Gavin Newsom expected to take executive action to abolish CA death penalty

Source: NBC 7 San Diego

Governor Gavin Newsom is expected to announce he is taking executive action to try to eliminate the use of the death penalty in California.
Two sources familiar with the governor's plans tell NBC4's I-Team that Newsom may use the governor office's authority to reduce sentences of all condemned inmates on death row.
Newsom has been calling elected officials around the state to share some information, but details are expected to be revealed at a news conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
NBC4 has reached out to a spokesman for the governor, but did not hear back.
Newsom has been openly advocating for a moratorium on the death penalty and told the LA Times this week that he has asked his legal advisers to research his options as governor.

Gavin, as someone who's been aware of you since you were a supervisor, I know you like big bold gestures. I support your stance on the death penalty, as I did your stance on same sex marriage (sent flowers to City Hall along with many others).

However, I always ask myself "Are you doing this because it's for the greater good or because you think it's good for you?"

I can't answer that question. Maybe some other DUers can help me out.
