Female SpaceX President: Sexual Misconduct Allegations against Elon Musk Are 'False'
COO Gwynne Shotwell defends CEO, says claims are not true
The female president of Elon Musk's aerospace company SpaceX has spoken out to reveal that the allegations of sexual misconduct against her CEO are "false."
SpaceX President and COO Gwynne Shotwell issued a statement to assure employees that the claims against Musk are not true, revealing that no such allegations have been made at the company.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, Musk was hit with allegations that he "exposed" himself to a former SpaceX employee roughly 24 hours after he announced he was turning away from Democrats to "vote Republican."
The murky claims emerged in a report from left-wing outlet Business Insider and feature unnamed sources and zero evidence.
In a tweet following the story, Musk warned the story should be "viewed through a political lens."
"In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party," Musk explained last Wednesday, a few hours before the hit piece was published.
"But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican," Musk tweeted.
"Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold," he warned.
The suspicious timing of the allegations has led many to assume it is nothing more than a political hit piece being peddled by the Left.
According to a company-wide email obtained by CNBC, Shotwell does not buy into the allegations either.
“Personally, I believe the allegations to be false; not because I work for Elon, but because I have worked closely with him for 20 years and never seen nor heard anything resembling these allegations,” Shotwell wrote.
The misconduct allegations came shortly after Musk warned on Twitter that “political attacks on me will escalate dramatically in coming months” in response to him buying Twitter.
“Watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold,” Musk added.
Musk also recently doubled down on his intentions to begin voting for Republicans in the next election cycle.
“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically,” Musk said at a technology summit in Florida.
“Like I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear.
"Now this election I will.”
Weeks earlier, Musk posted a meme outlining his ideological shift toward the Right. The meme’s 2012 timeline shows a “fellow liberal” on the Left running toward the extreme far-Left, in effect leaving another stick-figure drawing labeled “me” moved toward the center.
By the 2021 timeline, a “woke ‘progressive’” is now all the way on the far-Left, calling the stick-figure labeled “me,” or Musk, in this case, a “bigot.”
Musk has stayed in the same spot in the meme but is now considered to be on the Right.
In response to Musk’s ideological change of heart, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez invited the multibillionaire to move Twitter’s headquarters to his city.
"So the pitch is you want to move to the city with the lowest taxes, lowest crime rate, best quality of life that embraces success,” Suarez said during an interview with Fox News.
"We believe that the American dream is one where people can do whatever it is that they want to do and be successful.
"That’s not something you should be ashamed of, it’s not something you should, you know, you should run from or hide from.
"And so I think that’s one of the things that’s made Miami so unique.”
Musk’s $44 billion deal with Twitter caused celebration among advocates for freedom of speech.
Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, said he wanted to take Twitter — where he has over 90 million followers — private so he could ensure it operates as a free speech forum for all.
