Fueled by the return of strong winds, the wildfires tearing through California wine country exploded in size and number as authorities ordered new evacuations and the death toll climbed to 23 – a figure expected to rise higher still.

The New York GOP slammed Cuomo for failing to return all the campaign contributions he received from scandal-tarred movie executive Harvey Weinstein.

The Democratic National Committee itself stopped short of promising a full giveaway of Weinstein cash, pledging to give “over $30,000” of the more than $300,000 donations he made to political groups that work to elect women.

Hillary Clinton tore into Weinstein over the plethora of sexual abuse allegations against him, vaguely suggesting she would give away to charity the money he’s contributed to her political campaigns.

Clinton said that the donations will be “part of” the 10 percent of her income that she donates to charity each year, but it was unclear whether she meant that the money from Weinstein would be in addition to that existing amount.

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain is not letting Clinton off the hook for her friendship with Weinstein, calling her response “shameful in its deflection and its disingenuousness.”

Bob Weinstein and three other members of the rapidly dwindling board of The Weinstein Company said they were shocked by the allegations and unaware of payments made to women who complained about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior. But it appears the company knew of the situation for at least several years.

The NYPD has Weinstein back in its sights — dispatching detectives to search for evidence against the disgraced movie mogul who’s been accused of rape and sex assault by at least three women.

Under the state constitution, Cuomo could – if he so chooses – remove from office Manhattan DA Cy Vance Jr., who is under fire for declining to prosecute cases against Weinstein and Trump’s eldest children and accepting campaign cash from lawyers linked to those would-be defendants in the process.

Vance said his office did not have enough evidence to prosecute Weinstein in 2015, despite an audio tape an Italian model made for the police on which the producer apologized when the woman asked him why he had touched her breasts.

Civil rights attorney Marc Fliedner announced a last minute write-in run against Vance.

Weinstein says of the crisis engulfing him and of his wife, Georgina Chapman, leaving him: “I am profoundly devastated. I have lost my wife and kids, whom I love more than anything else.”
