Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Cal., used more than $28,000 of taxpayer dollars to fund airline tickets, hotel stays, car rentals, and meals when she attended parties and public events outside of her California district. Expense reports just released show Harris also used taxpayer funds for Los Angeles Police Department officials to follow her at least a dozen times in the past year when she traveled across the state and outside of the city.
Sadly, many would agree this is how greedy Democrats think…. the commoners have to pay for all their expenses so they can campaign on the wealth ‘equality.’
According to NBC Los Angeles, who reportedly reviewed the documents, Harris has apparently been using taxpayer funds from her district as her own personal piggy bank. The mayor claims he was “unaware” of what Harris has been doing since early last year.
Her despicable actions came to light after LAPD Chief Michel Moore was sworn-in over the summer, and shut down Harris’ operation of using LAPD officers when she wasn’t even in the city.
The LAPD typically provides security for officials visiting Los Angeles, but Harris has apparently been using the program when she visits other cities.
Former LAPD officers told NBC LA that such a move is unprecedented and never happened, to their knowledge, before Harris.
Between January 2017, and July 2018, documents prove LAPD officers flew to San Francisco at least seven times. Of those trips, which were fully funded by taxpayers, Harris made media appearances, spoke at a YMCA event, and took part in the San Francisco Pride gay pride parade. She also used LAPD officers as her personal body guards.
It’s highly unlikely that taxpayers are content with knowing their hard-earned money was spent on ensuring Harris, who many believe is eying a 2020 presidential run, could use LAPD agents out of town while she attended glamorous events and spewed liberal talking points on cable news.
Soon after, the program was shut down and Harris was no longer allowed to use LAPD officers to travel as her personal retinue when she was not in Los Angeles. More importantly, this is hardly the first scandal that has plagued the likely 2020 presidential hopeful in recent months.
In July, Harris came under fire for appearing to lie about Berkeley, California schools being racially segregated when she attended them decades ago. The information was refuted by ‘fact-checking’ sites.
Prior to that, Harris got annihilated on social media after she falsely claimed the Declaration of Independence was signed by “eight immigrants.”
Harris is not only considered by many to be a front-runner for the Democratic Party in 2020, she also has a long history of making controversial comments and threats.
And now, new documents show that she has been using taxpayer funds as if they are her own personal piggy bank.
