Democrat Kevin Leon, otherwise known as Kevin de León, wants to unseat Dianne Feinstein as one of California’s US Senators. His campaign platform includes unrelenting gun control for the little people. Meanwhile, as he campaigns against guns for you and me, he retains his armed security.
The San Francisco Chronicle spilled the beans on Leon’s hypocrisy:
Kevin de León’s no longer Senate leader, but he still rides like one
Since giving up his leadership post in March, former state Sen. President Kevin de León has been allowed to keep at least one perk — an armed driver and car at his beck and call.
All on the state’s dime. …
(Secretary of the Senate Daniel) Alvarez couldn’t immediately provide us with a breakdown of the costs, but he estimated the state is spending “a couple of hundred thousand dollars” to furnish armed drivers this year to both de León and his successor, Atkins.
As for why de León isn’t paying for the car and security from his U.S. Senate campaign coffers?
“It’s just a judgment you have to make,” Alvarez said.
That’s right, de León wants Californians to send him to Washington so he can take guns and rights away on a national basis. Welcome to the Democratic Party gun control plantation. While he doesn’t care about the little people’s ability to protect their families, you can rest assured he, as an overseer, will have guns and security to protect his.
Not only that, but California’s taxpayers get the privilege of paying for Mr. Leon’s armed guards.
Kevin Leon and former close ally and staunch gun control advocate Senator Leland Yee made for great friends in Sacramento. At least until Yee’s arrest for…gun trafficking.
Yes, de León loves his gun control. Hailing from Los Angeles, de León has supported every gun control measure introduced while in office. Not only that, but he has spoken out aggressively against “ghost guns,” beclowning himself.
Doubt it? Watch!
In short, Kevin Leon wants to take your gun rights away while making you pay for his armed security. He deserves to lose. Big time. And soon.
