Harris Blasted for Ignoring Sex Abuse Cases After Receiving Political Donations from Clergy Lawyers

The more they learn about Kamala Harris, the less the Democratic voters seem to like her. 

Now that Senator Kamala Harris has joined the Democratic ticket for the 2020 election, there is little doubt that her entire professional record will soon be under a microscope.

Harris was already considered a risky choice of running mate for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, given the former prosecutor’s well-documented history of incarcerating non-violent drug offenders via mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines and aggressive policing tactics.  At a time in which the Democratic base is overwhelmingly in support of defunding police precincts around the nation and decriminalizing marijuana, Harris was undoubtedly a tone-deaf choice.

But there are other skeletons in Kamala’s closet as well.

Peter Schweizer, author of Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite and president of the Government Accountability Institute, discussed with host Alex Marlow of Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily on Thursday that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), while San Francisco’s district attorney (DA), refused to prosecute cases of priests’ sexual abuse.

Harris was the only DA among those from the top 50 metropolitan cities not to lay charges against clergy for sexual abuse, said Schweizer, reflecting on Harris’s tenure as the San Francisco DA between 2004 and 2011.

Here is where it gets hairy:

Schweizer stated, “The numbers are pretty stunning. From 2004 to 2011, Kamala Harris was the San Francisco [district attorney] responsible for all prosecutions and the prosecution team in the San Francisco area. Between 2004 and 2011, she did not prosecute a single case of priests’ sexual abuse–period.”

Schweizer continued, “To put that in the context of how stunning that is, if you look at the top 50 metropolitan areas in the United States at that time, all 50 prosecuted at least one case, the sole exception being Kamala Harris in San Francisco.”

Harris also terminated a plan laid out by her predecessor to release files relating to these cases, much to the dismay of the families affected.

Why she chose that path may be even more incorrigible than her actions.

Harris received political campaign donations from lawyers and law firms representing the Archdiocese of San Francisco.

Schweizer assessed, “Many of the law firms and lawyers who were representing the archdiocese on a variety of legal matters — including priests that had been identified as possible culprits — gave large contributions [to Harris’s political campaign]. Some of them had never given contributions to a race like this before, but they loaded up her campaign coffers.”

The more they learn about Kamala Harris, the less the Democratic voters seem to like her.
