It’s been 8 days after the Inauguration and Kamala Harris has yet to move into the Vice President’s residence.
According to multiple reports, Harris and her husband won‘t immediately move into the Naval Observatory but instead are staying at the Blair House.
The Blair House is the president’s official guest residence and it’s located right across from the White House.
The reason for her staying at the Blair house is due to “maintenance” happening at the Naval Observatory.
Which is hard to believe considering if China can build a COVID treatment hospital in 6 days, why can’t renovations to the vice president’s house be quicker?
I understand there are codes to follow but the government has all the best resources at their fingertips what’s taking so long?
Somethings definitely fishy here.

Let’s see what CBS had to add to the story:
Vice President Kamala Harris won’t immediately move into the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory in northwest Washington, D.C., that is traditionally used by vice presidents, an aide for Harris told CBS News. The aide said that the delay is due to the need for some repairs to the home.
Because Harris won’t be staying at the house at One Observatory Circle immediately, it will “allow for repairs to the home that are more easily conducted with the home unoccupied,” the aide said. Chimney liners need to be replaced and other household maintenance will be performed, now that Vice President Mike Pence and his family have moved out.

WBOY News had more details to add on the Blair House:
Vice President Kamala Harris can’t beat the work commute.
She’s living temporarily at Blair House, the president’s official guest residence on Pennsylvania Avenue across from the White House, while some repair work is done at the official vice presidential home a few miles away on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory.
Harris moved into Blair House the day after the Jan. 20 inauguration, said spokesperson Symone Sanders.
