Is America seriously paying our worst governors the most money?
· Apr 21, 2021 ·

From Janice Dean, the NY reporter who's been gunning for Gov. Andrew Cuomo for shuttle-busing sick people into senior homes:

According to the attached article, Andrew Cuomo and Cali's Gavin Newsom are the highest-paid governors in the nation.

"New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is the highest paid governor in US history, according to a report by Forbes, with a salary of $225,000. California Gov. Gavin Newsom is the second-top paid current governor, earning nearly $210,000 in 2020."

I sure am glad those two are totally noncontroversial and totally haven't used pandemic approaches that have failed to stop deaths while crushing everyone's lives and liberty!

If you're curious where your governor falls in the lineup and how much bang your getting for your buck during COVID times, you can refer to this handy list of gubernatorial salaries.

According to said list, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis only makes about $130k a year. If it were me, I'd take all of Cuomo and Newsom's salaries and give it to him.
