Hollywood actress Rose McGowan publicly accused Gavin Newsom’s wife of participating in Harvey Weinstein’s hush money schemes a charge that could hand the California governor’s race to Larry Elder.
“When I finally got on the phone with Jennifer Siebel Newsom for what I assume was about movie projects, imagine my surprise when she says, ‘what can Boies Schiller [law firm] do to make you happy?’” McGowan said.
“Again, I had no idea who that was, so I just said nothing and hung up on her. That was my last contact with her,” she said.
“This is not a country or a state for everyone. This is a country for the few,” McGowan said of the Dems. “I really wish I had better news. It gives me no pleasure to be the bearer of truth, but the truth is sometimes ugly.”
“Why not change?” she said announcing her support for Elder. “Why not go big? Why not put a stake in the heart of evil? Because that’s what this really is. This is good and this is evil.”
“My money’s on Elder,” she said.
“I really appreciate anybody watching or reading this to think differently. To be brave. Do something that’s weird. Like maybe voting Republican, even though it will feel strange.”
A spokesperson for Jennifer Siebel Newsom publicly denied the allegations:
“What is being alleged is a complete fabrication. It’s disappointing but not surprising to see political opponents launch these false attacks just days before the election.
“Their limited correspondence has been strictly as fellow survivors of sexual assault and in Jennifer’s former capacity leading the Representation Project, an organization that fights limiting gender stereotypes and norms.”
