Investigators: Harvey Weinstein’s Personnel File Has ‘Mysteriously Disappeared’

Serial Hollywood rapist Harvey Weinstein's personnel file has gone missing, according to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Serial Hollywood rapist Harvey Weinstein’s personnel file has mysteriously gone missing from his former company, according to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. 

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Schneiderman said that his office was told by Weinstein’s former company that the file was missing – a fact that will likely impair the ongoing investigation into the movie mogul’s dark past.

CBS News reports: Schneiderman launched a probe of The Weinstein Company in October after the New York Times and the New Yorker reported on allegations by multiple actresses and models who said Weinstein coerced them into unwanted sex. Some women have accused Weinstein of raping them. Weinstein was terminated from the company shortly after the allegations came to light.

“We obtained a form of Mr. Weinstein’s personnel file; we were told that the physical personnel file had gone missing, which is another issue of concern to us,” Schneiderman said. “I don’t know the number of complaints, but there were certainly dozens of formal complaints and many more informal complaints over the years.”

Schneiderman said his office’s four-month investigation of the company found “a pervasive pattern” of sexual harassment, intimidation and abuse.

The investigation found an “extensive cover-up” of “despicable” allegations that should have prompted formal investigations at the company, the attorney general said.

A proposed sale of the company is in question after Schneiderman filed a lawsuit Sunday saying any deal would have to include assurances of financial compensation for women abused by Weinstein.

The lawsuit accuses the producer of “repeatedly and persistently” sexually harassing female workers in violation of state law.

Weinstein has repeatedly denied all accusations of nonconsensual sex.

His attorney released a statement saying many of the allegations against his client are “without merit.”
