When Joe Biden named Kamala Harris as his running mate, many Americans began the countdown as to when Harris would replace Joe Biden.
Those plans could take a hit.
And now Kamala Harris is facing one family scandal that is bad news for Democrats.
It turns out Joe Biden is not the only member of his administration whose family members get rich making money off their connections to power.
The stories of Hunter Biden’s alleged corruption and influence peddling are well known.
But now Kamala Harris is feeling the heat after her niece was admonished by White House officials over her attempts to capitalize on her aunt’s elected office to enrich herself.
36-year-old Meena Harris began promoting her connections to Kamala Harris to boost her lifestyle brand promoting a book with her aunt’s name on it as well as sweatshirts displaying Kamala Harris catchphrases from the campaign.
In comments to the Los Angeles Times, a White House official said they could not undo the past, but reprimanded Meena Harris stating that her behavior could not continue because it ran afoul of administration ethics rules.
“Some things can’t be undone,” the Biden official told the Los Angeles Times. “That being said: Behavior needs to change.”
Meena Harris defended her conduct claiming every action she took was above board.
“Since the beginning of the campaign, I have insisted on upholding all legal and ethical standards and will continue to strictly adhere to the ethics rules of the Biden/Harris White House,” Harris stated.
“With regards to Phenomenal, it was always our plan to remove the likeness of the Vice President from the website before the Inauguration, and refrain from using her likeness in any products or campaigns going forward,” Harris concluded.
However, that disguised the fact that Harris’s swampy behavior went well beyond plugging a sweatshirt.
The Los Angeles Times reported, “But even after the briefing with ethics lawyers, Meena flew to the inauguration on a private plane with a Biden donor and posted about the trip on Instagram, which was first reported by Politico. She launched a production company that produced a video with a political group to celebrate her aunt. And she collaborated on special-edition Beats by Dre headphones that used a slogan popularized by Kamala Harris — ‘The first but not the last’ — and that were sent to celebrities.”
Hunter Biden is currently the subject of multiple criminal investigations.
Joe Biden’s brother James was also linked to a hospital company raided by the FBI as part of a fraud investigation.
If Meena Harris continues to raise ethical concerns, it will fuel the perception that the Biden administration is really just a grift for family members to rake in the big bucks and provide an opening for the Republican Party to craft a “culture of corruption” theme for the 2022 midterm election.
