Anti-Gun Gavin Newsom Spent Extravagantly On Armed Security

posted on November 24, 2015

California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has been working hard to position himself as the fresh face of gun control—but Breitbart points out that during his tenure as mayor of San Francisco, he was accused of wasting taxpayer money on an expensive armed security detail. Newsom served as mayor from 2004 to 2011, and the mini-scandal developed in mid-2009. It was reported at the time that most major cities spent under half a million dollars on the mayor’s security, while San Francisco spent an unspecified amount of over a million.

It was further revealed that after being elected to the post of lieutenant governor, Newsom spent $30,000 more on security than his predecessor had. This goes to show that he takes the need for firearms very seriously when it comes to his own safety—it’s just the rest of California that he doesn’t care so much about.
