View Full Version : Feminist Attorney Lisa Bloom Sought to Discredit Weinstein Accusers

The New York Times reports that it has seen emails that show feminist attorney Lisa Bloom attempting to collude with The Weinstein Company (TWC) to discredit some or all of the women accusing TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein (who was fired over the weekend) of everything from sexual harassment to sexual misconduct.
Just as damning, the Times also reports that two TWC board members, including Harvey’s brother Bob, subsequently questioned Bloom’s competence, self-interest, and ability to be impartial. If these reports are true, they shed an entirely different light on Bloom’s weekend decision to resign.

The fallout between Bloom and the two board members apparently began on Thursday after Bloom suggested a tactic as old (and ham-handed) as former President Bill Clinton’s bimbo eruptions — to release photos of the accusers posing and smiling with Weinstein after his alleged sexual misconduct took place:

As the board convened an emergency phone meeting on Thursday evening to address the allegations, published in an investigation by The Times, Ms. Bloom sent an email to board members attacking the article. She outlined a plan that involved “more and different reporting,” including “photos of several of the accusers in very friendly poses with Harvey after his alleged misconduct.”
