PG&E, with multiple felonies to its name, has given Gavin Newsom more money than any politician. They even pay his wife’s salary.
Now, a whistleblower has come forward at the PUC. Former Executive Director Alice Stebbins says Newsom took “complete control” over the agency’s oversight of PG&E and she was ordered to sign a safety certificate against her will.
“I did not want to sign this. The bottom line is I was told to sign it. You will sign this. Period,” she said. “I trusted my Governor…And that was a mistake.”
Yesterday, I held a press conference to announce my plans for an investigation. The Newsom-PG&E racket puts everything in a nutshell: Corruption is ruining California.
Meanwhile, Newsom is using our teachers and nurses as political pawns, imposing new mandates that no other state has. As I said at the debate, to make the case Newsom got COVID right you’d have to make the case all 49 other states got it wrong. That’s an impossible case to make.
Which is why I’m hopeful that as voters face the most important question in state history – “Shall Gavin Newsom be recalled (removed) from the office of Governor?” – a resounding majority will make the right choice.
