San Francisco billionaire publishing heir William Randolph Hearst III – a director of Hearst Corp., the San Francisco Chronicle’s parent company – gave $13,000 last week to Jerry Brown’s not-quite-gubernatorial campaign. Databases show Hearst’s past contributions include $10,600 to Brown’s campaign for Attorney General in 2004; $10,000 to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 2006 re-election campaign; $21,200 to Schwarzenegger’s 2003 gubernatorial campaign plus another $10,000 that year to the effort to recall Gov. Gray Davis; and $500 to Gavin Newsom’s San Francisco mayoral campaign in 2003.

    He is a lesser descendant of the great William R. H. the First. He couldn’t carry the Chief’s jockstrap.
