Queens has been the breeding ground for some of biggest names in entertainment, including Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel Fran Drescher, Jerry Seinfeld and Marvin Hamlish. Harvey Weinstein joins that list, whose shame now exceeds his fame.
He was born in Flushing in 1952, grew up in the Electchester housing complex, and graduated from John Bowne High School. Harvey earned a bachelor's degree at the University of Buffalo and received an honorary doctorate in humane letters from SUNY Buffalo in 2000. That doctorate is probably the only humane thing about him.
He was cruel to many women, but generous to top Democrats like Senator Charles Schumer, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Hillary Clinton. Schumer & Cuomo said they will return his money or donate it to charity.
Will Hillary do the same, including the $250,000 he gave to the Clinton Foundation? Stay tuned.
