Stunningly brave Kamala Harris has vowed that “there will be penalties” for corporations who don’t close the gender pay gap:
In America today, women are paid 80 cents on the dollar. It is an outrage and has to change. Tomorrow, I will announce a plan to close the pay gap and hold corporations accountable. There will be penalties if they don’t. pic.twitter.com/TI5MDCRsNL

Aside from the fact that the gender pay gap is a myth that’s been debunked more times than we can count, it would seem that Kamala has been so busy being stunning and brave that she’s forgotten to take her own advice:

More from the Washington Free Beacon’s Brent Scher:
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.
Isn’t that interesting?
Article says “It is unclear based on the available information whether men and women were paid equally for equal work both Senate offices and campaign are required only to disclose how much money is disbursed to individuals, not details such as annual salaries or hours worked.

But that shouldn’t matter, right? The only reason a woman would be paid less than a man is sexism. Pure, unadulterated sexism.
A spokesman for Harris’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment on the gender pay gaps in her Senate office and on her campaign, and whether either would be granted “equal pay certification” under her proposed system.
Well, technically Kamala Harris’ office is not a corporation … so maybe she thinks she’s exempt from her own equality crusade? In any event, this is not a good look for her.
