As Disturbing Allegations Against Dustin Hoffman Surface, Will DNC and DSCC Return Contributions?

New reports, in The Associated Press and elsewhere, indicate Hollywood actor Dustin Hoffman exposed himself, and made sexual overtures, to teenage girls in the 1980s.

Playwright Cori Thomas described the 1980 incident in a story published Thursday by the trade outlet Variety. She confirmed the story in an email to The Associated Press.

Thomas was a classmate of Hoffman’s daughter when she says she met the actor, who invited her to his hotel room to wait for her mother after a dinner with the teenagers. Thomas says after Hoffman’s daughter left, the actor took a shower and came out wearing only a towel, which she told Variety he dropped, exposing himself to her. Hoffman then put on a robe and asked Thomas to massage his feet, Thomas said, and repeatedly asked her if she wanted to see him naked again.

…Actress Anna Graham Hunter has alleged that Hoffman groped her and made inappropriate comments when she was a 17-year-old intern on the set of the 1985 TV movie “Death of a Salesman.”

Hoffman would have been around 43 during the 1980 incident, and around 48 during the 1985 incident.

Hoffman has not been an active political donor for years, but gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic groups and candidates in the 1990s and 2000s.

This includes at least $65,000 to the DNC:

  • $25,000 on 9/28/92
  • $10,000 on 10/02/00
  • $30,400 on 5/30/09

And at least $80,000 to the DSCC:

  • $20,000 on 9/28/90
  • $20,000 on 6/30/92
  • $20,000 on 3/29/93
  • $20,000 on 5/6/94

Though the donations were decades ago, in some cases, so were Hoffman’s abuses of women. If Democrats are as serious about addressing sexual assault as they claim, they may want to return Hoffman’s contributions.
