Clinton released a statement about Weinstein on Tuesday, but it doesn’t address what her campaign will do will with the producer’s donations.
After remaining silent for five days, Hillary Clinton has finally issued a statement regarding disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. However, Clinton’s statement does not say what her campaign will do with the donations that it received from Weinstein.
“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”
Weinstein, who has been described as a Democratic ‘mega-donor,’ donated $17,300 to Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2106. Along with those personal donations, Weinstein was also a top bundler for the Clinton campaign, even hosting a fundraiser for Clinton at his Manhattan home last year.
CNN reported that over the years Weinstein had raised about $1.5 million for the various Clinton campaigns.
Democrats have called on Clinton to donate the funds her campaign received from Weinstein to women’s charities. Clinton’s statement makes no mention of what she will be doing with those funds, however.
