Interesting article on Gavin Newsom.
I don't remember hearing about this at the time . . .
:::: Last year, when Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was facing potential league discipline following a DUI arrest, Newsom called up NFL commissioner Roger Goodell of whom the lieutenant governor is a "huge fan" and served as a de facto character witness for the 2012 Pro Bowler.
"For him to take the time out to talk to the commissioner about me is something I will never forget," says Lynch, whose case is still unresolved. "For Gavin to be the second-most powerful person in California and [still] talk to a kid from Oakland and help me learn about business, it tells you what kind of character he has." ::::
