California Governor Gavin Newsom appointed scandal-ridden California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to serve in the US Senate if (God forbid) Harris is sworn into office in January.
Kamala Harris still has not given a date for her resignation.
“The son of Mexican immigrants — a cook and house cleaner — Alex Padilla worked his way from humble beginnings to the halls of MIT, the Los Angeles City Council and the State Senate, and has become a national defender of voting rights as California’s Secretary of State,” Newsom said in a statement on Tuesday. “Now, he will serve in the halls of our nation’s Capitol as California’s next United States Senator, the first Latino to hold this office.”

“I am honored and humbled by the trust placed in me by Governor Newsom, and I intend to work each and every day to honor that trust and deliver for all Californians,” Padilla said.
Did Alex Padilla illegally purchase his senate seat?
Alex Padilla is a crooked Democrat politician who has been swimming in the California swamp for decades.
Republicans on the House Oversight and House Administration Committees earlier this month demanded an investigation into Alex Padilla over a “highly questionable” taxpayer-funded $35 million no-bid contract his office gave to a firm linked to the Biden campaign.
Padilla’s office took grant money from a Coronavirus stimulus package and funneled it to the Biden-linked firm to influence the federal election.
“As you know, the use of HAVA funds for voter contact is a violation of the law,” Republican lawmakers wrote. “According to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, HAVA grants cannot be used to get out the vote or encourage voting.”
“Secretary Padilla’s decision to fast-track a no-bid contract to a pro-Biden firm raises serious ethical and legal questions and we must have answers immediately,” GOP Rep. Comer said in a statement to Fox News. “It appears taxpayer funds were illegally allocated by Padilla’s office to enable Democrat operatives to contact voters and potentially have access to sensitive voter information.”
The California Secretary of State Alex Padilla awarded a $35 million dollar contract to a firm actively working to elect Joe Biden. This is a misuse of taxpayer money, a violation of the law, and demands an immediate investigation. https://t.co/wh1HsBt1u1

Yet again, Democrats are using TAXPAYER dollars funding a Biden-linked firm…
