Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 02, 2019

One of the latest examples is none other than California Gov. Gavin Newsom. His $3.7 million home in Fair Oaks has the single largest price tag for houses sold so far in 2019 in the Sacramento region, according to Ryan Lundquist of the Sacramento Appraisal Blog. The region includes homes sold in Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and El Dorado Counties. The Newsoms left Marin County to move to Sacramento when the governor took office. They put their former home on the market in February, seeking $5.9 million, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The governor, his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and their four young children now live in a 12,000-square-foot, six-bedroom house in Fair Oaks. Newsom opted for the private residence over living in the downtown Sacramento governor's mansion.

They didn't in SF and Marin and I doubt that they will in Fair Oaks either.

He went to Redwood HS and the University of Santa Clara, which are pretty mainstream but his second wife was elite private schools all the way.

At some point, the square footage of a house becomes a pain in the ass rather than a luxury, 12,000 square ft seems a bit uncomfortable unless you have a ton of kids or host events regularly.

It's like how owning a boat beyond 42 or 48 ft, you usually need to start looking into having a crew.

This guy cant be a democrat, because I was told Democrats arent rich people. That when or if they do get rich, they would give all their money away to the poor and live like the common man.

A democrat wouldnt be hypocritical like this, would they?

Maybe Gavin Moonbeam's task force on homeless will fix this problem.

" Woke Los Angeles is the New Typhus Hotbed: Homeless Catastrophe Makes City of Angels Unlivable."

" When state officials inspected the Los Angeles Police Department's Central Division station last November, they uncovered rodent infestations and other unsanitary conditions at the facilities responsible for protecting skid row and other parts of downtown.

The conditions have now become the source of growing anger inside the station, with some officers threatening to seek transfers and city leaders scrambling to address the problems.

The issues at the Central Division come amid larger concerns about disease and filth across downtown, notably a vermin infestation at City Hall last year. One city employee was diagnosed with typhus, a disease that can be spread by rodents. City Hall workers said they saw fleas, rodent droppings and plants eaten by vermin in the building.

~MrSilenceDoesNoGood

Who is mad?

I am entertained, the hypocrisy is right in front of your face, but you can't see it, as Nulli points out ...

California elects the incredibly rich, who are going to solve homelessness by paying a task force an enormous amount of money to produce a report, no one will listen too or implement.

But it makes dolts such as yourself feel good.... thats all the matters right? that you feel good ....

LA is spending hundreds of millions of dollars providing homes and apartments to the homeless from the proceeds of a local tax that I voted for. There is no reason why the State can't do the same instead of commissioning a multi-million dollar study on homelessness.

But your particular brand of Stupid is pretty amusing to behold.

I have no problem with temporary transitional housing. I support housing for the disabled and elderly.

I'll never support able-bodied work-age persons to be given homes to squat in a free apt. or tiny house.

Get a job.

The government provided them with housing. It wouldn't make sense for the government to buy someone a house, given that they would have to pay the utilities, property tax, etc.

I vote for folks not actively trying to screw over the country. Those happen to be democrats these days, comparatively.

You vote FOR folks you complain about daily. If you can't see a fundamental difference, the problem is in your mirror, not in my voting booth.

I live in Salt Lake where they're building 3 new homeless shelters. They're not making "home owners", they're providing transitional housing coupled with mental health, addiction, and job services; which is thr right direction.

That makes a lot more sense than buying someone a home. You wouldn't be doing them much of a favor by giving them a present that was going to cost them thousands of dollars a month.

It's not the purchase of the house. It's decrying wealth inequality and demanding change, even while you are the city's largest contributor to the phenomenon.
