    The accusations against Weinstein started the #MeToo movement.

    After a bit of whining, a judge sentenced disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein to 23 years in prison.

    A jury found Weinstein guilty of third-degree rape and a criminal sex act last month.

    New York Supreme Court Justice James Burke handed Weinstein the sentence after a seven-week trial.

    From The Wall Street Journal:

    A Manhattan jury last month convicted Mr. Weinstein on two counts: first-degree criminal sexual act, for forcing oral sex on “Project Runway” production assistant Miriam Haley in 2006; and third-degree rape, for having nonconsensual sex with then-aspiring actress Jessica Mann in 2013.

    He was acquitted of the most severe charges—two counts of predatory sexual assault, which carried a possible life sentence. The jury ultimately decided against convicting Mr. Weinstein of raping former “Sopranos” star Annabella Sciorra in the early 1990s.

    Mr. Weinstein faced a range of five to 25 years in prison on the criminal sexual-act charge and up to four years in prison for third-degree rape.

    The jury listened to 28 witnesses, including six women who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

    I didn’t follow the sordid details of the case. Was he convicted on actual evidence, or was it all “believe the woman”-type fluff?

    THE SCREWING YOU GET AIN’T WORTH THE SCREWING YOU GET

    All that’s missing from weinstein’s performance with his walker is an appearance with his walker on the New Jerry Lewis Telethon.

    While I am no fan of any aspect of the Sexual Revolution, and am not amused by the Hollywood culture of the casting couch, I wonder how many of Weinstein’s accusers are women who thought they were paying their showbiz dues, but found that careers didn’t pan out?
