Former Politician Admits Affair With Kamala Harris, Boosting Her Career

Kamala Harris Nabs Her First Congressional Endorsement In 2020 Race

Harris has faced recent controversy over the revelation that she was unaware that one of her top aides, when she was Attorney General of California, settled a workplace harassment lawsuit. The California senator is the daughter of two immigrants who were active in the civil rights movement. If she ultimately wins the White House she would be the first African-American woman and first person of Asian descent to be president. Since her announcement, Harris has been criticized for her background as a prosecutor for the District Attorney of San Francisco, and Attorney General of California. "After her election, some have scrutinized Brown's level of involvement in her election".

She added: "I have also worked my whole career to reform the criminal justice system, understanding, to your point, that it is deeply flawed".

During her speech, Ms. Harris appeared to take on power in various forms - she referred to "the arrogance of power" of big banks and said that big pharmaceutical companies had unleashed the opioid crisis. The state of California has played a leading role in resistance to the presidency of Donald Trump. "And folks, on the subject of transnational gangs, let's be perfectly clear: the President's medieval vanity project is not going to stop them".

Questions about his relationship with Harris were reignited after she announced her 2020 presidential bid on Martin Luther King Day.

"We must answer a fundamental question: Who are we?" she said. This is something Harris seemed to use to her advantage. In the weeks before last November's elections, she traveled to the leadoff caucus state to campaign on behalf of Democrats, and also visited other early-voting states. "America, we are better than this".

Senator Kamala Harris holds her niece Amara while standing with her husband Douglas Emhoff and her family as she holds a rally to launch her 2020 presidential campaign in her hometown of Oakland, California, U.S., January 27, 2019.

Harris' campaign is filled with historic possibility.

She continued to lay out what she called "truths" in what actually signaled her strongest policy stances: debt-free college, Medicare for all, climate change action, tackling discrimination, and treating the opioid crisis as "a national public health emergency".

Another former Obama adviser, Anita Dunn, told the LA Times: "She really took a large step toward demonstrating - not telling people, but demonstrating to people - she's a candidate who can go the distance".

"We are here because the American Dream and our American democracy are under attack and on the line like never before", Harris said Sunday.

"I'm running for president because I love my country", declared the 54-year-old, whose father is Jamaican and mother is Indian.
