Harvey Weinstein's rape accuser tried to 'fabricate' witness: defense lawyer

Harvey Weinstein’s 2013 rape accuser tried to “fabricate” a witness when she came forward with her allegations last year — four years after the alleged encounter, his lawyers charged Thursday.

Weinstein, who faces a minimum of 10 years behind bars on the top count in his sex assault indictment, is seeking to have the criminal case dismissed on several grounds, including that the investigation was corrupt.

His lawyer Ben Brafman said the woman who said she was forcibly raped by Weinstein at a Doubletree Hotel on Lexington Ave. tried to recruit her former best friend as a deponent — even though the accusation was news to the other woman.

“According to the witness, (the accuser) reached out to her — after not speaking to her for more than two years — and said to her that Mr. Weinstein had assaulted (her) a few years ago in New York,” Brafman wrote in the filing. “She then asked the witness to assist (her) with the accusation she was making against Mr. Weinstein, presumably so as to serve as a prompt outcry witness.”

“The witness responded that (the accuser) never ever told her that she was assaulted or raped by Mr. Weinstein,” the filing continues. “The witness further told (the accuser) that she did not want to be involved with (the accuser’s) allegations against Mr. Weinstein.”

The court papers are part of a battle in writing between Brafman and the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

Prosecutors recently defended their case even after they were forced to dismiss a count of criminal sex act related to one victim — former aspiring actress Lucia Evans — who said she was forced to perform oral sex on Weinstein at his Tribeca office in 2004.

The DA’s office accused the lead NYPD detective on the case of withholding exculpatory information relating to Evans and they also uncovered an email draft Evans authored to her husband in 2015 in which she undermined her own account.

The defense probe “has revealed substantial additional exculpatory information that has also been withheld from Mr. Weinstein — including the fact that one of the two remaining complaining witnesses...may have attempted to fabricate a ‘prompt outcry’ witness, years after the alleged assault,” Brafman wrote in Thursday’s document.

Weinstein’s defense team previously revealed that the rape accuser swapped some 40 affectionate and flirtatious emails with the fallen Hollywood honcho in the four years after she says she was attacked in March 2013.

She had a 10-year ongoing consensual relationship with the producer, who has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by dozens of women in the entertainment business.

Weinstein, who is facing several lawsuits, has been criminally charged only in Manhattan Supreme Court.

While charges were pending against him in connection to alleged attacks against three women, he now stands charged with two counts of pattern conduct, which carry a minimum of 10 years behind bars.

There are two counts of rape related to the 2013 accuser and a count of criminal sex act in connection to Mimi Haleyi, a former production assistant who says Weinstein forced a sex act on her in 2006.

The DA’s office declined to comment.

Josh Hawley for U.S. Senator for Missouri

Here is our chance to unseat feminist Claire McCaskill. Josh Hawley is the Republican challenger. McCaskill is a hard line misandrist so she has to go. Do you guys in Missouri want to be represented by someone who backs Kavenaugh's accusers? If not vote for Josh Hawley to be your Senator.

UPDATE: It seems that most of Claire McCaskill's donations are coming from outside Missouri. Mainly from California. Also she is losing but the gap could be wider. In favor of Josh Hawley.

Little boys are also cannon fodder to McCaskill. Her anti-male hatred is so intense not even male children are safe.

The case against Harvey Weinstein is falling apart

The sexual assault case against Harvey Weinstein is in danger of crumbling after Manhattan prosecutors found an accuser’s written account of her encounter with the movie mogul that suggests it was consensual, multiple sources told The Post.

Lucia Evans has accused Weinstein of forcing her to perform oral sex on him inside his Tribeca office in 2004, when she was a 21-year-old college student and aspiring actress. She is one of three women whose allegations of sexual assault are being prosecuted by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office.

But a prior employer of Evans turned over the personal writings she’d left on the company computer, which appear to contradict her grand jury testimony, a law enforcement source said.

“The writings indicate it was consensual, friendly,” a source told The Post. “It has caused a split [in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office], some believe the charges should be dropped and that there’s a problem [with this complainant].”

Manhattan prosecutors ultimately decided not to drop Evans from the case despite some internal opposition.

