Alleged Kamala Harris affair sheds light on cronyism in Calif. government

Alleged Kamala Harris affair sheds light on cronyism in Calif. government

Campaign aides say she has drawn inspiration from Shirley Chisholm, a NY congresswoman who in 1972 became the first black woman to run for president from a major party. She paid a political price for her disruption, receiving nearly no support from law enforcement groups during her attorney general run in 2010.

Tonsil Lasagna wants to make a consensual relationship Harris had twenty years ago the focus of her candidacy from her perch at Roger Ailes' Sexual Harassment Factory (aka Fox News).

By launching her campaign early - a year before any primary votes are cast - the California lawmaker leapfrogs several party luminaries waiting in the wings, and a few already in the race, to become the de facto frontrunner. Sure, Harris is campaigning on a bunch of free stuff, but voters like free stuff if they're not told who pays for it.

On Sunday, she said she has long known the criminal justice system to be "deeply flawed" but that she also knew the "profound impact law enforcement has on people's lives and its responsibility to give them safety and dignity". She did say, "My mother used to have a saying". For Americans with earnings in the top 20 percent, costs are likely to rise by 3.7 percent.

And that same scrutiny and accountability we rightfully demand from Harris should be universally demanded of the rest of the Democratic field.

"No other candidate has even tried to put together a big outdoor rally like that", he said. "That's just the bottom line".

Historically, presidential elections are won by providing the electorate with one of two things: fear or hope. As The Guardian noted, if that number is accurate, it would mean that Harris drew an even bigger crowd at her presidential campaign launch than Barack Obama did when he announced his own run for president in IL in 2017 to an estimated 15,000-strong crowd. It might be the ideal antidote to the current administration's daily dose of fear mongering. "Medicare for All" has 70 percent support among the American people.

Harris rarely mentioned Trump by name, but he was clearly a target. And while Obama had represented the 13th District for three terms in Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004 before winning a landslide victory to represent the state in U.S. Senate, the 46-year-old's presidential campaign was widely dismissed as a "novel feature" of the 2008 race, with many questioning his age and experience. Law professor Lara Bazleoni in a New York Times op-ed last week cited occasions on which Ms Harris backed contentious policies, and some on social media shared photos of her posing with immigration agents, along with the hashtag #NeverKamala. On the same day that she was officially declared a congresswoman-elect, clinching the House seat in Georgia once held by Newt Gingrich, the Democrat found herself responding to the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
