Ques­tions for DA

The New Zealand Herald - - WORLD -

The New York City pros­e­cu­tor who chose not to charge Har­vey We­in­stein two years ago af­ter he was ac­cused of grop­ing a young woman said that the de­ci­sion was not in­flu­enced by cam­paign con­tri­bu­tions. Man­hat­tan District At­tor­ney Cyrus Vance has taken thou­sands of dol­lars in do­na­tions over the years from David Boies, a top lawyer in New York whose clients have in­cluded the We­in­stein Co. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives for both Vance and Boies say the DA had no in­volve­ment and never con­tacted prose­cu­tors in 2015 when po­lice in­ves­ti­gated a model’s ac­cu­sa­tion that We­in­stein grabbed her breasts. Yes­ter­day, We­in­stein told Page Six TV he’s sad­dened that Hol­ly­wood has shunned him and “dev­as­tated” by his wife Ge­orgina Chap­man leav­ing him. Ac­tresses Cara Dele­vi­gne and Lea Sey­doux joined the long list of ac­cusers against the film mogul.
