Senator Kamala Harris of California, a rising favorite in the Democratic presidential primary race, may want to rethink her plans. News just broke that could upend her campaign and fans are devastated.
Coincidentally, as Sen. Harris’ time as California attorney general comes under scrutiny, the public is currently having a difficult time researching her records due to a redesign of the state’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) website.
The department’s assistant secretary for communications, Jeffrey Callison, responded to the controversy and said, “Making our website fully compliant was a significant and ongoing undertaking.”
He went on to say that this “required a redesign of the look and feel of the website, and a need to evaluate all of the thousands of documents and other files that were linked to our website.”
As a result of the “redesign,” however, reports on incarceration in California — including during the Harris years — are far more difficult to obtain, even though they used to be easily searchable.
“Some older documents have been removed from our website but are still available upon request,” further remarked Callison. He also said that other documents are only offline temporarily. People are understandably skeptical about the timing of this change.
