Some things never change:
7/20/2017 Kamala Harris intros bipartisan bill re bail system
5/04/2018 BS *shocked* to learn about bail system
7/25/2018 BS intros bill, with no co-sponsors, re bail system
Receipt: After decades in public office, after Ferguson when the issue received nat'l attention, after 3 years of activists trying to inform him, after Harris intro’d a bill he should’ve read, here’s BS’ statement to Shaun King about his 5/04/2018 meeting with Philly’s DA Kramer.
Same old MO:
4/20/2018 Vox reports on Booker’s jobs guarantee bill, intro'd w co-sponsors Gillibrand, Harris, Merkley, Warren.
4/23/2018 WaPo reports BS will announce a jobs guarantee bill in the future, (Still hasn’t but he got media credit & that’s what’s important, amirite?)
Should explain why I mention co-sponsors. When a legislator is serious abt a bill, they work to get co-sponsors before introducing it. No co-sponsors is usually a tell it's a vanity bill, intro'd just to get cred or, more often in state legislatures, to appease a constituent.
