Skip to comments.Kamala Harris launched political career with $120K 'patronage' job from boyfriend Willie Brown

Then 30, Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, at the time the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, when he placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994. The position paid over $70,000 per year, $120,700 in current money, and Harris served on the board until 199
Browns decision to appoint Harris raised eyebrows in political circles. Both boards are reserved for political payback or occasionally for personal rewards for personal service, said Brett Granlund, a former California Republican state assemblyman who worked closely with the commission while Harris was on the board. The boards are considered plumb appointments as they require no work, no policy credentials, and are paid the equivalent of a full-time [state] senator for arriving at a one- to two-hour meeting each month.
The breakup reportedly happened shortly after Brown met 32-year-old San Francisco socialite Carolyn Carpeneti, a woman with whom he would later have a daughter. While the two were dating, Carpeneti was paid $2.33 million for campaign work from a network of nonprofit groups and committees run by Brown and his associates, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Isnt that how socialism/communism always works?
We are all fools..We should have a tax revolt
WUT?! Is this breaking just now on all the ‘majors’(in their own little way)? LOL! Did she also get a lifetime supply of knee pads? Hard to be sure by I still think moose-shell has her beat as the head ABW.
He's one of those Democrats that you can't help but to have some grudging respect for.
So she’s a corrupt slut that screwed her way into prominence. Sounds like a perfect Democrat presidential candidate.
at best she’ll be someone’s VP, but still a loser
The demonrats deserve this.
most people’s employment requires sitting or standing. There are a few of the elite who find it pays much better when working in a prone position.
Yup, typical progressive “independent” female. Gotta boink to get political position.
You listening, Pelosi?
Funny how the conservative women seem to do it the hard way (the other ‘hard way’, that is). They use talent.
Where have we seen this pattern before??
Hmmm,. Oh Yeah... ..the Obama’s!
Bravo. I live in a city not far from Detroit and hear the constant pay for play details if I'm careless enough to have a radio or TV news update on before I turn them off. So much total corruption and the corporations and state tax authorities waste our money on glorifying their s-hole city.
I proudly totally boycott Detroit and have for decades.
Kamala and Willie are just like the Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick adulterous couple who denied it all and then were caught. He quickly hid his tens of millions of dollars and had the nerve to demand he was owed legal representation costs by the taxpayers as an "indigent." Got the millions for that, too. Hopefully has a place waiting in Hell.
She’ll screw you good now, but really f.. You good if she becomes president.
KAMALA HARRIS IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT OR ANY POSITION THAT CAN SUCCEED PRESIDENT.
NEITHER OF HER PARENTS WERE USA CITIZENS WHEN SHE WAS BORN.
SHE IS NOW BRAGGING THAT SHE IS THE OFFSPRING OF IMMIGRANTS, BUT SHE IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT HER ELIGIBILITY OR THAT THEY WERE NOT CITIZENS AT THE TIME OF HER BIRTH.
SINCE SHE IS CAMPAIGNING FOR A JOB SHE CANNOT HAVE, I CONTEND SHE IS COMMITTING ELECTION FRAUD EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Are you saying that Kamala Harris didn't use her "talents" to move up in the political world? Willie Brown made Richard Daley look like a piker when it comes to political "favors". As others have said here, he freely admits what he did, unlike most political hacks.
Politics is disgusting. There is no perfect government but America has done a great job taking a big sh*t on what the Founders gave us.
Agreed. Her birth status is no different than that of the Chinese birth tourism babies born here.
until 199 what? dalliances? coke hits? knee pads?
