Kamala Harris Used $400,000 Taxpayer Money for Harassment Payoff

Recommended Posts

Yet she claims she was "unaware" of the payment.   How is that possible?

 

Kamala Harris lost a key aide yesterday, but may have more problems retaining her credibility. Larry Wallace worked for Harris during her time as California’s attorney general as well as in her Senate office as a senior advisor. Between those two jobs, his assistant filed a complaint over sexual harassment and retaliation for Wallace’s actions during the transition. The state of California quietly paid $400,000 to settle the lawsuit, but it didn’t stay quiet permanently. The Sacramento Bee reported it yesterday afternoon:

 

Quote

 

Larry Wallace, who served as the director of the Division of Law Enforcement under then-Attorney General Harris, was accused by his former executive assistant in December 2016 of “gender harassment” and other demeaning behavior, including frequently asking her to crawl under his desk to change the paper in his printer.

 

The lawsuit was filed on Dec. 30, 2016, when Harris was still attorney general but preparing to be sworn in as California’s newly elected Democratic senator. It was settled less than five months later, in May 2017, by Xavier Becerra, who was appointed to replace her as attorney general.

 

According to the lawsuit, Hartley eventually informed her supervisor, Shannon Patterson, of the harassment and asked for help. “Hartley observed Patterson enter Wallace’s office and met with him behind closed doors,” the lawsuit states, but after that, she began to experience retaliation.

 

The lawsuit describes that Hartley was “set up to fail,” micro-managed by Patterson, investigated by internal affairs on a “fabricated charge” for which she was never informed of the outcome, and “told she should quit her job and seek employment elsewhere.”

 

A top aide to Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., resigned on Wednesday after a report surfaced of a $400,000 sexual harassment settlement resulting from his time working for Harris at the California Department of Justice in 2016.

 

Harris’ office said in a statement to NBC News that it was unaware of the settlement. …

 

“We were unaware of this issue and take accusations of harassment extremely seriously. This evening (Wednesday), Mr. Wallace offered his resignation to the senator and she accepted it,” Adams said.

The Congress exempts itself from the rules the rest of us have to live by.  This isn't a new thing...

So what?   So do a million other people. 

Why is the state responsible for the ILLEGAL actions of their employees?

Did the state not tell it's people that harassment was illegal and not tolerated?

Did they somehow encourage the harassment?

 

 

Kamala is done.   She can't pretend she didn't know about this, and did nothing about it.

Their plan is much better than Obamacare.  Why would they want that?

Please quote the law you assert here. 

Oh wait... it's you.   Never mind.   You've clearly demonstrated you don't understand the law.

why would any liberal allow this?

 

Kamala   Harris   certainly had a lot of nerve to  try toe dress down Kavanaugh for  what was a nothing, while she tried to silence this very real thing.

 

Shameless in hypocrisy

Shouldn’t the thread title read:  ‘Aide to Kamala Harris...’

You can tack on "(thread title may not accurately reflect anything real)" to any threads started by a lot of these folks.
