Connecticut Democrats Take Money Tainted With Weinstein – Now What?

Printed from:

Ah, Connecticut Democrats.  Ever the hypocrites.  Ever the dirty party of double standards.

So check this out. Sandy Litvack is a Democrat running for First Selectman in Greenwich. Litvack’s background? According to Connecticut U.S. Senate Republican candidate Matthew Corey, Litvack is an attorney and former senior film executive … who had employment oversight over disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein.

“Democrat officials and organizations in Connecticut should be horrified they are taking campaign money – for the sole purpose of advancing political careers — from ‘Hollywood’ Sandy Litvack, a senior HR executive who did nothing to protect women from the sexual attacks of disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein, who now stands accused of dozens of incidents of sexual abuse, sexual assault, and even rape,” Corey said in a written statement.

No Democrats seem to have a problem with Litvack running for the highest elected position in Greenwich.  Because Litvack is a Democrat, of course. 

But as Corey points out, it’s important to follow the money trail.

“Equally unnerving is the fact that Democrat officials and organizations in Connecticut are benefitting financially via donations from a wealthy and powerful corporate executive who did nothing to protect young women from the most vile man in Hollywood,” he said.
Specifically he pointed out that tainted Litvack money is benefiting:
Chris Murphy (Democratic U.S. senator)                        $2,000
Dita Bhargava (Democratic governor hopeful)              $375
John Blankley (Democratic state treasurer hopeful)    $375
Matt Lesser (Democratic state representative)              $375
Drew Marzullo (Democratic Greenwich selectman)     $100
Greenwich Democratic Town Committee                       $215
Bridgewater Democratic Town Committee                    $500


Will Litvack drop out of the race?  Will Connecticut Democrats distance themselves and instead donate the money to something like an organization aiding abused women?

Corey, for one, thinks they should. 

“Harvey Weinstein got away with his years-long sexual abuse of young women because people who knew about the abuse did nothing – and in many instances even benefited financially from his power and money,” Corey said.

It’ll be interesting to see whether Connecticut Democrats stand with the abused victims … or those accused of enabling the abuse.