The latest revelation comes after another damaging report, that the NYPD’s lead investigator on the case failed to turn over statements from a casting director who said Evans told him she had performed the sex act to score an acting gig.

Another source said, “The casting witness is a problem, but that is still ‘he said, she said.’ It’s harder to explain away her own words.”

The DA’s office declined to comment for this article.

This Thursday, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice James Burke is expected to rule on whether to dismiss count six of the indictment that relates to Evans, sources said.

He’ll also decide whether to lift the protective order, which allowed prosecutors to file the damning disclosures under seal.

Weinstein’s defense lawyer, Ben Brafman, has lobbied the judge to make them public, sources said.

The former Miramax boss faces up to life in prison on charges of rape, predatory sex assault and criminal sex acts for the alleged attack on Evans and two other women.

In court papers, Brafman previously argued that the case against the “Shakespeare in Love” producer should be dismissed because prosecutors hid the fact that he had a “long-term, consensual” relationship with one of the accusers.

Weinstein and the woman, whose name has not been released, exchanged 400 emails during the “weeks and years after the alleged rape,” the papers state.

In a February 2017 email sent nearly four years after the alleged sex attack, she wrote, “I love you, always do. But I hate feeling like a booty call. :)”

Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon countered in court papers that none of the emails show the accuser denying that she was raped and insisted the presentation to the grand jury was fair and complete.

The third complainant, production assistant Mimi Haleyi, alleges that Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in 2006 inside his SoHo home.

“My client has sacrificed everything for her day in court to hold Harvey Weinstein responsible for sexual assault,” said Evans’ lawyer Carrie Goldberg. “Getting to the truth is the very purpose of trials. And we have utmost confidence that her testimony and supporting evidence will prove his guilt.”

President Trump says false rape accusations are unacceptable and those that make them should be held fully accountable

WASHINGTON - Hours after his Supreme Court pick was sworn in Saturday, President Donald Trump said on Fox News that those who made up "false" stories about Brett Kavanaugh should be penalized.

Trump, talking with Fox News' Jeanine Pirro, said he hated watching the slew of sexual assault allegations grow against Kavanaugh and dubbed all the accusations "fabrications" with "not a bit of truth."

"I think that they should be held liable," Trump told Pirro. "You can't go around and whether it's making up stories or making false statements about such an important position, you can't do that. You can destroy somebody's life."

Pirro started the segment by congratulating the president on Kavanaugh's swearing-in then asked about the accusations and whether any of those who came forward or promoted "falsehoods" should suffer "consequences." She specifically asked about allegations brought by Julie Sweatnick, who was represented by lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Swetnick alleges she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and his classmate Mark Judge to get teenage girls "inebriated and disoriented so they could then be 'gang-raped' in a side room or bedroom by a 'train' of numerous boys."

Avenatti has been dueling with the president for months in court representing porn star Stormy Daniels, who alleges an affair with Trump and signed a hush money deal to stay quiet.

Trump alleged Avenatti had made "false accusations about me" in the past and said he would love to see libel laws get tougher.

Trump said he watched the saga and watched Kavanaugh suffer "with false statements made about him, things that never happened."

"There were many, many false things that were said about a very, very fine man and would have destroyed his family if this didn't happen," Trump said, referring to the confirmation. "It all came together in the end and people realized it was false accusations and false statements."

President Trump mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during a campaign rally on Tuesday night in Mississippi. USA TODAY

Avenatti, in an interview with USA TODAY, said it was despicable that Trump and others, including members of the media, would call his client's claims false without first investigating them. Swetnick was not interviewed by the FBI in its investigation of Kavanaugh.

"Donald Trump is the most dishonest individual to ever hold the office of President of the United States," Avenatti said. "He is the last person in the nation that should be accusing other people of engaging in falsehoods."

He added his client was "trying to hold it together" after Saturday's vote but was "disgusted" by the barrage of attacks. "This is why women don't report sexual assaults," he said.

Earlier Saturday, Trump praised Senate Republicans for their work in getting Kavanaugh confirmed and said he believes a speech he made earlier this week attacking the credibility of accuser Christine Blasey Ford helped generate support for the embattled nominee.

“I think that the Mississippi speech had a great impact, yes - I think it was a very important thing," Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One en route to a political rally in Topeka, Kansas.

