Yet another high-profile celebrity has waded into politics.
This time, Kim Kardashian (what’s she famous for again?) has come out swinging in favor of the California governor’s move to get rid of the death penalty.
I have met with and am very supportive of Governor Newsom and his decision to help bring an end to the California Death Penalty. Racial bias and unfairness run deep throughout the justice system but especially when it comes to the death penalty.

Daily Caller has more:
Kardashian has successfully used her platform to raise concerns about criminal justice issues in the past. She advocated for Alice Marie Johnson, an African-American woman serving life without parole for a non-violent drug offense. She even went to visit President Donald Trump on her behalf.
In addition, she supported the First Step Act, legislation passed in December that reforms the federal prison system and aims to reduce sentences for non-violent drug offenses.
Earlier this month, Kardashian continued to raise awareness of criminal justice issues after Matthew Charles, convicted of a non-violent drug offense, was denied housing. Kardashian agreed to pay five months of Charles’ rent.
