Former San Fran DA Kamala Harris Sworn in as California's 1st African American State Attorney General...

Yep! The swearing-in took place yesterday at the California Museum for History, Women & the Arts in Los Angeles. Amidst the hoopla of Governor Jerry Brown's Inauguration, Harris' swearing-in went under the radar. The post wasn't an easy one for her to win. In fact, the ballot counts went on well beyond last November's election week due to the close-running between her and running-mate L.A.'s District Attorney Steve Cooley.  It was an ugly fight with contested ballots and mud-slinging but Kamala Harris won it, fair and square. She's the first African-American and first Indian-American State Attorney General in California’s history. Props to her! Yes, MAJOR Congrats!
