VP Kamala Harris is said to be running an “abusive office,” according to The Daily Wire.
Reports state that morale is low and staff has alleged that fresh ideas are simply ignored.
Harris is reportedly spontaneous and makes hasty decisions, for example, her recent trip to visit El Paso.
Harris allegedly keeps her staff on a need-to-know basis.
Important messages and details are not properly shared throughout the office community.
If an issue arises the blame is often pointed elsewhere.
“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment.”
“It’s not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated.”
“It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s***.”
“She’s been in public life for 30 years. F***.”
“You don’t just all of a sudden go radio silent,” a former aide shared.
“She is the most perceptive person on the planet.”
“She might not have first-hand knowledge, but it’s hard to imagine she doesn’t have a sense of what’s going on.”
“We are not making rainbows and bunnies all day.”
“What I hear is that people have hard jobs and I’m like ‘welcome to the club,’” Sanders shared.
“We have created a culture where people, if there is anything anyone would like to raise, there are avenues for them to do so.”
“Whoever has something they would like to raise, they should raise it directly.”
“This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly,” Mehlenbacher stated.
“While I still believe that Senator Harris is the strongest candidate to win in the General Election in 2020, I no longer have confidence in our campaign or its leadership.”
From The Daily Wire:
The state of Harris’ office has allegedly caught the eye of President Joe Biden, raising concerns on his team. As Politico reported:
The dysfunction in the VP’s ranks threatens to complicate the White House’s carefully crafted image as a place staffed by a close-knit group of professionals working in concert to advance the president’s agenda. It’s pronounced enough that members of the president’s own team have taken notice and are concerned about the way Harris’ staffers are treated.
Much of the blame from Harris’ staff falls on Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy, a veteran Democratic politico who worked closely with former President Bill Clinton before joining Harris’ team. Flournoy reportedly keeps tight control over Harris’ schedule and often blocks long-time acquaintances and even powerful donors from talking to the vice president. Flournoy’s alleged gatekeeping is also blocking the vice president from tending to her own political future by building relationships with other influential people.
One former long-time Harris aide said that nothing is happening in Harris’ office that the vice president is unaware of, however.
