On Sunday afternoon, actress Rose McGowan will meet with Republican California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder to speak to the media. The event comes only two days before the state’s recall election, in which Elder is attempting to defeat incumbent Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, contacted McGowan six months before she came out with sexual assault accusations against Harvey Weinstein, according to McGowan. Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, said she had received a letter from Weinstein’s attorney, David Boies.
“So this woman, I don’t know, some blonde lady name with the last name of the Newsom, cold-calls me, and was like, David Boies wants to know what it would take to make you happy,” McGowan explained to Dave Rubin on the Rubin Report YouTube show.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, according to financial disclosures, Newsom has accepted expensive bottles of wine from Boies, including one in 2017, roughly six weeks after the publication of a New Yorker report alleging that Boies attempted to dig up dirt on Weinstein accusers, among them McGowan.
Fox News reached out to Newsom’s office for comment on the accusations but did not get a response right away.
Beginning at 1 p.m. local time, Elder and McGowan will make an appearance at the Luxe Hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
Elder told Fox LA that McGowan “has produced emails that were sent to her from Gavin Newsom’s wife.” and that he does not know whether or not McGowan’s accusations are genuine.
McGowan has been an outspoken opponent of Newsom’s administration. A video she uploaded on Thursday in which she slammed him and his wife, calling them both “frauds,” was widely shared on social media.
“I have the receipts. I wish I didn’t. I wish you were all real. I wish you really did help, but you don’t and you’re on the side of wrong.”
