Most politicians have two Facebook pages — one is their campaign page, and they have a separate one if they win election and take office.
Such is the case for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
But Harris, rather than tend to her “politician” page, has turned it over to the Democratic National Committee, and its army of operatives at the DNC Services Corp, a political action committee of the DNC.
Although Harris has relinquished control of her own Facebook Page, Facebook has not caught up with her and awards her the coveted “blue check,” which is the verification of veracity.
Under the “page transparency” tab, it’s clear that whatever is going on on the Kamala Harris page, it’s the Democrats who are in charge of it.
This is an oddity, but rules are different for some political leaders. While Facebook and Twitter have banned Donald Trump, we could find no other instance where a politician had given up their page and their personal brand to the political party they represent.
“Sounds like she has a future with the party, but he doesn’t,” said Tuckerman Babcock, former chair of the Alaska Republican Party.
