Don’t hold your breath waiting for Sen. Diane Feinstein to return a single cent of donations from sexual abuser Harvey Weinstein. She talks a good talk, but at the end of the day, its all about the money.
MSNBC Chuck Todd asked the California legislator whether she would return contributions from Weinstein and instead of saying yes, after all the sexual abuse/cash settlement revelations that have occurred, she couldn’t fix her mouth to say yes. She tiptoed around the question and ended with “I’ll take a look.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) hesitated to say she would return money donated to her by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein after decades of sexual harassment complaints against him emerged, saying in an interview airing Sunday she will “take a look.”
According to federal records, Weinstein gave Feinstein $375 in 1992 and $1,000 in 1994, the Los Angeles Times reported. Weinstein, an Oscar-winning producer and major Democratic donor, has taken an indefinite leave of absence from his company after lurid details of sexual harassment came to light in a bombshell article by the New York Times.
“Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd asked Feinstein if she planned to return contributions she received from Weinstein. Fellow California Sen. Kamala Harris (D.) already said she will donate money she received from Weinstein to charity.
“I don’t know that I’ve received any. I’ll certainly take a look, and then I’ll make a decision,” Feinstein said.
As soon as the story came out, she probably put the money in an interest-bearing escrow account under the name Betty Flintstone. When it reaches a certain dollar amount, she’ll proclaim from the highest mountain top how she has taken no money from that dirty old man, and THEN return it.
I once heard a story of how natives in one location caught monkeys to sell. They put food in a container that was fastened to a tree. The greedy monkeys could get their open hands in the opening of the container, but closed couldn’t get it out. The monkeys would find the food, grab a handful, and as their captors approached were too greedy, or dumb, or both, to drop the food and get free. It seems we have politicians that are no smarter than those monkeys.
The bottom line is she knows, she just doesn’t care. She’s just like Hillary Clinton and all the other Democrat politicians – as long as the coffers are full, it matters not from wince it came. Power and money are above any disgusting, immoral behaviors in Hollywood and politics. Hillary is a great example, i.e., defending her husband’s rapist behavior.
Those on the left won’t return any money, and the mainstream news won’t report it, however, if he gave money to someone on the right, that person is a lamb for the slaughter.
