As San Francisco DA, Kamala Harris’s Office Stopped Cooperating with Victims of Catholic Church Child Abuse
The Catholic sex abuse scandal (your editor was raised Catholic) has spanned the globe and over multiple decades now.

But when it came to taking on the Catholic Church, survivors of clergy sexual abuse say that Harris turned a blind eye, refusing to take action against clergy members accused of sexually abusing children when it meant confronting one of the city’s most powerful political institutions…
