One lousy candidate, having slept her way to the top, though she probably is better than loony Beano O'Rourke.


There is an interesting Yahoo News article out today on Kamala Harris.

It suggests that as the AG in California, she let the company Herbalife off the hook after getting some donations from lobbyists assocatied with the company.

...

About three weeks after the San Diego letter was sent, Harris received the first of three donations to her campaign for the U.S. Senate from Heather Podesta, the powerful Washington lobbyist whose ex-husband Tony’s firm, then called the Podesta Group, had worked for Herbalife since 2013. Heather Podesta’s own lobbying firm, Heather Podesta and Partners, would soon be hired by Herbalife, too.
Harris did not pursue an investigation, even as the Federal Trade Commission proceeded with an investigation of its own, which had been opened the previous March and which suggested that sufficient grounds for such scrutiny did exist. In fact, the San Diego letter had meticulously laid out those grounds, pointing out that Herbalife presented itself to the public as a lawful enterprise, but that it could nevertheless be “engaged in less obvious conduct” that potentially harmed both Herbalife distributors and Herbalife customers. Allegations of such conduct, by 2015, had become commonplace in media reports.
Harris never gave a reason for declining to investigate Herbalife, but the decision stands in contrast to her oft-expressed promise to fight for ordinary Americans for whom the 21st century economy seems to hold little promise. Those are the very same Americans, critics say, that Herbalife recruited — and exploited.​

so she lets a big company off the hook on one hand, and fought to keep innocent people in prison on the other. I can't believe any democrat would support this sociopath.

This is the new democratic party.

The worse you are and the more insane your ideas the more they will support you.

They have completely gone off the edge at this point.
