Newsom busy extracting ‘behested payments’ from private companies

In other states, when a public official asks for a big check from an individual or business that would have good reason to be afraid to say no, it’s called extortion.

The money may be “behested” for a “charitable” purpose, which can include donations to non-profit organizations closely tied to the official or to a family memb...
