San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's 2010 gubernatorial campaign announced Friday it will return a $25,000 contribution from a businessman who also is the son of Bay Area-based conservative radio talk personality Michael Savage.
"The Newsom for California campaign is returning the contribution of Russell G. Weiner," campaign director Eric Jaye said in an e-mailed statement. "We believe that the confusion caused by the conflicts between the views expressed by Mr. Weiner in his campaign for State Assembly and the views and values of Mayor Newsom are best addressed this way."
Rockstar energy drink founder and CEO Russell Weiner son of Michael Weiner, a.k.a. Michael Savage in 1998 sought the 6th State Assembly District seat as a Republican, touting among his bona fides the fact that he and his father had cofounded the conservative Paul Revere Society to protest illegal immigration. The Internal Revenue Service revoked the society's tax-exempt status in 2006, and the society's former Web site now redirects users to Savage's site.

What is wrong with this picture?
savage’s son runs Rockstar energy drink?
Savages son is a liberal?
Sure sounds like Savage’s son is liberal. Don’t know enough about him. He should know with his father what would happen contributing to a liberal’s campaign. I was surpried by it myself.
Why does the Savage clan get mixed up with these lowlife politicians?
Maybe he will learn that ya can’t be friends with liberals in the political arena. (that goes for Doc and his friendship with moonbeam Brown. I shake my head at that.)
You talking about Bush 2 who Savage voted for twice and then McCain who Savage voted for last election? Guess he could've voted for Gore, Kerry, and the Magic Negro instead.
Not sure what the deal is with his son, he once ran on the Republican ticket and sounded pretty Savage-like on the radio right after the 911 attacks, otoh many CEO's of businesses donate to candidates on both sides of the aisle, in California however it might be just good business to donate to the next Governor of the state you're doing business in, not only that he supposedly is personal friends with Newsom, he's an adult and obviously can now do whatever he wants with his money, Savage rarely says anything on the radio about his wife and siblings.
“Newsom rebuffs Weener, Film at 11.”
Who is Doc?
Why the hell did he give money to Newsom? Typical biznessman playing both sides?
Savage contributed to Jerry Brown? OMG, Becky!
I don’t listen to Michael Weener.
Doc Savage (and punning on the old pulp fiction character, also)
“Savage then earned two master’s degrees in ethnobotany and anthropology from the University of Hawaii. He obtained a Ph.D. in 1978 from the University of California, Berkeley, in nutritional ethnomedicine. His thesis was titled Nutritional Ethnomedicine in Fiji”
I’ve heard him only a handful of time, he’s a crank, very amusing.
Michael Savage hit the nail right on the head most of the time.