During the controversial speech, Trump mocked Ford and mimicked her, claiming her allegations against Kavanaugh lacked sufficient detail. Numerous lawmakers, including undecided Republican senators like Susan Collins and Jeff Flake, said they were appalled by Trump's behavior, but wound up voting for Kavanaugh anyway.

The polarizing battle over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has ended, but voter repercussions could be coming soon.


Sounds good. Let's thank President Donald Trump for taking the stance he is taking. Let's let him know there are men out there that take the stance he is taking and that we are not all like the sissies of the past that were scared of their wives,girlfriends and the intolerant left. The more of us he hears from the better so email him today right away. To contact him click on his name and position.

They finally get it

President Trump continued his defense Tuesday of his Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, mocking one of Kavanaugh's accusers at a Mississippi campaign rally.

The latest move by Trump came just hours after he had highlighted the possibility of false accusations against young men in the midst of a cultural moment brought on in the past year by the #MeToo movement.

"I think that it's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of," Trump said Tuesday afternoon outside the White House. "This is a very difficult time."

Kavanaugh's nomination remains in limbo this week, as the FBI looks into allegations of sexual assault made by numerous women. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed again on Tuesday to vote on the nomination by the end of the week, insisting that the results of the FBI inquiry be kept private, for senators only to see.

Late last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard from both Kavanaugh, and Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges Kavanaugh drunkenly pinned her down on a bed and groped her against her will at a high school gathering in 1982. Scrutiny has been building this week on Kavanaugh, not only because of the accusations, but because of his testimony at that hearing.

A number of Kavanaugh's classmates have publicly said he misrepresented or lied about his drinking habits when he was in school, while he testified under oath in front of the Senate.

President Trump said that if Kavanaugh did lie to Congress, then "that would not be acceptable," but the White House has said the administration does not feel that Kavanaugh lied under oath.

At the same time, a backlash to that backlash has begun brewing in conservative circles. Many Republican senators have said they view the accusations and subsequent questions as desperate delay tactics on the part of Democrats.

"A vote against Kavanaugh is a 'yes' vote for more of these despicable tactics being used time and time again in the future," said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, on the Senate floor Tuesday.

President Donald Trump speaks to the media before departing from the White House en route to speak with electrical workers in Philadelphia, Penn.

President Trump, as well as his family, have raised fears about the possibility of politically motivated false accusations. Trump himself has been accused of a range of sexual misconduct, from harassment to assault. He has denied every accusation.

"You could be somebody that was perfect their entire life and someone could accuse you of something," Trump told reporters Tuesday afternoon. "You are truly guilty until proven innocent."

And the rally in Southaven, Miss., on Tuesday night, Trump went further. He mocked Ford's testimony, noting she said she could remember how many beers she consumed but couldn't remember details about where the house was where she says the assault happened or how she got home that night.

Trump asked a series of questions, acting out both sides of Ford's congressional testimony to laughs and applause from the crowd.

"What neighborhood was it in? 'I don't know.' Where's the house? 'I don't know.' Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? "I don't know but I had one beer that's the only thing I remember!" Trump said. "And a man's life is in tatters! A man's life is shattered."

After Ford's testimony last week, Trump had called her a "very credible witness."

"It's a damn sad situation," Trump told the roaring crowd on Tuesday, after chants of "We want Kavanaugh! We want Kavanaugh!" had quieted.

"Think of your son," Trump said. "Think of your husband."

Michael R. Bromwich, one of Ford's lawyers, called it a "a vicious, vile and soulless attack" in a post on Twitter.

Trump's comments echoed a message his son, Donald Trump Jr., relayed in an interview that aired this week on DailyMailTV. Trump Jr. said he fears more for his sons than for his daughters in the age of #MeToo.

"I got boys and I got girls, and when I see what's going on right now — it's scary," Trump Jr. said. "The other problem is for the people that are real victims of these things, when it is so obviously political in cases like this, I think it diminishes the real claims."

The idea that people in the U.S. are wrongfully "guilty until proven innocent" is an idea that wasn't manifesting itself politically on the right until last week, GOP pollster Frank Luntz told The Washington Post.

