The hits just keep on coming for Kamala Harris.
Two more of her staffers have allegedly quit.
Vincent Evans, who was Harris’ deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, left to take a new job on Capitol Hill.
Meanwhile, Peter Velz has also decided to call it quits.
Velz was Harris’ director of press operations.
The timing of both of their decisions to leave comes as claims of “bullying and mismanagement” intensify within her office.

Our friends at the Daily Wire have more on Vincent Evans’ decision to quit:
Vincent Evans, deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, has quit to take on a new job on Capitol Hill, CNBC reported Wednesday. He left to join the Congressional Black Caucus, which is headed by Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH), which certainly appears to be less than a lateral move.
He is the latest top staffer to leave the veep’s office amid reports that Harris is a “bully” who levels “soul-destroying criticism” in a highly dysfunctional office. Last month, her spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, and her communications director Ashley Etienne, left Harris’ office.
Etienne’s exit announcement came on the heels of devastating USA Today/Suffolk University polling that showed Harris earning a dismal 28% approval rating, 10 points behind President Joe Biden’s, who sat at a not-so-pretty 38% approval. Biden is apparently not too happy about Harris’ numbers, with one report saying she’s not even considered to be Biden’s successor in the White House anymore, while another said the president is considering moving her to the Supreme Court so he can pick a new veep who might have a chance to win in 2024.
Evans confirmed his departure on Wednesday:
I am deeply honored to be named the Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus. As we write the next chapter of the CBC story, I am excited for the opportunity to lend my experience and passion for supporting the collective vision of this storied Caucus. Onward. https://t.co/JT40k4xgBy

On the same day, Peter Velz announced his own departure:
Today is my last day at the White House, and it truly has been an honor. I will be forever grateful to Vice President Harris, the incredible Team @VP, and I'm so proud of our work this past year supporting this historic Administration.

SEVENTH aide since Harris's border trip announces he is leaving https://t.co/21t4UXK71R

According to Daily Mail, Evans is the seventh aide to leave her office since her disastrous trip to the southern border back in June:
Kamala Harris has now lost at least seven aides since her disastrous southern border trip on June 25 after her director of press operations Peter Velz confirmed Wednesday he is leaving his role with the White House.
Velz’s announcement comes in the midst of a staff exodus following reports the vice president is a ‘bully’ who facilitates a toxic work environment and other reports indicate tensions between the president’s staff and Harris’.
‘Today is my last day at the White House, and it truly has been an honor,’ Velz tweeted on Wednesday. ‘I will be forever grateful to Vice President Harris, the incredible Team @VP, and I’m so proud of our work this past year supporting this historic Administration.’
The optics on this are just plain bad for Harris.
The accusations of a poor work environment within her office have only persisted since her disastrous trip to the southern border, where Harris made a complete fool of herself.

This woman is obviously not prepared for anything

This embarrassing moment came just after Harris was pressed on why she hadn’t visited the border by Lester Holt:
Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn't get it.
Holt: "Do you have any plans to visit the border?"
Harris: "We've been to the border. We've been the border."
Holt: "YOU haven't been to the border."
Harris: "…..and I haven't been to Europe. I don't understand the point you're making." pic.twitter.com/fFXMf8X0b6

Claims began to come out immediately that Harris’ office was a toxic environment and that she was unprepared for meetings.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that such a mass exodus has occurred since.
