It could be the ultimate honey trap.

The trap part though generally requires the person to feel some type of guilt they were trapped.

That is the part that gives the blackmailing person or government the leverage.

In this case though, this permanent A list celebrity in his area of the country was happy to be honey trapped as much as companies or governments wanted.

He has an understanding with his wife, so he wasn’t going to be shamed or blackmailed. What was soon discovered though is this A lister would talk about every single person he came into contact with or asked for his blessing for something.

Every single person who wanted to move up the ladder met with him and in many cases slept with him.

Each of those people he would then talk about and discuss their strengths and weaknesses.

He did this for years, knowing that the person he was saying these things too was relaying the information to those who could use it and there is a lot to use, especially this year.

Oh, and other than the really really really really rich actor, this A lister knows more about the secrets of the former spouse of an A+ lister in the same celebrity status pool.

Our A lister doesn’t play favorites.

Wife: Jennifer Siebel Newsom

Ex-wife: Kimberly Guilfoyle

Donald Trump

Newsom’s aunt was married to Ron Pelosi, the brother-in-law of Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi

How eight elite San Francisco families funded Gavin Newsom’s political ascent

Gavin Newsom wasn’t born rich, but he was born connected — and those alliances have paid handsome dividends throughout his career.

A coterie of San Francisco’s wealthiest families has backed him at every step of his political rise, which in November could lead next to his election as governor of California.

San Francisco society’s “first families” — whose names grace museum galleries, charity ball invitations and hospital wards — settled on Newsom, 50, as their favored candidate two decades ago, said Willie Brown, former state Assembly speaker and former mayor of the city.

“He came from their world, and that’s why they embraced him without hesitancy and over and above everybody else,” said Brown, who is a mentor to Newsom. “They didn’t need to interview him. They knew what he stood for.”

A Times review of campaign finance records identified eight of San Francisco’s best-known families as being among Newsom’s most loyal and long-term contributors. Among those patrons are the Gettys, the Pritzkers and the Fishers, whose families made their respective fortunes in oil, hotels and fashion. They first backed him when he was a restaurateur and winery owner running for a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1998, and have continued their support through the governor’s race.

They are not Newsom’s largest donors: The families in total have given about $2 million of the $61 million that donors have contributed to his campaigns and independent committees backing those bids. But they gave while he was a relative unknown, providing crucial support to a political newcomer in the years before his campaign accounts piled high with cash from labor unions, Hollywood honchos, tech billionaires and donors up and down the state. – Source
