Newsom restaurant appearance in TikTok video spurs new questions
A spokesperson said Newsom was present in order to meet with the establishment's owners, who had received a relief grant.
In a TikTok video with celebrity George Lopez, California Gov. Gavin Newsom appeared in a restaurant that is located in an area where indoor dining is not permitted.
But the governor's office insists that Newsom, who is facing a recall, did not dine at the establishment.
Fox News reported that a spokesperson for the governor said that Newsom was present in order to meet with the owners, who had received a relief grant.
Newsom and Lopez were in Los Amigos restaurant in the TikTok video, according to the outlet.
Newsom was forced to apologize last year after dining at a restaurant during one of his lockdowns.
The recall gaining steam against him is based in part on frustration with his handling of the pandemic.
