We discuss the newest revelations in the Harvey Weinstein case. His wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, has announced her intention to divorce him. The announcement came after a new round of allegations that Weinsein had raped multiple women. Only last week, he stated that Chapman “stands 100 percent behind me.” We asked in our twitter poll if you believe that federal investigators should investigate the Hollywood sex scandal.
An illegal immigrant is suing for her right to an abortion while in custody. Texas attorney general Ken Paxton said in response to the lawsuit that Texas must not become “a sanctuary state for abortions.” The ACLU’s lawsuit claims the government already issues funds to organizations that provide health services to individuals, including the undocumented immigrants. We do not know at this time if the immigrant in custody was able to successfully attain an abortion, and if she now has an American child.

#MGM Entertainment is pushing back against a new time line being shared by the Clark County Sheriff’s
Here is an excerpt from the article.
According to authorities, Paddock shot the guard at 9:59 p.m. — six minutes before he opened fire on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, killing 58 people and injuring nearly 500 more.
Officers with the LVPD were said to have arrived at his 32nd floor suite at 10:17 p.m., where they found the wounded guard about a minute later. This is where things don’t add up.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo had previously said that Paddock stopped shooting at concertgoers at 10:15 p.m. — after being spooked by the guard. But this couldn’t have happened if the guard was shot before the killing started. So it’s ultimately unclear why he stopped firing.
Another question that remains is what Campos did exactly after being shot by Paddock.
Authorities have not said whether he notified casino security or called for backup — and it’s also unclear if any other staff members or guests knew about the initial incident.
