UPDATE: Newsom Says His Family "Missed" Email Announcing Mask-Optional Basketball Camp Policy

As I was writing the story published earlier this afternoon containing the email sent to parents whose children registered to attend the Buzzardball basketball camp this week in Sacramento, including Gavin & Jennifer Newsom, the Associated Press published a story with an updated statement from the Governor’s spokesperson, Erin Mellon, admitting that they had received “an email” from the camp containing the camp’s “mask optional” policy but had “missed” it.

Mellon said in an email:

“The Newsoms were concerned to see unvaccinated children unmasked indoors at a camp their children began attending yesterday and after seeing this, removed the kids from the camp….The family reviewed communication from the camp and realized that an email was missed saying the camp would not enforce masking guidance. Their kids will no longer be attending this camp.”

The AP article clarifies that both Hunter Newsom and his older sister, Montana, were registered at the camp.

Mellon’s statement came after “Reopen California Schools” tweeted a screenshot of part of the email containing the mask policy and just before RedState published the entire email sent to parents whose children were registered for camp this week, the week of July 26. Perhaps the Newsoms knew it was just a matter of time until the entire email, or the link to it, was published.

As with Mellon’s original statement, the update is also not believable. All parents miss emails about their kid’s school or summer camp from time to time, but we’re to think that a man whose entire existence revolves around masks and vaccines isn’t going to check to ensure that the camp he’s sending his two oldest children off to is enforcing his scientific edict? Yeah, right.
