While disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein worries he’s being “forgotten,” federal tax authorities sure won’t be forgetting their cut from Weinstein’s accusers if a $25 million settlement materializes.
Jury selection was scheduled to start Tuesday in Weinstein’s Manhattan criminal trial, a day after Los Angeles prosecutors charged Weinstein in a separate case on counts including rape.