"In this era of #MeToo, there are a lot of men — and some women — who believe that justice no longer exists in America," Luntz said.

This raises the possibility of conservatives rallying around the Kavanaugh confirmation fight and cutting into the enthusiasm advantage among Democratic women, many of whom who were politically activated when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016. NPR's Danielle Kurtzleben reported recently on how women have swung further towards the Democrats this year than in elections going back at least two decades.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll from Sept. 23, just a week after the allegations were known, showed interest in the election among white men at 64 percent, higher than in 2010 when Republicans retook the House and 2014 when the GOP took control of the Senate.


This is awareness. The President of the United States of America is addressing our issues. This is what activism can accomplish. Proof it can be done. Don't let anyone tell you you can't do it. You have the power to effect pro-male change,brothers. Are you going to use that power? I am. Are you?

Get 'em,Lindsey. Get 'em.

If you are tired of the Kavenaugh inquistion like I am then you are glad that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said what he did. I know I am. The femocrats were going to drag this out until the November elections. Hopefully Graham put a stop to it. It may be a good idea to thank Graham for the position he took. I did and so can you.

Well well well how sweet it is

An eminent sociologist and high profile women’s rights campaigner has stepped down indefinitely from the board of a gender equality group following allegations of sexual harassment.

Michael Kimmel, distinguished professor of sociology at Stony Brook University in New York, has resigned from the board of Promundo, an initiative that promotes gender justice by engaging men and boys.
Kimmel, a vocal advocate for women’s rights and author of books including Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era, also offered to defer the acceptance of a sociology award. He was due to receive the prestigious Jessie Bernard award from the American Sociological Association in recognition of his contribution to women’s equality studies. On Wednesday, ASA’s council voted unanimously to suspend delivery of the award.

In a message to members, ASA also said its working group on harassment, formed last year, will conduct a review of the organisation’s awards policies, nomination and appointment processes, and the process for reporting and responding to ethical violations.

The allegations against Kimmel were first reported by the Chronicle of Higher Education, which cited comments by a former graduate student. The former student, who asked to remain anonymous, said Kimmel had suggested they have sex six weeks into her graduate course, and later in her career. She added that he had complimented her appearance, and remarked that she would have to work hard to prove that she had reached her position as a result of her academic talents, and not because she was sleeping with someone.
Following the report, another former graduate student published a detailed account of their time working with Kimmel on the website Medium. Bethany Coston, now assistant professor of gender, sexuality and women’s studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, accused Kimmel of sexist behaviour, such as giving paid work to male students while women were expected to work for free. Coston also accused Kimmel of homophobic and transphobic attitudes, and of a lack of respect for anyone but cisgender heterosexual men.

Kimmel has worked as a consultant for charities and government bodies, as well as lecturing at hundreds of schools, colleges and universities, according to his website. In 2013 he founded the Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities at Stony Brook.

Promundo said that it was deeply disturbed by the allegations of sexual harassment, adding that it had accepted Kimmel’s temporary resignation from its board of directors.

“We fully appreciate the need to weigh due process along with all the shortcomings of formal sexual harassment complaint procedures and the power inequalities inherent to these processes,” the Promundo said in a statement. “What we can say is that all such allegations must be investigated, those harmed must be protected and supported and accountability and restorative justice must prevail.

Kimmel did not respond to the Guardian’s request for a comment, but said in a statement to the Chronicle of Higher Education: “... I have been informed that there are rumours circulating about my professional conduct that suggest I have behaved unethically. While nothing has been formally alleged to the best of my knowledge, I take such concerns seriously, and want to validate the voices of those who are making such claims. I want to hear those charges, hear those voices, and make amends to those who believe I have injured them.”

It's about time someone brought this up

'Believe Women' Is Perilous Baloney

By Michelle Malkin
September 19, 2018

I have a message for virtue-signaling men who've rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion.
Stuff it.

Your blanket "Believe Women" bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul.Br

A certain class of never Trump-harumphers are leading the charge on behalf of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's memory-addled partisan accuser Christine Blasey Ford -- who cannot recall the year she was allegedly traumatized, where it happened, who threw the party that paralyzed her for nearly four decades, how many were in attendance during her claimed assault, how she got there or how she left.
No matter! Bush campaign hack-turned-ABC News analyst Matthew Dowd doesn't need any data to analyze. "Enough with the 'he said, she said'" storyline," he declared this week. "If this is he said, she said, then let's believe the she in these scenarios. She has nothing to gain, and everything to lose. For 250 years we have believed the he in these scenarios. Enough is enough."

