"Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago," Brown wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle.

"Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was [California] Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco."

"Whether you agree or disagree with the system, I did the work," Harris said in a 2003 interview with SF Weekly. "I brought a level of life knowledge and common sense to the jobs."

But what kind of work gets you the position?

This has been known for years. My guess is the Wokamala camp wanted to get it out now rather than wait for one of her opponents to start talking about it.

She's a cop and should be running as a republican.

Slick Willie Brown says he "dated" Kamala Harris. Is that the new euphemism for a married man with a mistress half his age?

It's preferable to, 'Banged her like a screen door'.

I've been hearing her name (literally) non stop for the last week and nobody says it the same.
When I see it on paper I assume it's "kuh mala", like The Ugandan Giant.

Some people say it like they'd say camera, like kah mah lah, etc...this bitch needs to change her name.

"I'm going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?"

So that's what Trump meant when he was speaking of a 10 y/o child. Thanks for clearing that up.

You can tell how paranoid the right is by the trash they dig up.

Uhhh, Willie Brown wrote about it in his weekly column for the San Francisco Chronicle, so that is 100% wrong.

Nulli got it right, Sen. Harris' people wanted to get ahead of the story so they asked Willie to start the ball rolling.

Your "observable reality"? No wonder you are so confused .... try reading a book ... about anything in your case.
