[Ed. – In your face, California.]
The posh Napa Valley restaurant that hosted a dinner party last month that landed California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom in hot water reportedly received millions in COVID-19 relief funds.
KGO News’ investigative unit, the I-Team, reports, “Yountville’s highly acclaimed French Laundry received multiple loans through the Paycheck Protection Program, totaling more than $2.4 million, according to an ABC7 analysis of newly-released data from the Small Business Administration.”
The loans were disbursed by SBA-certified lenders earlier this year to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their employees on the payroll during the pandemic-induced recession.
