DIRTY DOZEN: 12 Well-known Politicians Who Harvey Weinstein Funded

On Friday, Hollywood film guru Harvey Weinstein was suspended indefinitely from his company The Weinstein Company, as new reports surfaced of alleged sexual harassment and misconduct in a New York Times report. Weinstein’s scandal has led sources to follow his money trail and where he has political interest.

Interesting enough, BuzzFeed and Business Insider have both uncovered massive amounts of funds donated by Weinstein to the DNC and key figures who represent the party. According to Business Insider’s ARTICLE, Weinstein donated over $300,000 directly to the DNC and over $30,000 to left-leaning political groups.

And that’s not all. Reports from both BuzzFeed and Business Insider have brought forth a combined 12 well-known politicians (all Democrat) whose campaigns have been funded by Weinstein. Here’s the list:

Many of the current politicians have since become embarrassed by the latest findings and are quickly trying to find ways to get rid of the money by donating it to charities and not-for-profit organizations.

But what is most odd about any of this is the lack of attention mainstream news sources are focusing on all of this. Why is that? We’ll leave that up to you to figure out.
