A coincidence? Sex allegations after Elon Musk changes political course

A strange coincidence: Soon after Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he would vote Republican in future because US Democrats had become the "party of division and hatred", sex allegations against the world's richest man suddenly surfaced.

    According to the US news portal Insider, Musk’s successful company SpaceX allegedly paid a female employee $250 000 in hush money. The alleged reason was that the space and telecommunications company founded by Musk wanted to cover up a case of sexual harassment in 2016.

    The incident allegedly occurred during a flight to London in Elon Musk’s jet. The flight attendant hired a California lawyer in 2018. According to Insider, they reached an agreement after meeting with a mediator. Then, in November 2018, Space X paid the woman $250 000, he said.

    SpaceX President and COO Gwynne Shotwell defended Musk after the sexual misconduct allegations surfaced. “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.”

    Elon Musk had predicted just two days ago that the political attacks on him would increase. After announcing on May 18 that he would vote Republican in the future, he added the telling remark on Twitter: “Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold…”

    Earlier, Musk had announced that his deal to buy Twitter was “temporarily on hold” because of uncertainty over the platform’s fake and spam accounts allegedly only representing less than 5 percent of users. He demanded details supporting the calculation. Twitter may not have been honest about the extent of its bots.

    Almost half of US President Joe Biden’s 22,3 million followers on Twitter are fake accounts, according to Newsweek. The weekly cited analysis by SparkToro which Musk had also used to pause his acquisition of the social media giant.
