The former Attorney General of the largest state in the Union refused to say whether she believes a “convicted felon” should be allowed to serve in the U.S. Senate.
The RNC posted a video of a tracker asking California Sen. Kamala Harris is she thinks a “convicted felon,” presumably New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, who is on trial for corruption, should be allowed to continue to serve if a court finds him guilty.
The tracker, who was persistent but polite, said, “Sen. Harris, should a convicted felon be allowed to serve in the Senate?”
All told, the prospective 2020 Democratic candidate for president was asked 10 times, and 10 times, she ignored the question.
But her handlers didn’t.
One tried to block the camera lens, while another tried to disrupt the filmer’s path.
At one point, Harris acknowledged the cameraman and looked at him as he asked, but she still refused to say a convict shouldn’t serve in the Senate.
“Sen. Harris, are you going to answer the question?”