Clinton/Kerry flack Peter Daou echoed the unthinking sentiment: "To everyone on the right who says I'm being selective, I BELIEVE WOMEN whether the accused is a Republican or Democrat. And yes, that includes all the names you're throwing at me. My default in these situations is to BELIEVE WOMEN."
Ivy League poobah Simon Hedlin asserted: "Accusers go public not because of any supposed benefits but despite the immense costs." He argued: "When somebody is credibly accused of sexual misconduct, the default should be to believe the accuser."
That is a dumb and dangerous default. The costly toll of "believing women," instead of believing evidence, can be seen in the hundreds and hundreds of cases recorded by the University of Michigan Law School's National Registry of Exonerations involving innocent men falsely accused of rape and rape/murders.

One of those men whose plight I've reported on for CRTV and my syndicated column, former Fort Worth police officer Brian Franklin, spent 21 years in prison of a life sentence after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in 1995 who had committed perjury on the stand. Franklin vigilantly maintained his innocence, studied law in the prison library and won a reversal of his conviction in 2016. The jury took less than two hours to acquit him. But his name is still not clear. He recently submitted a 200-page application for a pardon for innocence and cannot do what he wants to do -- return to law enforcement -- unless the members of the Texas board of pardons and paroles (along with Texas constitutional conservatives who pay lip service to truth, justice and due process) do the right thing.

In Philadelphia, Anthony Wright also served more than two decades behind bars like Franklin. He was convicted in 1993 for a brutal rape and murder of an elderly woman. It was a female prosecutor, Bridget Kirn, who "failed to alert the Court or the jury to what she personally knew was the falsity of [police detectives'] testimony, or otherwise honor her ethical duty to correct it," according to Wright's lawyers with the Innocence Project. They have filed a lawsuit directly aimed at the prosecutor this week to hold her accountable for her criminal falsehoods.
And just this week, Oregonian Joshua Horner, serving a 50-year sentence for sexual abuse of a young girl, was exonerated after a dog that the accuser had claimed he shot dead was found alive. There had been no DNA, no corroborating witnesses and no other forensic evidence -- just the word of girl whose contradictions and memory problems were explained away as "post-traumatic stress" while an innocent man nearly drowned.

The idea that all women and girls must be telling the truth at all times about sexual assault allegations because they "have nothing to gain" is perilously detached from reality. Retired NYPD special victim squad detective John Savino, forensic scientist and criminal profiler of the Forensic Criminology Institute Brent Turvey, and forensic psychologist Aurelio Coronado Mares detail the myriad "prosocial" and "antisocial" lies people tell in their textbook, "False Allegations: Investigative and Forensic Issues in Fraudulent Reports of Crime."

"Prosocial deceptions" involve specific motives beneficial to both the deceiver and the deceived, including the incentives to "preserve the dignity of others"; to gain "financial benefit" for another; to protect a relationship; "ego-boosting or image protection [of others]"; and "protecting others from harm or consequence."

"Antisocial" lies involve selfish motives to "further a personal agenda at some cost to others," including "self-deception and rationalization to protect or boost self-esteem"; "enhance status or perception in the eyes of others"; "garner sympathy"; "avoid social stigma"; "conceal inadequacy, error, and culpability"; "avoid consequence"; and for "personal and/or material gain."
Let me repeat the themes of my work in this area for the past two years to counter the "Believe Women" baloney:
The role of the press should be verification, not validation.

Rape is a devastating crime. So is lying about it.

It's not victim-blaming to get to the bottom of the truth. It's liar-shaming.

Don't believe a gender. Believe evidence.

Clarance Thomas sets them straight

Secretary of Education shuts down Obama's kangaroo courts

A judicial process that doesn’t allow the accused to cross-examine his accuser or reliably see the evidence against him is a civil libertarian’s nightmare. It traduces every principle of fairness and is blatantly un-American.

