Harvey Weinstein’s Sexual Harassment Scandal Continues To Grow

CHICAGO (CBS) — Harvey Weinstein was one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers. But the fallout from Weinstein’s sexual harassment scandal continues to grow. His wife now tells People magazine she is leaving him, following an increasing number of allegations against him, including rape. Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are now among the women accusing the movie mogul of sexual harassment and abuse. They’re part of a growing list, with accusations going back decades. Another woman, former actress Louisette Geiss, is also among Weinstein’s accusers. At a press conference Tuesday with attorney Gloria Alred, Geiss talked about a meeting she had with Weinstein in 2008.

Attorney Gloria Allred and her client Louisette Geiss speak during a press conference about her client’s allegations of sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein at Allred’s office October 10, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women.

“I could get a three picture deal and that he would green-light my script, but I had to watch him masturbate,” Geiss said. And the list grows, with others telling their stories to the New Yorker, which has also obtained audio tape of an encounter Weinstein had with Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez. It was recorded in the lobby of the Tribeca Grand Hotel when police asked her to wear a wire after a previous, unsolicited encounter. “Why yesterday you touch my breast?” Battilana Gutierrez can be heard saying on the tape. “Oh please, I’m sorry. Just come on in. I’m used to that. Come on. Please,” Weinstein responds. The New Yorker states prosecutors did not press charges because they couldn’t establish criminal intent. Victims advocates say silence, sometimes for decades, isn’t uncommon. “The person that is doing the harassing is trying to control the victim in these situations, so there’s a lot of manipulation that can occur,” Megan Blomquist said, who’s the Education Dir. of Rape Victim Advocates. “Making them feel ‘crazy,’ making them feel like if you tell someone you won’t get this job.” Tuesday evening, Former President Barack Obama, who attended some of Weinstein’s past fundraisers, says he and Mrs. Obama are disgusted by reports of his conduct. Their oldest daughter, Malia, interned at Weinstein’s company earlier this year. Weinstein denies any reports of non-consensual sex.

They say federal agencies are collaborating with local police departments to solve thefts from stores around the state. “We are using shell casing analysis, DNA analysis, cell phone and social media exploitation. Every trick in the book to get the guns back and also to hold these folks accountable for this,” Troyer said. Tuesday’s announcement included charges in six separate break-ins, dating back to November.

Arrests that came largely in part to the formation of a special task force known as “Strike Force.” In the most recent case, prosecutors say four people teamed up to steal handguns, shotguns and rifles from Mel Bernstein’s store Dragon Arms in El Paso County. “My video shows four people running into the store grabbing guns and running back out,” he said.

In other cases, officials say crews targeted a Cabela’s store in Lone Tree and Thornton, a pawn store in Colorado Springs and a gun store in Denver. Prosecutors say more than 400 firearms have been stolen from Colorado stores this year. Troyer says their aggressive approach to solving these crimes should send an equally aggressive message. “They should go somewhere else if they want to try this. The reality is you’re going to get caught,” said Troyer. Karen Morfitt joined the CBS4 team as a reporter in 2013. She covers a variety of stories in and around the Denver metro area.
