Kamala Harris, the Democratic senator from California, is facing trouble for her past associations with the Former Mayor of San Fransisco. This wrecked relationship is creating a big problem for her now. With 2020 presidential elections in just a few weeks, she finds herself in a difficult situation and drops out.
What does Willie Brown claim about his past relationship with Harris?
Willie Brown, the Former San Fransisco Mayer, claimed that he had an affair with Harris in her younger days. She was just an emerging political figure at that time. He even went as far as to say that his powers and influence helped her to move forward in politics. He admitted dating her long time ago by saying “Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago. Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two-state commissions when I was Assembly speaker.” However, this should not affect voters who are outside California yet media is not sparing her. Since the Mayor controversial statement, media keeps making vulgar headlines on Kamla Harris. They are accusing her of using men for her political career and benefits.
How Brown’s controversial statement
Many people questioned her character and how she would set a bad example if elected for president. Because of this controversy, Kamala Harris decided to opt-out from the 2020 presidential elections. Her supporters were hurt by this decision. Some also felt that she should have proved her innocence by not stepping out and taking a stand for herself. Harris was furious on Brown and threatened to finish his career. She framed Brown in a completely different way. According to her, she tried to stay away from him as he has his good shares in corruption. She never pleaded him to raise money for her campaigns or career. “His career is over; I will be alive and kicking for the next 40 years. I do not owe him a thing,” she told this to the San Francisco Chronicle.
