Without the world's oldest profession, Senator Kamala Harris might not be where she is in the world's second oldest profession. (Or did I mix the two up?)
The two positions Brown appointed Harris to—on the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and the California Medical Assistance Commission—paid handsomely. SF Weekly reported back in 2003 that the two positions earned her more than $400,000 over five years.
Harris defended her decision to take the posts Brown got for her in her 2003 interview with SF Weekly despite her lack of experience.
"Whether you agree or disagree with the system, I did the work," she said. "I brought a level of life knowledge and common sense to the jobs."
Brown also reportedly gifted Harris with a BMW in 1994. He is 31 years older than Harris.
Kamala might honestly point out that there's not that much of a difference between getting a BMW from San Fran's top boss and a crumpled hundred dollar bill from Bill Clinton in an Arkansas motel room. Only one of those puts you on the path to the White House.
So on her new pro-crime tour, Senator Kamala Harris endorsed legalizing prostitution. Or as the pro-crime left now calls it, "sex work".
Can anything that makes you a California elected official really be considered "work"?
