Harvey Weinstein accused in new expose of raping three women

  Harvey Weinstein accused in new expose of raping three women Accused serial sexual predator Harvey Weinstein once bizarrely boasted that he didn’t need to drug any women for sex — unlike Bill Cosby. The unsettling bit of braggadocio was recounted in a lengthy piece by The New Yorker that accuses the Hollywood pariah of raping three women during a two-decade stretch of predatory behavior that went unexposed. The story, written by Ronan Farrow and posted online Tuesday, charges the recently fired Weinstein’s grotesque behavior was far worse than the sordid details exposed last week by The New York Times. Thirteen women interviewed for the piece charged that Weinstein sexually harassed or sexually assaulted them. In addition to the rape charges, four victims claim Weinstein exposed himself or masturbated in front of them. Oscar-winning actress Mira Sorvino and “Pulp Fiction” co-star Rosanna Arquette both told the magazine they rejected Weinstein’s crude come-ons, only to find themselves removed from projects or passed over for roles. Both suspect Academy Award winner Weinstein was behind their career problems. The Cosby comment came after Weinstein targeted an attractive company temp named Emily Nestor, 25, and took her to breakfast in December 2014, the story reported. Nestor told the magazine that Weinstein was soon crowing about his celebrity sexual conquests, and asking to hold her hand. She said no, with Weinstein replying, “Oh, the girls always say no. You know, ‘No, no.