Yet Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is about to get savaged for replacing just such a process with something more in keeping with our longstanding legal norms.

The Education Department is preparing new rules that would roll back the monstrously unfair Obama-era requirements for how colleges handle sexual-assault and harassment allegations. It will be a significant advance for due process, which is almost as out of style on campus as free speech.

In one of its least defensible actions, the Obama administration used its Office for Civil Rights to impose its preferred procedures for handling sexual-assault cases on all the universities in the country that receive federal funds. It did it via a 19-page “Dear Colleague” letter, in the name of Title IX, the provision in federal law prohibiting sexual discrimination in education.

The process was terrible. It blew right by the Administrative Procedure Act, which requires public notice and comment before such rules go into effect. And the substance was worse. If the letter reads as if it was written by inflamed activists who had no interest in balanced proceedings, that’s because it was.

It required colleges to adopt a “preponderance of evidence” standard rather than a “clear and convincing” standard.

It more or less forbade colleges from allowing the cross-examination of accusers.

It adopted a remarkably broad definition of sexual harassment to include “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature.”

The administration also encouraged the use of a “single investigator-adjudicator system,” i.e., one person as investigator, judge and jury.

The Obama rules are medieval in the sense that they ignore central developments in Anglo-American justice that arose hundreds of years ago.

In their important book “The Campus Rape Frenzy,” KC Johnson and Stuart Taylor Jr. describe how the rules often played out: “Start with an alcohol-soaked set of facts that no state’s criminal law would consider sexual assault. Add an incomplete ‘investigation,’ unfair procedures, and a disciplinary panel uninterested in evidence of innocence. Stir in a de facto presumption of guilt based on misguided Obama administration dictates, ideological zeal, and fear of bad publicity.”

The result has, inevitably, been jaw-dropping miscarriages of justice. Everyone should want perpetrators of sexual assault to be punished — and in the criminal-justice system, not just by colleges — but elementary protections for the accused can’t be discarded in the process.

One reason the Obama rules were so lopsided is that they were crafted in an atmosphere of moral panic. It was assumed that there was a spiraling epidemic of sexual assault on campus. Taylor and Johnson note, to the contrary, that sexual assaults of female college students dropped by more than half between 1997 and 2013, and that young women in college are less likely to be assaulted than those who are not in college.

The Obama rules have been receiving a battering in the courts, where due process is still taken seriously.

A US district court judge wrote in a 2016 ruling against Brandeis University: “If a college student is to be marked for life as a sexual predator, it is reasonable to require that he be provided a fair opportunity to defend himself and an impartial arbiter to make that decision. Put simply, a fair determination of the facts requires a fair process, not tilted to favor a particular outcome, and a fair and neutral fact-finder, not predisposed to reach a particular conclusion.”

This is the animating spirit behind the DeVos changes. They are still being formulated, but a New York Times report suggests that they will correct the worst excesses of the Obama rules and interject fairness into proceedings that were, shamefully, designed to lack it.


Let's thank Betsy Devos: and let her know that what she is doing is fantastic and that we fully support it and her. The more of us they hear from the better so let's do it.

MeToo movement makes rich men wary of extortion

From The New York Post:

New York City men are protecting themselves from the dark side of the #MeToo movement, including an upswing in false accusations and blackmail, lawyers and private eyes say.

One young technology exec said he has six Nest cams installed inside his swanky downtown condo to “document and provide corroboration for what’s happening in my private life.”

“It’s an insurance policy,” he said.

When he recently brought home a date and realized she was highly intoxicated, he turned to one of the cams and called her a ride home.

“I tried to keep the interaction fully within views of the camera before calling her a Lyft,” he said.

The exec says #MeToo — while giving a voice to victims of sexual assault and harassment — has emboldened other women to falsely accuse well-appointed men for financial gain, fame or vengeance.

“Anonymous accusations are now possible, and the media believes the court of public opinion should not hold itself to anything resembling the court of law,” he said.

He cited an article posted on in January that detailed an anonymous woman’s account of her date with comedian Aziz Ansari. The story, which claimed Ansari pressured her into sex, was criticized as a hit piece that undermined the #MeToo movement.

“It’s disconcerting. So you need to have your own documentation to back up your facts,” the exec said.

