Dem Sen Kaine on Harvey Weinstein: ‘Any Leader Should Condemn’ His ‘Low-Life Behavior’


Tuesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Sen. Tim Kaine (R-VA), the 2016 Democratic vice-presidential nominee, spoke out about the reported sexual harassment allegations aimed at Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Kaine was asked about his former running mate Hillary Clinton’s silence on Weinstein and argued that “any leader,” regardless of political affiliation, should condemn his alleged behavior. Partial transcript as follows: CAMEROTA: Hillary Clinton spoke for 90 minutes last night in California. But she didn’t mention Harvey Weinstein. Why not? KAINE: Look, you know, Alisyn, I’m nobody’s press secretary. I’m a U.S. senator and I’m telling you that sexual harassment is unacceptable. And I really think it’s low-life behavior. Hillary Clinton speaks out against sexual harassment, often. And I’m sure she’ll have a word to say when the time is right for her. But I don’t — you know, I’m not — I’m not anybody’s press secretary. (CROSSTALK) CAMEROTA: But you would recommend that she do that, that she — ? KAINE: Any leader, any leader should condemn this. I mean, I have a 22-year-old daughter who is starting off, you know, in the work world. And I — when you read the stories about young women feeling pressured by somebody in

Bomb Threat Evacuates Michigan Jewish Organization – Forward

Google Maps

(JTA) A bomb threat called in to a Jewish agency in Ann Arbor, Michigan, forced the evacuation of the building.

The caller to the Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County on Tuesday morning said there would be an explosion in the building in 20 minutes, the MLive news website reported, citing Ann Arbor police. The caller, who had a male voice, did not make any other specific threats and did not threaten the Jewish community specifically.

More than 100 clients and staff were in the office when the receptionist received the threat. The agency is located in an office building, which was evacuated. Police determined there were no explosives there.

In February, a bomb threat was called into the Hebrew Day School located at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Ann Arbor. No bomb was found.

Swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti were painted on an Ann Arbor skate park last week.
