A bombshell new report from NBC News published over the weekend reveals Sen. Kamala Harris retained a tax-payer funded security detail provided by the Los Angeles Police Department even while traveling to other cities throughout the state.
“Armed, plain-clothes LAPD officers were dispatched to California cities outside of Los Angeles at least a dozen times to provide security for U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris at public events, media appearances, and a party,” reports NBC.
The report shows Los Angeles tax-payers paid for air travel, hotel accommodations, vehicle rentals, pricey meals, and other expenses while protecting the potential 2020 candidate.
The total bill -without police overtime pay- came in at approximately $28,000.
“Between January 2017 and July 2018 the records show LAPD officers flew to San Francisco at least seven times, including a trip in April 2017, when Harris gave TV interviews, a trip in March 2018 for a speech at a YMCA event, and a visit in June 2018, to escort Harris to the San Francisco Pride parade, where LAPD officers were visible in video and pictures captured along the parade route,” adds the report.
