Former San Fransisco Mayor Willie Brown, who recently admitted to having an affair with Kamala Harris, and subsequently helping her climb the “career ladder,” is speaking out on the upcoming 2020 election.
Fox News reported that Brown said, “Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago,” Brown wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle.
“Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was [California] Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco.”
Brown, 84, pointed out that he also helped the careers of other prominent California Democrats, such as U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
Brown says his ex-girlfriend can’t beat Trump.
Here’s now Harris would debate President Trump, if she receives the nomination.

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw shade at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.
In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:
Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.
[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.
You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.
Let’s just hope Democrats can figure out that we need to go beyond the left and motivate voters across the board, just as midterm congressional campaigns did under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.
Brown acknowledged last month that he had dated Harris and given her jobs that helped her early political career.
Harris is running on a slate of left-wing policies, including “Medicare for All” and the so-called “Green New Deal,” which she embraced last week even though it calls for radical socialist measures such as paying Americans who are “unwilling” to work.
She has also said she would be willing to “eliminate” private health insurance, a position supported by only 13% of Americans.
