Here Is the List of People Who Have Been Fired Over Sexual Misconduct

Harvey Weinstein was the first, and there is no telling who will be the last.

After Harvey Weinstein, a renowned Hollywood film producer, was accused of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape by dozens of women, media personalities, journalists, and celebrities have lost their jobs, movie deals, and Netflix series as a floodgate of sexual misconduct allegations has been opened.

Here are some of the big names that have been fired or have faced consequences for their actions:

Harvey Weinstein - Film Producer

Mark Halperin - MSNBC Senior Political Analyst

Matt Lauer - NBC television journalist and co-host of "The Today Show"

Matt Zimmerman - NBC Senior Vice President of Booking, News, and Entertainment

Charlie Rose - CBS television journalist

Mike Oreskes - NPR News Executive

David Sweeney - NPR Chief News Editor

Louis C.K. - Comedian who lost his ties to HBO and FX, has had his new movie canceled Netflix special

Kevin Spacey - Actor who is being cut from an upcoming film and was fired from the House of Cards Netflix series

Garrison Keillor - Minnesota Public Radio

While the individuals above are no longer employed or have suffered business losses and losses to their brand, there are others who have been accused of sexual misconduct yet maintain their jobs or their campaigns for political office. Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, and Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) have all faced pressure to resign from their offices or drop from a Senate race but none have done so.

In the days ahead, more allegations are expected to surface.
