BREAKING NEWS – San Francisco, California – New photos of a birthday party attended by California Gov. Gavin Newsom and his wife at an upscale restaurant in the wine country earlier this month appeared to show an unmasked group eating shoulder-to-shoulder indoors, according to a report.

Newsom apologized over the party after he received backlash over it, saying he made a “bad mistake.”

“I should have stood up and… drove back to my house…The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradicted,” he said. “But, should all the rules apply to me? I don’t think so. I have excellent medical coverage, and I can be isolated in a private hospital room and recover in comfort while not infecting anyone else, unlike the growing homeless population in this foul smelling city and state. So I should be able to party in close quarters when I get the urge, because I am not on the same level as bums, hobos, and those wretched bag ladies.”
