G. B. T. president and they really won over by his message they say Hey we see shades of Barack Obama in people or a judge now I also shouldn't discount Bernie Sanders he's raised close to nine hundred thousand from the entertainment business for his campaign and he has a very enthusiastic number of supporters people like Adam McKay and Susan Sarandon and Michael Moore they're out there on the campaign trail for him it's just that he is not relying on these types of high dollar fund raisers to finance his campaign he's he's doing it through these small dollar contributions and his messages definitely resonating even in the elite circles of Hollywood but I have to add that it's also tends to be the left side of Hollywood as opposed to the center left so let's talk about the right side of Hollywood it isn't very big but have there been any conservative people in the industry who have come out and said things in favor of or given money to president trump we have people who have come out in favor of truck with denim with him very publicly from the star people like Jon Voight there is a reluctance to come out publicly in support president trump because there is a lot of blowback I've talked to trump supporters who said they just don't want their names associated with him because things are so polarized at this time but if Bernie Sanders is the nominee we'll see I've talked to centrist donors who are very concerned about Sanders getting the nomination they won't come out and say that that is going to force them into trump's hands the old they'll say I'm just gonna sit it out if he ends up being the nominee but we'll see and once the primary and Nevada is over will there be a return of candidates coming back to LA looking for more support not yet Joe Biden that was supposed to have an advantage this week in southern California but that was rescheduled because he has to spend so much time on the campaign trail after a pretty dismal performance in Iowa and New Hampshire but we're now getting down to just a week away not just from super Tuesday but also from the South Carolina vote so this is this is crunch time for these campaigns and taking them off the campaign trail it has to be a very savvy calculation that it is going to end up being worth it to fly into California for a fundraiser we'll probably see the candidates walk to California hi not this weekend but the following weekend for those first couple days before super Tuesday Ted Johnson is the Washington correspondent for deadline worry covers politics and entertainment Ted thanks.
2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates Visit Hollywood
"California presidential primary is less than two weeks. Away and Democratic candidates are in a mad dash to raise money and improve their name recognition. And where better to build both than in Hollywood. Ted Johnson is the Washington correspondent for deadline where he covers politics and entertainment. Ted Welcome back to the frame. Thank you for having so who came to town? And what did they do? Well Amy Klobuchar was at the home of Lorraine Sheinberg. She's the widow of Sydney Shamburg. Who was very top executive at universal and also very politically active and in his career and the rain. Sheinberg played the wife to officer Brody in Jaws yes And it kind of speaks to. What type of support she's getting. People were moderates in the entertainment industry. Probably a little older than you may see from some of the Bernie Sanders side and then p. Buddha judge is in town on Thursday. They've been out here raising money at the home of Seth Macfarlane who is very enthusiastic about his support for the former South Bend Mayor. It's also being co-hosted by league. Annuals I assume most of these events are relatively similar. You pay a couple of bucks you show up at somebody's house maybe get a photo shake hands and here twenty minutes speech. Do they all fall? Pretty much under that same pattern. Yes pretty much. So it's usually the candidate delivering a variation on their stump speech that you can hear in public on the campaign trail sometimes throwing in a few insider risk comments and sometimes doing acuity with donors who are the kinds of people who are hosting these events and are they aligned with one candidate or do. They spread their love around. You are seeing some of that but I think what really distinguishes. This presidential cycle past ones is here. We are just two weeks out from Super Tuesday and there are a lot of those traditional donors. The people who've been involved cycle after cycle who have not declared their support for one candidate or the other. I'm thinking people like Steven Spielberg Jeffrey Katzenberg. Hyme Savan these people who are incredibly involved in what they have done This cycle is. They either sat it out or just spread their money around among multiple candidates so as an observer. It's a it can be a little confusing. Just because someone has given to a candidate does not necessarily mean that. They're going to vote for that person or they're going to endorse a lot of people are just seeing how this plays itself out. We're talking with deadlines Ted Johnson about campaigning for president. In not that long ago I remember and you do as well the town being pretty much split between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during the primaries has one candidate really kind of gone to the top in terms of leading Hollywood attention and money right now. Well it's interesting because if you look at the numbers Comma Harris actually is collected more money from the entertainment business than any other candidate. But she's not even in the race anymore. She's followed by people to judge who is raised. I think it's one point. Two million so far from the entertainment business is quite extraordinary that he's raised that amount. Given that a year ago he was unknown and he came in and really became kind of a darling of the entertainment industry very quickly that I think. A lot of donors a saw his candidacy as potentially historic he'd be the first LGBT president and they really won over by his message. They say hey. We see shades of Barack Obama in people to judge now also shouldn't discount Bernie Sanders. He's raised close to nine hundred thousand for the entertainment business for his campaign and he has a very enthusiastic number of supporters people. Like Adam McKay and Susan Sarandon and Mike. I'm war. They're out there on the campaign trail for him. It's just that he is not relying on these types of high dollar fundraisers to finance his campaign. He's is doing it through these small dollar contributions in his messages. Definitely resonating even in the elite circles of Hollywood but I have to add that. It's also tends to be the left side of Hollywood as opposed to the center La. So let's talk about the right side of Hollywood. It isn't very big but have there been any conservative people in the industry who have come out and said things in favor of or given money to president trump we have people who have come out in favor of trump. Benham with him