Senator Kamala Harris is the most oppressed politician in California.
Honestly, if it weren't for busing, she would have never slept her way up the political ladder and ended up marrying a white Jewish lawyer and living in his luxurious Brentwood home.
Smashing into the top spot is Senator Kamala Harris, who lives in a four-bedroom, 3,505-square-foot spread in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. An aerial view of the posh neighborhood reveals a pool in nearly every yard and even an outdoor basketball court at her neighbor's house. Senator Harris lives with her husband – intellectual property lawyer, Doug Emhoff – who in addition to a trust bearing both their initials, is the official owner of the house. The couple reported $1.9 million in joint earnings last year.
The couple lives in a 3,500-square foot, Brentwood contemporary with three large bedroom suites, a spa-like master bathroom and a kidney-shaped pool in the backyard. Emhoff purchased the home though a family trust for $2.7 million in 2012, before the two were married.
Stock holdings in Emhoff’s individual retirement account, which “were funded prior to marriage,” were sold shortly after Harris announced her Senate bid, according to financial disclosures. Those stocks included investments in companies such as Citicorp, Wells Fargo, Valero Energy, Walt Disney Co. and Monsanto.
Altogether, the couple had between $1.5 million and $4 million in assets in 2015, not including the two homes, and $200,000 to $500,000 in liabilities, according to the Senate disclosure.
And that little girl in the kidney shaped pool in one of the most segregated neighborhoods in Los Angeles... was me.
Put that on a t-shirt.
