Another Hollywood/Manhattan liberal/Democrat named James Toback is being accused of sexual harassment by at least 38 women. Toback isn’t on the level of Harvey Weinstein when it comes to being involved with movies and TV programs, but he is well known to some. Ironically, the last two movies written and directed by Toback were Seduced and Abandoned in 2013 and The Private Life of a Modern Woman this year. James Toback, a big Democrat supporter and donor is probably best known for writing the movie Bugsy in 1991. Toback denies the allegations and claims he’s never met any of the 38 women accusing him of sexual assault.

Writer and director James Toback, who received an Oscar nomination for writing “Bugsy,” has been accused of sexual harassment by 38 women in a report published Sunday in The Los Angeles Times.
In the report, many of the women allege that Toback approached them on the streets of New York City and promised stardom. His meetings would often end with sexual questions and Toback masturbating in front of them or dry-humping them, according to the accounts.
The 72-year-old denied the allegations to The Los Angeles Times, saying he never met any of the women, or if he had it “was for five minutes and (I) have no recollection.”
Thirty-one of the women spoke on the record including Louise Post, who is a guitarist and vocalist for the band Veruca Salt, and “As the World Turns” actress Terri Conn.
