Who said politicians can't be businessmen too? Well, Gavin Newsom's businesses look like they'll be saved as his restaurant group was identified as one that received a six figure federal stimulus loan from the government.

This was revealed on a popular food website called Eater who ran an article on Newsom and provided several key details about his businesses and the money they received.

Per the article, it reveals that the federal government released a list of more than 650,000 businesses in the United States who were able to apply and be provided with a loan under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). This was a loan designed to help keep businesses open, and many Americans might have been under the impression it was strictly for small businesses, or businesses ran by local talent, like mom and pop stores.

That's not it. In fact, it was a program that was open to all businesses who applied successfully and agreed to the terms, which require payback if the money isn't spent appropriately.

"As one might expect, many of the names on the list are prominent restaurateurs, like California Gov. Gavin Newsom, whose Plumpjack group of restaurants, bars, wineries, hotels, and event spaces borrowed as much as $350,000 from the federal government.

Those 650,000 or so names are just a fraction of the recipients of the loan, which is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The data released Monday only covers recipients of loans over $150,000, the U.S. Treasury said in a press release. Recipients of loans less than $150,000 are listed in the agency’s database by demographic information, but all the names and addresses have been redacted." (Eater)

Now that the information is out there and Newsom's businesses benefited from the government program, people wanted to know why and someone straight up asked him

When Newsom was pressed on it, he gave a short-winded answer that the businesses were placed in a blind trust and people should ask the people running the business why they received the loan. Then Newsom seemed mad and said, "FULL STOP."
