In a nutshell, Kamala Harris has proven herself a psychopathic career climber more concerned with getting ahead than getting justice, representation or any other such petty inconveniences. She is an appalling and utterly tone-deaf pick in this era of BLM and mass protests and unrest driven by police brutality, militarization, systemic racism, and injustice, the latter of which she is unfortunately exceedingly well versed in, featuring a laundry list of such egrigious offenses as:

#1: Repeatedly refusing the admission of potentially exonerary DNA evidence which was later court ordered by a judge to be submitted. Kamala Harris Refused DNA Test in Murder Case of Kevin Cooper

#2: Repeatedly refusing to release an innocent man from prison, then refused to compensate him for a decade wrongly served in prison.

#3: Repeatedly and systemically violated defendants’ rights by hiding damaging information about a compromised police drug lab technician getting high off evidence and resisted initial court orders by Superior Court Judge Anne-Christine Massullo to disclose such information, Kamala incredibly arguing that she was 'unfairly biased' because her husband was a defense attorney in an futile and ridiculous attempt to avoid doing so; this eventually resulted in the dismissal of approximately a thousand cases: 1,000 San Francisco drug cases to be dismissed in lab scandal – The Mercury News | https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...5df094-392b-11e9-a06c-3ec8ed509d15_story.html

#4: Largely ignored bombshell evidence exposing widespread deputy misconduct, perjury and evidence tampering/destruction until much later where she then dragged her feet in starting an ineffectual sham of a probe that found no one guilty or accountable, and resulted in 0 charges filed.

#5: Related to #4: appealed the dismissal of an indictment when a state prosecutor appended two fabricated statements to a confession in an attempt to maximize sentencing.

#6: Set up and oversaw a grossly ineffective Mortgage Fraud Strike Force meant to deal with foreclosure fraud; despite receiving hundreds of complaints, it prosecuted only 10 cases in a period of three years. Less equipped county district attorneys and AGs in other states incredibly filed many more California-based cases despite inferior resources.

#7: Failed to prosecute OneWestBank despite it repeatedly breaking California foreclosure laws ( Mnuchin's Bank Accused of "Widespread Misconduct" ) , and despite the presentation of uncovered evidence of widespread misconduct; Kamala Harris dismissed a year long investigation recommending civil enforcement action against the company, refusing to prosecute or act on those recommendations while offering no explanation for this at all.

It is to be noted that this list is by no means exhaustive.

In summary, Kamala was a patently idiotic choice that is diametrically opposite and opposed to the current and well-justified zeitgeist. Should Biden win, he will do so in spite, and not because of, Harris as VP.

So I guess that means you're still not voting for her right?

Actually I plan to vote Biden regardless, but that doesn't make her any more palatable or less patently awful a VP choice. Honestly Kamala was easily one of the worst possible picks in contention, if not the worst for the many, many reasons mentioned in the OP.

Contrary to the views of some on this forum, not everyone who finds something to criticize about a Dem is their political opponent, a Russian troll or a Republican.

Good write up. Kamala is a horrendous candidate. My brother texted me today after finding out with the following comment "I didn't think it would be possible for Biden to not get me to vote for him." I fear that he's not the only one that feels that way.

I just love all the partisan bs cheap shot at the longtime front runner for VP.

Not enough courage to make these claims Hoping it wouldn't happen.

Harris is an amazing pick. Strong proud American who is a great compliment to Biden.

All the personal attacks are evidence of fear and desperation.

Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?

If you vote for Biden and he wins count on Harris sitting in the Oval Office within two years of the Inauguration. Take that to the bank.

These aren't personal attacks, these are factual indictments of Kamala Harris' record and her character. That Trump is patently awful doesn't somehow obviate her objectively terrible record as a prosecutor and AG.

Again, for the record, I will be voting Biden come November, but thanks to Kamala as VP, I will be doing so all the more grudgingly.

She was the prosecuting attorney for San Francisco for a long time, and she put a lot of bad guys away.

Then she was the attorney general of California.

She's a good "law and order" pick.

I love Bernie, but I'm sorry, he's factually wrong on this per the evidence and articles presented, and unlike in the case of establishment Dem group thinkers/hive-minders/jersey bearers, there is room for dissent among the progressive left.

I will do my part to see that Biden is elected the next POTUS, but Kamala was, as stated earlier, quite possibly the worst VP pick in contention for a wealth of legitimate and factual reasons.

This coming from a socialist/communist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union. There's a guy you can trust.
Whether or not you like Sanders, he is popular and has a great many supporters. The fact that he is enthusiastically supporting the Biden/Harris ticket is indeed good news for them.

Strange, my vote for Biden is more enthusiastic.

Personal may be from a different post when she was called a whore.

Vice President Elect Harris sheds no tears over the loss of your vote. I will enjoy watching Sen Harris and President Obama campaigning together to energize the black community to exercise there right on election day.

Why would a laundry list of serious failings, incompetence and bad faith conduct during her time as AG make you more likely to vote for her?

I'm voting for Biden regardless, but yes, like others in this thread, go on reflexively assuming that you know me and my intentions merely because I'm pointing out how factually poor a candidate Kamala is.

This forum needs a betting section for people who feel they are so able to predict future events.

I have no way of predicting the death of Biden or Trump. Just by the looks of them I would have to say Trump looks the unhealthier of the two. But I have seen obese people live into their 80's.

Not really. He didn't say he was going to vote for Trump either.

Actually she is a very bad pick, her entire run for president was destroyed in a single debate by gabbard doing nothing more than bringing upp her record, any vp that can only help so long as no one anywhere mentions her record is not a good choice, especially when trump and pence and fox news will have no issues reminding people over and over again about her record which is public knowledge.
