Gavin Newsom buying recall votes? Offers $600 checks in “recall rebate”


Facing a recall election in his home state, California Governor Gavin Newsom has announced he will be sending out $600 checks to citizens ahead of the recall election and now is being accused of buying votes. Republicans are calling the last-minute offer a “recall rebate”.

Hailed as the “biggest economic recovery package in California’s history”, the measure will send nearly $12 billion in direct cash payments to Californians hit hardest by the pandemic.

 Under the plan, two-thirds of Californians will benefit from $600 direct payments. Qualified families with dependents, including undocumented families, will also now be eligible for an additional $500. The plan triples California’s previous investment, reaching more people and giving bigger benefits.
