Rep. Karen Bass, who is reportedly among Joseph R. Biden’s short list of potential running mates, eulogized a top member of the Communist Party USA in 2017, calling him a “friend and mentor” who was “instrumental” in her early political career.

According to remarks she entered into the Congressional Record, Ms. Bass praised Oneil Marion Cannon, a top member of the Communist Party USA for decades, several days after his death, Politico first reported.

“Oneil was instrumental in supporting my own work as a community organizer early in my life, and without his help my life would have taken a very different path,” Ms. Bass said at the time. “I would like to salute Oneil Cannon for his long-standing commitment to serving and uplifting others, and for a century of fighting to make the world a better place.”
