A new report from the New York Times details the massive network of enablers who helped Harvey Weinstein cover up years of sexual harassment and assault.
According to the report, Weinstein forced some of his "low-level assistants" to help him set up his encounters with women, and he even made them procure "penile injections" for his erectile dysfunction.
Two of Weinstein's assistants, Sandeep Rehal and Michelle Franklin, told the New York Times that they were forced to give him the injectable erectile dysfunction drugs Caverject and alprostadil, and also helped arrange encounters with women.
Franklin said she was fired in 2012 after she told Weinstein:
"It's not my job, and I don’t want to do it."
Rehal said Weinstein paid for his erectile dysfunction drugs and other stuff for his encounters with a company credit card. Weinstein would pay her $500 for supplying the drugs.
Of course Weinstein's attorneys released this statement:
"At no time during his tenure at either Miramax or TWC did Mr. Weinstein ever utilize company resources for personal expenditures, and in the few instances where there was any confusion, Mr. Weinstein immediately reimbursed the company out of his own pocket."
