What do Kamala Harris‘ former staff members have to say about her now that they’ve quit?
Let’s just say the phrases “bully” and “soul-destroying” have been used…
Several of her former aides have come forth with their opinions of her treatment of them, which was recently revealed to the Washington Post.
Harris’ management style is described as “soul-destroying,” and many of her ex-employees call her a “bully.”
One staffer said that Harris has a history of “destructive patterns.”
Harris should have had no problem besting the popularity of Joe Biden.
Alas, when you treat your staff like crap, it comes back to bite you.
Here's more on what former aides had to say about Harris from our friends at the New York Post:
Vice President Kamala Harris is described as a “bully” in a new report that brands her as the “common denominator” behind a recent exodus of high-level staffers.
Harris’ allegedly “soul-destroying” management style was revealed by staffers to the Washington Post just days after spokesperson and longtime aide Symone Sanders announced her departure.
“Who are the next talented people you’re going to bring in and burn through and then have [them] pretend they’re retiring for positive reasons?” former Harris aide Gil Duran told the paper.
Daily Mail has even more details from the former Harris staffers:
The Washington Post piece - a result of interviews with 18 people connected to the VP - also alleges that she'd fail to read briefings they'd prepared, only to turn on them if she was subsequently criticized for being unprepared.
The claims from staff who worked for Harris were published amid confirmed departures of two high level staffers, with two others who are said to be heading for the door too.
'It's clear that you're not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,' a former colleague told the Washington Post.
'With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence.
'So you're constantly sort of propping up a bully and it's not really clear why.' Harris's staffers
Meanwhile, Gil Duran, who worked with Kamala for just five months in 2013 before quitting, said the vice president was 'repeating the same old destructive patterns.'
Writing in his San Francisco Examiner column, he said: 'One of the things we’ve said in our little text groups among each other is what is the common denominator through all this and it’s her.'
Speaking to the Post, he added: 'Who are the next talented people you’re going to bring in and burn through and then have (them) pretend they’re retiring for positive reasons.'
