On 5 October, Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual abuse and the dam broke.
Since then, dozens of well-known Americans have been accused of sexual misconduct of some kind. This isn’t drip-drip. It’s a flood.
The list includes film stars such as Kevin Spacey, politicians such as Roy Moore, and journalists such as Mark Halperin.
The deluge of allegations swelled this week, engulfing big media names.
While people in other countries have also been accused, the majority of cases are American.
