In 1994 the 30-year-old Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, who at that time was the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, making him one of the most powerful politicians in the state. Brown had been separated but not divorced from his wife since the 1980s. In June of ’94, Harris took a leave of absence from her job as a deputy prosecutor in Alameda County and was appointed by Harris to a $97,000-per-year position with the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board (CUIAB). Harris then resigned from that board five months later and was immediately appointed by Brown to a $70,000-per-year job with the California Medical Assistance Commission (CMAC), a post she would hold until 1998. Harris had no medical background whatsoever when she joined the CMAC, which was noteworthy in light of the fact that Commission members were technically required to have experience in health-and-medical-related fields. Moreover, all the other CMAC members were former state officials who were either nearing retirement or already semi-retired, thus Harris was approximately three decades younger than anyone else on the Commission. According to former California Republican state assemblyman Brett Granlund: “Both boards [CUIAB and CMAC] are reserved for political payback or occasionally for personal rewards for personal service. The boards are considered plumb appointments as they require no work, no policy credentials, and are paid the equivalent of a full-time [state] senator for arriving at a one-to-two-hour meeting each month.”
