ABC moderator stuns Democratic debate crowd by confronting Kamala Harris on her record as California's top prosecutor after she changes positions on marijuana and police shootings, and demands to know 'why you didn't try to effect change then?'
Excerpt: Linsey Davis confronted the 2020 presidential hopeful about her record while Harris served as California's top prosecutor and asked: 'Why didn't you try to effect change then?' Remarking on Harris' criminal justice reform, Davis said there were 'contradictions' on some of her positions. 'You said that you’ve changed on these and other things because you were, quote, "swimming against the current and thankfully, the currents have changed," Davis said, before adding that she didn't try when she 'had the power.' (The Davises were the only black family in our neighborhood. All our streets are named after states, except Saluga Trail, the name of which was changed when the Salugas' son bought it in Nam in '67. The Davises used to live across the street from the monument they put up to his memory. Peter)
