Is Russian President Vladimir Putin Politico‘s new President and CEO?

Such burning questions with the departure of Jim VandeHei.

The answer is probably not. (Though he enjoys state-run media, Vladimir has horses to ride shirtless). But a new government document out of the Office of Business and Economic Government which states that Politico is set to a receive $205k tax credit for opening a bureau in Sacramento raises questions.

According to the document, in 2017 the number of employees in the bureau must be 34 and the minimum salary would be $50K. By 2020 the employee head count rises to 41.

So…California taxpayers may soon subsidize Politico?

Politico Spokesman Brad Dayspring did not return a request for comment.
