Kamala Harris and The Missing Millions

(Photo credit: Los Angeles Slimes)
The Los Angeles Slimes reports that Kamala Harris, the democrat candidate for California Attorney General, has a problem explaining what happened to $3.7M of federal grant funds that she took to prosecute illegal aliens. Considering that Harris makes no secret of her 'Sanctuary City' policy towards those in the country illegally, it is surprising that the Feds gave her the money, not surprising that she did not use it for its intended purpose. Here's the story as reported by the Los Angeles Slimes:

Time doesn’t move fast enough for Kamala Harris, the progressive San Francisco liberal democrat who is vying to defeat front-running Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley in the November 2010 election to be California’s next Attorney General.
Six months ago Harris, San Francisco’s lackluster DA, was most likely banking on the “Obama factor” to elevate her to higher office. Harris, once hailed as the “female Barack Obama,” is now probably cursing at the calendar as day by day more and more evidence of her appalling record of failure and outright deception comes to light. Even hard core liberals must now be wondering how they could have fallen for a ‘no-hoper’ like Ms. Harris.
Hot on the heels of Harris’s “shot in the foot” attack ad against Steve Cooley over campaign donations, comes the alarming news that Harris could not account for $3.7M in Federal grants that she received.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that when Harris was questioned about $3.7m that she received in 2006, she was unable to explain why  that money was not used to prosecute cases that “fit the program’s criteria,” namely, “reimbursement for prosecuting crimes on behalf of federal authorities.” But the Feds could find no evidence that Harris had spent their (our) money for that purpose.
Where did the money go? According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Harris had no answer and was trying “to get to the bottom” of how her office obtained millions of dollars from a grant program for prosecution of border crimes that federal auditors have concluded [she] had no right to receive.
Under the Harris regime, San Francisco has been a ‘Sanctuary City’ for border criminals. Realistically there’s no way Harris would prosecute border crimes as that stands in conflict with Harris’s beliefs. Yet it seems that she not only took the money, but could not explain what she did with it.
Six weeks from election day, California voters are getting a rude awakening to the reality of having Harris as California’s Attorney General; she’s already been shown to be a hypocrite and now she appears to be a hustler.
You’ve been warned.

The Slimes had an excellent piece on Kamala Harris and her "shot in the foot" attack ad campaign against Steve Cooley. Harris is such a pant load that she attacked Cooley over campaign donations, but she forgot that she had taken dirty money from a big democrat supporter who was a federal fugitive from justice and was sentenced to 24 years in prison. I know the description above doesn't exactly narrow the field when it comes to corrupt democrats, so I'll give you the name; Norman Hsu. Google it. Harris explained her failure to follow through on her promise to divest herself of Hsu's dirty money by claiming to have "forgotten" about it. Guess it's not that important to her. No wonder they're calling her Harris the Hypocrite.

Harris is the female Obama, just as devious and just as full of it. I think Americans have had enough of their brand of "hope" and will elect Cooley as it will take a strong AG to keep Meg in check, and an even stronger one if Moonbeam Jerry manages to become Governor. Nightmare scenario is Moonbeam and the female Obama - that really will mean it's time to leave the state.
