Billionaire Tim Draper loves the ladies so much that he uploaded a striptease of himself on YouTube, dedicated to all the female companies he's invested in.

California has rebounded from a dreadful fiscal problem, fought off other cranks that want to split the electoral votes up and has a very big John Birch Society following, but now we have another crank on its case. Meet Tim (not Don) Draper, a billionaire who wants to divide California up into six different states, I kid you not. Karoli wrote a piece on him and his plans back in February: Billionaire Tim Draper's Plan For California: Break It!. Read to get caught up, but basically it's a secessionist plot to get richer, stop paying taxes and helping the poors and nothing more.

But what we didn't know then and we know now is that this man is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs

Mother Jones:

Tim Draper is a partner in the VC firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson, which has invested in Hotmail, Skype, SpaceX, and a bunch of other tech companies. Silicon Valley has a well-known women problem. Tim Draper does not have a women problem, though!

He loves ladies in tech! Can't get enough of them! He loves them so much that he uploaded a video to YouTube aptly titled "Tim Draper Shows His Appreciation for Women Entrepreneurs" in which he removes one piece of clothing for every female-led company he has invested in. Because if you're Tim Draper, the way you relate to women is through the language of erotic dance. (Spoiler: He hasn't funded enough female-led companies to get naked.)

Draper is so far removed from reality. I guess when you have as much money as God it does things to your perception, like thinking it's either cute or sexy if he does a strip tease for the ladies online, or dividing California to avoid taxes and poor folks.
