The door to Vice President Kamala Harris’ office can’t seem to stop swinging open, as now four different staff members have announced their departure since a CNN exposé claimed there were problems among staff in the White House.
Director of Press Operations for the Vice President, Peter Velz, and Deputy Director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs Vince Evans will both be leaving Harris’ office.
That’s after two top staffers have done the same – Harris’ press secretary Symone Sanders and communications director Ashley Etienne.

Latest To Resign Will Be Following Others
Sanders, so far the highest profile exit, said of her resignation in a letter:
“I’m so grateful to the VP for her vote of confidence from the very beginning and the opportunity to see what can be unburdened by what has been. I’m grateful for Tina and her leadership and her confidence as well. Every day, I arrived to the White House complex knowing our work made a tangible difference for Americans. I am immensely grateful and will miss working for her and with all of you.”
Another one of Harris’s top aides resigned.
Do you remember the reaction of the left and their media every time someone resigned when Trump was President?

The issues within the Vice President’s office are apparently nothing new. A report from Politico from back in June, said that at least 22 current and former aides of Harris, and others close to the Biden-Harris administration, describe the office atmosphere as “tense” and “dour.”
Some of those same people feel that in an attempt by Flournoy to protect Harris, the office environment that has been created is one where ideas that are brought up are either brutally dismissed, if not ignored altogether.
They say that Harris often will not take responsibility for sensitive issues and blames staff when trouble arises.
Another top Kumquat adviser bites the dust. That’s 2 major exits:
-Chief spokesperson will leave at end of year.
-Harris’ communications director will also leave this month.
They don’t even have jobs lined up. It’s like rats abandoning a sinking ship.https://t.co/fMeshhZK87

Confusing Role For Harris
A report from CNN says that Harris and her allies feel she is not being put in a position to make the office of the Vice President her own. Joe Biden named her the immigration czar in March to deal with the crisis at the U.S. southern border. She has gone as far as El Paso once.
While the 2024 presidential election is still a long way off, Joe Biden says he will run for reelection. If that happens and he would be reelected, he would leave office at 86 years old.
