Gavin Newsom is facing a recall election that could mean the end of his job as governor of California.
What is an embattled Democrat to do?
Newsom has a plan. He is about to start doling out more stimulus cash.
FOX Business reports:
Newsom to give Californians a new round of stimulus checks
California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday announced a $100 billion “California Comeback plan” to help poor and middle-class families recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but his critics maintain that the proposal is merely an effort to fend off a recall campaign.
Per Newsom’s stimulus deal, two out of every three Californians will benefit from a new round of stimulus checks. Millions of poor and middle-class Californians would get tax rebates of up to $1,100.
All households making up to $75,000 with at least one child, including immigrants in the country illegally who file taxes, would get an extra $500 payment. Individuals and households making between $30,000 and $75,000 a year would get a $600 payment.
“Direct stimulus checks going into people’s pockets — that direct relief, that’s meaningful,” Newsom said during an event in Oakland to announce the plan.

The massive budget surplus is largely due to taxes paid by rich Californians and marks a major turnaround after officials last year said they feared a deficit of more than $50 billion.
This looks a little bit like bribery, doesn’t it?
If there was any doubt Gavin Newsom was bribing recall voters with stimulus checks, he made it clear for you by touting it in a campaign email. https://t.co/suuRWYisLS

It's pretty funny how @GavinNewsom suddenly wants to start printing checks just as he's facing a recall!
Sorry, governor, you're not going to be able to bribe yourself out of this one.https://t.co/LKwan8fB00

Newsom shouldn’t be allowed to buy his way out of a recall election.
