshell New York Times report.

The investigation is reportedly part of a potentially broader embezzlement case involving the disgraced movie producer and his former film firms, Miramax and The Weinstein Company which he co-founded in 2005 with his brother Bob Weinstein.

In a related development, TMZ reports that “more than 20 grand jury subpoenas have been issued to people at The Weinstein Co. and several employees have already been interviewed for the financial investigation … as well as the alleged rape cases.”
