AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom is reportedly vacationing in Montana, despite the state being banned from taxpayer-funded trips, according to CalMatters.
“@GavinNewsom is on vacation in Montana. His office had been loath to disclose the location until now,” CalMatters reporter Emily Hoeven tweeted Tuesday night.
“Montana is one of 22 states to which CA bans state-funded travel due to anti-LGBTQ+ policies. It’s also likely to institute an abortion ban.” SCOOP: @GavinNewsom is on vacation in Montana. His office had been loath to disclose the location until now. Montana is one of 22 states to which CA bans state-funded travel due to anti-LGBTQ+ policies. It’s also likely to institute an abortion ban. More in tmrw’s newsletter — Emily Hoeven (@emily_hoeven) July 6, 2022 This invites the obvious question: Were any taxpayer funds used for this trip, even for basic security for the governor? If Democrats in the state are so bothered by going to these states in an official capacity, then they should not go to them on vacations either. By setting impossible standards, state officials are bound to be set up in situations like this too.
It’s okay for states to disagree on how they approach issues, but it is arguably excessive to flat-out ban state-funded travel to these places. In a country that is suffering from political polarization, California is leading the way in being divisive and hostile toward the rest of the nation.
Newsom has a record of not informing the media where he is traveling. RedState ‘s Managing Editor Jennifer Van Laar was the first to spot Newsom at a Getty family wedding after he’d been out of the public eye for nearly two weeks in 2021.
I wonder if the governor will be airing television ads in Montana soon to match his anger toward Florida.
Don’t wait until food shortages get REALLY bad before stocking up. Get a three-month’s supply now while it’s still available.
