Before the New York Times story on the decades of sexual assault allegations against him came out (not to mention the more recent and more horrifying New Yorker piece), Harvey Weinstein was a major donor to the campaigns for several Democrat politicians. A few of them—including Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren—have already begun donating contributions they received from Weinstein to charity, but Hillary Clinton, one of the most high-profile candidates he ever backed was frustratingly silent.
Now, though, she has released a brief statement on Weinstein, condemning his behavior and highlighting the need for more people to support those who come forward with similar allegations. Here’s Clinton’s statement in full:
I was shocked and appalled by the revelation about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.
That statement seems to be the entirety of Clinton’s remarks on the matter, so it looks like she hasn’t expressed any intention to follow Booker and Warren’s lead by donating Weinstein’s past campaign contributions to charity, but the fact that she doesn’t currently hold an elected office is probably an important factor in that.
