Skip to comments.(CA Attorney General) Race Pits Dream Prosecutor Against S.F.'s Nightmare DA

I don't understand why San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris wants to be California's next attorney general. Then again, it's hard to understand why she even ran for DA -- other than because she has a yen for elective office.
She hasn't been an aggressive prosecutor. She hasn't been a competent administrator. She seems more interested in advancing liberal causes than putting bad guys behind bars.
It is a sad testament to the Democratic Party that Harris is its chosen nominee to run against Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley, a consummate lawman whose tenure could serve as a model for both toughness and fairness.
Consider her record. To start, Harris was in charge when her office aided and abetted in a dangerous misinterpretation of the city's 1989 sanctuary city law. City officials refused to notify federal immigration officials when police arrested juvenile offenders -- or offenders who claimed to be juveniles -- on felony charges.
Under her watch (for lack of a better word), the city flew drug offenders to Honduras. When federal authorities stopped this practice in 2008, the city sent eight Hondurans who had been convicted to group homes, from which they escaped.
One Sunday afternoon in June 2008, San Franciscan Tony Bologna, 48, was driving home with his sons, Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16. All three were shot dead. Police charged Edwin Ramos, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who had been arrested for several felonies as a youth but apparently benefited from the city's liberal sanctuary policy.

Kamela Harris is a strong supporter of the Open Borders Agenda, and innocent people have lost their lives as a result. This is one of the most important state races in the country.
The Three Plagues of the Dem party:
Open Borders Kamala, Ohaha, his globe-trotting wife.
Well... Sorry, but what in God's name would normal, decent human beings be doing anywhere near a place like San Francisco?
Steve Cooley appears to take this campaign lightly. We are soon in October and NO TV ads by his campaign.
Cooley is doing a lot of radio ad’s
I think his prosecution of the Bell corruption case should help him in the polls.
Kamala Harris worked for Obama’s “Truth Squad” in CA.
“Camp Obama announced the formation of its ‘’Truth Squad’’ effort here Sunday, headed by the likes of Reps. George Miller, Barbara Lee, Zoe Lofgren, Linda Sanchez and Adam Schiff, along with San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris and LA Federation of Labor Secretary-Treasurer Maria Elena Durazo; the team held a conference call with California reporters to herald the effort.”
In the real world, there wouldn’t even be a race between Harris the caricature and the prosecutor. But this is California. Harris gets it by a landslide.
Need proof? Jerry Brown.
at least you found a picture of Michelle smiling.
Or, does she only smile in the company of other African-Americans? Gonna start watching more carefully.
Doesn’t that photo all by itself absolutely scream Desiree Rogers?
Another photogenic democrat black quota princess who’s had everything handed to her in life.
No wonder she and the First Couple are buddies.
SF seems to be big on that, but Statewide office may require some actual campaigning and competition.
Not to mention real work.
so do I, harris is just a SF hack
For a minute there, I thought you said Katherine Harris. Revived all the divisive fights we had over her. LOL
