Gov. Gavin Newsum recently came under fire for attending a fine lunch at what has been described as one of California’s most exclusive gourmet restaurants. In the midst of a pandemic that shut down much of the service sector and forced Americans to wear masks and avoid large crowds, the meal cost the governor a significant dose of goodwill among the people of his country.

Earlier, Fox News reported that Governor Newsom was under fire after it was revealed that he had attended a birthday lunch at a restaurant held in honor of lobbyist Jason Keaney, a friend of the governor. Several other high-ranking guests attended, and the event appears to violate the restrictions on coronavirus that Newsom applies to the state.

The governor later apologized, saying he had “made a bad mistake”.
