Kim Kardashian West made a visit to a women’s prison on Saturday and shortly afterwards, she made a plea to Governor Jerry Brown to sign a bill prohibiting male correctional officers from conducting pat down searches on female prisoners.
Before it gets to Gov. Brown, state lawmakers have to vote on it and Speaker of the State Assembly Anthony Rendon made it clear he’s supporting the bill, but definitely not because of Kim.
His press secretary tells TMZ … “Unlike Donald Trump, the California Legislature doesn’t need awkward photo ops with Kim Kardashian to do what’s right.”
It’s an obvious pot shot at POTUS for the pic he took with KKW during her visit to the Oval Office to request a pardon for Alice Marie Johnson.
Rendon’s office added, “The Speaker looks forward to supporting this legislation again and sending it to the Governor.”
