KAMALA HARRIS SCREWED HER WAY INTO POLITICS

IT SEEMS THAT HARRIS GOT HER START IN POLITICS BY SCREWING A POWERFUL MAN...NOT BY ANY OF HEER OWN TALENTS...EXCEPT FOR ONE.....



Kamala Harris launched political career with $120K 'patronage' job from boyfriend Willie Brown


Kamala Harris’ first significant political role was an appointment by her powerful then-boyfriend Willie Brown, three decades her senior, to a California medical board that has been criticized as a landing spot for patronage jobs and kickbacks.


Then 30, Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, at the time the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, when he placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994. The position paid over $70,000 per year, $120,700 in current money, and Harris served on the board until 1998.

The medical commission met twice a month, and Harris, a United States senator for California since 2017 and now a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, missed about 20% of the meetings each year, according to commission records obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The seven-member board was largely comprised of late-career former state officials who were semi-retired or biding time before retirement. At 30 years old, Harris was the youngest appointee by some three decades.

Harris, now 54, and Brown, now 85, started dating in the spring of 1994, showing up arm-in-arm at numerous high-profile functions, including Brown’s lavish parties and celebrity galas.

He has been separated but not divorced from his wife Blanche Vitero since the 1980s and has maintained a string of girlfriends over the years.

That June of 1994, Harris took a leave of absence from her job as a deputy prosecutor at the district attorney’s office in Alameda County, where she had worked for four years after graduating from law school. Brown appointed Harris to the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, a position that paid $97,000 annually, which would be $167,000 in 2019. Five months later, Harris resigned from the insurance board, and Brown immediately appointed her to the California Medical Assistance Commission.

Brown, in a letter to Harris, wrote that he was “pleased to appoint” her to the board, which oversaw the payment of insurance providers for state-subsidized MediCal recipients. “I am confident that your knowledge and experience will contribute significantly to the important work of the Commission,” he wrote.

Harris had no medical background, according to a copy of her resume that she submitted to Brown at the time. Her experience consisted of four years as a deputy prosecutor, a handful of summer jobs and internships, and a volunteer position at a hospital fundraising group.

According to state records of the time, members of the committee had to be "selected from persons with experience in management of hospital services, risk management insurance or prepaid health programs, the delivery of health services, the management of county health systems, and a representative of recipients of service.”

Brown’s decision to appoint Harris raised eyebrows in political circles. “Both boards are reserved for political payback or occasionally for personal rewards for personal service,” said Brett Granlund, a former California Republican state assemblyman who worked closely with the commission while Harris was on the board. “The boards are considered plumb appointments as they require no work, no policy credentials, and are paid the equivalent of a full-time [state] senator for arriving at a one- to two-hour meeting each month.”

You are not too bright, are you Dr. Slipt?

When you make a political attack it should hurt your target. If you political attack makes your own side look like assholes without doing any damage to the other side... then what's the point.

These jokes make Conservative White men cream their pants in joy. But, the election will be won with Suburban women and Evangelical Christians (and by Christian I mean the real kind of Christian who would never make these attacks).

I want these type of attacks plastered all over Facebook (and I hope you are doing your part). If Trump is associated with these childish attacks, it alienates the very voters that I want to vote for Biden.

The people in the middle have sincere disagreements with Democrats about Police Reform, and guns, and welfare and medical plans. But these are also decent people who disagree with the Republicans on other things. In 2016 too many of these people chose to vote for Trump largely because Hillary Clinton and her followers were assholes.

So Dr. Slipt... your job is to be a Trump loving asshole. The more Trump loving assholes there are, the easier it will be for people in the middle to decide to vote for Biden this time.

@maxdancona,
Conservative Republicans do not make political attacks.

We just speak the truth.

Interesting Idea that Dr. Slipt has given me.

I am going to be a Conservative Republican for few days Wink. This should be fun. It will be nice being right all of the time for a change.

I have found that real intelligent people don't have the need to brag about their intelligence... in fact I have never seen anyone truly intelligent ever brag about it.

However, I do feel like I should say that I have a very large penis.

@Dr Sliptinschit,
Personally I do not care about the maelstrom of ridiculous charades which is American politics.

No, I have not read this sexist, puerile, schoolboy drivel .... but I know full well if this lady was stood in front of this repulsive inbreed, there would not be a word said by him ... Not one.

This is the problem that social media creates; the pointless, useless, ignorant, uneducated social effluent spewing shyte.

Personally I blame the moderation, the site should simply throw this sort of garbage out. It just breeds more vermin.

How was I to know what Moscow you were talking about?

There are more Moscows in America than in Russia.
