She also is the Democratic vice presidential nominee for the 2020 election. Kamala has been married to her husband, attorney Douglas Emhoff, since 2014.
Democrat Willie Brown, on the other hand was San Francisco’s first Black who was sworn as Mayor. There were plenty of surprises for people in flamboyant California.
During 1990’s he was serving as speaker of the California assembly.
Did Kamala Harris have an affair with Willie Brown?
Here comes the gossip- Kamala Harris had an affair with the powerful San Francisco politician Willie Brown.
They met when Brown was 60 years old and Kamala was 29. Willie then was married to his wife, though they were separated on a personal level.
Willie 1994-1995 when he was serving as the speaker, He appointed Kamala two lucrative political appointment. The question comes in our mind, after so much help and owing to their affair, Why did Willie dump Kamala after he was voted first black mayor of the city.
Guess What? Brown is well known for his notorious nature, love of sports cars and flash designer suits. To add on to the list he was named as one of the World’s 10 sexiest men by Playgirl magazine. Was it to get into limelight? Or old men love the attention of sexy young women?
A Sacramento Bee reporter claimed 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.”
What was Kamala Harris’s image of Willie Brown?
Brown really didn’t have a very gentlemanly image of him around the public. He simply seemed to be with a ‘succession’ of beautiful women. Probably obsessed with other women than his own.
This is the reason that despite being married for 25 years, he was claimed to be ‘the real Slick Willy’ by Bill Clinton. Their relationship was no more a secret. Obviously, such things do not stay hidden for long!
Memes on Kamala Harris:
Surprisingly but predictably , the internet was flooded with rumors about Kamala and Willie. The social media was circulating negative memes on Harris.
They were stating that years prior, Harris had an “extramarital” affair with former San Francisco Mayor and California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown. The worst part, there were allegations on Harris’s political success and achievement being only because she was Brown’s so-called mistress. These claims were truly misleading.
To our surprise and puzzlement , when Brown was inaugurated in 1996, his ‘estranged’ wife Blanche was still by his side. Even though they had amicably split two years prior to the event.
The press was expecting the nonconformist politician to get along his attractive young girlfriend, Kamala during the event. Kamala was an ambitious deputy district attorney back then.
Not to forget Kamala was Willie’s constant companion during his campaign trial. Was it all about having someone during your hard times?
Brown had appointed Harris to the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and then to the Medical Assistance Commission. That position paid Kamala more than $400,000 over five years, according to sources.
Brown also gave Harris a BMW. Was is really just a give and take relationship with a validity of the contract?
Brown addressed their past relationship in San Francisco Chronicle on Jan. 26, 2019. It was just a day before Kamala officially launched her presidential campaign.
He said: “Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago. Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker” “And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco.
I have also helped the careers of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Senator, Dianne Feinstein and a host of other politicians”. Unfortunately he dumped her for no reason.
Kamala Harris response to Willie Brown on ‘shaping her career’
Harris on the other hand had been disappointed by the claims, that Brown influenced her career and her achievements. Probably making her feel like an unworthy and opportunistic woman who dated a successful man for her interests.
Although Brown supported Harris in her successful 2003 run for San Francisco district attorney. Kamala totally distanced herself from him in that race.
During an interview with SF Weekly Kamala stated that Brown – whose career was dogged by corruption allegations – was an “albatross hanging around” her neck.
At the time of her first run for office for San Francisco district attorney, SF Weekly quoted that Harris explained: “I refuse to design my campaign around criticizing Willie Brown for the sake of appearing to be independent when I have no doubt that I am independent of him — and that he would probably right now express some fright about the fact that he cannot control me”.
She also said that Willie’s career is over. But Kamala, herself is alive and kicking for the next 40 years. Kamala feels that she does not owe Willie Brown anything.
Also, Harris did not run for political office until her relationship with Brown ended. She had allegation of cronyism in Willie’s appointment of her two well-payed political posts.
In 2003, she made a successful bid for the office of San Francisco district attorney. She held the position until she was elected to serve as the attorney general of California.
She held that post until she was elected in 2016 to serve in the United States Senate representing the state of California.
