Kamala Harris Tweeted, #BelieveSurvivors, Won’t Believe Woman Who Accused Her Aide of Sexual Harassment

As Lena Dunham reminds us, it’s easy to believe all women, until one of them accuses one of your male friends and allies.

During the Kavanaugh circus, Senator Kamala Harris was riding the Believe All Women express and tweeted, #BelieveSurvivors. Now her faith, as Darth Vader would say, is lacking, after it emerged that one of her aides had been accused of sexual harassment.

Sen. Kamala Harris said Thursday that she did not know about the allegations of harassment made against one of her longtime staff members, who resigned Wednesday after The Sacramento Bee inquired about a $400,000 harassment and retaliation settlement resulting from his time working for Harris at the California Department of Justice.

“I did not,” she said on the steps outside the U.S. Capitol. “Nope.”

Larry Wallace, who was the director of the Division of Law Enforcement under then-Attorney General Harris, was accused by his former executive assistant Danielle Hartley in December 2016 of “gender harassment” and other demeaning behavior, including frequently asking her to crawl under his desk to change the paper in his printer.

“It’s something that I take very seriously, and I think we all should,” Harris said. She did not answer whether she believes Hartley but said she has “not talked to her directly.”
