Almost a week after the New York Times broke a story of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, former Vice President Joe Biden has called for legal consequences for the producer’s alleged actions.

“It is my hope the statute hasn’t run on some [allegations] because this man deserves more than losing his company,” Biden said in a speech about sexual assault at Rutgers University on Thursday.

The former VP used Weinstein as an example of sexual assailants escaping consequences, describing his alleged actions as “disgusting conduct and behavior of a very powerful figure in Hollywood, a man who had the power to make or break the career of a number of very talented actors, a man who used that power in a disgusting and immoral way.”

Biden also applauded the efforts of the growing list of women who have openly accused Weinstein of sexual assault. “Because of the bravery of so many courageous women speaking up, putting their careers at risk to save other women, this disgusting behavior at least on the part of Harvey Weinstein has been brought to an abrupt and justifiable end,” said Biden.
