Lisa Bloom is a “feminist” sexual assault attorney who has represented many known figures. She most recently represented Harvey Weinstein. However, she quickly resigned from the case.
Bloom’s own mother, a celebrity attorney, vowed to fight her daughter in court if she was offered the chance to represent alleged victims.
And Lena Dunham, among the few Hollywood liberals to speak directly about the Weinstein case, had blasted Bloom as well.
Bloom tweeted out, “I have resigned as an advisor to Harvey Weinstein. My understanding is that Mr. Weinstein and his board are moving toward an agreement.”
However, Bloom has been accused of trying to use money to pay off Weinstein’s victims, and is being blasted from all sides.
Radio host Tammy Bruce slams Bloom for trying to ‘silence women using money’ during her interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
Fox News Insider reports:
Bruce said actress Rose McGowan, one of the top names accusing Weinstein of sexual assault, was contacted by Bloom through intermediaries and offered money to stifle her story.
McGowan effectively told Bloom “I can’t be bought,” Bruce said, adding that the actress was first offered $1 million and later $6 million to change her tune.
Bruce said the incident occurred just before the New York Times ran with their Weinstein profile.
Another incident that Bloom was reportedly a party to was that of disgraced Amazon studios executive Roy Price.
Price was also forced to resign after being hit with sexual harassment allegations. According to Bruce, Bloom was part of his defense team as well.
She said that both instances were “an interesting attempt” to “either silence women through money or to threaten them with it.”
Carlson added, “If that isn’t the definition of corruption, I don’t know what is.”
