California Medical Association officials attended French Laundry dinner party with Gavin Newsom

This party might not have violated Napa regulations as they stood at the time, but the county has since been placed on the most restrictive "purple" tier for reopening.

Already taking criticism for attending a party at the exclusive French Laundry in Yountville with as many as a dozen other people, Newsom stepped in it even further when photos contradicted the Governor's claim that it had been an "outdoor" event.

Newsom acknowledged he attended a birthday party with a dozen friends on November 6 at the posh French Laundry restaurant in wine country north of San Francisco. "And I did ask one of the waitresses and she confirmed it was, so I was able to take a couple of photos, I was able to document this especially since nobody was wearing a mask".

Newsom and state and local health officials have urged people to stay within their own households.

The state has issued guidelines prohibiting more than three households from gathering privately - a limit clearly exceeded by the French Laundry dinner.

The dinner, first reported Friday by the San Francisco Chronicle, included 12 people at the famed restaurant in Napa County.

"Dustin Corcoran and Janus Norman attended a private 50th birthday dinner for their friend Jason Kinney earlier this month". The photos call into question just how outdoors the dinner was. Newsom told FOX 11 the party was actually in a closed-off room, and that the sliding-glass doors had to be closed in order to keep their noise from bothering the other guests.

Days after admitting he "should have modeled better behavior" following a dinner that broke California's Covid-19 restrictions, Gavin Newsom is back in the spotlight as it's revealed health officials were also in attendance.

Mr. Newsom apologized Monday for what he said was "a bad mistake", saying he realized as soon as he sat down at the table that the group was larger than he had expected and that he should have immediately left but chose not to.

"Instead of sitting down, I should have stood up and walked back, gotten in my auto and drove back to my house", he said. "The spirit of what I'm preaching all the time was contradictory, and I've got to own that, so I'm going to apologize to you".
