Yet another woman has come forward with an account of sexual harassment by disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein.
According to the Huffington Post, Weinstein “trapped a woman in the hallway of a restaurant that was closed to the public and masturbated in front of her until he ejaculated.”
The woman making the accusations is reporter Lauren Sivan, who was working for a Long Island news station at the time.
Minutes after Huffington Post broke the Story, AP reported that Weinstein is now on “indefinite leave.”

Along with Sivan, actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowen and multiple former Miramax employees have accused the film producer of harassing them in a variety of ways.
Weinstein retained attorney Lisa Bloom, who led the legal charges against former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly for sexual assault, as one of his lawyers in the controversy.
‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’
The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"
Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:
The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t even a competent investor: report
There can be no doubt that high-powered hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein would rather the public know him for his prominence and success as an investor than for the allegations of child sex trafficking, for which he has now been indicted and faces life in prison. And there has for years been mystique surrounding Epstein's business — his wealth fund is so exclusive that it reportedly requires a billion dollars up front from clients.
But according to the Dow Jones' periodical Barron's, Epstein may not even be good at that.
Jon Stewart blasts ‘abomination’ of Rand Paul trying to ‘balance the budget on the backs of’ 9/11 responders
On Wednesday's edition of Fox News' "Special Report," comedian and activist Jon Stewart slammed Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for blocking unanimous consent for a bill to support health care for 9/11 first responders.
"Pardon me if I'm not impressed in any way by Rand Paul's fiscal responsibility virtue signaling," said Stewart to anchor Bret Baier, who appeared on the show with first responder and activist John Feal.
He added that Paul's complaint, that the bill was unfunded, rings hollow given that he "added hundreds of billions of dollars to our deficit" with the GOP tax cuts for billionaires. He castigated Paul for trying to "balance the budget on the backs of the 9/11 first responder community."
