The speechwriting team belonging to Vice Pres. Kamala Harris has lost its lead writer with Kate Childs Graham having been confirmed this week to be joining a host of ex colleagues who have quit.
It comes during reports of a recent reset in Vice Pres. Harris’s office as she continues to battle low poll numbers and the Biden administration attempts to step up its engagement with the public with more travel by the pres. and his vice pres.
Herbie Ziskend paid tribute to his fellow colleague departing when he announced her exit on social media:
“Kate is a committed, hilarious, hard-working women – a great friend and colleague,” he stated. “I will miss working with her each and every day, but I am excited for her and her next adventure.”
The departure follows many farewell messages as employees have left the team of the vice pres., a lot of them exiting public facing employment in the press office.
Not only have the staff been leaving, those who stay are complaining of problems and enduring constant backstabbing, dissatisfaction and chaos.
Many sources have leaked information to the establishment news details of the feud that has consumed Vice Pres. Harris’s office which has also spilled out over to the larger portion of Pres. Joe Biden’s administration.
The infighting with Vice Pres. Harris’s staffers has resulted in four staff members heading for the exits prior to the new year.
The lack of organization in the office has left many staffers feeling like that have been “treated like shit” with a work environment of “abuse.”
Aides have also revealed their anxiety over the “white man” Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg’s possible 2024 presidential bid, while calling it “disrespectful” to Vice Pres. Harris. Pete Buttigieg, however, has downplayed what his ambitions are publicly.
“It is obvious things are not in a great place, so I can understand the desire to sub in a newer team but that misdiagnoses the issue,” another insider said to the Hill of Pres. Harris’s office. “The issue is there has never been a strategy that was coherent. It has always been more of an operation that goes from one chaotic moment on to the next.”
