Kamala Harris was caught fundraising off the California wildfires. The Free Beacon reports:
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) sent an email Thursday encouraging people to donate money for disaster relief caused by the wildfires raging across California, but she did not disclose the included links directed users to the website of Democratic group ActBlue.
ActBlue, a federally registered political action committee, helps Democratic candidates raise money and saves donor emails for future fundraising efforts.
The Northern California wildfire started last week and has erupted into chaos; at least 63 people have died as a result, and over 630 people are currently missing, according to Politico.
Harris, who has been floated as a potential 2020 presidential candidate, sent out an email with a list of nonprofit organizations, which she said are “doing incredible work to help all those displaced and hurt by the California wildfires.” The nonprofits include Wildfire Relief Fund, Humane Society of Ventura County, United Way of Northern California, Northern California Fire Relief Fund, Caring Choices, and California Fire Foundation, among others.
This is not the first time that Harris has acted this way, misleading people to donate so she can pass that information on to Democrats.
