Kim Kardashian continues to transition from a woman who takes selfies for a living to a woman who takes selfies for a living and uses her power to get people out of prison. Kim’s latest case is a man on San Quentin’s death row named Kevin Cooper, and TMZ says that yesterday, she paid him a visit in person.
Kim has been working on 61-year-old Kevin’s case since October, when she asked California’s then-governor Jerry Brown to look into his situation to see what could be done. Kevin has been on death row since 1983. California’s current governor, Gavin Newsom, has suspended all death penalties while he’s in office (he’s anti-death penalty). So Kevin – who maintains he was framed for the murder of four people in Chino Hills, CA in the 1980s – sits waiting. Kim believes there’s enough evidence to free Kevin. She spent two hours with him yesterday.

It’s not known if Kim did what Kim does and took pictures of herself in the car on the way there, but I’m going to go out on a limb and assume she probably did.
Kim was able to convince Jerry Brown to order DNA testing for Kevin back in October. Kevin is still waiting for the final results of his DNA test. TMZ claims that after her visit, Kim is more convinced than ever that Kevin was framed and sits in prison as an innocent man.
If DNA shows that Kevin was wrongfully accused, then there’s a chance Kim might also lend a helping hand once he’s freed. Kim recently offered to pay five years worth of rent for recently released prisoner Matthew Charles, a non-violent drug offender who was locked up for 21 years of a 35 year sentence.
It’s about time one of Kris Jenner’s kids used their money and influence for something other than pushing crappy products. But just because Kim has been reading doesn’t mean she’s not still Kim. I bet there was a moment before she went to San Quentin where she was deeply confused.
Kim’s Assistant: Kim, Kevin is currently incarcerated in San Quentin. You know, the place where Johnny Cash recorded that album?
Kim: Cash? I like money. Can I have the money?
Kim’s Assistant: No Kim, Cash is his last name.
Kim: I don’t care what his name is, Kimmy wants money. Do I get it before or after I leave? I’d like $100 bills please.
