    How did one of those deadly fires start!? The electric company was at fault. Maybe if Cali was sooo concerned bout their citizens then they should’ve done sumthin better to fix the problem, instead of giving all the free crap to the illegals

    CA isn’t doing anything for the fire victims. Fairy Brown also allowed our electric company to charge the customers for their neglected infrastructure. And no one here tales K. Harris seriously. Anyone who began their political career by “servicing” the married mayor of San Francisco cannot be trusted.
