Kamala Harris, the $6-million candidate, proudly tells us she's never had a non-government job

Could this be enough to finish the loathsome Kamala Harris off?

Here's a story from the Daily Caller about the work record of this far-left presidential candidate:

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris bragged on Twitter Wednesday about never having held a non-government job.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg urged presidential candidates to disclose income from when they worked in the private sector after agreeing to release more tax returns from when he worked at McKinsey & Co., a management consulting firm. Harris tweeted in response to this news that disclosing her number would be easy, because she has only worked for "The People."

All the rest of us who somehow managed to work in the private sector are tainted.  The private sector is dirty, see, and anyone who's ever worked in it is motivated by filthy lucre.  Only she is "pure."

As if government didn't rely on the taxes produced by that tainted money-grubbing private sector to keep itself afloat and expanding.  Maybe she should ask how well that idea worked out in Venezuela, where the private sector is actually dead and only those who work for "the people" have actual jobs now.

That kind of left-think is despicable enough as it is, but Kamala Harris manages to take it farther.  According to the Daily Caller, Harris is a very, very rich woman, despite not working anywhere near the private sector as she says.

Although Harris has never worked in the private sector, her life of government service has been good to her. The presidential candidate is worth around $6 million, which she shares with her husband Douglas Emhoff, Forbes previously reported. Assets include multiple multi-million dollars homes and retirement accounts worth over $1 million.

Harris gained a substantial pay raise in book advance payments from publisher Penguin Random House for her book "The Truths We Hold." She listed over $550,000 in a 2019 financial disclosure from these advance payments, Forbes reported.

So working for "the people" is lucrative, indeed, just as it is for oodles of corrupt congress creatures described in Peter Schweizer's Throw Them All Out.

It's never a good look for politicians to brag about never working for the private sector.  Eric Holder once did it, and sure enough, his weather balloons about running for president went bust fast.  Harris's claims are especially offensive because she offers it as evidence of her purity over the rest of us, the deplorables.

When the heck is she going to leave this presidential race and retreat, Tom and Daisy Buchanan–style, back into her money?  One can only hope that as word gets out on this (and she fails to beat yet another retreat), it comes fast.
