This is Newsom’s 3rd emergency extension which will take the state past the two year mark under his emergency Covid order.
The California governor’s first Covid emergency order was declared March 4, 2020.
“Winter is coming. Winter is here,” Newsom said as he announced he’s extending emergency powers.
Newsom took off to Mexico for a $200,000 family vacation shortly after extending his emergency powers.
The California Globe exclusively obtained photos of Newsom at the La Datcha Cabo San Lucas villa:
The Globe has received several photos and a now-removed Tweet from sources who were in Cabo San Lucas in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur over Thanksgiving at the same time California Gov. Gavin Newsom and his family vacationed.
The sources said the Newsoms stayed nearby at a $23,000 to $29,000 per night villa, La Datcha Cabo San Lucas villa, owned by Russian entrepreneur and businessman Oleg Tinkov. The sources said from their rental they could see the 10,000 to 12,000 square foot villa, and said it comes with two chefs, four to five servers, personal trainers, and the like.
“We were told the governor and his family were there,” one source said. “We could see him, and a blonde woman who looked like his wife, and kids, and another couple.”
Who paid for Newsom’s posh getaway?
Newsom’s press secretary told the California Globe that Gavin Newsom personally paid for the family vacation.
According to the source who spoke to the California Globe, Newsom invited locals to the villa for his own private fire show as entertainment. (Click Here)
Newsom’s office lashed out at the California Globe and demanded a retraction.
However, the California Globe obtained additional photos of Newsom in Cabo San Lucas:
On Wednesday morning, as the story began gathering steam on social media, the spokesperson declined to specify further and added, “Katy – I will repeat what I sent last night. I cannot provide the location due to security concerns. They rented a home.”
And then … a second source emerged.
Today, a woman who had read yesterday’s Globe story, presumably including the update in which the governor denied through his spokeswoman that he had stayed at La Datcha, sent us another photo. She was staying on Playa Palmilla, which is near La Datcha. This photo is, according to the source, “on the public beach near the Palmilla with one child and his wife.”
Here is that photo.
Gov Newsom, do you still deny that you and your family were at La Datcha Cabo San Lucas last week? Cuz, dude … that’s you in the photo.
