Looks like the so-called "email prankster" has managed to spoof Harvey Weinstein. Harvey Weinstein, in a "private conversation" with former counsel, Lisa Bloom reportedly explained,
"Lisa, I've had time to think, and I do understand why you felt unable to remain on my team." Little did Lisa know, this was not, in fact, Harvey at all, but a prankster posing as him.
"Thank you, Harvey… The new round of far more serious allegations was not made known to me so I could not have realized. But I am not revealing any of that publicly because that's between you and me."
Well, it was for a short while anyway. The email prankster, pretending to be Harvey, pressed the very real Lisa Bloom to be "candid" about why she left. "Sexual assault," was the short, if not sweet reply. The Weinstein story just keeps growing. Not only has Lisa Bloom left as counsel, but her mother, Gloria Allred will be representing some of the victims. Hollywood and Democratic donors who received money from Weinstein are slowly coming out of the woodwork to decry the inexcusable acts of the cinematic sexual deviant. Despite initially claiming no wrongdoing, the most recent allegations regarding actual rape are sure to turn a few heads even in Hollyweird.

The prankster also fooled Weinstein himself, posing as former White House communications director Anita Dunn. The real Anita Dunn was reportedly reached after the <i>Times</i> story dropped opening Pandora's box.
"I'm sick - I need your advice. All my best, Harvey," Harvey told the phony Dunn.
"I'm sure redemption can be found Harvey, but only if you're willing to be as brave as those who have found the strength to stand up to you," phony Dunn replied.
"You should be willing to accept your fate graciously, and not seek to deny or discredit those who your behavior has affected." Wise words from an email hoaxster. "I agree." Harvey offered. Time will tell as to whether or not Weinstein is willing to face the music.
