Kamala Harris aide resigns after harassment settlement surfaces | The Sacramento Bee
By McClatchy

A longtime top staff member of U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris resigned Wednesday after The Sacramento Bee inquired about a $400,000 harassment and retaliation settlement resulting from his time working for Harris at the California Department of Justice.

Larry Wallace, who served as the director of the Division of Law Enforcement under then-Attorney General Harris, was accused by his former executive assistant in December 2016 of “gender harassment” and other demeaning behavior, including frequently asking her to crawl under his desk to change the paper in his printer.

The lawsuit was filed on Dec. 30, 2016, when Harris was still attorney general but preparing to be sworn in as California’s newly elected Democratic senator. It was settled less than five months later, in May 2017, by Xavier Becerra, who was appointed to replace her as attorney general.

So, this info was about to go public, the aide resigned. But if Harris was really for women's rights,  why was he still on her staff? Is the question being asked. Sorry, if this was posted already.

According to the lawsuit, Wallace placed his printer on the floor underneath his desk and ordered Hartley to replace the paper or ink on a daily basis. When she asked to move the printer to another location so she would not have to crawl under his desk in dresses and skirts, the lawsuit states, Wallace refused. Wallace frequently asked Hartley to put paper in the printer while he was sitting at his desk or in front of other male executives from the division, according to the lawsuit

Kinky.

A top aide to Senator Kamala Harris resigned abruptly on Wednesday after the Sacramento Bee questioned him about a $400,000 harassment and retaliation settlement against him while working for the Democrat at the California Department of Justice in 2017.

The accusation and lawsuit was leveled against Larry Wallace in December of 2016, involving “gender harassment” toward his former executive assistant and forcing her into “demeaning behavior.”

When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man [Sir William Keith], who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.

Someone just posted this story under scandal. I think I will move this to there, this is a bit bigger than state news maybe.
