Kamala Harris may have violated the law with latest church video

Vice President Kamala Harris may have violated the law by sending a recent video to black churches to encourage churchgoers to support Democrat Terry McAuliffe as Virginia’s governor.

Constitutional Law scholar Jonathan Turley has accused Harris of violating The Johnson Amendment, a law that prohibits non-profit churches from supporting a particular candidate.

Violating the Law

Turly noted, “The ‘Johnson Amendment’ makes such political pitches in churches a violation of federal law. The violation occurred just days after the filing of a complaint against Jen Psaki for violating the Hatch Act to support McAullife.”

Rather than one church violation, the endorsement is being aired at hundreds of churches in one state.

Media Silent

While mainstream media has decried conservative efforts in churches in the past, the recent video by Harris has been ignored, though her endorsement was much more blatant.

“What is most hypocritical is that the Democrats used the opposition to the Johnson Amendment by former President Donald Trump as a rallying cry in the last election,” Turley said.

Trump wanted to remove the Johnson Amendment in a nod to religious freedom toward evangelical church leaders. The amendment, however, was never actually ended.

Mainstream media often made the connection between Trump and churches, but Harris has been left alone in her latest church endorsement for Virginia’s governor.

Regardless of one’s view of the Johnson Amendment, Harris seems to not be playing by the rules in efforts to help her party. Most media seem unconcerned, however, as the violation does not fit its leftist narrative.
