Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown has admitted to an extramarital affair with California Senator Kamala Harris.
Brown also admitted to giving Harris her first state jobs.
In a short article in the San Francisco Chronicle Brown admitted to the extra-marital affair and to appointing Harris to two state commissions.
"Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago. Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker.
"And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco. I have also helped the careers of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a host of other politicians."
The San Francisco Weekly reported on Kamala’s affair with Willie Brown in 2003, but noted that Harris routinely tried to distance herself from her him.
