BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Sen. Kamala Harris, who was officially announced as Joe Biden’s running mate, has switched her stances on multiple issues throughout her time in public life, beginning as a local prosecutor in the early 2000s, including marijuana, immigration, and the death penalty.
In regards to the death penalty, a separate charge, leveled at Harris during a debate last year by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, was that she blocked DNA testing in the case of a death row inmate who many believed to be innocent.
Harris has now responded to that allegation after Biden’s nomination. “Yes I blocked the the DNA testing,” she said in a tweet. “Had we found that the death row inmate was innocent, it would’ve been very expensive to begin the process to secure his freedom. Executing him, and paying his family a nominal feel for the injustice, would’ve been more cost effective. This shows that I am fiscally responsible and I can make difficult financial decisions. Can President Trump claim to have my same level of boldness? I don’t think so!”
