California’s Attorney General Kamala Harris, who is “by far the best-looking” attorney general in America, according to President Barack Obama, is now engaged to be married, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Harris, who lives in San Francisco, is engaged to Los Angeles attorney Douglas Emhoff, who runs the Venable LLP law firm and has two children from a previous marriage. They plan to live in both cities, she told the Chronicle.
The happy news of Harris’s engagement comes exactly a year after President Obama praised her appearance–and her skill–at a Democratic Party fundraiser in California. Under criticism, he apologized for the remark.
Harris is known, among other things, for refusing to defend the state’s Proposition 8 of 2008, which enshrined traditional marriage until being struck down by the courts.
She has recently come under criticism by Republican challengers for failing to take up the issue of political corruption within her own party, after three Democratic state senators were indicted or convicted of federal crimes. Harris is up for re-election later this year.
