Kamala Harris’s New Comms Chief Spread Election Legitimacy Conspiracies.


Vice President Kamala Harris’s new communications director declared George W. Bush an “illegitimate” president, insisting that competing Democratic candidate Al Gore “didn’t lose” the 2000 election in a series of tweets.

Jamal Simmons – a longtime Democratic operative and political analyst – was tapped to serve under Harris following the departure of Ashley Etienne, who left the vice president’s office last month along with several other staffers. Simmons previously served as the Deputy Communications Director for Gore’s campaign.

Simmons declared that his former boss “didn’t lose” in a Twitter thread from 2012.

“I said losing tickets. Gore Lieberman didn’t lose. (but same point),” he wrote.

“I worked for Gore 2000 & believe W’s 1st term to have been illegitimate. Yet when in the room w/him I stood and gave ofc respect,” he tweeted in June 2012.

Simmons’s election-denying tweets – which follow the Biden White House and mainstream media outlets criticizing individuals expressing the same sentiment regarding the 2020 election as purveyors of the “Big Lie” – continued through 2017, as he tweeted “W [Bush] was illegitimate”:

“I worked for Gore. Thought W was illegitimate. Still stood for him in respect for office. Members of Congress should go to inauguration.”

Throughout the 2020 election cycle, Simmons repeatedly blasted Donald Trump for seeking to undermine democracy by raising concerns about election integrity.

“Biden won, then Trump tried to steal the election and inspired a violent insurrection to try to undo the democratic result. Imposing consequences on a lawless president isn’t political. It’s patriotic,” he tweeted on February 12th, 2021.

In September 2020, he also insisted#DonaldTrump is trying to steal the electionin a tweet and lamented “we can’t let Trump try to undermine the election.”

Similarly, Simmons accused Trump of falsely blaming Democrats for seeking to “steal an election”:

“Trump’s speech: I did everything good. Not the United States. Me. Anything wrong, not my fault. Dems gonna try to steal election and ruin your life.”
