A document that was deleted from the website of a progressive group shows Democratic congressional candidate Katie Porter, who is running in California’s competitive 45th district against Republican representative Mimi Walters, would immediately back a far-left agenda and legislation if elected to Congress, including creating a commission to study reparations for slavery.
The document was uploaded to the Progressive Democrats of America’s website but was deleted after the Washington Free Beacon contacted the group over a similar document in relation to Harley Rouda, the Democratic candidate in California’s 48th congressional district. Before contacting the group about Rouda’s answers, the Free Beacon downloaded responses by other candidates in the event the group scrubbed the files from the site, which they did.
On a questionnaire Porter submitted to the Progressive Democrats of America as she was seeking the group’s endorsement, she signaled that she would support far-left legislation despite telling CNBC in early September that Democrats would “go to work in a serious way on the most pressing issues facing Americans.”
Porter signaled that she would immediately support the likes of the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act, the creation of a Department of Peacebuilding, the Jobs for All Act, the Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, and the Raise the Wage Act, among a slew of other pieces of far-left legislation.
