Pelosi, Schumer, Perez, and Ellison elected not to discuss allegations of sexual assault against a Democratic mega-donor, and what Democrats should do with that money, during an event on Friday.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) joined Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez and DNC Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) for a Democrats Live event on Friday to discuss issues facing the Democratic Party and the country.
However, the leaders of the Democratic Party elected not to discuss allegations of sexual assault against Democratic mega-donor Harvey Weinstein, despite many calling the allegations against Weinstein “a big problem for Democrats.”
The event was part of an interview series launched by Perez and Ellison earlier this year.
Perez and Ellison asked Schumer and Pelosi about a range of questions, including disaster relief, the Republican tax reform plan, ‘The Better Deal,’ special elections, DACA, health care, and the Trump administration.
The DNC chairs, though, avoided asking any questions about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who faces several accusations of sexual assault.
This might be because Weinstein has contributed six-figure sums to the DNC. The DNC, for its part, has not said whether it will be returning the money that Weinstein donated.
Schumer, who received $16,200 from Weinstein, announced he would be donating those funds to women’s charities on Friday.
