Hardly Any media coverage about Kevin Paffrath
This is a KPIX CBS SF Bay Area coverage on the recall race on June 10th, 2021. Caitlyn Jenner has slim support and is still mentioned as a candidate for the recall election. Kevin isn’t even mentioned by the news.
Gavin Newsom is backed by Big Companies
Facebook, Google and Blue Shield of California are among the companies that contributed $226 million to Gavin Newsom’s behalf last year, an unprecedented level of spending that is raising alarms about the influence large corporations are amassing in Sacramento. If giant companies that control social media is standing behind Gavin Newsom, donations from the mass isn’t going to help. Look at Bernie Sanders.
Kevin Paffrath Only Cares About His Own Wealth
If you look through his channel, he’s constantly talking about his investments. AMC stock squeeze, cryptos, Tesla, etc. Is this the kind of person you want running our government? When it comes time to choose between his wealth and helping people in need, which would he choose?
So why is Kevin doing this?
Worst case, if Gavin or media could cover him as anything, he will get more viewers on his channel.
Best case, he becomes governor of one of the wealthiest states, California.
