    KAMALA HARRIS REFUSED TO INVESTIGATE DONOR

    Yahoo News reports that when she was the attorney general of California, Kamala Harris declined to investigate Herbalife, the nutritional supplement company that has been accused of fraudulent marketing practices. In 2015, prosecutors in the San Diego office of the California attorney general sent Harris a lengthy, detailed memorandum urging such an investigation. However, Harris did not initiate one.

    Other states did. So did the Federal Trade Commission. It obtained a $200 million settlement from Herbalife. Illinois obtained a settlement too. But California remained on the sidelines, notwithstanding the recommendation of the San Diego prosecutors in a memo described as “meticulous.”

    According to Yahoo News, Harris never explained her decision not to investigate Herbalife. The explanation may lie in two facts.

    First, three weeks after the San Diego letter was sent, Harris received the first of three donations to her campaign for the U.S. Senate from Heather Podesta, the Washington lobbyist whose ex-husband Tony’s firm, then called the Podesta Group, had worked for Herbalife since 2013. Heather Podesta’s own lobbying firm, Heather Podesta and Partners, would soon be hired by Herbalife.

    Second, Harris’ husband, Douglas Emhoff, was employed by a law firm that was representing Herbalife at the time.

    She probably zoned out smoking pot and listening to music that hadn't been created yet.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    Herbalife has been a known scam for decades. I would think politicians of all stripes would know better than to take donations from them.

    But then again, so is AMWAY, and that didn't stop Trump from making the wife of their CEO his Secretary of Education.

    I don't think Harris is going to get the nomination. She started strong and is now unravelling.
