Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris adopted a Chinese name to garner more votes from the Chinese-American community during her 2003 run for San Francisco District Attorney, The National Pulse can today reveal.
The move is just the latest example of Harris’s phony politicking and further obscures claims she’s the first African-American pick for Vice President.
During the 2003 race, which Harris won by less than one percentage point, she adopted the Chinese name “He Jinli” in a calculated attempt to secure more votes from San Francisco’s sizable Chinese community.
Chinese-language media reporting recounted the process by which Harris adopted the name, at the advice of local Chinese leader and friend Su Rongli:
Harris was identified as “starting the tradition” of non-Chinese individuals running for public office adopting Chinese names, as she was the first candidate to do so.
After Harris inaugurated the trend, California outlawed the use of candidates using foreign names different from their English names on ballots in 2019.
Harris and Su, both lawyers, met each other through their involvement with the Asian Bar Association of the Bay Area according to Su.
The association is yet another blow to Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden and his mainstream media counterparts’ insistence that Harris is African-America; she’s half Indian and half Jamaican.
The report concludes with an emphasis on how despite Harris adopting a Chinese name, the vote-seeking display translated into “little interaction with the Chinese community”:
Clearly, after decades of pandering to different communities, Kamala Harris has perfected the art form. Whether or not the American public at large will fall for the dupe as so many Californians did remains to be seen.
