A former California Democrat party boss, Willie Brown, has admitted to an affair with Kamala Harris in the 1990s, where he appointed her to several lucrative positions. The Washington Examiner reports:
California politician Willie Brown downplayed his past relationship with Kamala Harris, now a Democratic senator for California, as she launched her presidential campaign.
The 84-year-old former Mayor of San Francisco also claimed a role in boosting Harris’ political career in a piece published in the San Francisco Chronicle over the weekend titled, “Sure, I dated Kamala Harris. So what?”
“Yes, we dated,” Brown wrote in the piece. “Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco.”
Brown engaged in an extramarital affair with Harris when she was a 30-year-old prosecutor and he was in his 60s and serving as speaker of the California Assembly.
This will likely draw some criticism from the Left, as well as her time as a prosecutor.
