I still want to know why he included the 'virgin' in there.

The newest scandal, in California anyway, is assemblyman, Matt Dababneh, who's accused by a lobbyist of masturbating in front of her and then asking her to touch his genitals.

Two things spring to mind: Did the guy think this approach would actually work?

Doesn't the guy have a mom, sisters, daughters or girl cousins and how would he feel if someone did something like that to them?

Another woman, a former co-worker, said he bragged about his conquests in the office and called her, "Ellen," after Ellen Degeneres, when she wouldn't succumb to his advances.

I sincerely cannot comprehend.

He denies everything, of course.

I think JO overstepped the mark just a bit there. He’s acutely aware that he’s on the right side of the debate, of course, but being pissy and rude is no way to behave. Even when you’re dealing with someone who might be a sexual predator.

And - arguably - it wasn’t fair that he brought it up.

Never liked john oliver, he's smug and self righteous as fuck. He thinks he's the smartest person in the room. He was opportunistic, and was being a dick.

I don't agree that he thinks he's the smartest guy in the room, but mostly do on the other parts. He can be kinda self righteous like his mentor, Jon Stewart. Does Hoffman deserve public shaming? Maybe, but I think that info gets out there soon enough. Maybe I'm just feeling generous today.

Kinda ironic after he did play Tootsie.

Video footage of part of their dialogue is here

I think Hoffman comes out of it well. But I never know what to think anymore.

John Hockenberry was accused four days ago in New York magazine article. A bunch of radio staffers have come out to say he was a bully and sent them inappropriate emails and messages.

I thought he was one of the good guys, too.

Read in the SF Chronicle this morning that local tech companies are flying in models for their holiday parties. Seemed like an interesting twist in pretzel logic in this #metoo atmosphere.
