It seems no one wants to be with Kamala Harris’s side, even her own people are leaving her and don’t want to associate their name with Harris. The fallout is expected but not this rush.
Recently, Harris is losing another aide as departures from the vice president’s office in recent months continue to pile up.
Vincent Evans, Kamala Harris’ deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, is leaving his post for the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC).
Evans leave amid rumors of turmoil in the Biden-Harris Administration just weeks after four Harris staffers announced they were leaving. Additionally, frustrations within the White House were directed at Harris and her chief of staff, Tina Flournoy.
Evans said in a statement:
“I am deeply honored to be named the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus. I started my career in Washington working for a member of the CBC, so I know firsthand the tremendous leadership and impact this caucus has in Congress and across the country.”
Excerpt from CNBC reports:
Another key aide is leaving Vice President Kamala Harris’ office following the departure of two other advisors.
Vincent Evans, Harris’ deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, has taken a top job at the Congressional Black Caucus, he said in a statement provided to CNBC.
The CBC is led by Black lawmakers who advocate for issues important to minority communities across the country. The group is chaired by Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio.
Evans was a political director for Harris during the transition and held the same post while she was a nominee for vice president during the later stages of the run-up to the 2020 election, according to his LinkedIn profile.
A person familiar with Evans’ departure says he is leaving on great terms with the vice president, and that he plans to maintain his close relationship with her. The move, this person added, has nothing to do with the other recent departures. Harris, according to this person, supports Evans’ decision. The person declined to be named in order to speak freely about the job change.
According to former staffers, Kamala Harris is a ‘bully’ – they all had to endure her abuse.
In fact, one former staffer told the Washington Post:
“It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work. With Kamala, you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why.”
Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s Communications Chief resigned just one day after Kamala Harris’ Comms Director announced she is leaving the administration.
