(Washington Free Beacon) The 1994 crime bill Kamala Harris attacked on Wednesday was crafted by her brother-in-law.
Harris criticized the crime bill during a stop in New Hampshire as a way of criticizing former vice president Joe Biden. Harris said the bill contributed to “mass incarceration in our country,” established the “federal three strikes law,” and “funded the building of more prisons in the states.”
Biden was the bill’s lead sponsor in the Senate, but working on it in the Clinton administration was Harris’s brother-in-law Tony West, who is married to Maya Harris, Kamala Harris’s sister and her campaign chair. West, a former Obama administration official, also chaired Kamala Harris’s transition team after she was elected to the Senate in 2016.
