Kamala Harris Advisor Resigns After Harassment Suit

A senior adviser for Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) reportedly resigned Wednesday after the Sacramento Bee “inquired about a $400,000 harassment and retaliation settlement resulting from his time working for Harris at the California Department of Justice.”

Larry Wallace “served as the director of the Division of Law Enforcement” at the California Department of Justice while Harris was the Golden State’s attorney general in 2016. Harris reportedly then hired him to be a senior adviser in her Sacramento Senate office.

Danielle Hartley, whom Wallace recruited in 2011 to be his assistant, filed the “gender harassment” lawsuit against the California Department of Justice in 2016, claiming she was “being harassed and demeaned due to her gender.”
