Writer Scott Rosenberg (Beautiful Girls, Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead) has penned a statement.  

How am I supposed to know whether Weinstein is repulsive creep or a victim of a witch hunt without know his partisan affiliation?

This illustrates a typically poor understanding of the watchdog role of the media, which the current alt-right media assumes is based purely on partisanship. Investigative reporters have historically

More to the point, consider that the DNA of world leaders is already a subject of intrigue. According to Ronald Kessler, the author of the 2009 book In the President’s Secret Service, Navy stewards gather bedsheets, drinking glasses, and other objects the president has touched—they are later sanitized or destroyed—in an effort to keep would‑be malefactors from obtaining his genetic material. (The Secret Service would neither confirm nor deny this practice, nor would it comment on any other aspect of this article.) And according to a 2010 release of secret cables by WikiLeaks, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton directed our embassies to surreptitiously collect DNA samples from foreign heads of state and senior United Nations officials. Clearly, the U.S. sees strategic advantage in knowing the specific biology of world leaders; it would be surprising if other nations didn’t feel the same.

Or because the dna samples that were on the coat werent really complete samples to compare to. Only one of them had enough info to even determine if it was male. 

This creates a high likelihood that the test results would come back that he couldnt be excluded for at least one of the 4 possibilities. 

The press would have a field day with that language. "Trump unable to be excluded as rapist"

Cosby and Weinstein proving that hobbling into court with a walker doesn't garner sympathy with the jury.  

The prosecution should have brought up an expert to explain how rapists generally have significant degeneration of the lumbar spine later in life.

Harvey Weinstein has contracted the coronavirus in prison.

 

 

 

They’re saying he probably had it when he was at Rikers last week. They have like 56 cases now (over half are inmates.)

I can just imagine the conspiracy theories if he dies

How does Weinstein get priority to be tested?

:shrug:

50+ positive results in Rikers (among inmates and staff) - so he is hardly alone among prisoners who have been tested.
