Actress and #MeToo activist Rose McGowan officially endorsed Larry Elder for California governor on Sunday while alleging that Gavin Newsom’s wife tried to bribe her into staying silent about convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein.
During her speech in Los Angeles on Sunday, McGowan detailed how the governor’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, called her up in 2017 on behalf of former Harvey Weinstein attorney David Boies to ask, “what it would take to make” her happy enough to keep quiet about Weinstein. The phone call allegedly took place six months prior to the New York Times launching its bombshell report against the disgraced movie producer and Democratic Party donor.
“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 recalled.
“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 added.
