Call for Dems to return donations

- Carl Campanile and Kirstan Colnley

Harvey Weinstein is becoming a political liability for Democrats following accusation­s that he harassed young female employees for decades.

Conservati­ve activists demanded Democratic officehold­ers dump their Weinstein donations.

“If the Democratic Party purports itself to be the champion of women, they ought to lead by example in returning or donating the donations received from Harvey Weinstein,” said America Rising PAC’s Alexandra Smith.

Weinstein has given Gov. Cuomo’s campaigns more than $100,000 over the past decade. He’s also given $5,400 to Sen. Charles Schumer, $71,600 to former President Barack Obama and $38,990 to Hillary Clinton. Cuomo declined to comment.
