Kamala Harris slammed for denying knowledge of harassment lawsuit against top aide

[Ed. – Liar, liar]

The Sacramento Bee editorial board slammed Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) over her claim to have no knowledge of a harassment lawsuit against one of her longtime aides, saying her excuse was “far-fetched” and not knowing about it was unacceptable.

“For Harris to flatly deny any knowledge of this settlement seems, shall we say, far-fetched. For the moment, let’s take her at her word,” the Bee board wrote. “A second and equally troubling interpretation is that Harris isn’t a terribly good manager, and that her staff was insulating her from information critical to the performance of her duties. This is hardly a propitious beginning to a presidential candidacy.”

The Bee broke the news this week that Larry Wallace, who has known Harris for 14 years, had been sued by his former executive assistant for gender harassment and retaliation when he served as the director of the Division of Law Enforcement in Harris’ Justice Department. The lawsuit came to light this week and resulted in Wallace’s resignation from Harris’ Sacramento office, where he worked as an adviser.
