TRENTON-Did Democrat millionaire Wall Street executive take nearly $30,000 in cash from disgraced Hollywood icon Harvey Weinstein? That was a topic of debate at this week’s gubernatorial debate between Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Wall Street mogul Phil Murphy.
This week, an avalanche of Hollywood claims of sexual harassment against Weinstein poured down through media with claims going back decades against him.
Guadagno called upon Murphy to give back the $28,500 the accused serial sexual harasser donated to the Democrat National Committee during his tenure as finance chair between 2006 and 2009. Guadagno claimed Murphy lied into the camera and lied to the people of NJ when he tried to distance himself from Weinstein.
He claim against Murphy has since been confirmed by Federal Election Commission Filings.
Murphy also admitted he was scheduled to appear at a fundraiser for Weinstein.
According to the New York Post, Murphy met with Hollywood’s liberal loud mouth actor Robert DeNiro for a meeting in which Weinstein was present. The trio allegedly discussed hosting a Hollywood style fundraiser to be hosted by Weinstein to raise money for Murphy’s campaign.
The meeting took place on August 24th, weeks before Weinstein’s decades of sexual harassment in Hollywood by Weinstein rose to the surface.
Both DeNiro and Weinstein were planning on endorsing the Wall Street millionaire.
Despite soliciting the accused sexual offender to raise campaign funds, Murphy is now calling on all Democrats to return the money donated by Weinstein.
