Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) signed up with Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Thursday early morning to discuss the Republicans’ recently launched tax plan and Hollywood’s still-developing sexual misconduct scandal with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief and show host Alex Marlow.During the interview
, Marlow asked DeSantis whether the misbehavior scandal surrounding Hollywood– very first stimulated by an October New York Times report about years of sexual harassment and attack accusations versus move mogul Harvey Weinstein– may become the subject of a main Congressional inquiry.advertisement”Look, Hollywood is a cesspool. The idea that Weinstein is alone, and even that noticeable,
I don’t believe is
true, “DeSantis informed Marlow. “I believe this is pervasive behavior in Hollywood, and I think it does implicate the media. I believe they have actually been complicit in it, I believe businesses have been complicit in it.””I think the problem for [Congress] is, exists a jurisdictional hook for government activity, that government has actually been included with regulating or not, and I do not know the answer to that, “he added.”It certainly has to be throughly investigated, so I believe we simply need to determine whether Congress is the appropriate place. However I think whatever we’ve seen come out of the woodwork, I think it’ll be exponentially higher if we, or some entity, really brought in witnesses to affirm about all the filth that took place there.”LISTEN [Discussion on Hollywood begins at 16:40 mark]: DeSantis’comments come as atleast one Republican legislator has required Congressional hearings on Hollywood’s treatment of women.Rep.
Ken Buck(R-CO)informed Breitbart News in an unique interview Thursday that Congress need to assist expose the extensive”criminal conduct”in the home entertainment market.”Now that we are talking about the tax expense, I believe our leadership needs to make it definitely clear that we are not going to allow deductibility of settlements for the conduct of sexual predators and provide a tax benefit to the show business for criminal habits,”Dollar said.More significant Hollywood figures were implicated of sexual misbehavior this week as the scandal has continued into a second month.
