Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) caused massive fires in California, which resulted in hundreds of deaths. The company “pleaded guilty in June 2020 to felony involuntary manslaughter for killing 84 Californians in the 2018 Camp Fire,” according to ABC 10.
The ABC 10 report notes, “In the months after the crime, Newsom not only signed new financial protections for PG&E into law, his office hired private lawyers in New York who wrote the legislative language.”
