Give Harvey a break
Vivek Shah, arrested for extortion last week, may well have lacked moral strength, but you would have trouble arguing that he was any sort of coward. Shah, an actor, was indicted for threatening none other than the fearsome movie impresario Harvey Weinstein. The defendant is alleged to have threatened to kill family members if several million dollars were not wired to an offshore bank account. It does sound like a trying time to be Harvey. Only a few days previously he was granted a restraining order against a man who was threatening to shoot him. Give the not-so-poor old geezer a break. He hasn’t had a proper hit in years.
