Elon Has More to Say About the Accusation Against Him, Claims He Has the ‘Perfect’ Name for It – Opinion

Elon Musk is experiencing a political transformation, especially since declaring his intention to purchase Twitter. Two days ago, he capped this evolution by announcing that he would not be voting again for Democrats and that he would vote for Republicans for the next election.

“But they have become the party of division & hate,” Musk said. “So I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold…🍿”

We didn’t have to wait long. Business Insider reported that they dropped a sketchy article about an old case of sexual assault against a SpaceX flight attendant. The claim was alleged to have occurred back in 2016 and ended in a $250,000 non-disclosure agreement.  As Bonchie notes, there wasn’t anything that would make this “current” to run as a news story except his heightened public profile with the Twitter buy and the various efforts to run him down because of it. Musk refuted the claims in a statement that he made to Business Insider.

“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,” he wrote, calling the story a “politically motivated hit piece.”

SpaceX’s CEO asked for more time. Business Insider granted him additional time but he didn’t respond to press time. Christopher Cardaci, the company’s vice president of legal, told the outlet, “I’m not going to comment on any settlement agreements.”

He said it wasn’t going to stop him from “fighting for a good future and your right to free speech.”

But he didn’t leave it there. On Thursday night, Musk addressed it even further on Twitter and he challenged the “victim’ to prove the claim.

“For the record, those wild accusations are utterly untrue,” he said.

“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,” the CEO added. “She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened.”

Musk said that he also had the right name to accuse the claim: Elongate.

Doesn’t sound like a guy who thinks that anything is going on with this accusation. He’s not only not acting guilty about it, but he’s also acting aggrieved. It’s six years old and was settled. So what’s the point in bringing it out now? Musk’s ineptness in purchasing Twitter and throwing Democrats under the bus is enough to make it an attack. They are trying to pull out what they can but he’s not caving.
