Is Cole Harris a self made business genius or did he marry Mainland Chinese money?
Are illegal funds from Mainland China being used to influence the California Lieutenant Governor election?
Why does Cole Harris only do interviews with Foreign Asian based media but refuses to meet reporters from American?
Does he get California government taxpayer contracts for overseas investors?
Cole Harris said he could put $10 Million more into Lt. Gov race. Who is following the money?
None of what California Lieutenant Governor candidate Cole Harris states on his website seem to be true.
He describes himself as a "self-made businessman and entrepreneur" but none of the finances that he filed with the California Secretary of State or on his website seem believable.
The campaign for David Fennell for California Lieutenant Governor reviewed his government campaign filings and with seasoned business leaders it became obvious that none of what these seasoned business leaders saw in Cole Harris's finances or business story looked credible. Our video producer put our "Who is Cole Harris?" video on the website early while we were still gathering facts. We were quickly contacted by multiple unsolicited sources who grew up with Cole Harris and indicated he was a financial fraud.
California residents who grew up with Harris reported to us that Cole Harris was an uneducated petty thug known for his sexual abuse of women which lead to his multiple arrests. He struggled in high school, did not go to college, left the area after the rape charges and later ended up in China.
These sources indicated that Cole then married the daughter of a billionaire in mainland China. His marriage allowed some mainland China family members to get visas to the USA. One source said that the father-in-law made his money in Chinese noodles. Since Cole Harris refuses to do a debate or take interviews from the media, no one can be sure what is true and what is rumor.
AT THE CALIFORNIA REPUBLICAN PARTY CONVENTION HE RECEIVED THE PARTY ENDORSEMENT AFTER A SPEECH WHERE HE CLAIMED TO BE A SELF-MADE BUSINESS MAN THAT STARTED HIS SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES IN COLLEGE.
HOWEVER, LEGAL DOCUMENTS AND INDIVIDUALS WHO GREW UP WITH COLE HARRIS INDICATE THAT HE DID NOT GO TO COLLEGE AND AT IN FACT WAS ARRESTED FOR RAPE IN HIS EARLY TWENTIES WHEN HE WAS WORKING AS A PLUMBER AND WAS REPRESENTED BY A PUBLIC DEFENDER.
Normally candidates try to take as many interviews as possible to get as much attention to their campaign as they can. Cole Harris, however, has refused to debate his opponent David Fennell, participate in any candidate forums, or take interviews from American journalists. This is not normal behavior for a candidate who is not hiding something.
The information we have indicated that Cole Harris has received the majority of his original financing from Mainland Chinese sources but seems to now be getting California government contracts on behalf of foreign investors.
While it is fine to have foreign investors. If these investors are benefiting from government contracts and influencing a political campaign, those sources and deals need to be open for the public to review.
The David Fennell for California Lieutenant Governor campaign wants a chance to have the normal Lieutenant Governor debate with his opponent Cole Harris so we can ask the candidate if what people are saying about his finances are true.
Given that Cole Harris has put millions of dollars into a campaign for a position that pays less than one hundred and forty-thousand dollars, you would think the American Media covering the June primary would ask the simple questions:
Did you get your money from Mainland Chinese sources?
Do you get any California tax payer contracts?
Why are all the interviews you do only with overseas Asian groups?
Why do you refuse to do debates or take questions from American reporters?
Below are links to some of Cole Harris's interview with foreign reporters.
Isn't it time for an American reporter covering the upcoming California election to ask this multimillionaire the hard questions about his finances, his education and his arrest record?
