Kamala Harris Wikipedia Page Purged Amidst Vice Presidential Consideration

How convenient.

Published

on

An online war has developed over Kamala Harris’ Wikipedia page, with a powerful Wikipedia editor making 500 revisions to the California Democrat Senator’s page. The edits, which come as Harris is vetted by Joe Biden as a possible Vice Presidential candidate, largely erase accusations of prosecutorial misconduct on the part of the former presidential candidate.

The Intercept initially documented the edit war occurring on Harris’ entry last week.

Wikipedia editor Bnguyen1114 has erased information documenting aspects of Harris’ criminal justice and political career that could damage the corporate Democrat’s popularity with progressives, such as her “tough-on-crime” campaign strategy in in a San Francisco district attorney election. Information about a trip to Israel in which Harris met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also been erased.

One editor opposing the public-relations themed rebrand of the former federal prosecutor’s Wikipedia paged slammed the insurgent editor for his attempt to promote Harris. “[y]ou seem to have gone through a database of press releases from Harris’s office, cataloging every single one and adding it to the article. That is not how we write encyclopedic articles.

Bngyuen1114 is essentially shameless in his push to sanitize Harris’ reputation in posted explanations of his edits on Harris’ Wikipedia entry, stating that “I‘m not a Democratic operative, I do this for free because I’m sick of misinformation about Kamala Harris.

Surges of Wikipedia edits have been made involving previous potential Vice Presidential candidates, such as Sarah Palin in 2008 and Tim Kaine in 2016.

The convenient timing of the edits is conspicuous, and a politically charged attempt to cover up questionable elements of the California Democrat’s record.

RINO Extraordinaires John Kasich and Jeff Flake Floated as Possible Biden Cabinet Members

These guys have no popular support.

Published

A Politico report has identified alleged “conservatives” that the Biden campaign is considering for Cabinet posts should he win the election. John Kasich and Jeff Flake were two of the most notable.

Other possible Republicans include Meg Whitman, the CEO of Quibi and former CEO of eBay, current governor of Massachusetts Charlie Barker, and former representative from Pennsylvania Charlie Dent.

Whitman and Kasich were speakers at the Democratic National Convention back in August.

The consideration of Republicans, however, is not a universally liked idea among the left. Executive director of Demand Progress David Segal told Politico: “My primary concern is that he involves people in the Cabinet who push back against corporate power and support a massive economic stimulus and the broad provision of health care. Unfortunately, there are no prominent Republicans I know of who are on board with that agenda.”

Director of the Revolving Door Project Jeff Hauser also told Politico that “I don’t understand why someone who says, ‘I am the Democratic Party,’ would then hand benefits to someone who’s not a Democrat.”

Despite not technically being Democrats, Kasich and Flake often seem indistinguishable from Democrats in their rhetoric and attitudes on certain issues. Big League Politics has published stories about Kasich praising the Green New Deal for “asking the right question” and about Flake vowing to vote for Biden because his presidency would be “better for conservatism” than Donald Trump’s.

You know what would actually be better for conservatism? If these guys just quit identifying as Republicans and became Democrats. We want nothing to do with them; let the party of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have them.
