Gavin Newsom's California "Loses" Over 24 BILLION Dollars for the Homeless

Over the last five years, California used $24 billion to address homelessness. A state audit revealed that there wasn't consistent tracking to see if all that money actually helped improve the situation. The problem has only gotten worse. 

Since 2019, homelessness in the state rose by almost 20% to more than 181,000 and continues to grow. California also has the nation's highest share of "unsheltered" homeless, or people living in makeshift encampments or cars rather than indoor shelters. A critic noted that authorities know where the money was went, but they don't want the public to know.
