[UPDATE: ELON SAYS TOTALLY UNTRUE, PUTS OUT CHALLENGE] – Sexual harassment hit piece drops against Elon Musk…

Last night an article accusing Elon Musk of sexual harassment dropped almost on cue, just after the billionaire accused Democrats of being the party of hate and division.

Here’s the story:

SpaceX, the aerospace firm founded by Elon Musk, the world’s wealthiest man, paid a flight attendant $250,000 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against Musk in 2018, Insider has learned.

The attendant worked as a member of the cabin crew on a contract basis for SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet. She accused Musk of exposing his erect penis to her, rubbing her leg without consent, and offering to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage, according to interviews and documents obtained by Insider.

The incident, which took place in 2016, is alleged in a declaration signed by a friend of the attendant and prepared in support of her claim. The details in this story are drawn from the declaration as well as other documents, including email correspondence and other records shared with Insider by the friend.

According to the declaration, the attendant confided to the friend that after taking the flight attendant job, she was encouraged to get licensed as a masseuse so that she could give Musk massages. It was during one such massage in a private cabin on Musk’s Gulfstream G650ER, she told the friend, that Musk propositioned her.

Musk did respond to the allegations saying there’s a lot more to the story and suggested the premise wasn’t true:

After Insider contacted Musk for comment, he emailed to ask for more time to respond and said there is “a lot more to this story.”

“If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light,” he wrote, calling the story a “politically motivated hit piece.”

Musk also responded on Twitter to it:

Clearly with his last tweet, he’s not worried about the scandal all that much.

Here’s a couple more…

It’s absolutely all politically motivated. Musk has made an enemy of the Democrat party and now they are going to try to destroy him.

MAJOR UPDATE: I went through Elon’s tweets this morning but Twitter doesn’t always make it easy to find everything. There were a few tweets that I missed in which Elon responded more specifically to these claims of sexual harassment.

In short, Musk claims it never happened and put out a challenge to the ‘far left actress’ claiming it:
