Kamala Harris raised some eyebrows while bringing her political agenda to Virginia churches. During an interview released on Wednesday, a prominent law professor, Jonathan Turley, said her outreach strategy for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe is illegal.

At least 300 black churches in Virginia have agreed to play a prerecorded video in which Harris urges churchgoers to vote for McAuliffe. This comes as Harris claims McAuliffe possesses a “clear vision about how to rebuild Virginia’s economy.”

George Washington University Law School Professor Turley stressed that churches are not allowed to directly intervene in political campaigns due to their tax exempt status.
