Willie rocks the house….do ya think?
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown addressed his past relationship with Sen. Kamala Harris in a letter to the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday and acknowledged giving her appointments that furthered her career.
“Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago,” wrote Brown, who said he had “been peppered with calls from the national media about my ‘relationship’ with Kamala Harris, particularly since it became obvious that she was going to run for president.”
Brown was married at the time he and Harris dated, but – because he had been “estranged from his wife” Blanche Brown since 1981, according to People magazine –the relationship was not kept secret. A Sacramento Bee reporter told People that Brown “had a succession of girlfriends” and would “go to a party with his wife on one arm and his girlfriend on the other.”
Or from American Greatness, “‘Poontronage’: When Kamala Met Willie.“
As reported in Refinery29, Kamala Harris said of her mentor and boyfriend, Mayor Willie Brown, “His career is over; I will be alive and kicking for the next 40 years. I do not owe him a thing.” Poor old Mayor Willie, “The Ayatollah of the Assembly” — Blown off. Kicked to the curb. 86ed. Discarded like a used condom by a shark even ‘sharkier‘ than himself.
It only took a few days after Sen. Kamala Harris officially launched her presidential bid for some to run with misogynistic allegations that the California junior senator “slept her way to the top.”The allegations were fueled by an open letter her ex boyfriend Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco, wrote about dating Harris in the mid 1990s.
