Right on cue, Elon Musk’s political haters are coming for him. And, par for the course, they pulled the most scandalous card. This, just days after he came out against the Democratic Party.
Elon Musk has denied a claim by a former flight attendant for his company SpaceX, who says he exposed himself to her and offered her a horse in exchange for sex.
In characteristic form, Musk responded with a Tweet, saying ” The attacks against me should be viewed through a political lens – this is their standard (despicable) playbook – but nothing will deter me from fighting for a good future and your right to free speech[.]”
Musk went on, Tweeting: “And, for the record, those wild accusations are utterly untrue[,} followed by “But I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened.”
The accusation was made in the form of a Declaration that was signed by a friend of the accuser. According to Business Insider, the Declaration states that “the attendant confided to the friend that after taking the flight attendant job, she was encouraged to get licensed as a masseuse so that she could give Musk massages. It was during one such massage in a private cabin on Musk’s Gulfstream G650ER, she told the friend, that Musk propositioned her.”
Fox Business reports that SpaceX “reportedly paid $250,000 as part of a severance agreement [to the flight attendant] in 2018.” Elon Musk told Business Insider that “there’s a lot more to the story,” and “If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light.”
In further Elon Musk form, he Tweeted this: “Finally, we get to use Elongate as scandal name. It’s kinda perfect.”
Oh boy, the liberals are going to hate that. And that, in turn, makes what he Tweeted rather pleasing. Elon Musk issued an interesting challenge to his accuser, who coincidentally waited 6 years to make her accusation. Will her accuser be able to stand up to that challenge? Let us know what you think in the comments.
