Chris Kelly’s former job probably seemed like an asset when he jumped into the race for California Attorney General – in a state so closely identified with technological innovation, he was one of the executive leaders of Facebook.
The problem for Kelly now is that his title was Chief Privacy Officer. Having that position for Facebook is kind of like being a nutritionist for KFC – it doesn’t come with much credibility.
How bad is it? Not only is Kelly’s opponent using his association with Facebook against him in a television ad, but in that same ad she’s actually bragging about being endorsed by Nancy Pelosi.
The irony, of course, comes in the picture of Pelosi used in the endorsement, which looks to be a few years old and looks nothing like she does now.
In other words, it’s a typical Facebook picture.
