(Full disclosure, I support Harris at this time.)

Just days after former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg announces he raised $7M in the first quarter of 2019, to much media hooplah and swooning, Kamala Harris almost doubles his efforts disclosing she raised $12M.

Sorry, but being gay is no more a “qualification” than being straight. Being in the arts my entire life, I have known hundreds of LGBTQ people, some great, some appalling.
