Presidential Contender Caught Discriminating Against Women

A plan floated by California Senator Kamala Harris would eliminate the gender pay gap – by heavily fining companies for even a one percent difference.

However, men are being paid more than women in her Senate office and on her presidential campaign, exposing glaring hypocrisies. (Washington Free Beacon)
 

In her Senate office's most recent six-month disclosure, covering the period from April 1, 2018, through Sept. 31, 2018, the median male salary disbursement was $34,999 and the median female salary disbursement was $32,999, leaving women with just 94 cents of every dollar paid to men.

The gender pay gap for the previous six-month period, during which the median male salary was $27,167 and the median female salary was $25,749.97, was a nearly identical 6 percent.

The pay gap was even greater during the first full month of Harris's presidential campaign in February—the median female salary disbursement for the month, $5,763.97, was about 87 percent of the median male salary disbursement, $6,632.23, a further analysis of her campaign filing found.

The Harris campaign came closer to gender pay equality in March when the median female disbursement was about 95 percent of the median male disbursement.