“Rich men are not the victims, but we may be the targets.”

Private investigator Herman Weisberg agrees, saying he has seen an increase in extortion cases since #MeToo gained widespread attention last year.

“Since October, I’ve gotten about 25 cases of solid extortion threats,” said Weisberg, managing director of Sage Intelligence Group.

“I think in some cases, a few manipulative people are using the #MeToo movement as leverage . . . It gives their baseless, false claims more teeth.”

Weisberg says it has become a common tactic for extorters to e-mail a man with whom they have had relations and demand an apology in writing.

“They claim that their therapist says that’s the important first step,” Weisberg said.

“Let’s just say a high-powered person writes an e-mail back and says, ‘Wow, I’m really sorry you feel that way, and I’m sorry if I did anything,’ they are basically admitting wrongdoing, whether or not they even know what they are apologizing for.”

Weisberg said he considers it a red flag when an accuser seeks money directly from the accused or threatens to go public on social media.

“If you’re going to do it, do it — go on social media. But don’t threaten the person in advance . . . That’s what we call in the business a ‘cash grab.’ ”

On edge over the wave of sexual-misconduct allegations against prominent figures, professional men in New York say they have been avoiding evening outings with female colleagues.

One corporate lawyer scratched his tradition of grabbing Christmas drinks with a female mentee, and opted for the safer alternative of lunch. Another city businessman now brings his lawyer to meetings with women to avoid any misconstrued messages.

“I even think to myself, ‘Should I be meeting someone at my office at 9 o’clock at night when no one else is there?’ ” admitted criminal-defense attorney Jeremy Saland, who has seen an uptick in #MeToo-inspired extortion cases. “Anyone can make an allegation.”

“Our clients are seeking protection from extorters because they are petrified that if a claim is made public, shared with family or reported to employers, perception — not the truth — will carry the day.”

The tech exec, meanwhile, is trying to stay one step ahead with his in-home security system.

“I think that every single man in New York . . . is being a lot more careful now,” he said, “which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.”


No one is blaming you,bro. Every man nationwide is in the same situation you are in. I know it royally sucks and you've done nothing to deserve this treatment. You only "crime" is having too much money from working hard or smart or both and now some woman believes she is entitled to it. That is what is happening. Men nationwide getting fleeced. Be careful,men and watch your back.

Sexism in Sonoma County

One of my readers told me about these burglaries committed by east coast gangs are related to marijuana. The reason this is not posted on the Among Other Things blog is the following quote from Sonoma County Agricultural Commissioner Tony Linegar. Who said the following quote: “Marijuana is so valuable men are willing to kill for it,” Source.

He told me he wrote to Tony Linegar and told him how he felt about that misandric statement. I'm about to do the same. Perhaps we should all let Mr. Linegar how we feel about his institutionalized misandry.

His email address is:

An acquaintance of Shabani's fatally shot himself in the head last week. The California Highway Patrol said 33-year-old Chris Spotz led officers on a Southern California vehicle pursuit that ended with his death in Riverside County. The CHP said Spotz was driving a stolen pickup.


Know what? I'll bet this bitch was going to falsely accuse this guy of a sex crime. She was most likely aware of the laws in California and took advantage of them. Let's see: she was a minor actress who was struggling in her career. Filing a sex crimes charge against her boyfriend may have resulted in loads of publicity. Not to mention talk shows,morning news shows,major roles in movies and perhaps a book deal. Not to mention the feminists stating she is an immigrant and a domestic violence survivor. This may lead to a trip to Washington DC where she will tell Congress about her ordeal and how as a immigrant woman in a foreign country it was especially hard and that Congress should pass more misandric draconian laws to oppress men to supposedly protect foreign women.

What does the guy get: His name and face splashed across the media in newspapers,tv and the internet. A bunch of talking heads proclaiming his guilt. Feminists groups chanting how men are evil and to pass more draconian laws against men. His hopes of living a normal life go out the window. If he has a job he has to fear harassment there. If he doesn't good luck to him in finding one. People shunning him. People believing in his guilt. The fear of violence by vigilante squads. His life would have been toast and he probably knew that. What choice did he have? This misandrist gave him no choice but do what he did.
