Ronna McDaniel on Twitter

When Kamala Harris was AG, her top aide harassed a staffer & the office paid $1M+ in settlements. As a city prosecutor, her crime lab technician snorted evidence & 1,000 drug-related cases were dismissed. Her track record is awful. She has no business running the federal govt.

Claim 1: 

” When Kamala Harris was AG, her top aide harassed a staffer & the office paid $1M+ in settlements”

Fact Check1: 

According to this report by US today mentioned that Kamala’s long time aide ” after the Sacramento Bee asked him about a 2016 harassment lawsuit he settled for $400,000″ .

 

Claim 2:

” As a city prosecutor, her crime lab technician snorted evidence & 1,000 drug-related cases were dismissed”

Fact Check 2: True

  1. Harris took full responsibility for her management of the AG’s office during the Deborah Madden scandal when it was discovered that Madden who had a previous criminal history had taken material evidence from her work in the form of cocain salts for her own personal use. The issue that led to more 1,000 cases being dismissed was actually due to Harris’ office failing to disclose this in cases that relied on results from the lab that Madden worked in, as required by Brady vs. Maryland 1963 decision, to defense attorneys for three months.
