Weinstein accusers endorse Manhattan DA candidate Lucy Lang
A group of women, including Mann, who said they were victimized by Weinstein, endorsed former prosecutor Lucy Lang on Tuesday, Nov. 17 to replace the Manhattan district attorney who put the movie mogul behind bars. Lang, one of several women campaigning to become Manhattan’s first female state prosecutor, called their endorsement an “incredible honor." Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who oversaw Weinstein's prosecution, has not said whether he’ll seek a fourth term. Lang is among a host of candidates who have announced they are running for Manhattan district attorney. Lang was an assistant district attorney in Manhattan for 12 years before leaving in 2018 to become director of the Institute for Innovation in Prosecution at John Jay College.
