COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

A desperate VP candidate. Kamala Harris released a former aide from a mysterious non-disclosure agreement signed during the senator’s past career as Attorney General of California. Terri Carbaugh worked under Harris as chief deputy attorney general for administration and policy when she signed the mysterious NDA in 2011 in exchange for a settlement of $34,900 in taxpayer money. Two days after Carbaugh signed the NDA, she resigned. News of the past settlement and NDA was first reported by Business Insider.
“Senator Harris strongly opposes the use of non-disclosure agreements to silence anyone. She fully supports the release of Terri Carbaugh from this NDA if she chooses,” Sabrina Singh, a senior Harris advisor, told the outlet. The settlement amount is just below the $35,000 threshold which would have required it to be reported to the state director of finance along with proposed steps to avoid similar payouts in the future.
Harris is among the final contenders for selection as Joe Biden’s 2020 running mate. An announcement on the veep candidate has been pushed back to Aug. 10, and allows for another week of furious jockeying behind the scenes by the women vying for the job. It shows Biden is not a strong candidate.
