Perhaps the only cool thing we will ever see from the Democrat party is the fact that their scandals play out like the best soap operas you will ever see on tv. And the 2020 presidential race is already showing signs it will not disappoint.
Late last week the former Mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown addressed his past extramarital relationship with now Senator Kamala Harris from the looney state of California in his weekly column, saying he may have boosted the presidential hopeful’s career.
Here is more via Fox News:
“Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago,” Brown wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle.
“Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was [California] Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco.”
Brown, 84, pointed out that he also helped the careers of other prominent California Democrats, such as U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
“The difference is that Harris is the only one who, after I helped her, sent word that I would be indicted if I ‘so much as jaywalked’ while she was D.A.,” Brown wrote. “That’s politics for ya.”
Brown appointed Harris — about 30 years younger than Brown and just a few years out of law school – to two well-paid state commission assignments on the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and the California Medical Assistance Commission, the Washington Free Beacon reported.”
“Whether you agree or disagree with the system, I did the work,” Harris said in a 2003 interview with SF Weekly. “I brought a level of life knowledge and common sense to the jobs
The former mayor also connected Harris with campaign donors, which helped her outraise her opponent for San Francisco district attorney, Business Insider reported. Brown’s involvement in her election raised questions as to how Harris would remain impartial, given his enormous political clout.”
Wow, She must have been one hell of a mistress.
This is no surprise to most in the San Francisco area since Willie Brown was notorious for attending parties with his wife on one arm and his girlfriend on the other as was reported in 1984 by Playgirl magazine. But do we as a nation really want one of his “Twinkies” as Commander in Chief?
