Kamala Harris’ Totalitarianism

Steven Greenhut: California Attorney General Kamala Harris and her union allies no doubt have amused themselves at the way they destroyed a proposed pension reform initiative by giving it a false and unfair title, but what Harris did is one of the most despicable acts I’ve seen in government in a while. Harris runs the Justice Department, yet she chose to wield her power to help her political allies and harm her opponents by posting a blatantly dishonest title. This is a totalitarian approach. If there is no semblance of fairness in the Justice Department, then all we are left with is the exercise of raw political power. Fear a society in which people like Harris rule the roost. Actually, we’re already in that society.
