Gavin Newsom, a Russian billionaire and a Louis Vuitton pen

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

A Russian billionaire with a checkered past that includes having been a murder suspect gave imageLt. Gov. Gavin Newsom a $398 Louis Vuitton pen as a gift last November and that got Kyle Finck at California Watch to wondering: Why? Especially considering that Dmitry Rybolovlev, 44, the world’s 79th richest man, has no known ties to California and the Sansome Street address that the lieutenant governor’s people listed for Rybolovlev in disclosing the gift turns out to be a travel agency where apparently nobody knows anything about the guy.

Add: It makes for a curious yarn, even if only to illustrate that if you’re a politician, all kinds of people tend to give you stuff.