very publicly from the star. People Jon voight. There is a reluctance to come out publicly in support president trump because there is a lot of blowback. I've talked to trump supporters. Who said they just don't want their names associated with him because things are so polarized at this time but if Bernie Sanders nominee will see. I've talked to centrist donors who are very concerned about sanders getting the nomination. They won't come out and say that that is going to force them into trump's hands. They'll they'll say I'm just GONNA sit it out if he ends up being the nominee but we'll see and once the primary in Nevada is over. Will there be a return of candidates coming back to La looking for more support now yet Joe Biden was post to have an event this week in southern California but that was rescheduled. Because he has to spend so much time on the campaign trail after a pretty dismal performance. In Iowa and New Hampshire. But we're now getting down to just a week away not just from Super Tuesday but also from the South Carolina. Vote so this is. This is crunch time for these campaigns in taking them off the campaign trail has to be a very Savvy calculation that it is going to end up being worth it to fly into California for our fundraiser will probably see the candidates flocked to California not this weekend but the following weekend for those first couple days before Super Tuesday. Ted Johnson is the Washington correspondent for deadline where he covers politics and entertainment. Ted thanks so much for coming back on the
"lorraine sheinberg" Discussed on KCRW
"The year there's no question that the guns were big campaign issue for Democrats this past November but the words still matter you still have to get it right he says he was also worried that the definition of assault weapon in the bill was too broad and might unintentionally include other firearms he says he still supports an assault weapons ban in so form I just didn't think we could afford to spend the time necessary to fix this a spokesperson for governor Ralph nor them says he expressed disappointment but says he's proud of several other gun safety measures that have advanced this legislative session those measures include universal background checks in a red flag law that would allow authorities to temporarily take a person's guns if they're deemed a threat to themselves or others governor nor them promises to re introduce the assault weapons ban next year for NPR news I'm with the events in Richmond as we move on to our next story a note to our listeners this conversation is going to be about sexual assault and it might be a disturbing for some of you more than ninety women have accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct in the case jurors in Manhattan will deliberate this week concerns the experiences of two of those women they both accuse one scene of sexual assault and they both kept in contact with him even had consensual sex with him after the alleged attacks that understand how risky this cases for prosecutors we're joined by a Gruber she's a former defense attorney she teaches at the university of Colorado welcome to the program thank you I'm happy to be here so we want to make clear we're not saying it's unusual for this to happen to victims but it's not so common for these cases to make it to court right where accusers have continued relations with the suspect after the alleged attacks yes absolutely I think depending on the nature of the relationship between the two parties that prosecutors would be reluctant to bring a case where there is significant amounts of romantic contact after the alleged rape you said romantic contact how do prosecutors look at this how do they figure out whether or not the contact that happens after is going to be a problem for trying to prosecute the case well I think you have to look at the entire context so for example if you have two people who work together and there's an alleged sexual assault it makes sense that they're gonna have contact at work or if you have a situation where a couple is already involved there already in a romantic relationship you could have a sexual assault and the relationship could continue what's a little more unusual is when the first contact is a sexual assault and then there after a relationship builds a sexual and romantic relationship that just as a matter of common sense to a lot of jurors is going to require some more explanation can you talk about how this prosecutor has approach this case then what the prosecutor is going to try to do is contextualize the post race relationship saying okay this was a man in a position of power these were two women who wanted to break into this industry and had to stay on his good side also they brought in a victim expert who could explain that sometimes when a sexual assault occurs and you have the assault or in your life you try to move on by making sense of the sexual assault by saying okay maybe this really wasn't an assault it was consensual you know maybe everything is okay here I want to talk about Harvey Weinstein's layered Donna return now she said this tonight line in December what happens in these circumstances where women don't want to take certain responsibilities for their actions we in Fanta lies ourselves you will have to know that when you make certain choices there's a risk when you make those choices it seems like she's making an argument that having a continued relationship with the suspect is a choice that people also have to deal with the consequences of well I think that's right and it might be a choice that we wouldn't agree with but that's the wrong question the question is what does this post event behavior say about the credibility of the complaining so I think the defense implication is if you have this kind of relationship it must not have been rape because what are the chances that a woman would be forcibly violently raped and then send loving tax keep giving the rape is their telephone number and have a sexual relationship with them that's the argument how higher the stakes for sex crimes victims more broadly I mean could the outcome of this case which is so high profile set a kind of president going forward I think so I think that already people who have been subject to sexual violence are extremely reluctant to get involved in the system for good and bad reasons it is a hard thing to go through a criminal trial finding out that Harvey Weinstein with all the evidence against him and all the media was acquitted is probably gonna be something that victims take into account before they come forward but I would counsel that these are unusual circumstances Harvey Weinstein is an unusual defended and even if Harvey Weinstein wins which I think is unlikely but even if he does I would counsel that victims should understand that this kind of trial is unusual and not necessarily representative of the vast majority of sexual assault cases that go through the criminal system that's I agree burger former defense attorney teaches now at the university of Colorado thank you for
