Wow. California Senator Kamala Harris has only been on the Biden ticket for a week and already she’s making bold moves to consolidate her power in the upcoming administration. Case in point, long time Biden associate and sometimes rival Corn Pop was arrested this morning, making Harris the only high profile African American in Biden’s orbit.
A spokeswoman for the future VP said that Kamala herself ordered the arrest, stating that, “Corn Pop was a bad dude who came at Joe with a rusty switch blade” and that they couldn’t have that sort of person associated with the campaign.
Corn Pop, who is well known for his public-pool antics with Joe Biden some 50 years ago, has been barred from commenting or speaking to the press by a gag order. Biden himself could not be reached for comment, but a campaign aide said all questions could go through Harris’s people from now on.
