Democratic Senator and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Kamala Harris refused to answer questions about her future campaign financing; deflecting when asked whether she would accept political donations from large corporations.
Harris was speaking at a town hall event in California when she was asked for a “specific answer” over whether she would say “no thanks” to all political donations from large companies or corporate lobbyists.
“If a corporation or a corporate lobbyist wants to give you money for a campaign, will you tell them, ‘Thanks, but no thanks?’” asked one attendant.
“It depends” deflected Harris. “And that’s why we have rules that require that any donation that anyone receives needs to be disclosed.”
“So that you can do an assessment and the voters can do an assessment and look at where the contributions come from and make your decisions about whether those contributions have influenced the way that people act and the way that people vote,” she added.
