Less than a year after taking office as California's attorney general in 2011, current U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris reached a nearly $35,000 settlement deal with a top aide in her office who had been fired over an undisclosed dispute.
In 2011, Harris' office and Carbaugh reached a deal through which Carbaugh would receive $34,900 if she agreed to leave quietly, according to a document obtained by Business Insider.
The agreement came up before -- during Harris’ brief presidential run -- but has now resurfaced as she appears to be on the shortlist to join Biden on the Democratic Party's 2020 ticket.
Biden’s VP vetting team has seen the settlement document, a former staffer for the senator told Business Insider.
Harris reportedly told Dodd.
