Joe Biden Hopes Statues of Limitations Haven't Run Out on Harvey Weinstein

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 13 October 2017  (1 week ago)
Almost a week after the New York Times broke a story of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct, former Vice President Joe Biden has called for legal consequences for the producer's alleged actions. "It is my hope the statute hasn’t run on some [allegations] because this man deserves more than losing his company,” Biden said in a speech about sexual assault at Rutgers University on Thursday. Biden also applauded the efforts of the growing list of women who have openly accused Weinstein of sexual assault. As a senator, he introduced the Violence Against Women Act, a bill signed by Bill Clinton in 1994 to systemically improve the investigation and prosecution process of violent crimes against women.
