Some Democrats Are Regifting Their Harvey Weinstein Donations — To Women's Charities!

no title

Harvey Weinstein is a producer of some of the finest films of the past quarter century — and according to an exposé in the New York Times, a serial sexual harasser.

After the story hit that Harvey had sexually harassed a number of women (including Ashley Judd) and had settled harassment accusations with eight women (including Rose McGowan) he wasn't the only one who needed to come up with a response.

See, Weinstein, whose future at The Weinstein Company is currently in limbo, is also a big political donor who has given thousands to Democratic candidates over the years, putting those still in office or running into an awkward position.

So some are putting that money to good use.

Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, announced he is donating Harvey's $7,800 to the New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault. Likewise, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is regifting her 5K directly to charity.

Democratic Senators Patrick Leahy (Vermont), Martin Heinrich (New Mexico), and Richard Blumenthal (Connecticut) have also done likewise. Weinstein donees who have not yet responded include Democratic minority leader Chuck Schumer (New York), Al Franken (Minnesota), Sheldon Whitehouse (Rhode Island), and Kirsten Gillibrand (New York).

We can't blame anyone for not wanting any connection to Weinstein at this point.

Twitter Can't Get Enough Of This Guy Trolling The Equifax Senate Hearings Dressed As Mr. Monopoly!

Filed under: Silly!Legal MattersPolitikBusiness BlitzPrankFunnyViral: News

The Senate Finance Committee questioned Equifax's response to a multiple data breaches on Wednesday, and — let's face it. Financial hearings are boring.

The entire world of finance is made up of technical jargon to keep regular consumers on their heels so those in the know can take advantage of them — so it's hard to understand what they're even being accused of!

But hearings like these are also incredibly important, as they exist to stop regular people from getting cheated. Thankfully someone had a bright idea on how to get everyone to pay attention — they showed up dressed as Mr. Monopoly!

People watching the hearings could not take their eyes off Rich Uncle Pennybags (yes, that's the character's real name) sitting behind former Equifax CEO Richard Smith as he tried to dodge questions like how much extra money they were charging their customers for their bad security.

Donald Trump only has himself to blame.

The Celebrity Apprentice star and professional bullshitter proved that anyone could be President — even a WWE star. (Yes, our sitting President is in the WWE Hall of Fame.)

Maybe that's what inspired Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to tentatively throw his hat in the ring for 2020. Who knows?

Bernie Sanders & More Male Senators Are Reading Coretta Scott King's Letter To Support Elizabeth Warren — And They AREN'T Being Silenced!

Filed under: PolitikViral: NewsSocial Issues

no title

Elizabeth Warren's words will be finished… even if she's not the one saying them.

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Senator was formally silenced by Republican Senators for rejecting Jeff Sessions' attorney general nomination by reading a letter from Coretta Scott King.

Warren's reading of the 1986 letter, in which King objected to Sen. Sessions' nomination to be a federal judge, was cut short by GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — who later banned Warren from the floor for the remainder of the debate.

But even though Warren was silenced, her words found a way right back to the senate floor!

Later in the night, Sen. Jeff Merkley supported his colleague by finishing what she started and elaborated on the context of King's letter — and specifically quoted the section McConnell objected to.

Unlike Warren, however, the Oregon Senator spoke without an interruption from McConnell.

The GOP got another earful of Warren's speech on Wednesday, when Democratic Senators Sherrod Brown, Tom Udall, and Bernie Sanders all read King's words:

Elizabeth Warren Silenced After Quoting Coretta Scott King In Senate Debate Over Trump's Attorney General Pick — Watch The Showdown!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpSad SadFacebookViral: News

no title

Elizabeth Warren will NOT stay silent.

The Massachusetts Senator was interrupted by Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell right in the middle of a speech she was giving in opposition to the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general.

Warren was reading a speech by Coretta Scott King — the widow of Martin Luther King Jr. — written in 1986 when Sessions was under consideration for a federal judgeship.

In the letter, King explains her reasoning for rejecting the Republican politician, writing:

"I write to express my sincere opposition to the confirmation of Jefferson B. Sessions as a federal district court judge for the Southern District of Alabama… Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts."

When Warren uttered those last lines, McConnell declared the letter as crossing the line for the senate floor. Republican Sen. Steve Daines agreed, and ordered Warren to keep quiet and sit down.

Of course, Warren didn't take too kindly to being silenced, and appealed the order to continue speaking, noting:
