(DAILY MAIL) -- Rose McGowan said she is no longer a 'Hollywood Democrat,' at a press conference in which she endorsed Republican attorney and talk-show host running for California Governor Larry Elder, just days after accusing current Governor Gavin Newsom's wife of bribing her in order to suppress her rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
'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 said she was asked by California First Lady Jennifer Siebel Newsom during a 2017 phone call, which she says she abruptly ended by hanging up. Her comments were first reported by the Washington Post.
Boies, the Democratic super-lawyer that represented Weinstein, reportedly gave Gov. Newsom a $300 bottle of wine, weeks after leading a campaign against Weinstein's accusers, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
