Word came out this week that California Gov. Newsom has already selected a replacement for the late Dianne Feinstein. Newsom announced progressive activist Laphonza Butler to fill the vacant Senate seat.
Little is known about Butler, beyond her pro-abortion activism. It appears this woman is being put on the highest legislative body in the country, with zero legislative experience.
Users have raised numerous questions about her qualifications for serving on the Senate. One particular detail might have excluded her from representing the state at all. Now, users are pointing out how she might have tried to hide this fact from the public.
From Fox News:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s pick to replace the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein in the Senate has been quick to scrub online evidence that she actually lives in Maryland.
Screenshots of Laphonza Butler’s account on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, show that she still listed her location as “Maryland” on Sunday when news of her selection was first reported. Her account has since been updated and currently does not list any location.
Critics quickly raised concerns that Newsom’s selection to fill a Senate seat for California actually lives in Maryland. Butler’s bio on social media claimed she lived in Maryland. Her pro-abortion group’s website listed her as living in Maryland as well.
But minutes after Newsom made the announcement, and critics started asking questions, it appears Butler or a staffer started “scrubbing” this information from the Internet.
Some will find it odd that Butler is apparently trying to hide the fact that she lived in Maryland. Does she currently reside in Maryland or California? Critics pointed out that she was still registered to vote in Maryland, meaning she must still be a resident.
Why would the governor select a non-Californian to represent the state? Was this decision made the Newsom himself? Or is this evidence that he was picking someone approved by lobbyists or Democrat party officials in Washington?
Many lobbyists and representatives of special interest groups live in Maryland, outside of Washington. Could Butler have been selected simply because she is a pro-abortion activist, who is known for lobbying in D.C. for her organization?
Newsom claimed Butler was a “trusted adviser to Vice President Harris.” This seems to confirm concerns that she does not, in fact, live in California–nor should she represent the state. The fact that she is apparently an adviser to Kamala will upset many more Americans.
- Newsom’s Senate replacement may not be from the state of California.
- Butler has been accused of erasing content that revealed she lives in Maryland.
- Critics have slammed Butler, who is a pro-abortion activist and Kamala Harris adviser.
